Enable Client Logging

Client logging writes messages to a persistent log file. The messages are useful for debugging issues with the add-in. Client logging is disabled by default. To activate it:

  1. In Excel, select Add-Ins > Configure MATLAB Production Server.

  2. Select the Client Side Logging tab.

  3. Check the Enable Logging box.

  4. Select the logging level from the Logging Level drop-down list.

    • Error — Log error messages.

    • Information — Log information about server interactions in addition to error messages.

    • Verbose — Log everything.

  5. In the Log File Folder box, enter the folder into which log files are written.

When client logging is enabled, all registered MATLAB® Production Server™ add-ins generate log files. The files follow the naming convention logFolder\addinName-date.log.
