5.1.1 Data/Application Server (All Platforms)

You must enable debugging and extend the web job timeouts on the data/application server.

For security reasons, Web application debugging is disabled by default. It is strongly recommended that you disable debugging when it is no longer required, especially for production servers.

1. Enable debugging

To enable debugging, select the Allow Interactive Debugging option for the data/application server. To do this:

a.  Start the Web Administrator.

b.  Connect to the data/application server.

c.  Select the Tools Menu.

d.  Select the menu item Configure System.

e.  Select the sub-menu item Data/Application Server.

f.  Select the Miscellaneous tab in the Configure Data/Application Server dialog.

g.  Check (tick) the Allow Interactive Debugging option (as shown below):

2. Extend the Web Job timeout for Web Functions

It is recommended that you extend the Web Job timeout, which is 2 minutes by default for Web Functions, so that the Transaction Monitor does not interfere with the Web Function running in debug mode.

If the Web Function running in debug mode uses browse lists, you may also need to extend the Web Function data timeout, which is 1 hour by default, so that the browse list data can be kept as long as required for the debug session.

To extend the Web Job timeouts, perform the following steps.

a.  Start the Web Administrator.

b.  Connect to the data/application server.

c.  Select the Tools Menu.

d.  Select the menu item Configure System.

e.  Select the sub-menu item Data/Application Server.

f.  Select the Web Functions tab in the Configure Data/Application Server dialog.

g.  Change the timeouts to the desired values.

     Refer to the dialog's Help for information about these settings.

     Close the Web Administrator.
