Configure Cloud Identity Agent Logs

Learn how to set the Cloud Identity agent log level to track events on the agent host for troubleshooting.
The Cloud Identity agent logs Cloud Identity Engine events that occur on the agent host. You can use these logs to monitor informational events such as new connections (
Information—New connection 49161
), or for troubleshooting (
Error—Verification of Server Cert failed, stopping Cloud Identity Agent
). For example, the agent automatically generates logs if you test connectivity when you Configure the Cloud Identity Agent. You can also use the Event Viewer on the agent host to review logs created if the agent is unable to connect to the Cloud Identity Engine due to an incorrect bind DN or password, server unavailability, or other issue.
The agent displays logs in the order in which they were generated. To provide a consistent timestamp across timezones, logs include the timezone information in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), where the time offset is indicated by + or -. For the complete log history, check the CloudIdAgentDebug log file on the agent host, which permanently retains all logs.

      , the agent deletes the data from the log after sending it to the debug log on the agent host.
