- <level value="DEBUG" />
You can specify:
Log level Effect None Disables all logging. Debug Logs additional debug information Info Logs information collected when getting changes in the Get latest tab. Warn Logs information collected when minor errors occur. Error Logs information collected when mid-level errors occur.
