Configure Logging and Tracing
You can centrally configure optional logging and tracing using Administrative templates. This may be helpful when diagnosing any problems related to Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM).
A user account with the AGPM Administrator (Full Control) role, the user account of the Approver who created the Group Policy Object (GPO) used in these procedures, or a user account with the necessary permissions in AGPM is required to complete these procedures. Additionally, a user account with access to the AGPM Server is required to initiate logging on the AGPM Server. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.
To configure logging and tracing for AGPM
In the Group Policy Management Console tree, edit a GPO that is applied to all Group Policy administrators for which you want to turn on logging and tracing. (For more information, see Editing a GPO.)
In the Group Policy Management Editor window, click Computer Configuration, Policies, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, and AGPM.
In the details pane, double-click AGPM: Configure logging.
In the Properties window, click Enabled, and configure the level of detail to record in the logs.
Close the Group Policy Management Editor window. (For more information, see Deploy a GPO.) After Group Policy is updated, you must restart the AGPM Service to start, modify, or stop logging on the AGPM Server. Group Policy administrators must close and restart the GPMC to start, modify, or stop logging on their computers.

- You must be able to edit and deploy a GPO to configure AGPM logging and tracing. See Editing a GPO and Deploy a GPO for additional detail.
