Error description

  • After upgrading WebSphere Application Server from version
    8.5.0.2 to 8.5.5.1, when enabling WebServices Security SAML
    runtime trace, getting this message:
    The configured trace state included the
    following specifications that do not match any
    loggers currently registered in the server:
    ''com.ibm.ws.wssecurity.saml.*=all''
    This is likely to occur when specifiying trace events for a
    specific package.  The issue is that the specific package does
    not match the "registered loggers", a set of of groups and
    classes that are registered to the trace service.
    One might also see TRAS0040I messages logged, for example
    [10/22/14 19:17:22:249 EDT] 00000120 ManagerAdmin  I
    TRAS0040I: The configured trace state included the following
    specifications that do not match any loggers currently
    registered in the server: com.ibm.ws.wssecurity.saml.*=all
    This message appearing to be an error, although user later
    finding out that there is no problem with this trace
    specification.
