By default, whenever an exception is thrown, a brief message displays in the ControlPoint user interface.  

DEVENV false

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, make additional logging and tracing available by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Advanced Logging and Tracking from false to true.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

ControlPoint Online-Specific Settings

The following configuration settings apply specifically to ControlPoint Online and can be found under the category Cloud.

Audit Log Report Data Library (HostedAuditLogReportList)

When an Audit Log analysis is run, ControlPoint Online prompts SharePoint to gather the requested data. The data collected by SharePoint is saved to a document library at the root site of each site collection within the scope of the analysis. By default, this library is called HostedAuditLogReportList.

HostedAuditLogReport Library

ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however save this data to a different library by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting HostedAuditLogReportList.

NOTE: If a library with the specified name does not already exist on the site collection, ControlPoint will attempt to create it the first time the Audit Log Analysis is run.

Additional Configuration Settings for the Hosted Environment

Normally, the following settings will never need to be changed.

HOSTEDFARMGUID - The GUID that ControlPoint Online assigns to the group of site collections (also known as the "virtual farm") to be managed.

HOSTEDFARMNAME - The name of the server on which the ControlPoint Online application is installed, which is used by the application to identify the "virtual farm."

HOSTEDUSERPREFIX - The default value is the prefix used by Office 365 for Claims-based authentication.  If you are using a hosting provider other than Office 365, this parameter should be left blank.
