How to prevent the display of traceback details

By default to facilitate debugging, interactive users can view Java traceback details from a link in the exception form. In production systems, this display is not meaningful to users and discloses internal details that in some situations could be considered a security risk.

Optionally, you can suppress this display by using the following prconfig.xml file Dynamic System Setting: prconfig/initialization/displayexceptiontraceback/default

Changing this setting does not affect the logging of traceback details in the Pega logs.

The following values are valid for this Dynamic System Setting:

Value Description
true Traceback details appear in displayed exception forms. (Default)
false Traceback details appear in displayed exception forms.
Updating Dynamic System Settings can have a significant impact on the operation of your system.
