  3. Select Security > Filter.
  4. Select the Connection Logger Enabled checkbox to enable the logging of accepted messages. The Connection Logger logs successful connections and connection data in the server. This information can be used to debug problems relating to server connections.

  7. Click Save.
  8. In the Change Center, click Activate Changes. If automatic realm restart is enabled in the default realm, you do not need to restart WebLogic Server for changes to go into effect.
