Idea is generally available. Needs Better Logging Support

Developer Tools

Salesforce NEEDS better logging capabilities for errors/exceptions/security violations/etc. Today Salesforce supports the System Log (when APEX is enabled) at the top of the page, which is very cryptic and limited in feature/function. Salesforce needs post mortum logging, features can be turned on via Configuration->Development->Logging and log through the life of the appication for an acceptable timeframe or rolling logs. Features Include: - Security Exception Logging - APEX Exception Logging/Tracing <not /> - Web2Lead conversion logging <no> - WebService logging - Portal logging - Trace logging (System.debug/others) - Assert messages The support would allow admins/developers to go in after the fact and determine what happended with a rule/trigger/webservice etc and correct the issue. Today a lot of time is spent trying to recreate the issue using the apex cryptic popup log feature.
