The Platform APIs are embedded into SAP Cloud Platform Open Connectors portal. To go to the Platform APIs , select API Docs.

Select the option PUT /instances/{id}/trace-logging and then select the Try it out button.


Enter the copied connector instance id to your id field and in the config enter the optional duration interval. The default duration is 60 minutes.  The recommendation is to have a short duration as required. After the duration is specified click on the Execute button.
