Restart the Transformation Designer

Replicate the issue

Review the TransConf_tracing_output.svclog.

<trace autoflush="true" />
 <source name="Kofax.CEBPM.Server.Repository.Connector" switchName="switch1" switchType="System.Diagnostics.SourceSwitch">
 <add name="xmlListener" />
<source name="Kofax.CEBPM.Server.Repository.SqlCommon" switchName="switch1" switchType="System.Diagnostics.SourceSwitch">
  <add name="xmlListener" />
  <add initializeData="TransConf_tracing_output.svclog" type="System.Diagnostics.XmlWriterTraceListener"
 name="xmlListener" traceOutputOptions="DateTime" />
 <add name="switch1" value="Verbose" />

When to use this feature?

If you experiencing errors when loading the Transformation Designer or within the Transformation Designer, enable additional logging when replicating the behaviour, and review the output of the error log.
