In today’s video, we’ll show you how to create debug logs in Salesforce. When solving problems users may come across in their orgs, it’s often helpful to get a detailed look of what’s actually going on behind the scenes. Using trace flags, we can narrow down logs to just that user or activity, and use the resulting data to analyze what’s going on.To create debug logs in Salesforce, follow these steps: 

1. Navigate to Setup. 
2. In the Quick Find Box, type and select Debug Logs. 
3. Click New. 
4. Select what you’re looking to trace, the duration, and the log level, which specifies the amount of detail that should come through in the log. 
5. Select Save. From here, once logs begin to record, you can view them under Debug Logs to begin troubleshooting issues.
