Hyperion Financial Management - Version: to - Release: 4.1 to 9.3
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The SharedServices_Security_Client.log file is created by all Hyperion System 9 and Oracle EPM System products and logs communication exchanges between the product and Hyperion Shared Services, for example when a user is logging on to that particular product. 

By default this file is created in the "temp" folder on the Windows machine, and this is sometimes not desirable to some system administrators so default storage location for this log file can be changed.


The steps to change file location are as follows: 

a) Identify the css.jar file being used by the product on the products server, typically <HYPERION_HOME>\Common\CSS\<CSS VERSION>\Lib. 

b) Unzip the css.jar file into a temporary folder. 

c) Edit the file and uncomment (remove the # from) the line 


d) Edit the line to change the file location. If you leave it unchanged the file will be written to the root of c:\ drive with the name css.log 

e) Save the, and re-zip all the files into a new css.jar file. 

f) Replace the css.jar file into the location of the original css.jar and restart the product
