Configuring logger settings

Suggest edit Updated on April 5, 2022

This content applies only to On-premises and Client-managed cloud environments

In a development environment, you can enable logging by adding the appropriate logger settings in the prlog4j2.xml file. In a production environment, most standard logging is set to warn and should remain at this level. For more information on log levels, see the Apache Log4j documentation.

  • Open the prlog4j2.xml file and make the necessary edits. This file is located together with the prconfig.xml file. For more information, see Modifying the prconfig.xml file.
  • You can also set log levels in Dev Studio by clicking ConfigureSystemLogsLogging level settings and selecting the logger name and level.
For example:

In the example provided below, logging is set to show warning messages for System Pulse. You can control the level of logging by setting it to another level.


<Logger name="SystemPulse" additivity="false" level="warn">
	<AppenderRef ref="SECURITYEVENT"/>   
</Logger>
