PKI Common Logging Configuration


/usr/share/pki/etc/, /etc/pki/


PKI clients and tools use java.util.logging ⟨⟩ (JUL) as the logging framework.

The default logging configuration is located at /usr/share/pki/etc/

By default only log messages with level WARNING or higher will be logged on the console.

java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = ALL
java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.formatter = java.util.logging.SimpleFormatter

java.util.logging.SimpleFormatter.format = %4$s: %5$s%6$s%n

For more information see the following documents:


To customize the logging configuration, copy the default logging configuration into a new location:

$ cp /usr/share/pki/etc/ /etc/pki/

Then edit the file as needed. For example, to troubleshoot issues with PKI library add the following lines:

netscape.level = ALL
com.netscape.level = ALL
org.dogtagpki.level = ALL

To troubleshoot issues with RESTEasy add the following line:

org.jboss.resteasy.level = ALL

Then specify the location of the custom logging configuration in the following parameter in /etc/pki/pki.conf:


Then restart the application.
