pki-logging ā€” PKI Common Logging Configuration

Location

/usr/share/pki/etc/logging.properties, /etc/pki/logging.properties

Description

PKI clients and tools use java.util.logging (JUL) as the logging framework (see https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/util/logging/package-summary.html).

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

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

.level = WARNING
.handlers = java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler

For more information see the following documents:

- https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/util/logging/ConsoleHandler.html
- https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/util/logging/Level.html

- https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/util/Formatter.html

Customization

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

$ cp /usr/share/pki/etc/logging.properties /etc/pki/logging.properties

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:

LOGGING_CONFIG=/etc/pki/logging.properties

Then restart the application.
