Define log levels for specific package or class names in the log4j2.xml file to get more or less detailed logging from a class or group of classes.

Class or package loggers are defined in the <AsyncLogger>name attribute. For example, the following line enables cookie logging:

<AsyncLogger name="com.pingidentity.pa.core.interceptor.CookieLoggingInterceptor" level="TRACE" additivity="false" includeLocation="false">
    <AppenderRef ref="File"/>
</AsyncLogger>
Note:

If you don't specify a log level for a particular package or class, it inherits the settings for the root logger.

For information on how to configure log levels in the administrative console instead, see Log settings.

To configure the log level for a class or package in the log4j2.xml file:

  1. Open conf/log4j2.xml in a text editor.
  2. Locate the <AsyncLogger> element for the package or class you want to adjust the logging level for.
    <AsyncLogger name="com.pingidentity" level="DEBUG" additivity="false" includeLocation="false">
  3. Set the level value in the <AsyncLogger> element to one of the following values:

    OFF, FATAL, ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG, and TRACE.

    To apply TRACE level logging for the com.pingidentity package, locate the following line:
    <AsyncLogger name="com.pingidentity" level="DEBUG" additivity="false" includeLocation="false">
    Change it to:
    <AsyncLogger name="com.pingidentity" level="TRACE" additivity="false" includeLocation="false">
  4. Save the modified file.
PingAccess automatically makes the changes effective within 30 seconds.
