Update the PingAccess logging file to log iovation events.

This procedure modifies the existing <PA_HOME>/conf/log4j2.xml file to log communications with iovation to a new log file. In a clustered environment, you must perform this procedure on every node.

  1. Edit the <PA_HOME>/conf/log4j2.xml file.
  2. Locate the Appenders section and add a section to create the new log file.
    <RollingFile name="Iovation-File"
                         fileName="${sys:pa.home}/log/pingaccess_iovation_audit.log"
                         filePattern="${sys:pa.home}/log/pingaccess_iovation_audit.%d{yyyy-MM-dd}.log"
                         ignoreExceptions="false">
                <PatternLayout>
                    <pattern>%d{ISO8601}| %X{exchangeId}| %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.trackingNumber} | %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.deviceAlias} | %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.accountCode} | %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.result} | %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.reason} | %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.ruleName} | %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.iovationId} | %X{IOVATION_AUDIT.statedIp} %n</pattern>
                </PatternLayout>
                <Policies>
                    <TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy/>
                </Policies>
    </RollingFile>
