Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-168) Include arbitrary message fields in RFC-5424 structured data
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2013 16:42:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-168?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13602407#comment-13602407

----------------------------------------

OK, I'm still just not getting the wiring for this  case. I've switched from "MDCFields" to
"LoggerFields", as this really doesn't have anything to do with MDC. However, I'd appreciate
suggestions if there's a better name.

Here's snippits of what I have:

LoggerFields.java:
---
@Plugin(name = "LoggerFields", type = "Core")
public final class LoggerFields {
...
    public static Map<String, String> createKeyValuePairsMap(
                                             @PluginElement("LoggerFields") final KeyValuePair[]
keyValuePairs) {
---

SyslogAppender.java
---
    @PluginFactory
    public static SyslogAppender createAppender(
...
                                                @PluginElement("loggerFields") Map<String,
String> loggerFields) {
     
---

log4j2.xml:
---
                <Syslog
                                name="syslog"
                                format="RFC5424"
...
                >
                        <LoggerFields>
                                <KeyValuePair key="Logger" value="%logger"/>
                        </LoggerFields>
                </Syslog>
---


Console output:
---
ERROR appender Syslog has no parameter that matches element LoggerFields
---


What am I missing? Sorry for all the back-and-forth, but I'm not sure what's going on. I've
also tried <loggerFields> (versus <LoggerFields>) in the config, but it still
complained about the mismatched element name.

> We'd really like to see the logger and/or location be included in RFC-5424 structured
data. As such, we've developed a small patch to allow arbitrary PatternLayout names to be
configured on the SyslogAppender, which are then included in the structured data.
> Patch to follow shortly.
