Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1450) SMTPAppender support for runtime lookup
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2016 17:27:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1450?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15362818#comment-15362818
] 

Benjamin Jaton commented on LOG4J2-1450:
----------------------------------------

Reloading the configuration seems fine to me. I use a custom StrLookup to resolve my SMTP
settings so I really only have to reload the same conf again to trigger the re-creation of
that javax.mail.Session object.

What's the preferred way to programatically trigger a reload of the configuration?

Should I open a separate bug for the email subject?

> The SMTPAppender doesn't support using:
> {noformat}{
>         "type" : "smtp",
>         "name" : "EmailAppender",
>         "subject" : "$${email.subject}",
>         "to" : "$${email.recipient}",
>         "from" : "$${email.from}",
>         "smtpProtocol" : "$${email.smtp.protocol}",
>         "smtpHost" : "$${email.smtp.host}",
>         "smtpPort" : "$${email.smtp.port}",
>         "smtpUsername" : "$${email.smtp.username}",
>         "smtpPassword" : "$${email.smtp.password}"
> }{noformat}
> However that would be very useful so that the user doesn't have to reload the whole log4j2
configuration when the SMTP parameters have changed.
