Subject Re: How to encode %m or %ex ?
Date Thu, 25 Jan 2018 18:52:19 GMT
Using %encode{%m}{JSON} will only encode the message so that it can be
placed inside a JSON string with escapes already added. This is useful for
creating custom JSON structures as your output. If you just want structured
log output in general, the JSON layout (requires Jackson) is your best bet.
