Accessing and Updating the Logging File
Simflofy logging is set in the following file:
You can set the log level of all Simflofy classes by changing the following:
log4j.logger.com.simflofy = debug, simflofy-admin
debug with another valid options:
|ALL||All levels including custom levels.|
|DEBUG||Designates fine-grained informational events that are most useful to debug an application.|
|ERROR||Designates error events that might still allow the application to continue running.|
|FATAL||Designates very severe error events that will presumably lead the application to abort.|
|INFO||Designates informational messages that highlight the progress of the application at coarse-grained level.|
|OFF||The highest possible rank and is intended to turn off logging.|
|TRACE||Designates finer-grained informational events than the DEBUG.|
|WARN||Designates potentially harmful situations.|
In production Simflofy suggests setting logging to the
You'll notice there are other entries, these entries will override the
com.simflofy setting for the specific packages they reference.
log4j.logger.com.simflofy.connectors.sharepoint = trace, simflofy-admin
log4j.additivity.com.simflofy.connectors.sharepoint = false
This sets the SharePoint connector logging to trace. The second line is necessary to prevent double-logging.

Otherwise, you can mix and match these settings to fit your specific logging needs.
Simflofy Admin Log View

On this page the user can download the complete simflofy-admin.log, as well as filter the last 5000 lines of the log file:
|Debug||Info, Error, Debug|
You can also set the value simflofy.max.log.size to prevent performance issues. Default is 10 MB. KB and GB are also valid sizes.
On this page you can add or remove log appenders. Both of which are temporary. There is a list of all available connectors if you wish to modify the logging level for an individual connector.
