Spring Boot logging pattern

logbackspringspring-boot

I have a problem with configuration on Logback in a Spring Boot application. I want my consoleAppender to look like the default Spring Boot console appender. How to inherit pattern from Spring Boot default console appender?

Below is my consoleAppender configuration

<appender name="consoleAppender" class="ch.qos.logback.core.ConsoleAppender">
    <layout class="ch.qos.logback.classic.PatternLayout">
        <Pattern class="org.">
            %d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss} [%thread] %-5level %logger{36} - %msg%n
        </Pattern>
    </layout>
</appender>

Best Solution

Once you have included the default configuration, you can use its values in your own logback-spring.xml configuration:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration scan="true">
    <!-- use Spring default values -->
    <include resource="org/springframework/boot/logging/logback/defaults.xml"/>

    <appender name="CONSOLE" class="ch.qos.logback.core.ConsoleAppender">
        <encoder>
            <pattern>${CONSOLE_LOG_PATTERN}</pattern>
            <charset>utf8</charset>
        </encoder>
    </appender>
    …
</configuration>
