Details

Log levels

There are 6 levels of logs that you can use:

NameLevel
TRACE5
DEBUG4
INFO3
WARN2
ERROR1
SILENT0

You can set the default log level using the logLevel property in app.config.json. The factory setting for this property is TRACE.

For example, you can set the default log level to WARNING as follows:

app.config.json

{
    "logLevel": "WARN" 
}

Log message bus

The log service also provides an Observable called _onMessage_ that you can subscribe to if you want to receive all the log messages. The message object passed as a parameter to the onMessage handler has the following format:

{
    text: "Message log text"
    type: "ERROR|DEBUG|INFO|LOG|TRACE|WARN|ASSERT"
}

Using the log to feed analytics

You can pass the log output to an analytics system to collect error and assertion data from apps as they run. This can help you spot which problems users are running into most often and the situations in which they occur. See the tutorial about integrating the log service with analytics on the Alfresco Community site for further information.
