How to remove sensitive data from alert logs



Personal information is logged through Pega alert logging. How to prevent logging this information from the PegaRULES-ALERT log?


  • Add the following setting to prconfig.xml to suppress the sensitive property values:
    • <env name="alerts/database/operationTimeThreshold/suppressInserts" value="true" />
    • This setting will suppress the sensitive property values (and replace them with question marks).
  • To suppress information in parameters, add the following setting to prconfig.xml:
    • <env name="alerts/general/includeparameterpage" value="false" />
    • ​This setting determines if the parameter page of the top-most stackframe will be included in the ALERT log when the alert is generated.
