Logs Redirection



User wants to redirect the following Pega logs to another directory.



The explanation for this behaviour is as follows:

The prlogging.xml (which comes up with prconfig.xml) will have several appender config entries for corresponding Pega logs file. Something like below.

<appender name="PEGA" class="com.pega.pegarules.priv.util.FileAppenderPega">
        <param name="FileNamePattern" value="'@{web.tmpdir}/PegaRULES-'yyyy-MMM-dd'.log'"/>

In this case, PegaRULES log with date stamp gets created in web.tmpdir folder which is inside a tomcat work directory. 

In the below case, it will get created in D drive logs directory.

<appender name="PEGA" class="com.pega.pegarules.priv.util.FileAppenderPega">
        <param name="FileNamePattern" value="'D:logs/PegaRULES-'yyyy-MMM-dd'.log'"/>

User will have to prefix the custom directory to the log name and repeat this step for the corresponding log appenders.

Please note that a server restart is required to apply these changes.
