Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-1694) Allow to easily add fields with fixed values to JSON output
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2016 18:46:58 GMT
Raimar Falke created LOG4J2-1694:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow to easily add fields with fixed values to JSON output
                 Key: LOG4J2-1694
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1694
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Layouts
            Reporter: Raimar Falke


The Logback JSON Encoder has a feature which allows to specify JSON fields with fixed values.
Link: https://github.com/logstash/logstash-logback-encoder#loggingevent_custom_global

Example:
{noformat}
<encoder class="net.logstash.logback.encoder.LogstashEncoder">
  <customFields>{"appname":"myWebservice","roles":["customerorder","auth"],"buildinfo":{"version":"Version
0.1.0-SNAPSHOT","lastcommit":"75473700d5befa953c45f630c6d9105413c16fe1"}}</customFields>
</encoder>
{noformat}

This is a very convenient way to specify fixed attributes like application, service or environment.

So far I don't see such a possibility in log4j.
