Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1724) Using variables in GelfLayout's additional fields at runtime
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 17:40:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1724?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15729363#comment-15729363

Ralph Goers commented on LOG4J2-1724:

An ICLA is not required for patches. It is requested for larger contributions and it is required
for a person to become a committer.  The reason for this is that when someone provides a patch
then they are implicitly agreeing to provide the patch under the terms of the Apache license
and are indicating that it is their own work. We request the CLA for larger contributions
to confirm that the individual has the right to contribute it as it is more likely others
may have helped.

> Hello,
> I would like to suggest the following improvements for GelfLayout:
> 1. Using variables in additional fields at runtime. For example resolving "value": "$$\{ctx:key\}"
at runtime as it is done in other places. Thus, custom lookups will be available as well.
> 2. Having an indicator includeThreadContext to control whether the contents of the ThreadContext
should be included. Sometimes it is usable to include only some of its values and then it
will be available using the first suggested improvement by specific variable resolution.
> 3. Resolving HOST attribute in case it is not provided by using for example InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName().
> Regards,
> Alexander
