Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-5115) Reduce logging for DMI excluded parameters
Date Wed, 28 Apr 2021 08:55:00 GMT


Greg Huber commented on WW-5115:

action:myEdit!save will never match the pattern, so it logs it regardless.

In DefaultExcludedPatternsChecker :

    protected void setDynamicMethodInvocation(String dmiValue) {
        if (!BooleanUtils.toBoolean(dmiValue)) {
            LOG.debug("DMI is disabled, adding DMI related excluded patterns");
It sets the additional excluded pattern for no DMI ie to ignore "^(action|method):.*". 

When DMI is on it does not add the pattern, so it starts logging it.  This to stop this we
need to add the ignored pattern.

The  PR #469 was to modify the DefaultExcludedPatternsChecker interceptor (to reduce the duplication
of logic) but there was no way of telling downstream classes of what to do, so a log flag
was added to ExcludedPatternsChecker the inner class IsExcluded as a way of conveying what
we want to do downstream.

        if (ignoredPatterns != null) {
            for (Pattern ignoredPattern : ignoredPatterns) {
                if (ignoredPattern.matcher(value).matches()) {
                    LOG.trace("[{}] matches ignored pattern [{}]", value, ignoredPattern);
                    return IsExcluded.yes(ignoredPattern, false); // no dev warnings

The ParametersInterceptor was then modified to check whether to log, result.isLog()

if (devMode && result.isLog()) { // warn only when in devMode and required.

But this was not the preferred way, so the ParametersInterceptor was modified directly, duplicating
the checks.

- Parameter [action:myAction!save] didn't match accepted pattern [[\w+((\.\w+)|(\[\d+])|(\(\d+\))|(\['(\w|[\u4e00-\u9fa5])+'])|(\('(\w|[\u4e00-\u9fa5])+'\)))*]]!
See Accepted / Excluded patterns at
> eg the property 'action:myAction!save' should not be considered as a bean/property parameter,
as its used as part of DMI to submit the form.
> Any property which matches the DMI method invocation "^(action|method):.*" needs to be
silently ignored and not logged in devMode=true.
> DMI_AWARE_ACCEPTED_PATTERNS can also be dropped from DefaultAcceptedPatternsChecker as
the DMI action|method would never be a form property.
