Subject Tomcat accesslogs / Geoserver
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2017 13:18:07 GMT
Hi List,

We are running Geoserver 2.11.1 with Java 1.8.0_131 on Tomcat 8.0.44.

I have tried before Geoserver's own mailing list without any help, so now I try this one.
Geoserver is a map engine to publish raster and vector data in the Internet. More information
can be found here

We are not able to record the username in the Tomcat Accesslog. Geoserver has it's monitor
plugin and Auditlogs, which we have installed and logs are running nicely with recorded username.
In the Tomcat's accesslog they don't show up no matter what I try. We prefer more using Tomcat's
access logs, as we are not satisfied Geoservers format.

Here are parameters for the AccessLogValve in Tomcat 8.0\conf\server.xml file

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" directory="D:\Data\GeoServer\Tomcat_logs"
               prefix="localhost_access_log" suffix=".txt"
               pattern="%a %{X-Forwarded-FOR}i %u %t &quot;%r&quot; %s %b" />

I have tried to replace "%u" parameter with different kinds of syntaxes example "%{username}s",
"%{userName}s", "%{remoteUser}s", "%{remoteuser}s", but none of them had solved the problem.
Not even replacing "s" with "i". With {Authorization}i, I was able to record that Geoserver
is using Basic authentication as it is set in UI.

Can you help me?

With best regards
