Customizing the logging utility files

The log4j2.xml file configures the logging framework that is used by the Jazz® Team Server and the other IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) applications on z/OS systems.

A log4j2.xml file is included in each of the following application configuration directories, for each of the applications that you have installed and configured:
  • @confPath@/jts/log4j2.xml
  • @confPath@/ccm/log4j2.xml
  • @confPath@/qm/log4j2.xml
  • @confPath@/rm/log4j2.xml
  • @confPath@/gc/log4j2.xml
  • @confPath@/relm/log4j2.xml
  • @confPath@/dcc/log4j2.xml

By default, the log4j2.xml files are configured to allow the Jazz Team Server and ELM applications to write messages to the log files specified in the log4j2.xml file. You can use information in these log files along with the information in the server job log files to identify a problem.

The log4j2.xml file is copied to the configuration directory specified by JAZZ_HOME and is updated automatically by the BLZCP* jobs. If you need to make more changes, edit the file in the application subdirectory under JAZZ_HOME, for example /etc/jazz703/jts/log4j2.xml.
