Configure Log4j for Bloomreach Cloud

This documentation applies to Bloomreach Cloud 2 only



Configure Log4j in your Bloomreach Experience Manager project for deployment in Bloomreach Cloud.


Bloomreach Cloud supports Log4j version 1.x for Bloomreach Experience Manager 11 and Log4j version 2.x for Bloomreach Experience Manager 12 and later. These logs are exposed at Humio. Account details are provided by Bloomreach.

The Bloomreach Cloud platform captures the following output:

  • audit.log * 
  • cms.log  
  • site.log
  • catalina std out

* Note: In Log4j config  please use hippo-audit.log filename.  BRC Team is working on a fix to support also audit.log filename.

Log4j Configuration

Bloomreach Experience Manager projects created using a recent Bloomreach Experience Manager Maven archetype already have Log4j configured out-of-the-box.

If your project was created using an older version of the archetype and subsequently upgraded, or if your project was not created using the archetype at all, make sure your Log4j configuration looks similar to:

    <!-- cms.log -->
    <RollingFile name="cms" fileName="${sys:catalina.base}/logs/cms.log"
      <LookupFilter key="jndi:logging/contextName" value="cms" onMatch="ACCEPT"/>
      <PatternLayout pattern="%d{dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm:ss} %-5p [%C.%M():%L] %m%n"/>
