Adding Logs for Tokens

Entries in the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/security/identity_log_tokens.properties file can determine whether tokens are added to system logs or not. By default, these are enabled in the file. The following are the entries in this file that represent different types of tokens. The tokens can be disabled from appearing in the logs by setting each token to false .

    UserClaims=true
    UserIdToken=true
    XACML_Request=true
    XACML_Response=true
    NTLM_Token=true
    SAML_Assertion=true
    SAML_Request=true

In addition to this, you need to ensure that the logs in the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/log4j2.properties file are enabled as well. To do this, please follow the following instructions.

Change log level from INFO to DEBUG in org.wso2.carbon.identity logger as follows.

logger.org-wso2-carbon-identity.name=org.wso2.carbon.identity
logger.org-wso2-carbon-identity.level=DEBUG

In order to log the tokens defined in the identity_log_tokens.properties file, you need to add the Read_Log_Token_Properties system property. This can be done either by starting WSO2 Identity Server with the system property or by adding the parameter to JAVA_OPTS as an environment variable.

Tip

JAVA_OPTS are optional runtime options that can be set.

To start the server and pass the parameter, navigate to the <IS_HOME>/bin folder in the command line and run the following command.

sh wso2server.sh -DRead_Log_Token_Properties=true

To add the parameter to the environment variable, use the following command and then start the server.

export JAVA_OPTS=-DRead_Log_Token_Properties=true
