Introduction

Ubisecure CustomerID has two log files at the application level. The log files are:

  • customerid_audit.log – This log file contains the audit log.
  • customerid_diag.log – This log file contains additional technical information, such as errors.

These log files are by default written to the following location inside the WildFly installation: standalone/log/ . If you use the default configuration both log files will be renamed every day there is activity in the system. The date will be added to the end of the log file names in the following format: yyyy-mm-dd . You must manually purge the log files. You can also set up your own logging configuration and for example collect all logs to a separate logging server. One log entry is always on one line except when it includes an exception stack trace. The separator character between fields is ";". Audit logs don't include exception information.

Depending on configuration, additional log files are generated by the application server inside the WildFly installation: standalone/log/ .  These logs include

  • server.log
  • service.log
  • wildfly-stderr.log
  • wildfly-stdout.log
  • access.log (disabled by default)

After the current day, the date will be added to the end of the log file names in the following format: yyyy-mm-dd .  You must manually purge the log files. You can also set up your own logging configuration and for example collect all logs to a separate logging server.

CustomerID logging configuration instructions can be found from Logging configuration - CustomerID.

Audit Logging

Audit log is a chronological sequence of audit records. The audit records contain data pertaining to and resulting from activities such as transactions or communications by individual people, systems, accounts or other entities. Practically speaking, an audit log shows who has accessed a computer system and what operations he or she has performed during a given period of time.

Audit logging can be used in conjunction with different liability issues. In case of dispute, audit records can be used to reconstruct and examine sequences of events. In this way, they work as pieces of evidence for the incidents in question.
Ubisecure CustomerID collects an audit on user actions in the system.

Default Audit Log Format

  • Logger format:
    • timestamp (23 characters) (based on ISO8061 standard)
      • Format: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,SSS
    • application format (log message from application)


  • Application format:
    • event (30 characters)
      • Is a very short title of the operation that is being performed.
    • effect (11 characters)
      • Possible values: IN_PROGRESS, SUCCESS, FAIL.
    • executor (36 characters)
      • In most cases contains the database ID (=User ID) of the executor of the operation. It is in UUID format.
      • Secondarily may also contain some other identification information that is no longer than 36 characters.
    • target (36 characters)
      • In most cases contains the database ID (usually User ID) of the target of the operation. It is in UUID format.
      • Secondarily may also contain some other identification information that is no longer than 36 characters.
    • log message text
      • Can contain any variable length information needed to clarify the logging situation.
    • ipaddress
      • IP address where the operation originates from.


Diagnostic Logging

Diagnostic log is a chronological sequence of system actions. The diagnostic records contain data used to debug the system in case of errors or to verify the system actions.


Default Diagnostic Log Format

  • Logger format:
    • timestamp (23 characters) (based on ISO8061 standard)
      • Format: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,SSS
    • log level (5 characters)
      • Possible values: DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR.
    • node
      • Node name of the node on which the application runs.
    • thread
      • Thread name of the thread that is currently executing when the log is written.
    • category
      • This is the logging category. You can limit logging based on the category.
    • application format (log message from application)
    • exception stack trace


  • Application format:
    • event (30 characters)
      • Is a very short title of the operation that is being performed.
    • effect (11 characters)
      • Possible values: IN_PROGRESS, SUCCESS, FAIL.
    • executor (36 characters)
      • In most cases contains the database ID (usually User ID) of the executor of the operation. It is in UUID format.
      • Secondarily may also contain some other identification information that is no longer than 36 characters.
    • target (36 characters)
      • In most cases contains the database ID (usually User ID) of the target of the operation. It is in UUID format.
      • Secondarily may also contain some other identification information that is no longer than 36 characters.
    • log message text
      • Can contain any variable length information needed to clarify the logging situation.
    • ipaddress
      • IP address where the operation originates from.
    • sessionid

Access Logs

The CustomerID Application Server, Wildfly, can record an Access Log of all HTTP traffic received.

Recorded data include source IP, time, date, timezone, HTTP request with all query string parameters, HTTP status code returned and User Agent (browser used).

This log is disabled by default. To enable the access log, edit WildFly standalone/configuration/standalone.xml and add the element access-log to the host element as shown below.

A file access_log.log will then the written to the standalone\log directory in the format specified.

CustomerID Access Log Configuration
<host name="default-host" alias="localhost, www.example.com, localhost">
                    <location name="/" handler="welcome-content"/>
                    <filter-ref name="server-header"/>
                    <filter-ref name="x-powered-by-header"/>
                    <access-log pattern="%h %l %u [%t] &quot;%r&quot; %s %b &quot;%{i,Referer}&quot; &quot;%{i,User-Agent}&quot;"/>
</host>

If a reverse proxy is used and the proxy passes the original source IP as X-Forwarded-For header, following configuration can be used:

CustomerID Access Log Configuration with reverse proxy
<host name="default-host" alias="localhost, www.example.com, localhost">
                    <location name="/" handler="welcome-content"/>
                    <filter-ref name="server-header"/>
                    <filter-ref name="x-powered-by-header"/>
                    <access-log pattern="%{i,X-Forwarded-For} %l %u [%t] &quot;%r&quot; %s %b &quot;%{i,Referer}&quot; &quot;%{i,User-Agent}&quot;"/>
</host>

After making this change, the WildFly application server must be restarted.

Windows

Restarting WildFly Application Server on Windows
net stop wildfly
net start wildfly

Linux

Restarting WildFly Application Server on Linux
systemctl restart wildfly.service
