Is it possible to increase the verbosity of atlassian-stash-access.log

We are finding some of the entries ambiguos as to what kind of operations are actually taking place based on atlassian-stash-access.log entries

access-log format:

ip address | protocol | request id | username | date/time | action | request details | labels | response time (ms) | session-id

## a "real" clone attempt: git clone ssh://git@stash.local:7999/ap/apple-core.git apple-core

10.10.10.206 | ssh | o659x12230x3 | jdoe | 2013-10-03 10:59:58,498 | SSH - git-upload-pack '/ap/apple-core.git' | - | clone | 25963 | 1pkur6z |

## git fetch --all

10.10.10.206 | ssh | o667x12286x2 | jdoe | 2013-10-03 11:07:06,190 | SSH - git-upload-pack '/ap/apple-core.git' | - | clone | 159 | nhtauz |

## why is THIS one labeled 'fetch'?

10.10.10.45 | ssh | o662x12273x1 | deployuser | 2013-10-03 11:02:59,934 | SSH - git-upload-pack '/svr/core.git' | - | fetch | 23817 | 1surbyu |

Yes. All Atlassian products are based off Log4J. In the app, go to "Admin" -> Support -> Logging and Profiling. Those are the dynamic things that you can flip on/off. Beyond that, other things would need to be done with the log4j stuff and would require a restart.

If you go in to $APP_HOME/atlassian-stash/WEB-INF/classes and look for "logback.xml." At the bottom you can set your log levels. Restart and check. Of course test it in test first to make sure you feel comfortable with it.

Just a few notes for people reading this answer.

Firstly Stash actually uses Logback, which is the successor of Log4j.

Secondly I would highly recommend you don't modify the logback.xml file you mentioned. Not because it's dangerous, but because on every upgrade you'll have to reapply your changes to that file. Instead if you just want to change the levels we recommend you modify the stash-config.properties file.

If you need more control you can also add different appenders in a logback include file:

Hi Zachary,

I believe you're seeing a minor glitch in how we handled the classification of fetches (just for SSH). This should be fixed in Stash 2.8 which was released just this week.

Cheers,

Charles
