adding to the link of Anıl here is some more general information about where to find the logs for Confluence
Working with Confluence logs
Please let us know if it worked out and you were able to find the logs.
Unfortunately It did not resolve by generating User_Acceess_Logs file in the Confluence Logs folder , By the way we are running Confluence version : 7.5.1 ,
Access logging using Tomcat Valve is enabled by default from Confluence 7.11. These logs are not part of the application log, and can be found at
Even though default suppose to generate this log file separately but not.,
I have tried following suggested , and reboot the servers and waited for 24 hrs , still no user_access_logs.
To enable user access logging:
Uncomment this line in
Enable the filter in
confluence/WEB-INF/web.xml by removing the comments around these lines (or adding if they are not included):
<filter-mapping> <filter-name>AccessLogFilter</filter-name> <url-pattern>/display/*</url-pattern> </filter-mapping> <filter-mapping> <filter-name>AccessLogFilter</filter-name> <url-pattern>*.action</url-pattern> </filter-mapping>
I'd also say that from the description a separate log should be created, however in the info box it reads:
"By default, this logging information is stored in the
atlassian-confluence.log file in the Confluence Home directory. "
Did you check if the user access is logged to atlassian-confluence.log although not intended?
I found the
atlassian-confluence.log in following location :Atlassian\Application Data\Confluence\logs"
Actually it updated today.
Has information such as LDAP sync number of users /groups sync with AD etc,
But we are interest in following detailed information about user specific access logs,
specifically Username , ( or Display Name ) , Log suppose to capture all action specific to that user once logged ( such as read page / write / modify / delete content /adding new contents , etc )
Would you please email me , then we can go more detailed into the logs file that is currently generated ,
my email is: email@example.com
Support via email is something Atlassian Support offers - assuming you have a valid maintenance (license).
To summarize what we have so far:
in case the settings are made according to documentation access log should, indeed, show up in the file system.
If this does not work you would have to check if all settings are applied correctly.
A different approach could be to check the logs of any reverse proxy which might be in use in your setup (Apache or nginx are common ones, just to name them).
Probably you would also achieve a better result by a newer version of Confluence, however, acconrding to documentation you followed it should also work with Confluence version 7.5.
In case you want to double check you could report back here or refer to Atlassian support (https://support.atlassian.com/contact/)
