How do we enable JIRA access logging with a property

On this document, it shows how to enable http access logging via gui but the setting is lost after a server restart. 

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/user-access-logging-121565.html

How can this setting be enabled via a property or file change? We are managing our JIRA configs with puppet and need this setting to be programmatically managed. 

Note: I see you can enable tomcat access logs in the server.xml but I'm asking specifically about these JIRA http access logs.

Looks like we I found the answer.

JIRA_INST/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties contains the following values and you would have to change OFF to ALL for the ones you want.

#####################################################
# Access logs
#####################################################
log4j.logger.com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.accesslog.AccessLogFilter = OFF, httpaccesslog
log4j.additivity.com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.accesslog.AccessLogFilter = false
log4j.logger.com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.accesslog.AccessLogFilterIncludeImages = OFF, httpaccesslog
log4j.additivity.com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.accesslog.AccessLogFilterIncludeImages = false
log4j.logger.com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.accesslog.AccessLogFilterDump = OFF, httpdumplog
log4j.additivity.com.atlassian.jira.web.filters.accesslog.AccessLogFilterDump = false
