How can I disable JIRA logging

Hi smile


I want to know how to disable a few JIRA logging services like:

 98M May  7 15:44 access_log.2015-05-07

Every day it stores around 100MB of logs.


Thank you.

This is an access log (created by Tomcat), not an application log (created by JIRA). You can't turn it off within JIRA, you need to change the valve configuration for Tomcat.

Maybe most of your log levels are set to DEBUG mode.

To disable the access log you should  click   > System. Select Troubleshooting and Support > Logging & Profiling and disable the access logging.

You may refer the documentation below for more information on this:

Hope it helps! smile



Everything in this page is already disabled :'(

To disable tomcat access logging, you need to comment out the following entry in your conf/server.xml file and restart JIRA

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" resolveHosts="false" pattern="%a %{}r %{jira.request.username}r %t "%m %U%q %H" %s %b %D "%{Referer}i" "%{User-Agent}i" "%{}r""/>
