Debug applications more efficiently by grouping loggers

Updated on May 3, 2021

You can now create log categories and associate them with loggers for more effective debugging. When you group loggers into log categories, you do not have to remember the names of individual loggers that correspond with specific features.

Pega provides a set of default log categories; however, to meet your specific business needs, you can create your own log categories. You can update your log categories by changing the log level and adding or removing the loggers. The changes that you make affect all nodes in the cluster and they persist until you change them, so that you do not have to update each logger individually.

The following figure illustrates the Log categories landing page in Admin Studio.

As a best practice, group loggers that correspond with similar features. For example, group loggers that correspond with agents into one category.

For more information, see Log levels for log categories.
