Example appender configuration:

<appender name="STACKIFY" class="com.stackify.log.logback.StackifyLogAppender">

Note: If you are logging from a device that has the stackify-agent installed, the environment setting is optional. We will use the environment associated to your device in Stackify.

Be sure to shutdown Logback to flush this appender of any errors and shutdown the background thread:

ch.qos.logback.classic.LoggerContext loggerContext = (ch.qos.logback.classic.LoggerContext) org.slf4j.LoggerFactory.getILoggerFactory();


The Stackify appender has built-in data masking for credit cards and social security number values.

Enable Masking:

Add <maskEnabled>true</maskEnabled> inside the <appender> ... </appender> tag.

Customize Masking:

The example below has the following customizations:

  1. Credit Card value masking is disabled (<maskCreditCard>false</maskCreditCard>)
  2. IP Address masking is enabled (<maskIP>true</maskIP>).
  3. Custom masking to remove vowels using a regex (<maskCustom>[aeiou]</maskCustom>)
