how turn off debug log messages in spring boot

spring boot turn off hibernate logging
spring boot disable logging for package
spring boot test logging
spring boot logback
log4j disable console logging
spring boot not logging to console
dynamic log file name spring boot
spring boot batch logging

I read in spring boot docs (https://docs.spring.io/spring-boot/docs/current/reference/html/boot-features-logging.html)

you can also specify debug=true in your application.properties"

So I guess I can turn off the debug logs by adding debug=false in application.properties. I did it but unfortunately it didn't work. Then I read in same doc

The logging system is initialized early in the application lifecycle and as such logging properties will not be found in property files loaded via @PropertySource annotations"

and

"Since logging is initialized before the ApplicationContext is created, it isn’t possible to control logging from @PropertySources in Spring @Configuration files"

and

"When possible we recommend that you use the -spring variants for your logging configuration" so I added a file named log4j-spring.properties in src/main/resources.

In such file I added debug=false (only this line and nothing else) but I am still seeing all "current date" [main] DEBUG ... messages. So, my question is how can I turn off the debug messages in my Spring Boot Application as I will deploy to the application to production. Is there a recommend way to reach this via maven?

***** Added in Feb 12th

The two main methods: 1)By using AnnotationConfigApplicationContext:

public class DemoAppNoBoot {
       public static void main(String[] args) {
              AnnotationConfigApplicationContext context = new AnnotationConfigApplicationContext(
                           BatchConfiguration.class);
              JobLauncher jobLauncher = (JobLauncher) context.getBean("jobLauncher");
              Job job = (Job) context.getBean("job");
               try {
                     JobExecution execution = jobLauncher.run(job, new JobParameters());
              } catch (Exception e) {
                     e.printStackTrace();
              }
       }
}

Maven Dependencies (the relevant ones for my doubt):

logback-classic-1.1.3.jar
logback-core-1.1.3.jar
slf4j-api-1.7.13.jar
log4j-over-slf4j-1.7.13.jar

In application.properties you can add ‘logging.level.*=LEVEL’ where ‘LEVEL’ is one of TRACE, DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL, OFF. * is responsible for package/class.

For example

logging.level.root=WARN
logging.level.org.springframework.web=DEBUG
logging.level.org.hibernate=ERROR

This means that root logger has WARN level. org.springframework.web is on DEBUG level, but all hibernates files are logged only ERROR.

In your case you must set logging.level.root on one of level from INFO, WARN, ERROR,FATAL or OFF to turn off all logging.

See https://docs.spring.io/spring-boot/docs/current/reference/html/boot-features-logging.html#boot-features-custom-log-levels

While using Spring Rest Docs with SpringMockMVC with testLogging.showStandardStreams set to true in Gradle, Spring cluttered the console with info & debug logs. I had to use Mkyong's solution where in a logback-test.xml in src/test/resources needs to be created on top of the chosen solution here. Use log-level OFF, ERROR, WARN, DEBUG

logback-test.xml

How to Disable Console Logging in Spring Boot, Learn how to configure a Spring Boot application so that it does not log to the Usually, console logs give us the opportunity to debug our system in an easy and intuitive way. Note: what is actually disabling the console output here is the fact that we aren't SSS} [%t] %-5level %logger{36} - %msg%n" />. If our project uses Spring Boot starters, then the spring-boot-starter-logging dependency will be included as well. This particular starter configures Logback as the default framework and initially logs only to the console by default. This configuration can be customized by adding a logback-spring.xml file to our resources.


in addition to a log4j.properties or log4j.xml file you will need all three of these entries in your maven pom.xml... adding the log4j-acl artifact instantly fixed the problem for me. it routes apache-commons-logging entries from commons logging over to log4j

I'm not sure how you would go about this in grunt but the bridge is what you need.
