Problem

To debug EC2 agent issues we sometimes need to extra debug classes to its normal log or change the level of logging to some existing classes

Resolution

Perform any needed change in the log4j of the Bamboo server and those changes will be replicated in the EC2 agent

  1. Edit the file 
    1. For Bamboo versions prior 9: <Bamboo_Install>/atlassian-bamboo/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties adding the needed classes or changing the log level from the existing ones

    2. For Bamboo version 9 and above: <Bamboo_Install>/atlassian-bamboo/WEB-INF/classes/log4j2.properties adding the needed classes or changing the log level from the existing ones

  2. Restart the server
  3. Restart the EC2 agents


(warning) The EC2 log4j.properties copy can be found at <EC2_Agent_Home>/classpath/bamboo-additional-config.jar
