Logging Configuration Reference (MonologBundle)

The MonologBundle integrates the Monolog logging library in Symfony applications. All these options are configured under the monolog key in your application configuration.

# displays the default config values defined by Symfony
$ php bin/console config:dump-reference monolog

# displays the actual config values used by your application
$ php bin/console debug:config monolog


When using XML, you must use the http://symfony.com/schema/dic/monolog namespace and the related XSD schema is available at: https://symfony.com/schema/dic/monolog/monolog-1.0.xsd


For a full list of handler types and related configuration options, see Monolog Configuration.


When the profiler is enabled, a handler is added to store the logs' messages in the profiler. The profiler uses the name "debug" so it is reserved and cannot be used in the configuration.
