Prerequisite: Know how to use the Janssen CLI in interactive mode

Using Janssen CLI, you can easily update the logging configuration. Just go with option 11 from Main Menu, It will display two options.

Configuration – Logging
-----------------------
1 Returns Jans Authorization Server logging settings
2 Updates Jans Authorization Server logging settings

The first option returns the current logging configuration.
