How to externalise logger configuration?


I have successfully deployed flowable apps in tomcat 7.0.103 and also on tomcat 8.5.54.
I want the logs of all flowable apps in separate log files instead of on the tomcat console.
How can I achieve this?

I have read the topic how-to-externalize-properties-files for externalzing application properties. However this is not working on either tomcat versions.



The Flowable UI applications are Spring Boot applications, so regular Spring Boot logging configuration applies. See for example.

I’ve tried doing it. For some reason, looger congiruation that I define in file is not even getting read it seems. Should I use some other file? Tis file is being used successfuly for all the other properties i.e. port and db name by spring boot. Where should the logging properties go?
