Sending Yii2 application logs to different targets asynchronously or synchronously.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require --prefer-dist apollo11/yii2-logger "~1.0"

or add

"apollo11/yii2-logger": "~1.0"

to the require section of your composer.json file.

The package offers:

  1. Abstract Target class with support of sending messages asynchronously. It also has possibility to hide sensitive information when sending $_POST or other $GLOBALS data to target.
  2. Slack target: Sending messages to slack channel

Basic Usage

The package supports three target classes: EmailTarget, SlackTarget, DbTarget.

All target classes have support for sending messages asynchronously and hide passwords(or other sensitive data) provided by user. If you set async to true than you must provide the consoleAppPath.

EmailTarget and DbTarget work pretty much in the simillar way as it is described in Yii Documentation.

Add the following code to your project configuration file under components -> log -> targets

'class' => <Target class>,
// If async is set to true you have to provide consoleAppPath
'async' => true,
'consoleAppPath' => Yii::getAlias('@console/yii'),
// If you would like to use different php binary, when sending messages asynchronously you can set it from here
// 'phpExecPath' => 'php',
// Provide here keys which will be hidden before sending messages. It is case insensitive
'excludeKeys' => [
    '*PASSWORD*', // Will hide all keys from $GLOBALS objects which contains "password".
    '*PASSWORD', // Will hide all keys from $GLOBALS objects which ends with "password".
    'PASSWORD*', // Will hide all keys from $GLOBALS objects which starts with "password".


'class' => apollo11\logger\SlackTarget::class,
'except' => ['yii\web\HttpException:*', 'yii\web\HeadersAlreadySentException'],
'webhookUrl' => <Slack channel webhook url>,
'icon_url' => '<Slack sender icon url>',
'icon_emoji' => '<Slack sender icon emoji>', // If both, icon_url and icon_emoji is provided system will use icon_emoji
'levels' => ['error', 'warning'],
'title_link' => '<Url which will be opened when clicking on title of the slack message>',
'async' => true,
'consoleAppPath' => Yii::getAlias('@console/yii'),
'username' => '<Username which will be used as sender on slack channer>',
'excludeKeys' => [],


If you set async property to true, you must add the following code into your console application controllerMap

'async' => [
    'class' => \apollo11\logger\AsyncController::class,
