Migrate Log Table ( You don't have to migrate if your database is mongodb.)

Migrate Log Table migration:

php artisan migrate

Configure your application logging behavior

The php artisan vendor:publish will publish Log table migration into migrations folder, geoip.php and xlog.php in config folder of you laravel installation.

Logging Environments

In xlog.php you may specify your igonore_environments as an array, In these environment it will not log any request or response e.g.

'ignore_environments' => ['local', 'test'],

Set Database Type

In xlog.php you may specify your db_type as string. Since laravel supported databases (mysql, sqlite, pgsql) behaves differently than laravel not supported databases, For that purpose I'm using a ProxyModel Which switch the Eloquent Mode based on database type. E.g. For any laravel supported database you can leave it blank, For mongodb you can set it to 'mongo'.

'db_type' => 'mongodb'

Supported database types are (sqlite, mysql, pgsql, mongodb).

DB Connection

In xlog.php you may specify your connection as string. This connection will be used to save the logs. (By default it uses application connection)

'connection' => env('DB_CONNECTION')

Supported database types are (sqlite, mysql, pgsql, mongodb).

DB Table

In xlog.php you may specify the table_name for you logs.

'table' => 'logs'

Log Display Routes

In xlog.php you may specify your routes. For now there are only three routes.

  1. Index: where you can see the logs in tabular format using laravel pagination.
  2. Detail: Where you can see the logs detail.
  3. Delete: You can delete a log.

( You may specify you own routes and controllers in case you want to. All you have to do is Call the RummyKhan\XLog\Models\Log Model to get the logs.)

'routes' => [
    'index'  => [ 'route' => '/admin/logs',      'action' => 'XLogController@index'],        // HTTP Method is GET
    'detail' => [ 'route' => '/admin/logs/{id}', 'action' => 'XLogController@detail'],       // HTTP Method is GET
    'delete' => [ 'route' => '/admin/logs/{id}', 'action' => 'XLogController@delete']        // HTTP Method is DELETE

When changing routes, don't change the wildcard {id} from the routes.

Log Middleware

In xlog.php you can specify the middleware for you log routes. By default middleware is set to auth.

'middleware' => ['auth']
