Spring Boot: How to disable console logging using properties

To disable console logging, add the following properties to application.properties file:

# Empty this property to disable console logging
logging.pattern.console=

# Specify the path to the main log file so you will still have your logs somewhere
logging.file=/path/to/folder/application.log

If you want to enable console logging in your IDE, here are two ways to re-enable it:

  • Add an alias to the log file /path/to/folder/application.log in your Run Configuration
  • Override the property “logging.pattern.console” in your Run Configuration

Tested with Spring Boot 2.1.4
