Django request ElasticSearch logging

Project description


Django request ElasticSearch logging

Django support

To log every django request insert LoggingMiddleware before AuthenticationMiddleware:



This will insert request and response info to Elastic Search index called logs-{week_start}-{week_end} in following format:

    "timestamp": "2018-12-09 02:22:22",
    "type": "default",
    "request": {
      "url": "",
      "data": {"param1": "value1"},
      "headers": {}
    "response": {
      "status": 200,
      "data": {"args": {}, "data": "", "files": {}, "form": {"param1": "value1"}, "headers": {"Accept": "*/*", "Accept-Encoding": "gzip, deflate", "Connection": "close", "Content-Length": "13", "Content-Type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded", "Host": "", "User-Agent": "python-requests/2.19.1"}, "json": null, "origin": "", "url": ""}
    "app": "default",
    "request_id": "2180930f-859b-4aef-8770-17107fff1170"

Requests support

To log requests request and response data use drel.requests.log function:

>>> from drel.requests import post, log
>>> request, response = post("", {"param1": "value1"})
>>> log(request, response)


To change settings override config module values:

from drel import config

config.APPLICATION = "django_app"

Sample Django configuration

from django.http import HttpRequest
from drel.core import config
from drel.django import mail_admins_on_es_exception

def ignore_logging_handler(request: HttpRequest) -> bool:
    return any([
        request.path == "/api/register_device/",
        request.method != "POST",

config.ELASTIC_SEARCH_EXCEPTION_HANDLER = mail_admins_on_es_exception
config.INDEX_NAME_GETTER = lambda: "django_app_2019-01-01"
config.APPLICATION = "django_app"
config.IGNORE_LOGGING_HANDLER = ignore_logging_handler

This configuration:

  • mail admins on Elastic Search index exception
  • ignore logging non-POST and /api/register_device/ requests
  • insert docs to django_app_2019-01-01 index
  • application field = django_app
