The logBox structure is based on the LogBox declaration DSL, see the LogBox Documentation for much more information.

//LogBox DSL
logBox = {
    // The configuration file without fileextension to use for operation, instead of using this structure
    configFile = "config/LogBox", 
    // Appenders
    appenders = {
        appenderName = {
                name  = value,
                prop2 = value 2
    // Root Logger
    root = {levelMin="FATAL", levelMax="DEBUG", appenders="*"},
    // Granualr Categories
    categories = {
        "coldbox.system" = { levelMin="FATAL", levelMax="INFO", appenders="*"},
        "model.security" = { levelMax="DEBUG", appenders="console"}
    // Implicit categories
    debug  = ["coldbox.system.interceptors"],
    info   = ["model.class", "model2.class2"],
    warn   = ["model.class", "model2.class2"],
    error  = ["model.class", "model2.class2"],
    fatal  = ["model.class", "model2.class2"],
    off    = ["model.class", "model2.class2"]

Info : If you do not define a logBox DSL structure, the framework will look for the default configuration file config/LogBox.cfc. If it does not find it, then it will use the framework's default logging settings.


You can use a configuration CFC instead of inline configuration by using this setting. The default value is config/LogBox.cfc, so by convention you can just use that location. If no values are defined or no config file exists, the default configuration file is coldbox/system/web/config/LogBox.cfc.
