Breaking change

The project namespace has changed to avoid namespace collision with Serilog.
Please note: The package id will remain unchanged.

>= 1.0.0 && < 2.0.0 EgonsoftHU.Extensions.Logging.Serilog
>= 2.0.0 EgonsoftHU.Extensions.Logging

SourceMember property

When you create a logger by calling Log.Logger.ForContext<T>() then the log events will contain a SourceContext property with the type name where the log event occurs.

This project helps you add a SourceMember property with the member name of the type where the log event occurs.

The SourceMember property name can be customized.

using EgonsoftHU.Extensions.Logging;
using Serilog;

namespace SomeCompany;

public class SomeService
    // Calling ForContext<SomeService>() will add the log event property below:
    // "SourceContext": "SomeCompany.SomeService"
    private static readonly ILogger logger = Log.Logger.ForContext<SomeService>();

    public void DoSomething()
            .Here() // Adds the log event property: "SourceMember": "DoSomething"
            .Verbose("Something has been done.");

PropertyBagEnricher : Serilog.Core.ILogEventEnricher

Each time you add a log event property (e.g. logger.ForContext("SomeProperty", 42)) a new logger instance will be created.

This enricher helps you reducing creating logger instances by adding multiple log event properties at once.

using EgonsoftHU.Extensions.Logging;
using Serilog;

IDictionary<string, object> additionalProperties = /* omitted for clarity */

var enricher =
        .CreateForSourceMember() // Equivalent to calling .Create().Here()
        .Add("Property1", 1)
        .Add("Property2", "2")

Log.Logger.ForContext(enricher).Verbose("Log message with properties.");

Exception.Data population

Exception.Data dictionary can contain additional user-defined information about the exception.

The log event properties the enricher contains can be populated into the Exception.Data dictionary using the Exception.Populate(PropertyBagEnricher) extension method.

using EgonsoftHU.Extensions.Logging;

IDictionary<string, object> additionalProperties = /* omitted for clarity */

var enricher =
        .Add("Property1", 1)
        .Add("Property2", "2")

// Exception.Data dictionary will contain all the properties above.
// The extension method returns the exception itself,
// hence you can use it directly in a `throw` statement or expression.
throw new InvalidOperationException("Invalid operation.").Populate(enricher);
