Serilog.Sinks.EventLog

Build status NuGet Version

A Serilog sink that writes events to the Windows Event Log.

Important: version 3.0 of this sink changed the default value of manageEventSource from true to false. Applications that run with administrative privileges, and that can therefore create event sources on-the-fly, can opt in by providing manageEventSource: true as a configuration option.

Getting started

First, install the package from NuGet:

dotnet add package Serilog.Sinks.EventLog

The sink is configured by calling WriteTo.EventLog() on the LoggerConfiguration:

Log.Logger = new LoggerConfiguration()
    .WriteTo.EventLog("Sample App", manageEventSource: true)
    .CreateLogger();

Log.Information("Hello, Windows Event Log!");

Log.CloseAndFlush();

Events will appear under the Application log with the specified source name:
