userid_to_log

Controls how logging of IP addresses is performed.

Key: userid_to_log
Type: RequestId allowed values: ip, ip_hash or nothing
Can be set in: collection.cfg

Description

Controls how the search interface will log search request IP addresses via three settings:

ip

log request IP addresses as normal

ip_hash

log a unique one-way hash of each incoming request IP address

nothing

do not log request IP addresses

Default Value

userid_to_log=ip

Examples

To log a unique one-way hash of each request IP address:

userid_to_log=ip_hash

⚠ Caveats

  • Some of the query reports rely on the IP addresses to extract information about users (especially the "Top Searchers" and "Top Searchers by Country" reports). If the IP address is not logged or is logged as a hash, these reports will display "Unknown".
