You have to add logging dependencies:

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.logging.log4j</groupId>
            <artifactId>log4j-api</artifactId>
            <version>2.7</version>
            <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.logging.log4j</groupId>
            <artifactId>log4j-core</artifactId>
            <version>2.7</version>
            <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>

With ES 5 you have to explicitly include Log4J 2 as dependency in your pom.

Managed to get Logging to work with sbt Scala over slf4j with these deps:

  "org.slf4j" % "slf4j-simple" % "1.7.21",
  "org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-api" % "2.6.2",
  "org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-to-slf4j" % "2.6.2",

Note log4j 2.7 does not seem to work with ElasticSearch 5.0.0


(Venkatesh) #5

Yes. I faced the same issue with Log4j 2.7.

I followed your steps and compiled successfully.

Same issue ,i use slf4j, resovled by add

org.apache.logging.log4j
log4j-to-slf4j
2.6.2


org.apache.logging.log4j
log4j-api


org.apache.logging.log4j
log4j-core

please refer https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.0/log4j-slf4j-impl/index.html

None of the combinations above worked for me. I have tried up to this version of artifacts:

"org.elasticsearch" % "elasticsearch" % "5.2.1", // "1.7.1",
"org.elasticsearch.client" % "transport" % "5.2.1", // "1.7.1",
//"org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-to-slf4j" % "2.8",
"org.slf4j" % "slf4j-simple" % "1.7.24",
"org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-api" % "2.8.1",
"org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-core" % "2.8.1",

Any suggestions?

For the win:

"org.elasticsearch" % "elasticsearch" % "5.2.1", // "1.7.1",
//"org.elasticsearch.client" % "transport" % "5.2.1", // "1.7.1",
"org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-to-slf4j" % "2.8",
//"org.slf4j" % "slf4j-simple" % "1.7.24",
"org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-api" % "2.8.1",
"org.apache.logging.log4j" % "log4j-core" % "2.8.1",

The maven dependencies in this thread helped:
