Configuring Access to the Log File

By default, log files can be accessed only by the user who configures the tracing operation. You can allow all users to read the log file and you can explicitly set the default behavior of the log file.

To specify that all users can read the log file:

  • Configure the log file to be world-readable.
    [edit system processes general-authentication-service traceoptions]user@host# set file aap_logfile_1 world-readable

To explicitly set the default behavior, in which the log file can only be read by the user who configured tracing:

  • Configure the log file to be no-world-readable.
    [edit system processes general-authentication-service traceoptions]user@host# set file aap_logfile_1 no-world-readable
