by Erik Dahl

Supercharge your log entries for your ASP.NET Core applications using Serilog Enrichers. We'll cover standard enrichers and custom enrichers for HttpContext information. All without cluttering application code!

What you'll learn

Serilog is a powerful logging framework for .NET applications, but many log entries still miss critically important pieces of information needed to fully analyze or troubleshoot problems. In this course, Serilog Enrichers: Getting Common Information into Log Entries, you will learn foundational knowledge of leveraging Serilog enrichers for ASP.Net Core web projects. First, you will learn standard enrichers for things like the machine name and assembly information. Next, you will discover custom enrichment that includes information from the HttpContext to support information regarding the query string and logged-in users - both in API and MVC websites.

When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Serilog enrichers needed to supercharge your own ASP.NET Core applications with awesomely consistent log entries.
