The Integrator's Guide does not currently contain any information regarding customisation of the SimpleFormatter or the ThreadIdLogFormatter and it would be useful for customers attempting to make customisations for this information to be included.

n.b. Some information has already been covered here - https://ea.forgerock.com/docs/idm/release-notes/index.html#threadid-formatting - and could be expanded on within the Integrator's Guide.

There is some information within the Knowledge Base (https://backstage.forgerock.com/knowledge/kb/article/a96484683) which covers how to add Thread IDs to the SimpleFormatter itself which is similar to the method used by the ThreadIdLogFormatter (although not identical) which may be useful to include.

This might actually be a duplicate of OPENIDM-11754 - depending on what is covered in that JIRA.

Updated the logging chapter here, PR is here. We now list each of the available formatters, and link to the official java docs for further refinements (since both XMLFormatter and SimpleFormatter are actually part of Java, not FR specific).
