I am trying to set MDC values in a global filter/Custom Valve.


Why i am not able to see tha same getting appended in the logs.
I have included [%X{user}].But i get empty([]) in my logs.

And more over MDC.class.hashCode() in the valve/global filter and in servlet are showing different values even though Thread.currentThread().getname() is same.

I agree. Here's the link:
