import "github.com/grpc-ecosystem/go-grpc-middleware/logging/zap"

`grpc_zap` is a gRPC logging middleware backed by ZAP loggers

It accepts a user-configured `zap.Logger` that will be used for logging completed gRPC calls. The same `zap.Logger` will be used for logging completed gRPC calls, and be populated into the `context.Context` passed into gRPC handler code.

On calling `StreamServerInterceptor` or `UnaryServerInterceptor` this logging middleware will add gRPC call information to the ctx so that it will be present on subsequent use of the `ctx_zap` logger.

If a deadline is present on the gRPC request the grpc.request.deadline tag is populated when the request begins. grpc.request.deadline is a string representing the time (RFC3339) when the current call will expire.

This package also implements request and response *payload* logging, both for server-side and client-side. These will be logged as structured `jsonpb` fields for every message received/sent (both unary and streaming). For that please use `Payload*Interceptor` functions for that. Please note that the user-provided function that determines whetether to log the full request/response payload needs to be written with care, this can significantly slow down gRPC.

ZAP can also be made as a backend for gRPC library internals. For that use `ReplaceGrpcLoggerV2`.

*Server Interceptor* Below is a JSON formatted example of a log that would be logged by the server interceptor:

  "level": "info",									// string  zap log levels
  "msg": "finished unary call",						// string  log message

  "grpc.code": "OK",								// string  grpc status code
  "grpc.method": "Ping",							// string  method name
  "grpc.service": "mwitkow.testproto.TestService",  // string  full name of the called service
  "grpc.start_time": "2006-01-02T15:04:05Z07:00",   // string  RFC3339 representation of the start time
  "grpc.request.deadline": "2006-01-02T15:04:05Z07:00",   // string  RFC3339 deadline of the current request if supplied
  "grpc.request.value": "something",				// string  value on the request
  "grpc.time_ms": 1.345,							// float32 run time of the call in ms

  "peer.address": {
    "IP": "",								// string  IP address of calling party
    "Port": 60216,									// int     port call is coming in on
    "Zone": ""										// string  peer zone for caller
  "span.kind": "server",							// string  client | server
  "system": "grpc"									// string

  "custom_field": "custom_value",					// string  user defined field
  "custom_tags.int": 1337,							// int     user defined tag on the ctx
  "custom_tags.string": "something",				// string  user defined tag on the ctx

*Payload Interceptor* Below is a JSON formatted example of a log that would be logged by the payload interceptor:

  "level": "info",													// string zap log levels
  "msg": "client request payload logged as grpc.request.content",   // string log message

  "grpc.request.content": {											// object content of RPC request
    "msg" : {														// object ZAP specific inner object
	  "value": "something",											// string defined by caller
      "sleepTimeMs": 9999											// int    defined by caller
  "grpc.method": "Ping",											// string method being called
  "grpc.service": "mwitkow.testproto.TestService",					// string service being called

  "span.kind": "client",											// string client | server
  "system": "grpc"													// string

Note - due to implementation ZAP differs from Logrus in the "grpc.request.content" object by having an inner "msg" object.

Please see examples and tests for examples of use.

Initialization shows a relatively complex initialization sequence.


// Shared options for the logger, with a custom gRPC code to log level function.
opts := []grpc_zap.Option{
// Make sure that log statements internal to gRPC library are logged using the zapLogger as well.
// Create a server, make sure we put the grpc_ctxtags context before everything else.
_ = grpc.NewServer(
        grpc_zap.UnaryServerInterceptor(zapLogger, opts...),
        grpc_zap.StreamServerInterceptor(zapLogger, opts...),


opts := []grpc_zap.Option{
    grpc_zap.WithDecider(func(fullMethodName string, err error) bool {
        // will not log gRPC calls if it was a call to healthcheck and no error was raised
        if err == nil && fullMethodName == "foo.bar.healthcheck" {
            return false

        // by default everything will be logged
        return true

_ = []grpc.ServerOption{
        grpc_zap.StreamServerInterceptor(zap.NewNop(), opts...)),
        grpc_zap.UnaryServerInterceptor(zap.NewNop(), opts...)),

Initialization shows an initialization sequence with the duration field generation overridden.


opts := []grpc_zap.Option{
    grpc_zap.WithDurationField(func(duration time.Duration) zapcore.Field {
        return zap.Int64("grpc.time_ns", duration.Nanoseconds())

_ = grpc.NewServer(
        grpc_zap.UnaryServerInterceptor(zapLogger, opts...),
        grpc_zap.StreamServerInterceptor(zapLogger, opts...),
