Logging Message IDs

Registered by Doug Hellmann on 2017-04-20

Many commercial (closed-source) enterprise applications,
and even some open source projects, include unique identifiers
for every user and log message. The IDs are used as reference
points in documentation and bug reports, either instead of or in
addition to the text of the log message. Using an ID instead of the
text of the message means that knowledge bases continue to be
useful if the message text changes slightly over time. Message IDs
also mean that online searches can be language independent, to
some degree, although translating the results of a search may still
require someone to be able to read English if there are no results
in their primary language.
