      Description

      After upgrading log4j2 from 2.5 to 2.6 I get the following exception:

      Exception in thread "main" org.apache.logging.log4j.core.config.ConfigurationException: No name attribute provided for Logger org

      The parameter "key" has the value "org" and the parameter properties has the value

      {activiti.engine.impl.level=info, activiti.engine.impl.name=org.activiti.engine.impl}

      The log4j2.properties in use:

      # Root logger option
      rootLogger.level = info
      rootLogger.appenderRefs = stdout
      rootLogger.appenderRef.stdout.ref = STDOUT
      
      # Redirect log messages to console
      appenders = stdout
      appender.stdout.type = Console
      appender.stdout.name = STDOUT
      appender.stdout.layout.type = PatternLayout
      appender.stdout.layout.pattern = %d %-5p [%t] %c - %m%n
      

      Sadly I have not been able to reproduce the issue in a simple standalone application.
