    Description

      We are currently implementing an own JSON layout using the pattern layout including the %enc  conversion pattern. Unfortunately, it is not possible to get the exceptionName using the pattern layouts like in the JSON appender.

      Example exception:

      de.test.test.UnknownIdentifierException: CronJob with code test not found
      at de.test.test.service.Services.validateSingleResultWithType(Services.java:88)
      

      In the JSON Layout with includeStacktrace=true, there will be a new field thrown_name which includes only the exception name: 

      de.test.test.UnknownIdentifierException

       
      This would be helpful in the pattern layout, too. With this field a customer can filter for specific exceptions like for example Nullpointers.
      A possible implementation could be added to the exception pattern

      %ex{short.exceptionName}
