Some or all of the below information will be requested if it isn’t supplied; for fastest response please provide as much as you can :heart:

Nextcloud version (eg, 12.0.2): 14.0.3
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): RHEL 7.5
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25):
PHP version (eg, 7.1): 7.2.11

The issue you are facing:
When loglevel is set to 1 in config.php for info, no info level messages are logged. Debug level works, as does warn level, but nothing for info. When set to debug level, there were still no info level messages logged to the nextcloud.log file. We enabled the Auditing / Logging app, which is sending file related messages to the audit.log file correctly, but with user ID instead of user name.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Installed nextcloud apache version with nginx and mariadb containers, set up with docker-compose file.
  2. Integrated successfully with Active Directory for authentication.
  3. Uploaded / deleted files.
