Description of problem:
Customer requesting ability to separate OCP related logs from project containter logs.
openshift node related logs, and node system logs would be known as 'ops' logs.
logs from pods within projects, which have only the log output from containers, would be known as 'apps' logs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Customer verified, custom configuration needed but unsupported
adding comment for tracking purposes, and comments later.
additonally, requesting to have this backported to OCP 3.6, and ported forward to later versions of OCP (3.9, etc).
(nudge for visibility.)
I don't really understand the ask here. Application logs are already separated from node logs. This has been the case since the inception of the logging stack.

The objective is to send logs to an external logging stack, such as an external ELK or EFK stack, where we would like to have ops logs and app logs notably marked or seperated. Even as much as to send ops logs to, for example: a external ELK/EFK stack A and apps logs to ELK/EFK stack B.
Also, in cases where multiple OCP clusters exist, and one external ELK/EFK is to ingest all clusters' ops logs and another external ELK/EFK is to ingest all clusters apps logs.
Numerous customer cases/requests like this have come up.
With the introduction of OpenShift 4, Red Hat has delivered or roadmapped a substantial number of features based on feedback by our customers. Many of the enhancements encompass specific RFEs which have been requested, or deliver a comparable solution to a customer problem, rendering an RFE redundant.
This bz (RFE) has been identified as a feature request not yet planned or scheduled for an OpenShift release and is being closed.
If this feature is still an active request that needs to be tracked, Red Hat Support can assist in filing a request in the new JIRA RFE system, as well as provide you with updates as the RFE progress within our planning processes. Please open a new support case: https://access.redhat.com/support/cases/#/case/new

As the new Jira RFE system is not yet public, Red Hat Support can help answer your questions about your RFEs via the same support case system.
