Kyle Hansel Can you give us some more context around this feature request? What is the use case? What business problem does this feature solve? Is there a workaround? What is the expected outcome of this feature?

Hi Jarret Lavallee

  1. This is a feature request to expand upon the existing logflags in the supported [IIS module|https://forge.puppet.com/puppetlabs/iis/readme#logflags] to include custom logflags.
  2. The use case for this feature is to allow our customers to use the IIS module to better manage the logging of IIS with custom logflags without needing to use another module from the Forge.
  3. The business problem this helps to solve is it allows us to recommend one module instead of two for customers who need to manage IIS and who use custom logging.
  4. The workaround is currently using the dsc or dsc_lite [modules|https://github.com/PowerShell/xWebAdministration#xiislogging] using the LogCustomFields resource.
  5. The expected outcome is to have the same functionality to manage custom log fields used in the dsc or dsc_lite module in the Puppet supported IIS module.
