Ability set the message severity loging level for Map Policy

With the MAP Policy, optional attributes which are mapped, but not present, produce error in the data power log such as:
[apiconnect][error] mpgw(webapi): trans(49903600)[request]
[] gtid(e743563d59d74e1602f977f0): Map: API=example_api, policy=200 OK : set action output.ExampleOptionalField: input.
ExampleOptionalField is undefined and has no default configured.

Currently there is no way to set the severity of the logging to something else than error.

One would need to have a way to override the default severity and set it to what fits better its needs so that it does not overload the logging and hide more important error messages.

    Closing this as the capability exists in the product.

    This capability has existed for some time. Using the Map UI, click on the settings gear between the input and outputs and you'll see an option "Severity level for Input Data Log Messages". By default, this option has a value of "Error" which is was the behavior before the option was added. However you can also specify this as "Warn" or "Info". Using the warn setting, the messages are generated but the DataPower logging target will decide if it will be logged based upon the subscription of the apiconnect log category. Using the info setting, these messages are not generated at all unless a system variable, set at the direction of IBM support, is present, and of course the logging target subscription would need to be specified at the info level for the apiconnect log category. From a yaml source view, this would look like
