$UMASK

Type: global configuration parameter

Default:

Description:

The $umask parameter allows to specify the rsyslogd processes’ umask. If not specified, the system-provided default is used. The value given must always be a 4-digit octal number, with the initial digit being zero.

If $umask is specified multiple times in the configuration file, results may be somewhat unpredictable. It is recommended to specify it only once.

Sample:

$umask 0000

This sample removes all restrictions.
