Component : Access Logging.


Add the "x-bluecoat-placeholder" field name under the access logging format to have the "-" (hyphen) as the value.

Go to Configuration > Access Logging > Formats.

Then Edit/View the format that you would like to have the "-" (hyphen) as the value and add the the "x-bluecoat-placeholder" field name.
