[logback-user] Configuration in code only

I am a part of an infrastructure team in my company. I have a requirement
where I need to support logback configured from code only (infrastructure
code). I cannot have users define a logback config file in their respective

The goal is to have an infrastructure module that reads configuration from
a property file (not log4j.properties). This file is the placeholder for
all the application real configuration. We defined a "language" in which
users can instruct the infrastructure on how to configure logback. E.g.:


My code parses these properties and needs to configure logback accordingly.

My question is  - how do I configure logback in code (assuming the main
class is managed by application teams and not infra). I need to wrap a
concise logback config file inside the infra module (jar) that holds just
enough to give me the code "window" in which I can start the parsing
mentioned above.

Any ideas?
