Elixir Configuration - Capture User Context

Capturing user context is a powerful feature that allows you to associate logs with users in your application. This is great for support as you can quickly narrow logs to a specific user, making it easy to identify user reported issues.

How to use it

Simply add the UserContext immediately after you authenticate the user:

%Timber.Contexts.UserContext{id: "my_user_id", name: "John Doe", email: ""}
|> Timber.add_context()

All of the UserContext attributes are optional, but at least one much be supplied.
