The logs stored on the Logging Service are available for queries and reports using Panorama and the Application Framework. If you need to fulfill your organization's legal compliance requirements, the Log Forwarding app enables you to easily forward logs stored on the Logging Service to external destinations. For example, you can forward logs using Syslog to a SIEM for long term storage, SOC, or internal audit obligations, and forward email notifications for critical events to an email address. Here, you'll find what you need to start forwarding your GlobalProtect cloud service, Traps Management Service, and Palo Alto next-generation firewall logs that are stored on the Logging Service.
The Log Forwarding App Release Notes details the latest Log Forwarding App features, and issues that we're working on.
