If you want to archive Cortex Data Lake logs for long-term storage, for SOC or internal audit, or to fulfill your organization's legal compliance requirements, the Log Forwarding app enables you to forward these logs 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 Cortex Data Lake log data.

The Log Forwarding App Release Notes details the latest Log Forwarding App features, and issues that we're working on.
