Field Name
Receive Time (receive_time)
Time the log was received at the management plane.
Serial Number (serial)
Serial number of the device that generated the log.
Type (type)
Specifies the type of log; value is CONFIG.
Subtype (subtype)
Subtype of configuration log; unused.
Generated Time (time_generated)
Time the log was generated on the dataplane.
Host (host)
Hostname or IP address of the client machine.
Virtual System (vsys)
Virtual System associated with the configuration log.
Command (cmd)
Command performed by the Admin; values are add, clone, commit, delete, edit, move, rename, set.
Admin (admin)
Username of the Administrator performing the configuration.
Client (client)
Client used by the Administrator; values are Web and CLI.
Result (result)
Result of the configuration action; values are Submitted, Succeeded, Failed, and Unauthorized.
Configuration Path (path)
The path of the configuration command issued; up to 512 bytes in length.
Sequence Number (seqno)
A 64bit log entry identifier incremented sequentially; each log type has a unique number space. This field is not supported on PA-7000 Series firewalls.
Action Flags (actionflags)
A bit field indicating if the log was forwarded to Panorama.
Before Change Detail (before_change_detail)
This field is in custom logs only; it is not in the default format.
It contains the full xpath before the configuration change.
After Change Detail (after_change_detail)
This field is in custom logs only; it is not in the default format.
It contains the full xpath after the configuration change.
Device Group Hierarchy (dg_hier_level_1 to dg_hier_level_4)
A sequence of identification numbers that indicate the device group’s location within a device group hierarchy. The firewall (or virtual system) generating the log includes the identification number of each ancestor in its device group hierarchy. The shared device group (level 0) is not included in this structure.
If the log values are 12, 34, 45, 0, it means that the log was generated by a firewall (or virtual system) that belongs to device group 45, and its ancestors are 34, and 12. To view the device group names that correspond to the value 12, 34 or 45, use one of the following methods:
API query:
Virtual System Name (vsys_name)
The name of the virtual system associated with the session; only valid on firewalls enabled for multiple virtual systems.
Device Name (device_name)
The hostname of the firewall on which the session was logged.
