To forward logs as email notifications, define an email server profile by clicking Add and specifying the Email Notification Settings.
To select the email server profile for System, Config, HIP Match, and Correlation logs, see Device > Log Settings. To select the email server profile for Traffic, Threat, and WildFire logs, see Objects > Log Forwarding. You can also Monitor > PDF Reports > Email Scheduler. You cannot delete a server profile that the firewall uses in any System or Config log settings or Log Forwarding profile.
Email Notification Setting Description
Name Enter a name for the server profile (up to 31 characters). The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Location Select the scope in which the profile is available. In the context of a firewall that has more than one virtual system (vsys), select a vsys or select Shared (all virtual systems). In any other context, you can’t select the Location ; its value is predefined as Shared (for firewalls) or as Panorama. After you save the profile, you can’t change its Location.
