Select Log Forwarding Destinations

  • Device > Log Settings
Use these settings to configure log forwarding to Panorama, SNMP trap receivers, email servers, Syslog servers, and HTTP servers. You can also add or remove tags from a source or destination IP address in a log entry; all log types except System logs and Configuration logs support tagging.
If you have a Logging Service subscription and have configured and enabled the Logging Service (Device > Setup > Management), when you configure log forwarding to Panorama, the firewalls send the logs to the Logging Service. Panorama will query the Logging Service to access the logs, display the logs and generate reports.
You can forward the following log types TechDocs_logo_cropped.png : System, Configuration, User-ID, HIP Match, and Correlation logs. To specify destinations for each log type, Add one or more match list profiles (up to 64) and complete the fields described in the following table.
To forward Traffic, Threat, WildFire Submissions, URL Filtering, Data Filtering, Tunnel Inspection, GTP, and Authentication logs, you must configure a Log Forwarding profile (see Objects > Log Forwarding).
Match List Profile Settings
Description
Name
Enter a name (up to 31 characters) to identify the match list profile. A valid name must start with an alphanumeric character and can contain zeroes, alphanumeric characters, underscores, hyphens, dots, or spaces.
Filter
By default, the firewall forwards All Logs of the type for which you add the match list profile. To forward a subset of the logs, open the drop-down and select an existing filter or select Filter Builder to add a new filter. For each query in a new filter, specify the following fields and Add the query:
  • Connector—Select the connector logic (and/or) for the query. Select Negate if you want to apply negation to the logic. For example, to avoid forwarding logs from an untrusted zone, select Negate, select Zone as the Attribute, select equal as the Operator, and enter the name of the untrusted Zone in the Value column.
  • Attribute—Select a log attribute. The available attributes vary by log type.
  • Operator—Select the criterion to determine whether the attribute applies (such as equal). The available criteria vary by the log type.
  • Value—Specify the attribute value to match.
To display or export TechDocs_logo_cropped.png the logs that the filter matches, select View Filtered Logs. This tab provides the same options as the Monitoring tab pages (such as MonitoringLogsTraffic).
Description
Enter a description (up to 1,023 characters) to explain the purpose of this match list profile.
Panorama
Select Panorama if you want to forward logs to Log Collectors or the Panorama management server. If you enable this option, you must configure log forwarding to Panorama TechDocs_logo_cropped.png .
You cannot forward Correlation logs from firewalls to Panorama. Panorama generates Correlation logs based on the firewall logs it receives.
SNMP
Add one or more SNMP Trap server profiles to forward logs as SNMP traps (see Device > Server Profiles > SNMP Trap).
Email
Add one or more Email server profiles to forward logs as email notifications (see Device > Server Profiles > Email).
Syslog
Add one or more Syslog server profiles to forward logs as syslog messages (see Device > Server Profiles > Syslog).
HTTP
Add one or more HTTP server profiles to forward logs as HTTP requests (see Device > Server Profiles > HTTP).
Built-in Actions
You can add an action for all log types that include a source or destination IP address in the log entry by configuring the following settings as needed.
You can tag only the source IP address in Correlation logs and HIP Match logs. You cannot configure any action for System logs and Configuration logs because the log type does not include an IP address in the log entry.
  • Add an action and enter a name to describe it.
  • Select the IP address you want to automatically tag—Source Address or Destination Address.
  • Select the action—Add Tag or Remove Tag.
  • Select whether to register the IP address and tag mapping to the Local User-ID agent on this firewall or Panorama, or to a Remote User-ID agent.
  • To register the IP address and tag mapping to a Remote User-ID agent, select the HTTP server profile (Device > Server Profiles > HTTP) that will enable forwarding.
  • Enter or select the Tags you want to apply or remove from the target source or destination IP address.
