This is how you onboard firewalls to
Strata Logging Service
using Panorama.
  1. On your firewalls, allow access to the ports and FQDNs required to connect to
    Strata Logging Service
    . If you are using a proxy server, allow the same ports and FQDNs on the server without SSL decryption.
    Ensure that you are not decrypting traffic to
    Strata Logging Service
    .
  2. (
    Optional
    ) To configure firewall to connect to
    Strata Logging Service
    through a proxy server: .
    • On firewall, select
      Device
      Setup
      Services
      Use proxy to send logs to
      Strata Logging Service
    • On Panorama, select
      Setup
      Services
      Use proxy to send logs to
      Strata Logging Service
  3. By default, the management interface is used to forward logs to
    Strata Logging Service
    . If you choose not to use the management interface, use a data interface by configuring destination service routes for the following FQDNs: api.paloaltonetworks.com, apitrusted.paloaltonetworks.com, lic.lc.prod.us.cs.paloaltonetworks.com,certificatetrusted.paloaltonetworks.com, certificate.paloaltonetworks.com.
    1. Select
      Device
      Setup
      Services
      Global
      .
      Global
      on a firewall without multiple virtual system (multi-vsys) capability.
    2. Under Services Features, click
      Service Route Configuration
      .
    3. Select
      Customize
      .
    4. Under Service, select the following:
      • Palo Alto Networks Services
      • CRL status
      • DNS
      • HTTP
      • NTP
    5. Set
      Selected Service Routes
      .
    6. Select the
      Source Interface
      you want to use for activation and then select a
      Source Address
      from that interface and click
      OK
      .
    7. Select
      Destination
      and
      Add
      a destination.
    8. Enter any of the FQDNs above as
      Destination
      .
    9. Select the same
      Source Interface
      and
      Source Address
      that you selected for activation and click
      OK
      .
    10. Add
      two more destinations for the same interface using the remaining two FQDNs.
    11. Click
      OK
      again to exit Service Route Configuration.
    12. Update the access rules required to connect to
      Strata Logging Service
      for the new interface IP address.
  4. Configure NTP so that the firewall stays in sync with
    Strata Logging Service
    . Ignore this step if you have enabled proxy configuration.
    • On the firewall, select
      Device
      Setup
      Services
      NTP
      and set it to the same
      NTP Server Address
      you configured on Panorama. For example:
      pool.ntp.org
      .
  5. Install a device certificate for managed firewalls. If this is your first time installing a device certificate, you must delete the
    Strata Logging Service
    key and re-fetch it by issuing the following commands:
    > delete license key <CDL_License_Key> > request license fetch
  6. Onboard the firewalls to a
    Strata Logging Service
    instance.
    1. Log in to the hub and open the
      Strata Logging Service
      app to the instance to which you are onboarding.
    2. Select
      Inventory
      Firewalls
      Add
      .
    3. Select
      New
      and
      Next
      .
    4. Select the firewalls to connect to
      Strata Logging Service
      and choose whether
      Strata Logging Service
      will store or only ingest their data.
    5. Submit
      your choices.
  7. Retrieve and push the
    Strata Logging Service
    licenses for managed firewalls. Ensure that you have subscribed to a valid support license of
    Strata Logging Service
    (90 days software warranty is not counted as a valid support license).
    1. From Panorama, select
      Panorama
      Device Deployment
      License
      .
    2. First
      Refresh
      and then select the firewalls from the list. Panorama retrieves the licenses, deploys them to the selected firewalls, and updates the licensing status on the Panorama web interface. Make sure you see that Panorama successfully installed the
      Strata Logging Service
      license on the firewall.
      Do not
      Refresh
      again until the first refresh completes. When the refresh completes, you will see that Status shows Completed and Progress is 100%. There are also Details about whether the refresh succeeded.
  8. (
    Optional
    ) If you have not created a template and a device group, from Panorama create a template and a device group to push log forwarding settings to the firewalls from which you want to forward logs to
    Strata Logging Service
    .
  9. Enable the firewalls in the template to send logs to
    Strata Logging Service
    and select the region where you want the logs stored.
    • If some firewalls in your deployment are sending logs to dedicated Log Collectors or to Panorama with a local Log Collector, only firewalls that belong to the template with the Enable
      Strata Logging Service
      option selected can send logs to
      Strata Logging Service
      .
    • You cannot onboard firewalls to send logs to
      Strata Logging Service
      hosted in China region.
    1. Select
      Device
      Setup
      Management
      .
    2. Select the
      Template
      that contains the firewalls from which you want to forward logs to
      Strata Logging Service
      .
    3. Edit the
      Strata Logging Service
      settings.
    4. Enable either of the two following options:
      • Enable Logging Service
        —Send and save logs to
        Strata Logging Service
        only. With this option, use Explore or Panorama to see and interact with your log data.
      • Enable Duplicate Logging
        —For firewalls running PAN-OS 8.1 and later releases, you can send and save logs both to
        Strata Logging Service
        and to your Panorama and log collection setup. Firewalls save a copy of all log data to both Panorama and
        Strata Logging Service
        except for system and config logs, which are sent to Panorama only.
      To forward logs to
      Strata Logging Service
      with Duplicate Logging enabled, you must add the firewalls with the option enabled to a Collector Group.
    5. Enable Enhanced Application Logging to allow the firewall to collect data for apps running the Palo Alto Networks Cloud Services environment. These logs provide Palo Alto Networks Cloud services apps increased visibility into network activity and, in some cases, are required to support app features.
    6. Select the
      Region
      where you want to forward logs for the firewalls associated with this template and then click
      OK
      .
      This region is not necessarily where your firewalls are located but the location of the
      Strata Logging Service
      instance. They will send logs to the
      region of the
      Strata Logging Service
      instance
      to which you onboarded them.
      The option to
      Onboard Without Panorama
      is used only for firewalls that are not managed by Panorama; there’s no need to populate it when you’re enabling Panorama-managed firewalls to forward logs to
      Strata Logging Service
      .
    7. Specify the
      Connection count to
      Strata Logging Service
      for PA-7000s and PA-5200s
      .
      Specify the number of connections that are established between the firewalls and
      Strata Logging Service
      for forwarding logs to
      Strata Logging Service
      (range is 1 to 20; default is 5).
    8. (
      Optional
      ) Configure interfaces and zones in the template.
    9. Commit and push the config to the firewalls.
  10. Firewall fetches a certificate automatically after pushing the configuration. To check the certificate status:
    If a certificate was not fetched for a firewall, run this command locally to fetch a certificate:
    request logging-service-forwarding certificate fetch
  11. Enable Panorama-managed firewalls to
    send logs to
    Strata Logging Service
    .
    Remember that for any firewalls from which you want to forward logs to
    Strata Logging Service
    and that are not already managed by Panorama, you first need to add the firewalls to Panorama as managed devices.
