Log Forwarding from
Strata Logging Service
in China

May, 2024
You can forward firewall logs stored in
Strata Logging Service
hosted in China to external destinations. Contact Palo Alto Networks to enable log forwarding from
Strata Logging Service
China. In addition, while configuring log forwarding profiles acknowledge the notice that sending logs to servers outside China can result in personally identifiable information leaving China.
Log forwarding enables you to easily forward firewall logs stored in
Strata Logging Service
to an external destination to support your organization’s legal compliance requirements, long-term storage, and monitoring. Configure
Strata Logging Service
to forward logs to a syslog server, HTTPS server, or an email server in multiple formats. You can also set log filters to specify which logs
Strata Logging Service
should forward to the destination server. Log forwarding also supports forwarding old logs spanning up to the past 3 days from
Strata Logging Service
to the preferred external destination with a log replay option.

Remote Browser Isolation Logging

November, 2023
You can view Remote Browser Isolation logs in Explore and Log Viewer. See the Schema Reference for more information about the log fields.
Browser and web-based attacks are continuously evolving, resulting in security challenges for many enterprises. Web browsers, being a major entry point for malware to penetrate networks, pose a significant security risk to enterprises, prompting the increasing need to protect networks and devices from zero day attacks. Highly regulated industries, such as government and financial institutions, also require browser traffic isolation as a mandatory compliance requirement.
While most enterprises want to block 100% of attacks by using network security and endpoint security methods, such a goal might not be realistic. Most attacks start with the compromise of an endpoint that connects to malicious or compromised sites or by opening malicious content from those sites. An attacker only needs one miss to take over an endpoint and compromise the network. When this happens, the consequences of that compromise and the impact to your organization can be damaging.
Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) creates a no-code execution isolation environment for a user's local browser, so that no website code and files are executed on their local browser. Unlike other isolation solutions, RBI uses next-generation isolation technologies to deliver near-native experiences for users accessing websites without compromising on security.
RBI is a service that isolates and transfers all browsing activity away from the user's managed devices and corporate networks to an outside entity such as Prisma Access, which secures and isolates potentially malicious code and content within their platform. Natively integrated with Prisma Access, RBI allows you to apply isolation profiles easily to existing security policies. Isolation profiles can restrict many user controls such as copy and paste actions, keyboard inputs, and sharing options like file uploading, downloading, and printing files to keep sensitive data and information secure. All traffic in isolation undergoes analysis and threat prevention provided by Cloud-Delivered Security Services (CDSS) such as Advanced Threat Prevention, Advanced WildFire, Advanced URL Filtering, DNS Security, and SaaS Security.

Query Usability Enhancements

September 15, 2023
You can now use enhanced filtering and viewing capabilities to search and view relevant logs easily. The enhancements include:
  • Search in the query builder shows autosuggestions most relevant to the search string.
    • Search in the query builder shows autosuggestions most relevant to the search string.
    • The query builder suggests all the supported values for the field to build the query.
    • Search field names using substrings (for example, search with the string ‘user’ returns suggestions such as source_user, destination_user).
    • Search for a field based on the display name in the log table and not just the actual field name in the log record. You can create a query using both field names.
    • Press Shift + Enter to start a new line in the query builder, and press Enter to submit a query.

to 0 in
Storage
Configuration
. If you do want to store logs, ensure that
Quota
is greater than 0 and
Max Retention Days
is not set to 0.
Related Log Events
February 2021
Certain network logs—Traffic, Threat, URL, File—now show you the other events logged during the same session.
Without leaving the context of the log you’re interested in, you can see the sequence of related events for the session. Related logs are displayed chronologically, top to bottom—the log with the earliest timestamp is listed first.
Select a related log to investigate the details for that event.
Log Format Updates
February 2021
To take advantage of these features, you must edit and resubmit your log forwarding profiles.
New Log Fields
—To support the transport of richer data about your network traffic,
Strata Logging Service
now processes new log fields from PAN-OS: device group (DG) hierarchy and secure web gateway (SWG) fields. The DG hierarchy field helps you identify which firewall Device Group generated a log, and SWG fields provide more detailed user Authentication information.
New Email Log Format
—For better consistency across log outputs, the log fields in email log forwarding now more closely resemble other supported formats, such as LEEF and the format used in
Explore
. This does not affect email forwarding profiles that were migrated from an older version of
Log Forwarding
.
Log Field Modification
—For better consistency with other log fields, the
ProfileToken
field now has the first letter capitalized. If you reference this field in automation scripts, ensure that it reads
ProfileToken
.
Log Forwarding Filter Updates
February 2021
To take advantage of these features, you must edit and resubmit your log forwarding profiles.
Editable Migrated Filters
—You now have the flexibility to modify the queries in log forwarding filters that you may have retained from an earlier version of the Log Forwarding app.
Migrated filters will not tell you if a query that you entered is valid. To validate a query, create a new filter and test it there. When you determine the query works, then paste it into the migrated filter.
Filter Deletion Confirmation
—To prevent you from accidentally deleting log forwarding filters, filter deletion is now a two-step process.
In-App Device Connection Management
January 2021
For smoother device onboarding, you can now view a list of your available Panorama and firewall devices and generate onboarding keys for them within the app.
Redesigned UI
January 2021

LEEF Format Support for IBM QRadar
November 2020
You can now forward logs in Log Extended Event Format (LEEF) for use with IBM QRadar SIEM.
Combined Log Types
November 2020
To simplify the list of available log types for log forwarding, the
tunnel
log type now includes
GTP
logs, and
Threat
logs now include
WildFire
logs.
Because log forwarding profiles can only include one filter per log type, if you had a log forwarding profile with a log filter for both of the formerly separate log types, you will now see a new log forwarding profile. This profile contains the log filter that could not be duplicated in the original profile.
For example, a log forwarding profile with filters for both
tunnel
and
GTP
logs now appears as two profiles, each with a
tunnel
filter. One of the profiles will continue filtering
tunnel
logs and the other will filter
GTP
logs, which are now included in tunnel logs. The new profile will be called
<
original name
> - GTP
or, in the case of
Threat
and
WildFire
,
<
original name
> - WildFire
.
Non-Editable Log Forwarding Filters
November 2020
Some log filters created in the previous Log Forwarding app can no longer be edited. If you would like to change such filters, you must delete them and create new ones.
Because some fields in the migrated filters are no longer available, you may not be able to recreate an identical filter if you delete it.

New App-ID for Palo Alto Networks Shared Services
May 2019
For better application visibility and control, you now have a new App-ID for paloalto-shared-services, in addition to the App-ID for the palo-alto-logging-service. The paloalto-shared-services App-ID identifies traffic for any shared services that are used by Palo Alto Networks including Directory Sync Service, Logging Service, and Magnifier; any paloalto-shared-services traffic that was earlier identified as ssl, web-browsing will now be identified as paloalto-shared-services.
If you have a Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall between the Panorama appliance and the internet, you must add a security policy rule on the firewall to allow the paloalto-logging-service and paloalto-shared-services App-IDs from the Panorama appliance to the internet. These applications allow SSL-secured communication to the
Strata Logging Service
that the Panorama appliance uses to query logs, and enable communication to the shared services and the
Strata Logging Service
for performing certificate status and revocation checks.
