Under Device tab--> server profiles---> syslog

you create a syslog server profile


Then you go to log forwarding option under

Objects tab--> log forwarding

Then choose that profile in the log forwarding profile for the logs you want forwarded to the syslog


This will allow you to forward the traffic logs for all the severity and if you want you can forward it for all the threat logs or the needs threat logs.

Let us know if this helps.

Thank you

If you want to forward all the traffic logs then you have to apply the log forwarding profile to all the security policies, there is no other way. A quick way of doing this would be to do it via appending changes to the XML config via XML editor and then re importing the config back (its a hardway but cannot think of any better solution).

Hi mbutt,

You mean when we made this setting we do not need to go to every policy and select forward and syslog from options?

Because this setting did not work for us.if you are sure we'll chek our config.
