Log Forwarding for the Cloud Logging Service

L7 Applicator

Read step-by-step instructions on how to get Log Forwarding for the Cloud Logging Service to an Email Server. If you have questions, LIVEcommunity has answers.

 

 

 

If you're using the cloud based Logging Service to collect all your device and endpoint logs, you may have already looked into log forwarding. If not, this feature is included in Logging Service, so there's no additional licenses required to benefit from sending your logs to other receivers like SIEM solutions, the SOC for incident response, or possibly internal auditing tools.

 

We've now added email notifications as a new means of log forwarding, here's how to enable it:

 

Head over to https://apps.paloaltonetworks.com/apps.

 

Assuming you already configured Log Forwarding, select the instance you want to update. (If you have not set up Log Forwarding just yet, check out  "Add a Log Forwarding App Instance" to do so.)

You'll be able to select Log Vendor (e.g., Firewalls, traps, etc.) and which type of Log Type to forward.

OPTIONAL: Select which Action, Severity, Type, and/or Category you want to receive. (If no Filters are applied, all logs for that vendor and type will be forwarded.)
