Alert on Policy Rule Modification

L0 Member

Hello Everybody,


I would like to know if there is a possibility to be alerted in case of modification of a rule.
For example: if a rule is modified, an email is automatically sent to a specific person


Thank you

Hi Valentino,
Email-server-configlog-change.jpgYes, it's possible to configure Configuration log settings with an EMAIL server. You can send a log to email for every policy config change as a notification.

Best Regards,

Thank you for your answer.
Thus, my need is to alert by mail when modifying specific rules.

Indeed, I have a hundred sensitive rules which must be monitored more precisely than the three thousand other rules.

I have a column "modified" and I thought to create an alert from Splunk with this data. But this column is not shown in Splunk.


If you have any idea, you're welcome

Ah, splunk is easier! You would create an HTTP server profile instead of email. 


See an example for slack here. So you would then just use a predefined format for config logs, but change the parameters to only be for the rules you are referencing. A little HTML copy-paste, but a big automation improvement in monitoring.
