Clearpass cannot parse NGFW threat logs

L0 Member

I am trying to parse the threat log from NGFW 10.2.6 to clearpass version 6.9.11. Is there someone here perfected the Syslog Custom Format so that Clearpass can parse it? Currently, I'm using this format and still no good:


CEF:0|Palo Alto Networks|PAN-OS|$sender_sw_version|$subtype|$type|$number-of-severity|rt=$cef-formatted-receive_time deviceExternalId=$serial src=$src dst=$dst sourceTranslatedAddress=$natsrc destinationTranslatedAddress=$natdst cs1Label=Rule cs1=$rule suser=$srcuser duser=$dstuser app=$app cs3Label=Virtual System cs3=$vsys cs4Label=Source Zone cs4=$from cs5Label=Destination Zone cs5=$to deviceInboundInterface=$inbound_if deviceOutboundInterface=$outbound_if cs6Label=LogProfile cs6=$logset cn1Label=SessionID cn1=$sessionid cnt=$repeatcnt spt=$sport dpt=$dport sourceTranslatedPort=$natsport destinationTranslatedPort=$natdport flexString1Label=Flags flexString1=$flags proto=$proto act=$action request=$misc cs2Label=URL Category cs2=$category flexString2Label=Direction flexString2=$direction externalId=$seqno requestContext=$contenttype cat=$threatid filePath=$cloud fileId=$pcap_id fileHash=$filedigest



Please help. 🙂
