GlobalProtect usage PDF Report



is it possible to get a daily/weekly PDF Report over succeeded and failed GlobalProtect authentifications?


I only found the CSV Export inside the system log with an active filter (like (eventid eq globalprotectportal-auth-succ)). I'm looking for an automatic approach, with optionally a better layout.


System Log Forwarding only works for every single log, not for an overview.

I don't think the system logs are an option for the custom reports but you can get some info from the system logs using:


Failed GP auths:

( description contains 'shared' ) and ( eventid eq auth-fail ) and (time_generated in last-24-hrs)


Successful GP auths:

( subtype eq globalprotect )  and (( eventid eq globalprotectportal-auth-succ ) or ( eventid eq globalprotectportal-config-succ )) and !( description contains 'Reason: Cookie expired, Auth type: cookie.' ) and (time_generated in last-24-hrs)  and !( description contains 'User name: pre-logon' )


of course these can be fine tuned and adjusted for your setup, you may not be using pre-login or you may want to see more/less or adjust the timeframe, YMMV

Is there an option to get a daily summary (report) of new events triggered by these filters?

@mrkskhn I'm sure you could script something that would pull the information using the API calls. seems like the results returned are really something you would only need to look at in specific situations though since its not tabular format or going to be sortable easily. It would be nice if PA added some GP reporting options or an ability to export the current and/or previous users from the Remote Users box

Its disappointing that the available reporting for Globalprotect is so clunky.  I would have hoped we could create a custom report that would pull client IP, username, and auth successful/not. As the System log isnt available in custom reports, this is problematic.
