How to integrate PA syslog with Algosec ?

I am struggling with Algosec regarding the ability to forward syslog data with the right format.

Traffic is hitting the Algosec server but is is not parsing any PA Traffic log data.

Because the format and content in the traffic log is customisable I wonder if I am using the correct format here..

Any tip is highly appreciated

I know this post is old, but did you ever get syslog from PA to AlgoSec to work?

I am struggling with the same issue; the AlgoSec is getting traffic from PA but it is not parsed.

Anyone else got AlgoSec to work with Palo Alto?

Best regards

Sorry for my late reply.

No I did not get it to function. In the end the project was put on hold.

Hoping to get going soon.

The syslog implementation guide should be a great reference to construct your own syslog strings.

Remember however that syslog in total is limited to 1024 bytes per msg. Dunno how custom format in PA handles this.
