How to view correlated logs on the FW



I currently have an environment with TP, GP, ADVURL and WF and sometimes I need to see the full info of a user instead of going to traffic and check some portion then go to URL filtering and find something "maybe" related and so on.


I keep getting results of using ACC but even there it is split in tabs, so I can check traffic but then I need to switch to threats to see some more.

Is there a way even via ACC to create a view that shows everything related to that traffic?


Thank you very much.

Hi @${userLoginName} ,


If you go to the detailed log view you'll get related logs for the same session at the bottom.

Notice how this example shows the related url logs and threat logs (identified by the TYPE column) at the bottom for the selected traffic log :




Hope this helps,

In addition to what Kiwi stated, look at the Unified logs. This combines the Traffic, URL, and Threat logs into the same view. Then when you find the log you wish to drill down into, click the Magnifying glass icon.




Hope that helps.

You can control which logs are shown in Unified by clicking on the two down arrows to the left of the query field and choose your log types. To get reasonable quick responses I have been advised by TAC to limit the log types to maximum 3.

In addition to this, if you put a date and time then a great then feature, this will also speed things up. 


( receive_time geq '2023/10/06 00:00:00' ) will filter on any logs created after 12am on Oct 10.



Really appreciate all the replies, I will spare some time to check the suggestions and get back here if needed.

Thanks a lot.
