Interface flap email alert on Palo Alto 8.0

Hi Folks,


I want to configure email alert for interface flapt i.e ( subtype eq port ).


On email server profile under custom log format if I add $subtype eq port , would it be sufficient to trigger alert ?

yes, that will give you all the link changes (including speed/duplex updates, so if your switch and firewall don't always agree that will show up also)
