I'm looking for a way to automatically/proactively report on auth-fail system log messages and not finding anything obvious. Some things I've tried;
1. I can send email under log-settings -> system -> informational, but a bit too chatty with all the other messages and only interested in auth failures for VPN connections.
2. I created a filter for ( eventid eq auth-fail ) under log -> system,, and can export it to and excel spread sheet which is what I'm looking for but not automated.
3. I looked in PDF reports -> custom reports -> add, but there is not an option to look at the "system logs" there. This seems like the way to go but does not look possible yet.
Seems like this may be a feature request to add support for system logs. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I think at this time you have possibly tried each and every scenario. I am not sure if this can be achieved using XML API but it is worth giving a try.
Appears to me like a Feature Request.

However other than reporting, you can also manage to export logs for informational level only to the syslog server
event-id == auth-fail is of informational severity.

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks for the feedback. I currently syslog to syslog-ng but looks like long term I will need to forward to splunk and have it do the alerting on and "auth-fail" messages. I will also see the feature request works for the short term.

Speaking of auth-fail (and auth-success), is it me or doesnt PA log which account name was fail/success along with client ip who attempted this?
I have already filed this to my support (among some other CEF related questions) but I was thinking if someone in here already have been digging into this?
