Log Type Unknown

How do I figure out what the log type I have is when its showing me "unknown" for the current type?

Can you share an example of which logs are you talking about.

Are you talking about URL filtering logs showing category as unknown.

If that is the case verify that the URL is categorized on Brightcloud or PANDB depending whichever vendor you are using.

If it is not being categorized there and you think it should be then you can submit a re-categorization request to them.

Hope this helps.

Where are you seeing this? What log file are you looking at? Is this a custom report?

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Yes its for custom reports under the Security Profiles schema
