Related Logs in Traffic Log - no URL-Filtering?

L3 Networker

Hi,

isn't the "Related Logs" field in the details of a traffic log entry supposed to list logs from other logging categories like URL-Filtering or Data-Filtering as well? I only seem to get other traffic logs in the related log field.

Example:

* outgoing web-browsing is allowed, logging is turned on

* URL-filtering is in place, logging is turned on (action: alert)

* User browses to www.wired.com, category "News" (I just made that up).

Result:

* I see the request in the URL-Filtering logs

* I see the request in traffic logs

BUT:

* I open the corresponding traffic log entry to see the details and look at the "related logs" field. Nothing from the URL-Filter shows up here. Even though it was logged.

It does work the other way around (looking at URL-Filter log entry details, related logs shows corresponding traffic log entries).

Is this a but? PanOS 5.02.

Thanks. That's strange. If I do a search on a specific session ID like you did, the related logs show up. If I randomly pick any other web-browsing traffic log, the related logs do not show.

Searched traffic logs and found one where there was no correlating "URL" threat log. So I scoured the url logs and filtered by dst ip and src port equivalent to what was detected via the traffic log and sure enough, no URL log found .

Not in my case. I definitely have corresponding URL logs that do not show up in related logs. 100%
