Global Protect Logs in CEF Format

L0 Member

Hi Everyone,

I need to send Global Protect logs to Arcsight connector in CEF format.

looking through all documentations of CEF configuration Guide that are available, there is nothing mentioned about Global Protect logs and how to convert them to CEF format.

Anyone has an idea how to accomplish this ?

Hi Armanka,

Yes, GlobalProtect log type is not mentioned in the CEF Configuration Guide:

It's a deployment area, I would suggest to please first check with your SE and Account Team and open a Support Ticket on this.



Could you please provide details on below points on Global Protect
1) At first, is it possible at all to generate Global Protect logs in CEF ?
2) what are other different log formats(ex: syslog, cef etc) it can generate to send data to different SIEM solutions(ex: Arcsight, IBM QRadar) solution for integration??
