Abstract

Learn about the different log formats that Cortex XSIAM can forward to an external server or email account.

The following lists the fields for each log type that Cortex XSIAM can forward to an external server or email destination.

Keep in mind the following:

  • When log forwarding to a syslog receiver, Cortex XSIAM sends logs in the IETF syslog message format defined in RFC 5425. To facilitate parsing, the delimiter is a comma and each field is a comma-separated value (CSV) string.

    Note

    The FUTURE_USE tag applies to fields that Cortex XSIAM does not currently implement.

  • When log forwarding to an email account, Cortex XSIAM sends an email with each field on a separate line in the email body.
