Configure Logging and Notification for a Policy

To see information about the traffic through a policy in your log files and reports, you must enable logging for that policy. When you enable logging in a policy, the Firebox generates log messages for the traffic through your Firebox that the policy manages. You can see the generated log messages in Traffic Monitor and in WatchGuard Cloud, Dimension, a WSM Log Server, or a syslog server your Firebox sends log messages to.

The logging options you can select depend on the policy type. For most packet filter and proxy policies, you select one option that enables the Firebox to generate log messages for monitoring and reports. For packet filter policies that allow connections there are separate settings to enable the Firebox to generate log messages for monitoring and reports.

For more information about the available options, see Set Logging and Notification Preferences.

Reports are available in WatchGuard Cloud and Dimension only if the Firebox sends log messages with data necessary to generate the report. For information about how to configure log messages for reports, see Where to Enable Logging for Reports.
