Wi-Fi Cloud requires the IP Address or the host name and port on which the syslog server receives events.
You can forward these type of Wi-Fi cloud messages to a syslog server:
- Event logs — You can forward security and system events generated by Wi-Fi Cloud. These events must be configured with the "Notify" action to be forwarded to a syslog server. For more information about event notifications, see Configure Event Notifications.
- Audit logs — You can forward system audit logs that track Wi-Fi Cloud administrative user activity to a syslog server. For more information about audit logs, see Manage Audit Logs.
To send AP access logs to a syslog server, you must enable the Device Access Logs setting in a device template for an AP. For more information, see Device Settings.
To add a syslog server:
- Open Manage.
- Select Configuration > ESM Integration > Syslog Integration.
- Select the Enable Syslog Integration check box.
- Click Add Syslog Server.
- Configure these options:
- Syslog Server IP Address / Hostname — IP address or host name of the syslog server that Wi-Fi Cloud communicates with.
- Port Number — Port number of the syslog server to which data is sent.
- CIP — If you use a Cloud Integration Point on your network, select a CIP-enabled WatchGuard AP that you want to use to communicate with Wi-Fi Cloud.
- Message Format — Select Plain or IDMEF format for the messages that Wi-Fi Cloud sends to the syslog server.
- Enabled — Enable messages and audit logs generated by Wi-Fi Cloud to be sent to the syslog server.
- Append BOM Header — Append a BOM (Byte Order Mark) header to the messages that Wi-Fi Cloud sends to the syslog server.
- Forward Events — Send event notification messages to the syslog server.
- Forward Audit Logs — Send Wi-Fi Cloud administrative user activity logs to the syslog server (plain text only).
- Click OK.
Current Status displays the status of the syslog integration service. If the host name of the server cannot be resolved, the status displays the error: "Cannot resolve hostname for one or more destination servers”.
- Running — The service is running.
