Configuring a Log Source


To integrate OpenBSD events with JSA, you must manually create a log source. JSA does not automatically discover or create log sources for syslog events from OpenBSD operating systems.

To create a log source for OpenBSD:

  1. Log in to JSA.
  2. Click the Admin tab.
  3. On the navigation menu, click Data Sources.

    The Data Sources pane is displayed.

  4. Click the Log Sources icon.

    The Log Sources window is displayed.

  5. Click Add.

    The Add a log source window is displayed.

  6. In the Log Source Name field, type a name for your log source.
  7. In the Log Source Description field, type a description for the log source.
  8. From the Log Source Type list, select OpenBSD OS.
  9. From the Protocol Configuration list, select Syslog.

    The syslog protocol configuration is displayed.

  10. Configure the following values:

    Table 1: Syslog Parameters



    Log Source Identifier

    Type the IP address or host name for the log source as an identifier for events from your OpenBSD appliance.

  11. Click Save.
  12. On the Admin tab, click Deploy Changes.

The log source is added to JSA. You are now ready to configure your OpenBSD appliance to forward syslog events.
