Create an audit report template on your Riverbed host and then configure a third-party host to use the template to generate the audit file. See Creating a Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler Report Template and Generating an Audit File.
Create a log source on the JSA Console. The log source allows JSA to access the third-party host to retrieve the audit file. Use the following table to define the Riverbed-specific parameters:

Creating a Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler Report Template and Generating an Audit File
To prepare for Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler integration with JSA, create a report template on the Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler and then use a third-party host to generate an audit file. The third-party host must be a system other than the host you use for Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler or JSA.
Ensure that the following items are installed on a third-party host that you use to run the audit report:
SteelScript for PythonSDK from the Riverbed SteelScript for Python website (https://support.riverbed.com/apis/steelscript/index.html). The script generates and downloads an audit file in CSV format. You must periodically run this script.
- Define the audit file report template.
Log in to your Riverbed SteelCentral NetProfiler host user interface.
Select System >Audit Trail.
Select the criteria that you want to include in the audit file.
Select a time frame.
On the right side of the window, click Template.
Select Save As/Schedule.
Type a name for the report template.
- To run the report template and generate an audit file,
complete the following steps
Log in to the third-party host on which you installed Python.
Type the following command:
$ python ./get_template_as_csv.py <riverbed_host_name> -u admin -p admin -t "<report_template_name>" -o <absolute_path_to_target file>
Record the report template name and file path. You need to use the name to run the report template and when you configure a log source in the JSAinterface.
