Configuring Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager to Communicate with JSA

To collect syslog events from Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager, you must add an external syslog server for the JSA host. You will then need to create one or more syslog filters for your syslog server.

For Session and Insight events, full event parsing works only for the default fields that are provided by Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager. Session and Insight events that are created by a user, and have different combinations of fields, might appear as Unknown Session Log, or Unknown Insight Log.

  1. Log in to your Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager server.
  2. Start the Administration Console.
  3. Click External Servers >Syslog Targets.
  4. Click Add, and then configure the details for the JSA host.
  5. On the Administration Console, click External Servers >Syslog Export Filters
  6. Click Add.
  7. Select LEEF for the Export Event Format Type, and then select the Syslog Server that you added.
  8. Click Save.
