In JSA products, you can create a new option for the SNMP trap selection in the custom rules wizard. The trap names that are specified in the list box are configured in the snmp-master.xmlconfiguration file.

  1. Use SSH to log in to JSA as the root user.
  2. Go to the /opt/qradar/conf directory.
  3. Create an SNMP settings file for the new trap.Tip

    Copy, rename, and modify one of the existing SNMP settings files.

  4. Make a backup copy of the snmp-master.xml file.
  5. Open the snmp-master.xml file for editing.
  6. Add a new <include> element.

    The <include> element has the following attributes:
