POST /config/event_sources/log_source_management/ log_source_types

 

Create a new custom log source type. Log source types do not need to be deployed.

The following fields can be provided in the body of this request, all other log source type fields will be ignored:

  • name - String - The name of the log source type. Cannot be empty. Must be 241 characters or less. Must not have been used before.

  • protocol_types - Array - The optional protocols that can be used for the log source type. All protocol ids must exist, list cannot be empty. If this field is not provided, all protocols will be available for this log source type.

  • default_protocol_id - Long - The protocol option that should be the default solution for this log source type.

  • log_source_extension_id - Long - The optional log source extension that is associated with the log source type. If specified, this must correspond to an existing log source extension.

Response Description

The newly created log source type which will have the following fields:

  • id - Integer - The ID of the log source type.

  • name - String - The unique name of the log source type. The name is not localized.

  • internal - Boolean - The condition is set to 'true' if the log source type is an internal log source type (for example, System Notification, SIM Audit, Asset Profiler, and so on) for which log sources cannot be created, edited, or deleted. If this is a user configurable log source type, the condition is set to 'false'.

  • custom - Boolean - The condition is set to 'true' if this is a custom log source type; otherwise, the condition is set to 'false'.

  • protocol_types - Array - The full list of supported protocol types for the log source type. Ensure that every log source type links to at least one protocol type. Each item in this array is a ProtocolMapping structure, defining both the ID of the protocol type and a Boolean that indicates whether the protocol is documented/fully supported for this log source type.

  • default_protocol_id - Long - The ID of the default protocol type for this log source type. The ID must correspond to an existing protocol type. See the Protocol Type API (/api/config/event_sources/log_source_management/protocol_types/).

  • log_source_extension_id - Long - The log source extension that is associated with the log source type. The ID must correspond to an existing log source extension or be set to 'null'. See the Log Source Extension API (/api/config/event_sources/log_source_management/log_source_extensions/).

  • supported_language_ids - Array - The IDs of the languages supported by this log source type. Each ID must correspond to an existing log source language. See the Log Source Language API (/api/config/event_sources/log_source_management/log_source_languages/). All non-custom log source types link to at least one language. Because languages are irrelevant for custom log source types, this field is 'null' for custom types.

  • version - String - The log source type plugin version.
