    Adding Logging Nodes

    Use this page to configure logging nodes. You must deploy either Security Director Log Collector or Juniper Secure Analytics (JSA) as a log collector and then add it to Security Director to view the log data in the Dashboard, Events and Logs, Reports, and Alerts pages.

    To add Log Collector to Security Director:

    1. Select Administration > Logging Management > Logging Nodes.
    2. Click the + icon to add logging nodes. The Add Logging Node page appears.
    3. Choose the Log Collector type as Security Director Log Collector or Juniper Secure Analytics.

      If you select the Log Collector type as Security Director Log Collector, then select the deployment.

    4. Click Next.
    5. Complete the configuration for Add Collector/JSA Node according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.

      If the Log Collector type is Security Director Log Collector, then Add Another Node is displayed to add multiple nodes as needed.

    7. Click Finish.
    8. Review the summary of configuration changes from the summary page and click Edit to modify the details, if required.
