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.

Before You Begin


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.

    Note Starting in Junos Space Security Director Release 16.2, the Log Collector type Juniper Secure Analytics is added.

  4. Click Next.
  5. Complete the configuration for Add Collector/JSA Node according to the guidelines provided in Table 351.

    Note From Junos Space Security Director Release 17.2, for distributed Log Collector deployment, you must add only Log Receiver node.

  6. Click Next.

    The certificate details are displayed.

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

A new logging node with your configurations is added. To verify if the node is configured correctly, click Logging Management > Logging Nodes to check the status of the node.

Note In Junos Space Security Director Release 16.2, the JSA node is added only via Security Director, so the JSA node is not displayed in Space > Administration > Fabric.
