Configuring Imperva SecureSphere V11.0 to V13 to Send Database Audit Records to JSA

To send database audit records from Imperva SecureSphere V11.0 to to V13 JSA, create a custom action set, add an action interface, and then configure an audit policy.

    2. In the Main workspace, select Policies >Action Sets.

    3. In the Action Sets pane, click the green plus sign icon.

  2. Add the action interface that you want to be part of the action set to the Selected Actions pane:
    1. Click the green up arrow icon, and then select Gateway System Log >log audit event to System Log (Gateway System Log).

    2. Configure the following action interface parameters:




      Type the name that you created for the action set. For example, JSA.


      Select UDP.


      Type the IP address or the host name of the JSA appliance for which you want to send events.



      Syslog Log Level






      The line breaks in the code example might cause this configuration to fail. For each alert, copy the code block below into a text editor, remove the line breaks, and paste as a single line in the Message field.

      ${Alert.immediateAction}|Alert ID=$
      Alert type=$
      Application name=${Alert.applicationName}|
      SecureSphere Version=$
    1. Select the Run on Every Event check box.

  3. Configure an audit policy for the events that you want to send to JSA:
    1. In the Main workspace, click Policies >Audit.

    2. Click Create DB Service.

    3. Type a name for the policy.

    4. Select Use Existing, and then select a policy from the list.

    5. Click the Match Criteria tab, and then enter the criteria for the policy.

    6. Click the Apply To tab, and then select the server group.

    7. Click the External Logger tab.

    8. From the Syslog list, select the JSA that you configured.

    9. If you select a pre-defined policy from the Syslog list, configure the Apply to and External Logger fields.

    10. Click Save.
