ArcSight SmartConnector Parser is now available

We are pleased to announce that ArcSight SmartConnector Parser Update build is now available for download from the Microfocus Marketplace web site 

 Note about SmartConnector Releases

To support newer device versions and to fix parsing issues more rapidly, as of release v7.3.0, the connector framework and connector parser updates are now delivered as separate releases. The connector parser update builds will be released monthly on ArcSightMarketplace, whilst enhancements to the connector framework (including latest parser updates) are available as usual on the SSO Portal.

 You can download parser releases to your workstation to be applied on standalone connectors, or for ease of upgrade and integration, starting with ArcSight Management Center (ArcMC) version 2.5,  you can use ArcMC to retrieve parser releases directly from ArcSight Marketplace for locally/remotely managed connectors.

 NB: Users of ArcMC pre v2.5 and all versions of ConnApp will need to upgrade to ArcMC v2.5 or later to benefit from the streamlined  Parser Update deployment method described above.

 Each connector parser release is supported and certified with the most recent connector framework release, thus:

  • 7.6.1, 7.6.2, 7.6.3 and 7.6.4 Connector Parser builds will be supported and certified on the 7.6.0 Connector Framework
  • 7.7.1 and 7.7.2 Connector Parser builds will be supported and certified on the 7.7.0 Connector Framework

And so on.


Parser Enhancements has been made for the following connectors:

  • F5 BIG-IP Syslog
  • Amazon Web Services CloudTrail
  • Pulse Secure Pulse Connect Secure Syslog
  • McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator DB

 New Device, Component, or OS Version Support 

  • McAfee VSE 8.8 and ENS 10.5 with ePO 5.9

 There are many more parsing issues fixed and enhancements delivered with this release. Please read the SmartConnector Release Notes or additional information.

The SmartConnector datasheet listing the SmartConnectors can be download here.

Verify that you have a SmartConnector license before installing these connectors. The SmartConnector license entitlement is included within ADP, or else bundled with ESM or Logger if you have not yet migrated to the ADP licensing model.

You can find documentation and release notes on Protect 724 here.

Thank you,

Microfocus ArcSight SmartConnector Product Team

Re: ArcSight SmartConnector Parser is now available

Has anyone experienced an issue with the ePO connector crashing or chewing up memory when AD credentials are utilized instead of local SQL account credentials with this particular parser update? We have no issue with this update on ePO connectors that use local authentication. However, we had to rollback to framework 7.7 without the parser update for connectors using AD authentication.
