ArcSight SmartConnector Parser Build is now available

ArcSight SmartConnector Parser Build is now available


We are pleased to announce that ArcSight SmartConnector Parser Update build is now available for download from the HPE Marketplace web site and the HPE SSO Download Portal.

 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 released on a three-monthly cycle and 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:

  • 7.5.1 and 7.5.2 Connector Parser builds will be supported and certified on the 7.5.0 Connector Framework
  • 7.6.1, 7.6.2 and 7.6.3 Connector Parser builds will be supported and certified on the 7.6.0 Connector Framework

And so on.


Parser Enhancements has been made for the following connectors:

  • Check Point Syslog
  • Cisco ASA Syslog
  • Cisco IOS Syslog
  • Cisco IronPort Email Security ApplianceSyslog
  • Cisco Secure ACS Syslog 
  • Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Syslog

 New Device, Component, or OS Version Support 

  • VMware Web Services; vCenter 6.5 on ESXi 6.5 Events
  • McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator DB; Data Exchange Layer 3.0.1 with ePO 5.3 Events

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