Hi,

Can anyone help me out on how to create a CEF Folder Follower Connector ?

Thanks,
Sahaya

Hi,

I wish you posted your  cef properties file.

Bummer that the arcsight flex-connector install doesn't include any sample properties files (as far as I can tell) for the cef log.

I am using "ArcSight FlexConnector Multiple Folder File" connector with a type of "cef" (option 3).

Thanks

cef_files is SmartConnector out-of-box parser.

I don't understand how to do the mapping. Is there a properties file for the mapping? I.e. it is not just a straight cef-to-cef pass-through with no mapping?

Thanks

To elaborate:

I can do a regex parsing, and it will parse the seven header fields of the CEF record, but then the remainer key=value fields are not parsed.

Or I can do a cef parsing, in which case the CEF header fields are not parsed and end up being a bunch of vertical bars on the output-side.

Since CEF is a basic arcsight format, I would think that they have basic support for it?

Thanks
