Enabling syslog on Identity governance

Hi

I trying to enable syslog integration on the IG server but with limited luck.

I have enabled it on the OSP through configutil and it works my syslog server is receiving the entries from the OSP.

I have tried to enable it on the IG as well but currently i'm not getting any events to my syslog server.

I have been through the documentation adding the relevant file in the right directory.

I have checked ig-server-logging.xml for syslog part.

It is there and i have only modified it on one default value <enabled>${com.netiq.ism.audit.cef.enabled:true}</enabled> expecting it to get the right information from the original configuration.

But still nothing is parsed to my syslog server. I have updated the xml file changing some of the log levels and these are showing up in Catalina log file so the changes are applied.

Is there anything else i should be aware of for this to work.

Setup :

IG 3.5
OS windows 2016
DB MS SQL

Best Regards Bo

Greetings,

1) Configutil is not the right tool to enable logging for OSP. Maybe
you intended to say configupdate.

2) Is OSP and ID Gov installed on the same server?

Re: Enabling syslog on Identity governance

Small update.

If i go through the syslog server i see a few entries from IG 3.5 but only service started, service stopped.

I expect that all items that is enabled like auditing etc in the ig-server-logging.xml is forwarded to the syslog server as well as logged in the catalina, is that wrong ?

After a bit of back an forth on the settings i manage to setup the correct forwarding 🙂

And the right events are getting logged in the syslog server
