Cisco SecureX connects the breadth of Cisco’s integrated security portfolio and your infrastructure. This integration allows you to collect data from Cisco SecureX API and send it to your Logz.io account.
Pull the Docker image of the Logz.io API fetcher
docker pull logzio/logzio-api-fetcher
Create a local directory for this integration
You will need a dedicated directory to use it as mounted directory for the Docker container of the Logz.io API fetcher.
mkdir logzio-api-fetcher cd logzio-api-fetcher
Create a configuration file
In the directory created in the previous step, create a file
config.yaml using the example configuration below:
logzio: url: https://<<LISTENER-HOST>>:8071 token: <<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>> auth_apis: - type: api_fetcher name: cisco credentials: id: <<API_CREDENTIALS_ID>> key: <<API_CREDENTIALS_KEY>> settings: time_interval: 5 days_back_fetch: 7 filters: event_type%5B%5D: '1090519054' start_date: 2021-10-05T10%3A10%3A10%2B00%3A00 custom_fields: type: cisco level: high
|URL||Use the listener URL specific to the region where your Logz.io account is hosted. Click to look up your listener URL. The required port depends whether HTTP or HTTPS is used: HTTP = 8070, HTTPS = 8071.||Required|
|TOKEN||Your Logz.io account token. Replace
|type||The type of the Auth API. Currently we support the following types: cisco_secure_x, general.||Required|
|name||The name of the Auth API. Please make names unique.||Required|
|credentials.id||The Auth API credentials id.||Required|
|credentials.key||The Auth API credentials key.||Required|
|settings.time_interval||The Auth API time interval between runs.||Required|
|settings.days_back_fetch||The max days back to fetch from the Auth API.||Optional. Default value is 14 days.|
|filters||Pairs of key and value of parameters that can be added to the Auth API url. Make sure the keys and values are valid for the Auth API.||Optional|
|custom_fields||Pairs of key and value that will be added to each data and be sent to Logz.io.||Optional|
Create a Last Start Dates text file
Create an empty text file named last_start_dates.txt in the same directory as the config file:
$ touch last_start_dates.txt
After every successful iteration of an API, the last start date of the next iteration will be written to last_start_dates.txt. Each line starts with the API name and ends with the last start date.
If you stopped the container, you can continue from the exact place you stopped, by adding the date to the API filters in the configuration.
Run the Docker container
docker run --name logzio-api-fetcher \ -v "$(pwd)":/app/src/shared \ logzio/logzio-api-fetcher
Stop the Docker container
When you stop the container, the code will run until the iteration is completed. To make sure it will finish the iteration on time, please give it a grace period of 30 seconds when you run the
docker stop command.
docker stop -t 30 logzio-api-fetcher
Check Logz.io for your logs
Give your logs some time to get from your system to ours,
and then open Open Search Dashboards. You can filter for data of your custom field type value or type
api_fetcher to see the incoming Cisco SecureX logs.
If you still don’t see your logs, see log shipping troubleshooting.
