Article summary

To configure HTTPS Logs settings:

  1. From the top right corner of any page, click image.png. The System Settings page opens.
  2. In the Categories/Subcategories pane of the System Settings page, expand External Integrations, and select HTTPS Logs.


  • Use HTTPS logs (required, default: switched off) - Toggle on to use an HTTPS logs server.

This setting must be switched on if you want to use the Send to HTTPS Log Server action.

When Use HTTPS logs is activated, all log entries shown in the Activity Logs module are sent to the configured HTTPS log server.
When you use HTTPS logs, define HTTPS logs host, Port (optional), and the HTTPS proxy (optional).

  • Authorization header - An authorization header to be used for authentication with the log server.
    Example value: “Basic AaBbCc123456”

  • Extra headers around message (JSON format) (optional, default: empty) - Use this setting to add a JSON formatted string that can be added to the HTTPS Log JSON thus enabling efficient integration with tools that accept input of JSON. The input should appear as follows:

     {"index": 12345, "sourcetype": "_json"}
  • Max retries (optional, default = 3) - The maximum number of retries to perform if connection to the HTTPS logging server is not successful.

  • Backoff for retries in seconds (optional, default = 0.5) - The number of seconds to wait between retries, using exponential backoff. (By default, the wait between retries is 0.5s, 1s, 2s.)
