Removing leading domain names from usernames when Cisco ASA events are processed

  2. From the Select Log Source Type window, select Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) from the list, and then click Select.
  3. Click the Configuration tab, and then set Display DSM Parameters Configuration to on.
  4. From the Event Collector list, select the event collector for the log source.
  5. Set Remove leading domain name from username to on.
  6. Click Save and then close the DSM Editor.
