Configuring a FireEye log source in QRadar

IBM® QRadar® automatically creates a log source after your QRadar Console receives FireEye events. If QRadar does not automatically discover FireEye events, you can manually add a log source for each instance from which you want to collect event logs.

About this task

If you are using QRadar 7.3.1 and later, you can add a log source by using the QRadar Log Source Management app.

In QRadar 7.5.0 Update Package 4 and later, when you click the Log Sources icon, the QRadar Log Source Management app opens.
