Configuring Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager to communicate with QRadar

To collect syslog events from Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager, you must add an external syslog server for the IBM® QRadar® host, then create one or more syslog filters for your syslog server.

About this task

For Session and Insight® events, full event parsing works only for the default fields that are provided by Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager. Session and Insight events that are created by a user, and have different combinations of fields, might appear as Unknown Session Log, or Unknown Insight Log.

The following table shows the field categories and their default fields that you can use:
