APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • It has been identified that the QRadar Office 365 DSM
    successfully parses the IPv6 adddress from the an Office 365
    event payload, and adds it as IPv6 on the properties, but it
    places the Log Source IPv4 address as the Source IP.
    

Local fix

  • Use the DSM Editor - As an example:
    When the ClientIP has a ipv6 value set the Source IP to
    0.0.0.0
    Expression:
    "ClientIP":"((?:[0-9a-fA-F]{0,4}:){2,7}[0-9a-fA-F]{0,4})"
    Format String: 0.0.0.0
