you can get the logs via syslog, using the splunk forwarder oder reading local files - it depends on your setup.

In any case you have to define the sourcetype manually, see the step #4 of the install instruction:
From the App, go to Settings > Data inputs and configure Log Input; click "More settings", select drop down "Set the source type" to "Manual" and type in "MWGaccess3". (see one of the screenshots).

best regards
