Can Windows ADFS admin event logs be read as text?

Ultra Champion

We have logs as C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs\ADFS 2.0\Admin.evtx and they reach Splunk as binary.

In props.confwe added -

[adfs:winevt:admin.evtx]
NO_BINARY_CHECK=true

However, we see them as binary code within Splunk.

Is it doable?

Regards,
Dan

It worked perfectly fine. The customer also wants the ADFS debug data and I'm not sure if it's included already... any thoughts?

Not sure whether this is right - How to collect "Analytic and Debug logs" from windows event log

They mention there - AD FS 2.0 Tracing/Debug
