Hi, I just installed cisco_firewall_addon for version 4.1 of splunk and I am having some issues. I have an ASA and a FWSM that I want to be recognized as a cisco_firewall sourcetype. The ASA is correctly recognized, but the FWSM is still categorized as cisco_syslog. I already went into the cisco_firewall_addon app config and changed it from %ASA OR %PIX to %ASA OR %PIX OR %FWSM and restarted, but that didn't resolve the issue. How do I change the FWSM to be recognized as cisco_firewall?

Hello, We are in the process of updating the Cisco Firewall Add-on to support FWSM but for now there are a couple of steps you can take manually and this should get things working for you.
in the local directory of the app you need to create a transforms.conf, props.conf and eventtypes.conf file if you have not done so already.
In transforms add the following stanza:
DEST_KEY = MetaData:Sourcetype
REGEX = (%FWSM)
FORMAT = sourcetype::cisco_firewall
in props.conf add the following to the top of the file:
in eventtypes.conf add the following stanza:
search = %ASA OR %PIX OR %FWSM
tags = cisco firewall
This should be all you need to get the add-on working correctly with your firewall. Please let us know how it works out for you.
