Cloud Connector Config Log Processing - General Properties

Log Processing 

IMPORTANT: You must have the Skyhigh Cloud Connector user role to configure Cloud Connector. For details, see About User Roles and Access Levels

Provides options to configure log filtering and processing.

For other Cloud Connector Configuration tabs and fields, see About Cloud Connector Configuration


Previously, when you installed Skyhigh Cloud Connector, you had to send a sample log file to Skyhigh Security Support in order to create your Log Processor configuration, also called the Log Parser. 

In the Log Processing Sub Configuration, the Skyhigh Cloud Connector Log Parser Wizard allows you to avoid that step. Now when you install Cloud Connector, a default Log Processor configuration is included.

For details, see Cloud Connector Config Log Processing - Sub-Configuration.
