On-boarding Ranger Audit logs to SIEM

New Contributor

Hello,

 

We are in the process of setting up our Cloudera and would like to request you to provide the steps to Integrate Audit logs from Ranger to SIEM (splunk) systems. Request you to let us know if there are any other services needed on the cluster to get this Integration(other than Ranger). 

 

Thanks a lot.

 

Regards,

Madhuri

Hi Madhuri,

 

Streaming Ranger audits to third-party services (other than HDFS, Solr) is still not officially supported. I found this article though, can you check if that helps:

Also, there's a Github page to enable streaming Ranger audits to Kafka topics:

Here's an Apache document on steps to enable Audits to a component that has log4j appender:

Hi All,

 

You can check the below article for more details on Configuring Apache ranger to send syslog to a SIEM system:

We officially support two destination location for ranger audits i.e. HDFS & SOLR
Audits to log4j is a community feature and not certified by Cloudera Engineering
