Can event logs be received using webhooks?

Hey guys, We are trying to onboard a new source into our SIEM and I am wondering if anyone has used webhooks before to send to receivers? Is it possible? Here is the tool we are trying to receive events from: We would recommend you look at TCP webhooks as more reliable than syslog Thanks

Re: Can event logs be received using webhooks?

At present no, SIEM doesn't have a target for webhooks - this would be a product idea.  I am not sure on the use case either, the link you provided indicates webhooks are to be used for alarms - infrequent, low volume events.  SIEM is normally the repository for all the potentially relevant logs from your datasources - not just ones which triggered an alarm in a datasource.

If SIEM is not sent all events, it will not be able to correlate low-value events from multiple different datasources to identify a threat and will not be delivering its full feature set for you.
