How to setup Test event


We have a SIEM that is used by our customers. ERs sit on customer prem and Core sits on our prem. We are looking for a way to setup testing to verify everything from the ER to correlation, rules to sending a trap for the event is working. Is there a simple way to set something like this(test event) up without us having to ask a customer to actually manually send/trigger something on their side to the ER to go through the process? 

Thanks for your help.

Re: How to setup Test event

If you have syslog datasources you can upload a text file to them, which will be run through the parsers and treated as if it was a collected event.

For other datasource types, you would need the datasource to send sample events.
