QRadar and Webgateway configuration



I want to send the log files from the webgateway to a QRadar SIEM.

According to the IBM way of doing things (as described in the QRadar DSM guide), there is a file (log_handlers-1.1.tar.gz) which should be used:

"Importing the Syslog Log Handler
About this task
To Import a policy rule set for the syslog handler:
1. From the support website, download the following compressed file:
2. Extract the file.
The extract file provides XML files that are version dependent to your McAfee Web Gateway

Do you know where I can find that file?

As this moment the incoming logs are not recognized in QRadar.

Event Name: unknown; Low Level Category: Unknown

a (edited) log sample: Jul 29 11:50:56 [29/Jul/2019:13:50:56 +0200] "a.user" 200 "xGETx hxxps:// HTTP/1.1" "News/advertisements" "Minimal Risk" "" 342 681 "Mozilla/9.0 (Windows NT 10.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko" "" "0" ""

Hi Wilco,

I only found a newer version of the file that can be downloaded from the IBM support page:
