Transactional logging, ResultsAction, syslog-tcp:///server:port, RFC5424

    Hello Community,​

    we have to implement transactional logging from Multi-Protocol Gateway processing rule to a remote syslog sevrer using syslog-tcp protocol.

    Transactional data is XML, <AuditMessage>...more XML.. </AuditMessage>

    We did use ResultsAction, Destination ist set to syslog-tcp:///server:port

    We have to create syslog message format as described in https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc5424 ..

    The data, send to remote syslog sever is:     <AuditMessage>...more XML.. </AuditMessage>
    The syslog HEADER is:                                1851 <110>1 2021-09-21T16:00:00Z HOSTNAME,open,10688 1

    The remote syslog server requires the following:
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx schnipp xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    1851 <110>1 2021-09-21T16:00:00Z HOSTNAME,open,10688 1 <AuditMessage>...more XML.. </AuditMessage>

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx schnapp xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    So we have to implement transactional logging "xml over syslog-tcp".

    It seems, datapower does not care about creating the syslog HEADER as specified in RFC5424

    Is there anybody out there, who can report on how to realize it?

    Thanks to all, Eckehard

    Hi Eckehard,

    sent one possible solution to IBM Support DataPower forum this morning. Hope it helps.
