Okta - Cloud SIEM

Step 1: Configure collection

In this step, you configure an Okta Source to collect Okta log messages. You can configure the source on an existing Hosted Collector or create a new collector. If you’re going to use an existing collector, jump to Create an Okta Source below. Otherwise, create a new collector as described in Configure a Hosted Collector below, and then create the Okta Source on the collector.

Configure a Hosted Collector

  1. To configure a hosted collector, see Configure a Hosted Collector.  
  2. Fields
    1. If you are planning that all the sources you add to this collector will forward log messages to Cloud SIEM, click the +Add Field link, and add a field whose name is _siemForward and value is true. This will cause the collector to forward all of the logs collected by all of the sources on the collector to Cloud SIEM.
    2. If all sources in this collector will be Okta sources, add an additional field with key _parser and value /Parsers/System/Okta/Okta.

    It’s also possible to configure individual sources to forward to Cloud SIEM, as described in the following section.

Create an Okta Source

  1. To create an Okta source, see Create an Okta Source.
  2. SIEM Processing. Click the checkbox to configure the source to forward log messages to Cloud SIEM.
  3. Fields. If you are not parsing all sources in the hosted collector with the same parser, click the +Add Field link, and add a field whose name is _parser with value /Parsers/System/Okta/Okta.
  4. Click Save

Step 2: Verify ingestion

In this step, you verify that your logs are successfully making it into Cloud SIEM. 

  1. In the top menu select Configuration, and then under Incoming Data select Log Mappings.
  2. On the Log Mappings page search for Okta and check under Record Volume.
