The netskope-webtx access a PubSub lite service hosted by Google to retrieve web transaction logs using the v2 dataexport Iterator Endpoint. Details on what is ingested can be found here.


Vendor configuration

Netskope Web Transactions integration needs to be configured using Netskope Streaming credentials. You can collect the subscription path and credentials here.

  1. You will need a subscription endpoint URL and subscription key to access the streamed events. Log in to your Netskope UI and go to Settings > Tools > Event Streaming. Copy your subscription endpoint and generate your download key from the Event Streaming page.
    • The REGENERATE ENDPOINT button generates a new subscription path. After a new subscription path is generated, a new subscription key must be generated by clicking on the GENERATE AND DOWNLOAD KEY button.
    • The old subscription path and key expire. With a new subscription path, event streaming will start fresh from the beginning of the retention period which is 7 days by default.
  2. After the transaction events feature is enabled in your account, you’ll be able to consume the data from the subscription endpoint.
  3. To receive the events from the subscription, refer to the Receiving messages from Lite subscriptions link. You can receive messages with various Client libraries. Netskope retains transaction events for seven days by default if not consumed.
  4. When you are finished configuring the file, download the JSON file.

Source configuration

When you create a Netskope WebTx API Source, you add it to a Hosted Collector. Before creating the Source, identify the Hosted Collector you want to use or create a new Hosted Collector. For instructions, see Configure a Hosted Collector.

  1. In the main Sumo Logic menu, select Manage Data > Collection > Collection.
  2. On the Collection page, click Add Source next to a Hosted Collector.
  3. Search for and select Netskope WebTx API.
  4. Enter a Name to display the Source in the Sumo web application. The description is optional.
  5. (Optional) For Source Category, enter any string to tag the output collected from the Source. Category metadata is stored in a searchable field called _sourceCategory.
  6. Forward to SIEM. Check the checkbox to forward your data to Cloud SIEM.
  7. (Optional) Fields. Click the +Add Field link to define the fields you want to associate, each field needs a name (key) and value.
    • green check circle.png A green circle with a check mark is shown when the field exists in the Fields table schema.
    • orange exclamation point.png An orange triangle with an exclamation point is shown when the field doesn't exist in the Fields table schema. In this case, an option to automatically add the nonexistent fields to the Fields table schema is provided. If a field is sent to Sumo that does not exist in the Fields schema it is ignored, known as dropped. 
  8. Netskope Streaming Credentials. Upload the JSON file downloaded from google cloud platform.
  9. When you are finished configuring the Source, click Save.
