Modify Web Application Security Log Profile

Modifying a logging profile to monitor application security events

A logging profile configured on BIG-IQ Centralized Management determines the kind of events that the system logs, and where the system stores these events. You can define a logging profile to record events from multiple virtual servers, from multiple devices. Changes to your security settings might require you to adjust the information that is recorded by your existing logging profile. You can edit an existing logging profile to improve your monitoring capabilities.

Edit object logging profiles

Your system must have data collection device (DCD) configured to your BIG-IQ device.
You can edit logging profiles to change the kind of information the system should log, and where you would like to store the logged data.
  1. At the top of the screen, click
  2. Go to
    L7 Security
    This displays all monitored objects.
  3. Click the Logging Profile column header to sort objects by log profile.
  4. Click the name of a Logging profile you would like to edit
    The logging profile properties screen opens.
  5. Modify the properties as needed.
    Logging profile properties are described in the
    Create logging profiles
    section of
    BIG-IQ Centralized Management: Security
    for configuration information.
  6. Save your work.
The settings are incorporated into your log profile. If the profile is assigned to a virtual server, the next deployment sends the new configuration to one or more BIG-IP devices.
