Create a logging endpoint - BlueCat Edge - Service Point v4.x.x

BlueCat Edge User Guide

Product name
BlueCat Edge
Service Point v4.x.x

You can create a logging endpoint that stores all DNS queries in your network.

  • You can only assign one logging endpoint per site.
  • You can assign a logging endpoint to multiple sites.
  • You can create multiple logging endpoints but only one can be assigned per site. This means you can assign different logging endpoints to sites.
  1. Choose whether you are using HTTP or HTTPS.
  2. In the top navigation bar, click and select Logging Endpoints.
  3. Click New.
  4. Complete the following:
    1. Name: The unique name for the logging endpoint.
    2. Optional: Description: A description for the logging endpoint.
    3. URL: The full URL of the local logging endpoint including the protocol and host. For example, https://http-inputs-<customer>
    4. Optional: Headers: The HTTP headers for authenticating the request. For example, "X-Splunk-Request-Channel: FE0ECFAD-13D5-401B-847D-77833BD77131" and "Authorization: Splunk BD274822-96AA-4DA6-90EC-18940FB2414C"
    5. Optional: Server certificate: This is required for logging endpoints that are secured with SSL/TLS certificates. Drag and drop the root certificate for the corresponding certificate authority (root CA) in PEM format.
      • If you are securing the logging endpoints with private SSL/TLS certificates, upload the private root anchor certificate.
      • If you are using a trusted public root certificate, you do not need to upload any certificate.

      BlueCat does not recommend using the server's certificate instead of the trust anchor (root CA) in production systems, as this incurs additional overhead of updating the certificate when it expires and can result in logging downtime.
