Troubleshoot the Splunk Add-on for Imperva SecureSphere WAF

General troubleshooting

For helpful troubleshooting tips that you can apply to all add-ons, see "Troubleshoot add-ons" in Splunk Add-ons. For additional resources, see "Support and resource links for add-ons" in Splunk Add-ons.

Data ingestion problems

Verify that you have configured the input correctly by confirming that:

  • you have configured the correct IP address of the Splunk platform node responsible for data collection in your Imperva SecureSphere WAF configuration.
  • the port that you configured in your Imperva SecureSphere WAF configuration matches the port you configured in your syslog input configuration.
  • the port that you are using for this input does not conflict with any other inputs.
  • your syslog input is configured to set the source type to imperva:waf.
  • you are searching the correct index. By default, this add-on uses the main index.

Field extraction does not work for multi-line events

Imperva uses macros and placeholders for sending events to Splunk. These macros and placeholders replace all the newlines in the add-on with \n.

To resolve this issue, use the #cefEscapeExtension(${placeholder}) macro on the Imperva side of your configuration.
