Audit Stream

Audit streaming provides enterprise-tier customers with the ability to stream their audit events to their chosen security information and event management (SIEM) solution.

Audit streaming is only available from Octopus 2022.4 onwards.

Configure Audit Stream

You can configure the audit stream from the Audit page in the Configuration area. Click Stream Audit Log to open the configuration dialog.

Audit Stream Not Configured

Currently we support streaming to Splunk and Sumo Logic.

Streaming to Splunk

An HTTP Event Collector is required to stream audit events to Splunk. See the Splunk documentation for how to set up an HTTP Event Collector. Once you have set up a collector, you will need to provide two configuration values in Octopus:

  • Splunk Endpoint URL: The base URL of your Splunk instance
  • Token: The Token Value of your HTTP Event Collector

Streaming to Sumo Logic

An HTTP Logs and Metrics Source is required to stream audit events to Sumo Logic. See the Sumo Logic documentation for how to set up an HTTP Logs and Metrics Source. Once you have set up a collector, you will need to provide a single configuration value in Octopus:

  • Sumo Logic Endpoint URL: The URL of your HTTP Source. This is treated as a sensitive value as the token for the collector is included in the URL

Updating the Audit Stream

Once you have saved an initial configuration of the audit stream, the status on the UI will update to reflect that streaming is now enabled. Any new audit events will also be streamed to your SIEM solution.

You can change the audit stream configuration by clicking Stream Audit Log again. This will open a pop-up menu with the following options:

  • Edit: You can select a different SIEM provider or make changes to the configured endpoint.
  • Pause/Resume: You can pause audit streaming, preventing any new audit events from being streamed to the configured endpoint. This will show as Resume if the audit stream is already paused.
  • Delete: You can delete the audit stream configuration, which will clear any data relating to the audit stream and prevent any new audit events from being streamed.
