Consolidate Event Handlers for FortiGate System Events

In 6.0, there are several pre-defined event handlers related to FortiGate System Events. To simplify the configuration, these are now grouped into a single event handler with multiple filters.

To view the consolidated FOS event handler:
  1. In FortiAnalyzer, go to Incidents & EventsEvent Handler List.
  2. The previous pre-defined FortiGate event handlers have been replaced with an updated FortiGate event handler, Default FOS System Events, which includes eight filters:
    • Any log with a severity warning and error.
    • Any log with a severity of critical and up.
    • Wireless events with a severity below warning.
    • Compliance events with a severity below warning.
    • Maintenance events with a severity below warning.
    • Interface, tunnel, VPN, and connection events with a severity below warning.
    • Authentication events with a severity below warning.
    • Quarantine and automation events with a severity below warning.

Example of FOS event handler consolidation:
  • The legacy FOS Event Log Higher Than Warning (top-left in the example below) is now covered by the new Default FOS System Events Filter 1 and Filter 2 (right).
  • The legacy Conserve Mode (bottom-left) is now covered by the new Default FOS System Events Filter 2 (right - the level of the log entered in conserve mode is Critical).

Example of an event generated by the new consolidated handler with the log: System entered conserve mode.
