The following instructions are for configuring Cisco ISE to facilitate log ingestion into Taegis™ XDR.

Connectivity Requirements

Source Destination Port/Protocol
Cisco ISE Taegis™ XDR Collector (mgmt IP) UDP/514

Data Provided from Integration

  Auth CloudAudit DNS HTTP Netflow NIDS Process Thirdparty
Cisco ISE D           Y  

Y = Normalized | D = Out-of-the-Box Detections | V = Vendor-Specific Detections


Taegis™ XDR detectors are not guaranteed to be triggered, even if a data source's logs are normalized to a schema associated with a given detector. However, you can create Custom Alert Rules to generate alerts based on normalized data from a data source.

Configure the Cisco ISE Platform

Follow the instructions in the Cisco ISE documentation to configure log forwarding.

  1. Follow the procedure in the Remote Logging Target Settings section to create the remote Syslog target. Enter the values specified below.
Field Value
Name A unique name for the Syslog target
Target Type UDP Syslog
IP Address Taegis™ XDR Collector (mgmt IP)
Port 514
Maximum Length 1024
  1. In the Cisco ISE console, select Administration > System > Logging > Logging Categories. Add the Syslog target that you created in the previous step to the following categories.

Example Query Language Searches

To search for auth events from the last 24 hours:

FROM auth WHERE sensor_type = 'Cisco_ISE' and EARLIEST=-24h

To search for process events:

FROM process WHERE sensor_type = 'Cisco_ISE'

To search for auth events associated with a specific user:

FROM auth WHERE sensor_type='Cisco_ISE' AND source_user_name = 'foo'

Sample logs


Taegis™ XDR DOES NOT support multiple events in a single line. Each line much reference a single event and end with a newline character.
