Splunk Certified
This is a set of technology adapters for splunk to extract Cisco Meraki logs via syslog. Meraki sends a bunch of different log formats; some logs more complete than others. Majority of all logs extracted are CIM compliant and deposited into the Splunk Common Information Model.

Provides records following the below listed CIM models:
meraki-ids-alerts (ids,attack); meraki-flows (network,communicate), meraki-urls (web,proxy), meraki-dhcp (network,session,dhcp)

This is a technology adapter that enables front end applications to view meraki data via the common information model. If the front end is written to CIM standards your meraki data will automatically appear in that app. Examples include Splunk Enterprise Security (and likely others).

This TA-app assumes the following:
Cisco Meraki logs will all have sourcetype meraki

This app provides the following common information models:
ids = enabled
attack = enabled
network = enabled
communicate = enabled
web = enabled
proxy = enabled
network = enabled
session = enabled
dhcp = enabled

Due to difficulty in sometimes identifying the various services meraki provides; I recommend opening up a separate port on your syslog server with a filter as listed below; or adding a new UDP high address port on a heavy forwarder, or if you only had one indexer that box and then configuring that box as a syslog server with the UDP high address port chosen.


host_segment = 4

sourcetype = meraki

sourcetype = meraki

Sample config for syslog-ng

port to process meraki

source s_ext_udp_15146 {
udp(so_rcvbuf(1073741823) log_fetch_limit(10000) port(15146));
filter f_meraki { facility(local0) };
log {
destination d_meraki {
owner(root) group(adm) perm(0640) dir_perm(0751) dir_group(adm) create_dirs(yes) template("$ISODATE $HOST $MSGHDR$MSGONLY\n"));

Release Notes

Version 1.0.7
Aug. 31, 2017

Re-Released under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported. (source of support changed Some cleanup. New logo.

Version 1.0.6
March 10, 2017

changed category field to a multi-field in order to pick up multiple category websites

Version 1.0.5
Jan. 31, 2017

bugfix for AP, flows were reported at the end of the log line unlike the other devices. Removed to blank space check at the end of [meraki_dest_port2]

Version 1.0.4
Jan. 27, 2017

cleanup on DHCP portion to make it easier to read
cleanup on signature_id to become more useful (applied signature_id to dhcp entries based on Microsoft DHCP error ids)
applied coalesce to a few different variables that were being reported by different regex's (signature_id,meraki_action,meraki_priority)

Version 1.0.3
Jan. 26, 2017

bugfix report of different logformat for flows on MX access point. Added new extractions for flows on AP.
bugfix regarding if you search for a signature created in the dhcp portion it was being overwritten by #FIELDALIAS-signature = category AS signature from the web portion; changed to a coalesce so now you can do a regular search on both without searching the model

Version 1.0.2
Jan. 24, 2017

bugfix: thank you jgrayccm;

Version 1.0.1
Oct. 5, 2016

added meraki_dhcp_lease_release extraction
added meraki_events_ad extraction, basic identification for Active Directory activity
added meraki_date_clipper, if added to indexer or heavy forwarder this removes unix timestamp date and saves about 19 bytes of data per log file (normal syslog timestamp still exists) (optional), if the file format changes this will have no effect
