Configure Bitdefender GravityZone source for Sumo Logic

You can view Bitdefender GravityZone data in Sumo Logic. To collect this type of data, you need to add a source to a Hosted Collector in Sumo Logic and configure the Bitdefender GravityZone APIs.


  • Sumo Logic account

  • Bitdefender GravityZone (cloud) account

  • Hosted Collector set up on a machine in your Sumo Logic environment

To collect Bitdefender GravityZone data via its APIs, follow these steps:

Add source to a Hosted Collector

  1. Log in to Sumo Logic.

  2. Navigate to Manage Data > Collection.

  3. Click Add Source next to a Hosted Collector.

  4. Select HTTP Logs & Metrics.

  5. Enter a Name for the source.

  6. Configure Source details and advanced options for logs.

    For more information, refer to the following Sumo Logic help article.

  7. Click Save to add the source.

    This source has a unique URL. Bitdefender GravityZone will send its data to this URL after you configure Event Push Service API.

Access source URL

  1. Navigate to Manage Data > Collection.

  2. Find the Hosted Collector by name and click Show URL.

  3. Copy the HTTP source address.

Generate Bitdefender GravityZone API key

  1. Log in to GravityZone Control Center.

  2. Click the username at the upper-right corner and choose My Account.

  3. Go to the API keys section and click Add at in this table.

  4. Enable Event Push Service API.

    You can enable other APIs to source more information from Bitdefender GravityZone.

  5. Click Save.

    To prevent the leaking of sensitive information, do not share or distribute your own generated API keys.

  6. Copy the Access URL from the Control Center API section.

    You need this key to configure Event Push Service API.

Configure Event Push Service API

Follow this procedure to set up the subscription for GravityZone Control Center events that you want to see in Sumo Logic.

  1. Open a MAC or Linux terminal.

  2. Run the echo command followed by the Bitdefender GravityZone API key with a colon (":")

    • For Linux terminal:

      > echo –n 'Ge9HCYqdU7jIDR90wN0eE1zbB5Snc5HN:' | base64 –w 0
    • For MAC terminal:

      > echo –n 'Ge9HCYqdU7jIDR90wN0eE1zbB5Snc5HN:' | base64 –b 0

    This encodes the API key in a base64 string.

    Return value example:


    You will use this encoded string as a token for POST authorization.


    Sumo Logic does not currently support authentication via the authentication header used in setPushEventSettings method. The header is still needed for the event push forwarding mechanism to work but the header itself can contain any random string as the Sumo Logic https collector will ignore it.

  3. Run the following curl commands and edit the bolded settings:

    curl -k -X POST \ \
    -H 'authorization: Basic R2U5SENZcWRVN2pJRFI5QndOMGVFMXpiQjVTbmNISE46' \
    -H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '{"params": {"status": 1,"serviceType": "jsonRPC","serviceSettings": {"url": "SumoLogic URL","requireValidSslCertificate": false, "authorization":"auth header value"},"subscribeToEventTypes": {"modules": true,"sva": true,"registration": true,"supa-update-status": true,"av": true,"aph": true,"fw": true,"avc": true,"uc": true,"dp": true,"hd": true,"sva-load": true,"task-status": true,"exchange-malware": true,"network-sandboxing": true,"adcloud": true,"exchange-user-credentials": true}},"jsonrpc": "2.0","method": "setPushEventSettings","id": "1"}'

    Return value example:


    GravityZone starts sending events to Sumo Logic after the Event Push Service settings are reloaded. This happens every 10 minutes.

    This table indicates the event types that GravityZone can send to Sumo Logic.

    Product Modules event


    Security Server Status event


    Product Registration event


    Outdated Update Server event (where the Update Server is a Relay)


    Antimalware event


    Antiphishing event


    Firewall event


    ATC/IDS event


    User Control event


    Data Protection event


    HyperDetect event


    Overloaded Security Server event


    Task Status event

  4. To start sending events immediately, run the following command and edit the emphasized settings:

    curl -k -X POST \ \
    -H 'authorization: Basic R2U5SENZcWRVN2pJRFI5QndOMGVFMXpiQjVTbmNISE46' \
    -H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '{"params": {}, "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "getPushEventSettings", "id": "2"}' 
  5. To test the integration, run the following command and edit the emphasized settings:

    curl -k -X POST \ \
    -H 'authorization: Basic R2U5SENZcWRVN2pJRFI5QndOMGVFMXpiQjVTbmNISE46' \
    -H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '{"params": {"eventType": "av"}, "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "sendTestPushEvent", "id": "3"}'

    You can now see Bitdefender GravityZone data in Manage Data > Collection.
