  11. Click Save.

6.Enable the Splunk integration

After you created the Event Push Service key in GravityZoneControl Center and enabled HTTP Event Collector in Splunk, you need to enable the integration. That means you have to start sending events from GravityZone to Splunk.

  1. Get the information needed to configure Event Push Service settings from your favorite terminal emulator on Linux or Mac:

    • GravityZone API URL.

      You find it in MyAccount > Control Center API and it should be similar to https://cloudgz.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api.

    • The authorization header of the API key generated in GravityZone.

      The header value is Basic base64 encode. To obtain the authorization header, run the echo command followed by API key with colon (":").

      > echo –n '604821e87e4c7de3aa15d0e6a97f5ab362281dbf0763746671da2caf4b5cccd1:' | base64 –w 0

      The result should be something like this:

      NjA0ODIxZTg3ZTRjN2RlM2FhMTVkMGU2YTk3ZjVhYjM2MjI4MWRiZjA3NjM3NDY2NzFkYTJjYWY0YjVjY2NkMTo=
    • Splunk URL.

      You find it in your Splunk Cloud platform and it should be something like this: https://prd-p-xlpxkqpw84k2.cloud.splunk.com. If you use Splunk on-premises, the URL is already in place.

    • HTTP Event Collector token.

  2. Run this command (the settings you have to edit are underlined):

    > curl -k -X POST \
    https://cloudgz.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/push \
    -H 'authorization: Basic NjA0ODIxZTg3ZTRjN2RlM2FhMTVkMGU2YTk3ZjVhYjM2MjI4MWRiZjA3NjM3NDY2NzFkYTJjYWY0YjVjY2NkMTo=' \
    -H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '{"params": {"status": 1, "serviceType": "splunk", "serviceSettings": {"url": "https://input-prd-p-r2rmnllpzv4n.cloud.splunk.com:8088/services/collector", "requireValidSslCertificate": false, "splunkAuthorization": "Splunk EA900DEB-22C8-402B-A7F9-A926C1633E7A"}, "subscribeToEventTypes": {"hwid-change": true,"modules": true,"sva": true,"registration": true,"supa-update-status": true,"av": true,"aph": true,"fw": true,"avc": true,"uc": true,"dp": true,"device-control": true,"sva-load": true,"task-status": true,"exchange-malware": true,"network-sandboxing": true,"malware-outbreak": true,"adcloud": true,"exchange-user-credentials": true,"exchange-organization-info": true,"hd": true,"antiexploit": true,}, "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method":"setPushEventSettings", "id": "1"}'

    Note

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

    To start sending events immediately, run this command (the settings you have to edit are underlined):

    > curl -k -X POST \
    https://cloudgz.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/push \
    -H 'authorization: Basic R2U5SENZcWRVN2pJRFI5MHdOMGVFMXpiQjVTbmM1SE46' \
    -H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '{"params": {}, "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "getPushEventSettings", "id": "2"}'

The return should be similar to:

{"id":"1","jsonrpc":"2.0","result":true}

Test the Splunk integration

To test the integration, run this command (the settings you have to edit are underlined):

> curl -k -X POST \
https://cloudgz.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/push \
-H 'authorization: Basic R2U5SENZcWRVN2pJRFI5MHdOMGVFMXpiQjVTbmM1SE46' \
-H 'cache-control: no-cache' \
-H 'content-type: application/json' \
-d '{"params": {"eventType": "av"}, "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "sendTestPushEvent", "id": "3"}'

You can also start sending events from GravityZone to Splunk by running a script created by Bitdefender. You can do this in your favorite terminal emulator on Linux or Mac.

  1. Download the script from here.

  2. Make the script executable by running the command:

    chmod +x bdpusheventconfig.sh
  3. Run the script with the command:

    ./bdpusheventconfig.sh -g [console_url] -k [api_key] -t [service_type] -u [service_url] -a [splunk_auth_token] -v -d [events]

The script includes the following options:

These options are similar to the ones used when enabling the integration manually.
