Admin only logs in Log Exporter

Is it possible to set Log Exporter to only syslog admin audit logs and not traffic logs. I have seen within file:

/opt/CPrt-R80/log_exporter/targets/logrhythm/conf/log_indexer_settings.conf  the setting :log_files (all)

(
        :connections (
#               :domain (
#                                       :management (
#                                                       :name (127.0.0.1)
#                                                       :log_files (all)
#                                                       :is_local (true)
#                                                       :read_mode (CPMI)
#                                       )
#                                       :log_servers (
#                                                       : (
#                                                               :name (<management IP/Log Server IP>)
#                                                               :sic_name_client  (<DN of the OPSEC Application Object>)
#                                                               :sic_name_server (<DN of the Mangement/Log Server>)
#                                                               :certificate_file (<Certificate File Name>)
#                                                               :read_mode (LEA)
#                                                               :log_files (all)

However the documentation is limited, and I can not be sure if this can be changed and to what value to send on admin audit logs.

Re: Admin only logs in Log Exporter

I was able to get this working by editting targetConfiguration.xml:

Add a exporter target:

cp_log_export add name <name> [domain-server <domain-server>] target-server <target-server> target-port <target-port> protocol <(udp|tcp)> format <(syslog)|(cef)>

            e.g: cp_log_export add name splunk target-server XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX target-port 514 protocol udp format cef

edit /opt/CPsuite-R77/fw1/log_exporter/targets/splunk/targeConfiguration.xml
   edit line:

                  <log_types></log_types><!--all[default]|log|audit/-->
to:
                  <log_types>audit</log_types><!--all[default]|log|audit/-->

Run the two commands:
cp_log_export reexport name splunk
cp_log_export start name splunk

All audit type logs will be sent.
