SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

SmartView was added to R80, but was not enabled by default.

In R80.10, it is enabled by default and can be reached by https://management-ip/smartview/

You log in using your SmartConsole credentials.

From here, you can view the logs and see reports without using SmartConsole.

With R80.20.M1 the web log viewer has more features and closes more gaps comparing to SmartLog.

  • Statistics pane
  • More data in the cards
  • Choose the column profiles
  • Right-click a log to filter the query
  • Exporting to Excel lets you select the columns
  • Auto-refresh views

I encourage you all to try out the web log viewer and tell us what you think.

(data is taken off Cloud Demo Mode so don't worry about it, it's not real)

Did enabling Log Indexing sort it out?

Hi - yes it did thanks, It's really fast compared to running and searching logs on a VM (I'm on a mac).

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

A great news.

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

R80.20 brings yet another change by letting you use the web-based log viewer as part of the SmartConsole application. See https://community.checkpoint.com/message/30701-how-to-switch-to-the-new-log-viewer-inside-smartconso... 

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

In an environment where you have separate log servers from Management, is this expected to work by going to the Management server or log server? I have found that it works on the logserver IP only, is this correct?

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

This Web version version is defintely speedy. But I am jealous of the examples above. We are running R80.10 and whilst the logs display and I can query them as expected, all the other panes ie. Top Ten, Timeline say Query failed. (They all work fine in actual SmartConsole.) Is this expected or should I be raising it with TAC as it looks fine in the above example

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

As far as I know it should all work.

You should open a TAC case.

Note that SmartView has been improved pretty significantly in R80.20 as well.

Top statistics, log-cards and profile editor are only integrated to R80.20.

That's why you didn't see them as you are running R80.10.

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

At least I can use some part of the CP admin console natively from my MAC - no need to RDP to a Windows machine.

Maybe one of the good days CP will enable access from a MAC just as we can do with Windows.

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

Hi,

 

i am only able to login with default-admin to the webbased smartview. Every new added smartconsole-account dont work. I can connect to smartconsole but if i try webbased smartview i get "wrong username or password". User "sview" pass "qay123". If i take a wrong password - i get: authentican to server failed". The smartconsole-user has the super-user profile. Any ideas why this not work? I used a R80.20 take 101 with jumbo-ga 47. On our production system with R80.10 is works fine with every smartconsole-account.


Best Regards,
Christian

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

Hi,

 

an here is the solution for the problem: Newly created users cannot log in to R80.20 SmartView WebUI -> sk148794. Hotfix is needed.

 

Symptoms

Starting from R80.20 Jumbo HFA Take 33, newly created users fail to log in into local SmartView WebUI, receiving the "Invalid username and password" error regarding the permission level set to the user.


Cause

New users are created with a new field that does not appear on SmartView.



Best Regards,

Christian

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

We are using dedicated R77.30 MDS log servers where some of the users doesn't have an account created (the local ones).
As far as I understand user management of R80.20 SmartView correctly, there is a need to have created local users in order to have access to the SmartView? In R77.30 MDS, you can simply open SmartView Tracker using SmartDashboard credentials and you are in.

If this is the case, is there a way to limit some users to access SmartView only for specific CMAs ?

Another question - Is there a way to display 24-hour format of time in SmartView? At the moment there is AM/PM format.

Kind regards,

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

In R80.20 MDS environment, if I create a user which can access ONLY specific CMA (no MDS, nor Global), I can access via SmartConsole only this specific CMA.
In case I will access SmartView via browser and log in using this user, I can access also MDS and Global Domains. Not only that one which I have specified during user creation.

Kind regards,

Re: SmartView: Accessing Check Point Logs from Web

Thanks for this post, it just saved me some time.

FYI: License report is failing to generate after upgrade to ongoing Take 74.

Other reports seem to be working, but I have tested a few, not all of them.
