Datapower syslog - GROK filter for Logstash

Datapower has delimeters in syslog messages, but when certain data is missing from the syslog, delimiters are also missing from the message so it is hard to figure out, what part is missing.


1. missing: DomainSub, Direction, ClientIP, GlobalTID

- Syslog:

<15>2021-08-20T13:56:31.831414+02:00 \\DP-TES\Domain1 [0x80e003ca][network][debug] xmlmgr(default): trans(4806034): Attempting TCP connect to ClientIP.

- Pattern:

%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:Time} \\\\%{GREEDYDATA:Device}\\%{GREEDYDATA:Domain} \[%{GREEDYDATA:MessageCode}\]\[%{GREEDYDATA:Category}\]\[%{GREEDYDATA:Severity}\] %{GREEDYDATA:ObjectType}\(%{GREEDYDATA:ObjectName}\): trans\(%{INT:TransactionID}\): %{GREEDYDATA:Message}

2. missing: Direction

- Syslog:

<14>2021-08-25T15:30:04.617934+02:00 \\\DP-TES\Domain1 [Domain1][0x80e0015b][network][info] mpgw(MPGW-Test): trans(16644771)[] gtid(8b94ee1a612645dc00fdfaa3): HTTP response code 200 for 'https://CalloutDestination:915/Service1'

- Pattern:

%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:Time} \\\\%{GREEDYDATA:Device}\\%{GREEDYDATA:Domain} \[%{GREEDYDATA:DomainSub}\]\[%{GREEDYDATA:MessageCode}\]\[%{GREEDYDATA:Category}\]\[%{GREEDYDATA:Severity}\] %{GREEDYDATA:ObjectType}\(%{GREEDYDATA:ObjectName}\): trans\(%{INT:TransactionID}\)\[%{GREEDYDATA:ClientIP}\] gtid\(%{GREEDYDATA:GlobalTID}\): %{GREEDYDATA:Message}

    my final filters (I couldn't join these two, so i left them seperate):

    firstFilter ^(<%{INT:PRIORITY}>)?%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:Time} \\\\%{GREEDYDATA:Device}\\%{GREEDYDATA:Domain} (\[%{USERNAME:DomainSub}\])?\[(%{BASE16NUM:MessageCode})?\]\[%{USERNAME:Category}\]\[%{LOGLEVEL:Severity}\]( %{DATA:ObjectType}\(%{DATA:ObjectName}\):)? (trans\(%{INT:TransactionID}\))?(\[%{WORD:Direction}\])?(\[%{IP:ClientIP}\])?( gtid\(%{BASE16NUM:GlobalTID}\))?: %{GREEDYDATA:Message}

    secondFilter ^(<%{INT:PRIORITY}>)?%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:Time} \\\\%{GREEDYDATA:Device}\\%{GREEDYDATA:Domain} (\[%{USERNAME:DomainSub}\])?\[(%{BASE16NUM:MessageCode})?\]\[%{USERNAME:Category}\]\[%{LOGLEVEL:Severity}\]( %{DATA:ObjectType}\(%{DATA:ObjectName}\):)? (trans\(%{INT:TransactionID}\))?(\[%{WORD:Direction}\])?(\[%{IP:ClientIP}\])?( gtid\(%{BASE16NUM:GlobalTID}\))?%{GREEDYDATA:Message}

    That is all for now, I will focus on other tasks.

    It seems this task is doable. I tried merging all the filters into one, so far I have come the pattern below - it still needs a few corrections, but it mostly works fine. "\\Device\Domain" format is needed as Local Identifier in DP Log target for this to work):

    %{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:Time} \\\\%{GREEDYDATA:Device}\\%{GREEDYDATA:Domain} (\[%{GREEDYDATA:DomainSub}\])?\[%{GREEDYDATA:MessageCode}\]\[%{GREEDYDATA:Category}\]\[%{GREEDYDATA:Severity}\]( %{GREEDYDATA:ObjectType}\(%{GREEDYDATA:ObjectName}\):)? trans\(%{INT:TransactionID}\)(\[%{WORD:Direction}\])?(\[%{GREEDYDATA:ClientIP}\])?( gtid\(%{GREEDYDATA:GlobalTID}\))?: %{GREEDYDATA:Message}

    To be continued...
