Contains the configuration endpoints for managing SPS.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/management
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Element Type Description
key string Top level element, contains the ID of the endpoint.
body Top level element (string) Contains the syslog server configuration settings.
certificates Top level item Contains the certificates of the client (SPS), and the certificate of the CA.
ca string

The CA certificate of the Certificate Authority. Configure this option if the value of the tls_enabled element is set to true.

client string

Configure this option if the value of the tls_enabled element is set to true, and the syslog server requires mutual authentication. Otherwise, set its value to null.

References the identifier of the client's (SPS's) X.509 certificate. You can configure certificates at the /api/configuration/x509/ endpoint.

To modify or add an X.509 certificate, use the value of the returned key as the value of the x509_identity element, and remove any child elements (including the key).

include_node_id boolean

Set to true to display separate hostnames for syslog messages sent by the nodes of a SPS HA cluster.

The node ID included in the hostname filed of the syslog message is the MAC address of the node's HA interface. Messages of the core firmware are always sent by the master node.

receivers Top level list Contains the addresses of the syslog servers.
server_key_check string

Configures validating the syslog server's certificate with the CA. The following values are possible:

  • optional-trusted

    If the server sends a certificate, SPS checks if it is valid (not expired) and that the Common Name of the certificate contains the domain name or the IP address of the server. If these checks fail, SPS rejects the connection. However, SPS accepts the connection if the server does not send a certificate.

  • optional-untrusted

    SPS accepts any certificate shown by the server.

  • required-trusted

    SPS verifies the certificate shown by the server.

  • required-untrusted

    SPS requests a certificate from the server, and rejects the connection if no certificate is received, if the certificate is not valid (expired), or if the Common Name of the certificate does not contain the domain name or the IP address of the server.

Elements of receivers Type Description
address Top level item Contains the address of the syslog server.
selection string

Defines the address type (IP or domain name). Possible values are:

  • fqdn

    The syslog server address is provided as a fully qualified domain name.

  • ip

    The syslog server address is provided as an IP address.

value string The address of the syslog server.
port int The port of the syslog server.
protocol Top level item Contains the syslog protocol settings.
ip_protocol string

Configures the IP protocol. The following options are available:

  • tcp

    TCP protocol.

  • udp

    UDP protocol.

protocol_type string

Configures the syslog protocol. The following options are available:

  • legacy-bsd

    BSD-syslog protocol.

  • syslog

    IETF-syslog protocol.

tls_enabled string

Set to true to enable TLS encryption.

If TLS is enabled, the value of the ca and client elements cannot be null.

Examples:

Default settings: no external syslog servers.

{
  "certificates": {
    "ca": null,
    "client": null
  },
  "include_node_id": true,
  "receivers": [],
  "server_key_check": "optional-untrusted"
}
Upload CA certificates

SPS uses only the key part of the CA certificate.

You can choose to upload a single certificate or a certificate chain.

To use a certificate with the SPS API, remove all data, and substitute line breaks with \n. The same is true for a certificate chain: copy individual certificates one after the other, and substitute line breaks with \n.

The following is an example certificate, as used on the SPS web interface:
