Monitoring security alerts and events

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Pega Platform generates security alerts and events for situations such as attempts to hijack a user session. You can review the security alerts and events by viewing their respective logs.

In Pega Platform, there are two different types of logs, one for alerts and one for events, and the distinction between these logs is important.

Alerts identify urgent items that are happening within your application. A Security Administrator must deal with these items as soon as possible. A Security Administrator is responsible for periodically examining and addressing any alerts.

Events general items that are happening within your application. For example, a user changing their password can be a good thing, especially if you have a policy in which they must change their passwords every six months.

To view either the PegaRULES-ALERTSECURITY log or the PegaRULES-SECURITYEVENT log:

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Configure System Operations Logs .

  2. Choose the log you would like to view:

    For Select by
    Security alerts Click the PegaRULES-ALERTSECURITY log for the list of Security Alerts.
    Security events Click the PegaRULES-SECURITYEVENT log for the list of Security Events.

Security alert codes start with SECU. For a list and explanation of security alert codes, see List of performance and security alerts in Pega Platform.
