    • NAME – Specify a name for the Cloud Collector instance.

    • SERVICE PRINCIPAL – Enter the value for the service principal that you obtained while completing the prerequisites.

    • SECRET – Enter the value for the secret that you obtained while completing the prerequisites.

    • INGEST FROM – Select the time and date from when the cloud collector must start ingesting events and exclude events before the given date. If you leave this field blank and do not provide a threshold, all logs are ingested.

  7. (Optional) SITE – Select an existing site or to create a new site with a unique ID, click manage your sites. Adding a site name helps you to ensure efficient management of environments with overlapping IP addresses.

    By entering a site name, you associate the logs with a specific independent site. A sitename metadata field is automatically added to all the events that are going to be ingested via this collector. For more information about Site Management, see Define a Unique Site Name.

  8. (Optional) TIMEZONE – Select a time zone applicable to you for accurate detections and event monitoring.

    By entering a time zone, you override the default log time zone. A timezone metadata field is automatically added to all the events that are going to be ingested via this collector.
