Add time frame selector to log viewer pages 7.2.1

Logs can be filtered by date and time in the Log & Report > System Events and Security Events pages. The log viewer can be filtered with a custom range or with specific time frames.

The time frame available is dependent on the source:

  • Logs sourced from FortiAnalyzer, FortiGate Cloud, and FortiAnalyzer Cloud have the same time frame options as FortiView (5 minutes, 1 hour, 24 hours, or 7 days).

  • Logs sourced from the Disk have the time frame options of 5 minutes, 1 hour, 24 hours, 7 days, or None.

  • Logs source from Memory do not have time frame filters.

A custom time frame can be applied using the Date/Time filter. If the Date/Time filter is applied, the time frame will be disabled and set to custom.

To set a custom time frame range:
  1. Go to Log & Report > Security Events.

  2. Select the Logs tab.

  3. Select the Date/Time filter. The Filter dialog is displayed.

  4. Select Range.

  5. Click the From calendar icon and select a date.

  6. Enter a time in the From field using the form HH:MM:SS.

  7. Click the To calendar icon and select a date.

  8. Enter a time in the To time using the form HH:MM:SS.

  9. Click Apply. The logs that match the set time frame are displayed and the time frame is set to custom.

Note

If a custom time frame filter is set, a new time frame cannot be selected until the first filter is removed. Click the X in the search bar or select Remove in the Filter dialog to remove the filter.
