You can create a log sink using either the Manage Log/Audit Sinks task (normal method) or by right-clicking a service, folder, or policy (shortcut method).
To create a log sink (normal method)
:
The "normal" method creates a new log sink with all settings empty.
  1. In the Policy Manager, select
    [Tasks] > Logging and Auditing > Manage Log/Audit Sinks
    from the Main Menu (on the browser client, from the
    Manage
    menu). The Manage Log Sinks dialog appears.
  2. Click [
    Create
    ].
  3. Complete the properties for the log sink. For more information, see Log Sink Properties.
To create a log sink (shortcut method)
:
The "shortcut" method lets you quickly create a new log sink without needing to invoke the Manage Log/Audit Sinks task. It creates a new log sink prepopulated with filter information based on the item that was right-clicked.
  1. In the services and policies list, right-click a service, folder, or policy.
  2. Select
    Create Log Sink
    from the context menu. This creates a new log sink with the
    Name
    ,
    Descriptio
    n, and
    Filters
    fields prepopulated with information based on the service, folder, or policy.
  3. Complete the remaining Log Sink Properties as required.
