Monitoring Windows Event Log

If you want to monitor your Windows Event Log (Application, Security, System) for a specific ID, create a "WMI Event Log" sensor on the device you want to read the event log from.

Once the sensor is created go into the sensor's settings to configure more detailed settings like Event Source, Event ID, etc.
