Filtering event 4624 by logon type

I'm looking to find a way to filter event 4624 by logon type.  I want to only get logon type 2 and logon type 10.  Since the logon type is written in the message of the event I can't think of a way to filter on it.  The only way I've found is to dump all the 4624's to a text file via script and just search for type 2 and 10.  But I'd like to automate this if possible.

In event viewer

under custom views.
Right click new view
Create Custom view

specify the even id and other details... this wll create the xml automatically
then under XML tab.. select check box edit query manually.. and change as per your requirement... below is just an example...you may have to modify for type of event (System,Security, Application.) if the line is comming multiple times...


<Select Path="S">*[System[(Level=2 or Level=10) and (EventID=4624)]]

That didn't work but you got me in the right direction!  I looked in the events metadata to figure out what to query.  Here's what I used:

<Select Path="Security">*[System[(EventID=4624)]] and *[EventData[Data[@Name='LogonType'] and (Data=2 or Data=10)]]</Select>

Open in new window


Thank you!
