Hi Experts,

I am trying to export Fortigate firewall logs and QLikview retrieve them. Is there any way that Qlikview can retrieve the Database of the Fortigate to pull out those logs?
Please advise

it really depends on the file format but If it can't do it directly then the wizard should be able to parse the data. Do you have a sample log file I could test with?

Thanks for your reply but I can't provide a sample file cause is company policy. I notice that when I export it manually is a log file which I tried to open in excel and I can see all the information. One of my co-workers made it delimited to be able to sort it out by columns.
Will QLikview able to import that data if I export it somewhere in  a folder?

based on what you said regarding excel, yes it will be able to import it.
If you have odbc access to the database it could access directly

I'm looking through the fortigate manual: http://docs.fortinet.com/uploaded/files/1048/fortigate-loggingreporting-40-mr3.pdf 

Page 17: The SQLite log database

Qlikview will be able to connect to this via an ODBC driver (e.g. http://www.ch-werner.de/sqliteodbc/).  Use the wizard in your QV script to connect to it and you'll see all the tables in the database.
