Downloaded Logs in CSV / Excel Import Friendly

Hi All, 

 

Looking for ways to export logs from a Forti200D (5.6.8) into .csv format / easily readable by excel. 

Currently, during import into excel (using 'space' as delimiter), some fields will run. 

Is there ways to generate the logs with " " / custom delimiter instead? 

 

Thank you.

A two-step option is to install Splunk and the Fortinet Fortigate App, and send logs there.  From within Splunk, you can easily download data to a CSV, but you might find that what you needed was Splunk anyway.
