Changing the BIG-IP Default Syslog-NG Facilities

DevCentral community member geffr had a problem. The BIG-IP Application Security Manager module logs to the local3 facility but he needs to send them to the local7 facility on a remote server. Before giving up entirely, he posted to this thread in the Monitoring & Management group forum, where user nitass helped him jump through the syslog-ng hoops (click here for tips & tricks on syslog-ng) to the working solution posted below. It’s pretty straight forward. Define a template, a filter, and a destination, and then put the pieces together in a log statement.
