We currently have a 3-party SIMS and Snort/tipppoint IDS in the network. Testing the Cisco module to replace these IDS systems, questions is how to config the Cisco module to forward events to the SIMS. thx

You didn't mention what SIM you're using. The AIP-SSM, IDSM and 4200 series sensors report events using SDEE. The sensor runs as the host and the SIM as a client. If your SIM supports Cisco's implementation, put your SIM's IP address in the allowed hosts on the AIP-SSM and give your SIM the sensor's readonly account credentials.

The SIM is Qradar and it supports Cisco devices, is there a way to send test log or traffic to the SIM after configuring?

Enable signature 2004 (ICMP Echo Request) and ping past the sensor. That should generate an alert. You can confirm on the sensor CLI with the "show event alert past 01:00" to see the alerts in the past hour.
