This is what I used you can see if it helps resolve your issue. Again I don't know if this will work for you but u can try it in a test environment and see if it helps

You want to look at the rules you generate to make sure they make sense.
 Most likely getting Rsyslog5 to work with SELInux would be to label it
with syslogd_exec_t and then looking at the avc's generated.
If it has special /var/run or /var/log directories you might have to
label these also.
