Connecting Wireshark to UDM-Pro: https://www.reddit.com/r/Ubiquiti/comments/ho19aw/capturing_udm_pro_wan_traffic_directly_into/
To get it working with my UDM-Pro I also had to enable SSH which was disabled by default (you may want to disable it after using Wireshark). To enable it, go to the Advanced section in the Unifi Settings. Not the network settings but the main settings for the UDM-Pro.
