Lab 4: Install an App and View Data

As an Administrator, there are two applications that will provide you information about what is going on with in your Sumo Logic environment, the Audit app and the Data Volume app. 

The Sumo Logic Audit App uses Sumo Logic audit index events to present information about account management activities, user activities, and management of Library content (searches, dashboards/reports, and folders) in your Sumo Logic account. The app uses predefined searches and Dashboards that provide visibility into your environment.

Before you can install the Sumo Logic Audit App, an administrator must enable the Sumo Auditing. For more information, see Enable and Manage the Audit Index.

The Data Volume allows you to view at a glance your account's data usage volume by category, collector, source name, and hosts. The app uses predefined searches and a Dashboard that provide visibility into your environment for real-time analysis of overall usage.

Before you can use the Data Volume app, an administrator must first enable the feature. For more information, see Enable and Manage the Data Volume Index.

The dialog box that opens includes options to choose the folder where you install the app.  In most apps you are prompted to select a category for your data source, but in this case the app knows the location of the data source. 

Let's keep the folder as the default (Personal). You have the ability to alter the name of App, but let's name it Audit###.  The ### is account number you are logged in as.  For example is you logged in as Training+User007@sumologic.com, then your file name would be Audit007

Click Add to Library and the app will be installed to your library.
