Sumo Logic

Setup Wizard

The Sumo Logic Setup Wizard allows you to get started quickly. It guides you step-by-step to select the data type for your log messages to send data to Sumo Logic automatically. Once the data begins to upload, the Setup Wizard installs a Sumo Logic App with pre-configured Dashboards that allow you to analyze your data. The Setup Wizard also provides detailed instructions to help you with each step of the configuration.

Before you begin, sign up for a Sumo Logic account and activate it.


Next, select one of two Setup Wizard experiences:

  • Upload Files. Upload a static local file to try Sumo Logic’s features without configuring a Source or Collector.
  • Set Up Streaming Data. Set up live log data by configuring a Source and Collector for your data type.

In the Sumo web app, you can access the Setup Wizard to configure additional Collectors and Sources. Select Manage Data > Collection > Collection and click the Setup Wizard link.


Click Exit Setup Wizard to exit.
