Sumo Logic

Use a URL to Run a Search

You can create a custom URL to launch a search in Sumo Logic.



  • <endpoint> is the URL of your Sumo Logic account endpoint. See Sumo Logic Endpoints and Firewall Security for the endpoint URLs.  
  • <start> is the start of your query time range, the value can be either:
  • <end> is the end of your query time range, the value can be either:
  • <urlEncodedQuery> is the text of your search query in URL encoded format.


Let’s create a URL for the following search query:

test query | count by _source

Using a relative time range expression of -10w to -1w.

The custom URL that launches this search query in the Sumo Logic Search page would be similar to the following. The exact URL would depend on your Sumo Logic account endpoint, as listed in Sumo Logic Endpoints and Firewall Security,-1w@test%20query%20%7C%20count%20by%20_source

Using milliseconds as this time range:

Feb 26 2014 13:58:11 to Feb 26 2014 13:58:21 GMT-0800 (PST),1393451901051@test%20query%20%7C%20count%20by%20_source
