Now that you have set up ingested and collected findings for AWS Security Hub, you can install the Sumo Logic App for AWS Security Hub and use the preconfigured searches and Dashboards that provide insight into your data. 

To install the Sumo Logic App for AWS Security Hub, do the following:

Locate and install the app you need from the App Catalog. If you want to see a preview of the dashboards included with the app before installing, click Preview Dashboards.

  1. From the App Catalog, search for and select the app. 
  2. Select the version of the service you're using and click Add to Library.
  1. To install the app, complete the following fields.

    1. App Name. You can retain the existing name, or enter a name of your choice for the app.

    2. Data Source. Select either of these options for the data source.

      • Choose Source Category, and select a source category from the list.

      • Choose Enter a Custom Data Filter, and enter a custom source category beginning with an underscore. Example: (_sourceCategory=MyCategory).
