Sumo Logic exposes the Search Job API for access to resources and log data from third-party scripts and applications. Note the following:
- The Search Job API is available only for Enterprise accounts. See Account Types for more information.
- The legacy Search API has been deprecated. Sumo Logic recommends that you use the Search Job API instead. For legacy information, see the Search API Read Me.
- In the past, Sumo Logic supported using username/password or access key/access ID combinations for authenticating API calls. A change is now required to maintain strict security measures as we introduce new features such as Multi-Account Access. Starting September 28, 2016, Collector registration and API access must use access key/access ID authentication. Username/password will no longer be supported.
