Set up a custom subdomain

This section has instructions for setting up a custom subdomain for the URL you use to access Sumo Logic.

By default, your Sumo Logic account has a "service" subdomain. For example,

If you have multiple Sumo Logic accounts, you may find it useful to configure a custom subdomain for each of your Sumo Logic accounts.

Custom subdomains can help ensure that requests are authenticated to the right account when links are received. Once configured by your account owner, your custom subdomain will be used in the links Sumo generates when you share queries or dashboards, or the links in alerts and other emails you may receive from your account. These subdomain-enabled links will direct the user to the specified account for authentication.

When you use custom subdomains in combination with SAML integrations configured with SP initiated login, your SAML authentication options will be provided within your subdomain-enabled Sumo Logic login page.

Key considerations

Before changing your account subdomain, consider the following:  

  • You are responsible for the subdomain name, including ensuring that use of the  subdomain doesn’t violate the intellectual property rights of another party. Sumo Logic recommends that you use your corporate domain name, or a variation of it, as your Sumo Logic account subdomain.
  • Sumo Logic reserves the right to deactivate, change, or require you to change your account subdomain. 
  • Shared URLs that contain a custom subdomain may no longer work after you change the subdomain. You’ll need to either manually edit the subdomain portion of out-of-date URLs or re-share the content after changing a subdomain name.  
  • Once you update your subdomain to a new value, the previous subdomain will become immediately free for use by another account.
  • After you update your subdomain, Sumo Logic users must re-authenticate using the new subdomain. Sumo Logic suggests you notify your users prior to changing your account subdomain. 
  • Subdomain must be unique across ALL accounts and deployments. You cannot use a subdomain name that is already in use, even if the accounts reside in different deployment regions. If you try to change an account subdomain to a value that is already in use, you’ll be prompted to supply a different name.

Change account subdomain 

  1. Go to Administration > Account.
  2. Click the Change Account Subdomain link at the bottom of the page.
  3. Enter a new subdomain name. The name must be between 4 and 63 characters in length at least four characters in length, and can contain lower case letters, numbers, and dashes only.
  4. Click Change Subdomain Name to update the name.
  5. You will be automatically logged out and redirected to the new subdomain login page.
