Install the Log Analysis QuickStart App

The Library allows an Admin to install the QuickStart App. Your organization will be up and running with the app in just a few minutes.


To install the app:

  1. In the Library, click the Apps tab.
  2. Click Log Analysis QuickStart.
  3. Click Install.


  1. In the Install Application dialog box, do one of the following for Data Source Mapping
    • Select from _sourceCategory values. Choose an existing _sourceCategory present in your account used for your Sumo Logic data.
      Important: If you do not select the correct _sourceCategory, data will not be loaded into the app. If you don't know which _sourceCategory to select, ask the administrator who configured the Source.
    • Custom data filter. To set up a specific data filter, type the keyword(s) you'd like to use to filter the data.
  2. For Folder, choose either the Personal folder or a subfolder in the Personal folder. (Click the blue + to create a new subfolder).
  3. Click Install.
  4. When the Confirm dialog displays, click Go to navigate to the installed app.

After the Install

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder. From here, you can publish it to share it with your organization.

Panels will start and fill automatically. It's important to note that each Panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the Panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but with a bit of time, you'll see full graphs and maps.
