Recent Searches

When you run a search in Sumo Logic, that search and its results are saved automatically in the Library under the Recent tab. This is useful in case you lose your browser session, accidentally close the Search tab, log out, or just want to refer to a search you performed recently.

Recent Searches that are still running are paused after 15 minutes. If not reopened or restarted, the search is deleted after three hours.

In the Library, the Recent Searches folder (under the Recent tab) lists all currently running searches and any searches performed over the last three hours. In the list, you can view the NameStatusElapsed Time, and monitor the Progress of each search. Searches and Pinned Searches are also marked with icons.
