Install the Sumo Logic App
Now that you have set up collection for Active Directory, install the Sumo Logic App for Active Directory to use the pre-configured searches and dashboards that provide visibility into your environment for real-time analysis of overall usage.
To install the app:
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.
- From the App Catalog, search for and select the app.
- To install the app, click Add to Library and complete the following fields.
- App Name. You can retain the existing name, or enter a name of your choice for the app.
- Data Source. Select Enter a Custom Data Filter and enter a filter that references the Windows Event Logs source and the script sources" (configured as described in Collect Active Directory Log Files). For example:
(_sourceCategory=OS/Windows OR _sourcecategory=*adscripts*).
- Advanced. Select the Location in Library (the default is the Personal folder in the library), or click New Folder to add a new folder.
- Click Add to Library.
Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder, or other folder that you specified. From here, you can share it with your organization. See Welcome to the New Library for information on working with the library in the new UI.
Panels will start to 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.
