Sumo Logic

Setup Wizard

The Sumo Logic Setup Wizard allows new users to get started quickly. It guides you step by step to select the data type for your log messages to send data to Sumo Logic automatically. Once the data begins to upload, the Setup Wizard even installs a Sumo Logic App with preconfigured Dashboards that allows you to analyze your data. The Setup Wizard also includes detailed instructions to help you along each step of the configuration.

Before you can begin, you must sign up for a Sumo Logic account and activate it.

Next, select one of two Setup Wizard experiences:

  • Upload Files. Upload a static local file to try Sumo Logic’s features without configuring a Source or Collector.
  • Set Up Streaming Data. Set up live log data by configuring a Source and Collector for your data type.

Within the Sumo Logic Web Application, you can access the Setup Wizard to configure additional Collectors and Sources. Select Manage > Collection > Collection (Manage > Collection in the classic UI) and click the Setup Wizard link.
