Welcome to the new Sumo Logic UI! We've updated the UI to improve your Sumo Logic experience.
- Introducing tabs
- Updated navigation
If you're a current Sumo Logic user, you'll find that the navigation and some menu items have changed, but most of your working experience will be just as it was before. During the rollout period, you can use the existing UI if you want, but we encourage you to start right away with the new UI. That way you'll get used to the changes and can start realizing the benefits.
- To try the new UI, click Try the New UI in the upper right corner of your screen.
- To switch back to the old UI, click your name in the left nav and select Back to Classic UI.
Getting around the new UI
Use the left nav
The menu that used to be on the top of of the UI is now on the left side (we call it the 'left nav').
Click the arrow to minimize the left nav and expand the view of the working area of the UI.
Click the Menu icon to expand the left nav.
Work with tabs
The new UI has a flexible tab structure that allows you to keep multiple pages open and improves navigation.
When you select a page from the left nav, the page opens in a new tab. All the tabs are shown at the top of the UI.
Each of these selections opens a new tab.
- Saved search or dashboard selected from the left nav or library
- New log search, metrics visualization or Live Tail session
- App catalog from the left nav
- Manage pages in the left nav
- Account page
Up to 50 tabs can be open at the same time.
To rename a tab, double-click the tab name, enter a new name, and press Return.
You can close any tab by hovering over the tab and clicking the X icon.
For search, metrics and Live Tail tabs, additional options to close tabs are available. Hover over the tab, click the dotted icon, and select Close Other Tabs or Close All Tabs.
- Close other tabs
- Close all tabs
The tabs even stay open when you sign out and sign back in again, so you can start where you left off.
Use the left and right facing arrows to move back and forth among the tabs.
