Link to entities in Explore

You can create a URL to a specific entity in Explore.


https://<endpoint>/ui/#/explore/[@<start>,<end>]@<entity>=<entityValue>[@<entity2>=<entityValue2>@<entity3>=<entityValue3> ...]

  • <endpoint> is your Sumo Logic service endpoint. See Sumo Logic Endpoints and Firewall Security for the endpoint URLs.
  • <entity> is the type of entity you want to explore, such as cluster, deployment, service, node, account, region, namespace, or pod.
  • <entityValue> is the value of the entity to explore.

Optional arguments:

  • <start> is the start of your dashboard time range in milliseconds since epoch.
  • <end> is the end of your dashboard time range in milliseconds since epoch.


Let’s create a URL to open Explore on the primary-eks cluster, kube-system namespace, and metrics-server service. 

The custom URL that launches this log query in the Sumo Logic Search page would be similar to the following. The exact URL would depend on your Sumo Logic account endpoint, as listed in Sumo Logic Endpoints and Firewall Security

Using milliseconds as this time range:
