Collecting Logs

This section has instructions for collecting logs for the Sumo App for Teams.

Collection process overview

To collect logs for Microsoft Teams, please configure an Office 365 Audit Source. The Teams logs will be present in the “Office 365 General Logs” context. Note, that if you are already collecting logs for Office 365, you can simply make note of the source category configured for the aforementioned context.

Installing the Microsoft Teams App

This section shows you how to install the Sumo Logic App for Microsoft Teams.

To install the app:

  1. From the Sumo Logic nav, select App Catalog.
  2. Search for and select your app.
  3. (Optional) To see a preview of the dashboards included with the app, scroll down to the Dashboard Preview section.
  4. If the app has multiple versions - not all apps do - select the version of the service you're using, then click Add Integration.
  5. On the next configuration page, under Select Data Source for your App, complete the following fields:
    • Data Source. Select one of the following options:
      • Choose Source Category and select a source category from the list; or
      • Choose Enter a Custom Data Filter, and enter a custom source category beginning with an underscore. For example, _sourceCategory=MyCategory.
    • Folder Name. You can retain the existing name or enter a custom name of your choice for the app.
    • All Folders (optional). Default location is the Personal folder in your Library. If desired, you can choose a different location and/or click New Folder to add it to a new folder.
  6. Click Next.
  7. You'll see a dialog confirming that the app was installed successfully.

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.

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 be available immediately, but within 20 minutes, you'll see full graphs and maps.
