The Airtable App allows you to:

  • Keep track of user activity within your Airtable account in real-time.
  • Analyze user actions, identify failed executions, and track trends over time.
  • View a summary of audit logs in table format, enabling you to identify anomalous behavior and potential security threats.
  • Create customized dashboards to visualize important metrics and track key performance indicators.

The Airtable App also offers a pre-built dashboard that enables you to start monitoring your Airtable audit logs right away. The Airtable App for Sumo Logic is especially useful for organizations that must comply with regulatory requirements or maintain a high level of security. With the ability to monitor user activity and track changes in real time, you can quickly identify potential issues and respond to security incidents as they occur.

Log type

The Sumo Logic app for Airtable consumes Audit logs from your Airtable Enterprise account. Audit Logs track user activity and record changes made to the data in the system.

To understand how to access detailed records of changes made to the Airtable Enterprise account, refer to the Airtable Audit logs documentation. This documentation provides information on the different types of logs that are available, how to access them, and what information they contain.

Installing the Airtable app

Before you begin, collect logs from Airtable API and ingest them into Sumo Logic. Refer to the Airtable API Cloud-to-Cloud Integration to create the source and use the same source category while installing the app.

To install the app, do the following:

  1. Select App Catalog.
  2. In the Search Apps field, search for and then select your app.
    Optionally, you can scroll down to preview the dashboards included with the app.
  3. To install the app, click Install App.
  4. Click Next in the Setup Data section.
  5. In the Configure section of the respective app, complete the following fields.
    1. Key. Select either of these options for the data source.
      • Choose Source Category, and select a source category from the list for Default Value.
      • Choose Custom, and enter a custom metadata field. Insert its value in Default Value.
  6. Click Next. You will be redirected to the Preview & Done section.

Your app will be installed in the Installed Apps folder and dashboard panels will start to fill automatically.

Each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results will not immediately be available, updating with full graphs and charts over time.

Viewing Airtable dashboards​

All dashboards have a set of filters that you can apply to the entire dashboard. Use these filters to drill down and examine the data to a granular level.

  • You can change the time range for a dashboard or panel by selecting a predefined interval from a drop-down list, choosing a recently used time range, or specifying custom dates and times. Learn more.
  • You can use template variables to drill down and examine the data on a granular level. For more information, see Filter with template variables.
  • Most Next-Gen apps allow you to provide the scope at the installation time and are comprised of a key (_sourceCategory by default) and a default value for this key. Based on your input, the app dashboards will be parameterized with a dashboard variable, allowing you to change the dataset queried by all panels. This eliminates the need to create multiple copies of the same dashboard with different queries.
