The Scope supports the option to assign ingest budgets to your log data by either:

  • A Field that is enabled in the Fields table.
  • One of the following built-in metadata fields: _collector, _source, _sourceCategory, _sourceHost, or _sourceName.

The value supports a single wildcard, such as _sourceCategory=prod*payment.

For example, a Scope expression like _sourceCategory=/dev/catalog/* implies that all incoming logs ingested into Sumo Logic with a matching _sourceCategory will fall under the scope of the given budget.
