The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud provides unified, easy-to-manage data protection for all workloads. Druva’s cyber resilience solutions keep backup data safe, help to prepare for cyber attacks, and automate the process of recovering data.

The Druva Cyber Resilience source provides the ability to fetch realize events generated within the Druva Realize product using the Druva Realize Events API and sends it to Sumo Logic. Realize events API helps you to collect unusual data activity events, access events, and login events generated in Druva Cyber Resilience product.

Data Sources

The Druva Cyber Resilience Source consumes all the realize events using the Druva Realize Events API and sends it to Sumo Logic.

Set up and Configuration

In this configuration, you will collect the Base URL from the Druva platform to authorize and authenticate the realize events using Druva Realize Events API. Follow the below steps to get the Base URL for user configuration.

  1. Sign in to the Druva console.
  2. Go to the Administration menu and click Druva Cloud Settings option.
  3. Select the API Credentials option.
  4. In the API Credentials page, copy and save the API Endpoint URL.


A Druva Cyber Resilience Source tracks errors, reports its health, and start-up progress. You’re informed, in real-time, if the source is having trouble connecting, if there's an error requiring user action, or if it is healthy and collecting by utilizing Health Events.

A Druva Cyber Resilience Source goes through the following states when created:

  1. Pending. Once the Source is submitted, it is validated, stored, and placed in a Pending state.
  2. Started. A collection task is created on the Hosted Collector.
  3. Initialized. The task configuration is complete in Sumo Logic.
  4. Authenticated. The Source is successfully authenticated with Druva Cyber Resilience.
  5. Collecting. The Source is actively collecting data from Druva Cyber Resilience.

If the Source has any issues during any one of these states, it is placed in an Error state.

When you delete the Source, it is placed in a Stopping state. When it has successfully stopped, it is deleted from your Hosted Collector.

On the Collection page, the Health and Status for Sources is displayed. Use Health Events to investigate issues with collection. You can click the text in the Health column, such as Error, to open the issue in Health Events to investigate.

Create Druva Cyber Resilience Source

When you create a Druva Cyber Resilience Source, you add it to a Hosted Collector. Before creating the Source, identify the Hosted Collector you want to use or create a new Hosted Collector. For instructions, see Configure a Hosted Collector.

To configure a Druva Cyber Resilience Source:

  1. In Sumo Logic, select Manage Data > Collection > Collection
  2. On the Collectors page, click Add Source next to a Hosted Collector.
  3. Select Druva Cyber Resilience icon.
  4. Enter a Name to display for the Source in the Sumo Logic web application. The description is optional.
  5. (Optional) For Source Category, enter any string to tag the output collected from the Source. Category metadata is stored in a searchable field called _sourceCategory.
  6. (Optional) Fields. Click the +Add to define the fields you want to associate. Each field needs a name (key) and value.
    • green check circle.png A green circle with a check mark is shown when the field exists in the Fields table schema.
    • orange exclamation point.png An orange triangle with an exclamation point is shown when the field doesn't exist in the Fields table schema. In this case, an option to automatically add the nonexistent fields to the Fields table schema is provided. If a field is sent to Sumo Logic that does not exist in the Fields schema it is ignored, known as dropped.
  7. API Endpoint URL. Enter the API Endpoint URL collected from the Druva Cyber Resilience platform.
  8. Client ID. Enter your Client ID. To get Client ID, follow the instructions from Create and Manage Druva API Credentials.
  9. Secret Key. Enter your Secret Key. To get Secret Key, follow the instructions from Create and Manage Druva API Credentials.
  10. When you are finished configuring the Source, click Save.

Error types

When Sumo Logic detects an issue, it is tracked by Health Events. The following table shows three possible error types. It tells the reason for the error, if the source attempts to retry, and the name of the event log in the Health Event Index.

TypeReasonRetriesRetry BehaviorHealth Event Name
ThirdPartyConfigNormally due to an invalid configuration. You'll need to review your Source configuration and make an update.No retries are attempted until the Source is updated.Not applicableThirdPartyConfigError
ThirdPartyGenericNormally due to an error communicating with the third-party service APIs.YesThe Source will retry indefinitely.ThirdPartyGenericError
