Source configuration

When you create an Webex 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 an Webex source:

  1. In the main Sumo Logic menu, select Manage Data > Collection > Collection.
  2. On the Collection page, click Add Source next to a Hosted Collector.
  3. Search for and select Webex.
  4. Enter a Name for the Source. 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 button 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. Client ID. Enter the Client ID collected from the new Webex Integration app.
  8. Client Secret. Enter the Client Secret collected from the new Webex Integration app.
  9. OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code. Enter the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code collected from the URL.
  10. Organization ID. Enter the Org ID fcollected from the Webex Control Hub PortalURL.
  11. Select Event Categories for Audit Logs. You have the option to Collect all events or Select events, where you can specify the exact event categories you would like to collect from the admin audit logs. You can also select from the pre-defined list or type in event categories.
  12. When you are finished configuring the Source, click Save.
