You can now optionally apply a Muting Schedule to your alert group. This saves time by allowing you to select an alert group (a bundled set of alerts) to associate with your Muting Schedule rather than selecting individual monitors. Learn more.

We're excited to announce the release of our new Azure Event Hubs source for logs collection. This integration with Azure Event Hubs provides you with a fully managed, scalable, and low latency solution to stream high-volume logs from Azure to Sumo Logic. Learn more.

We're excited to introduce the ability to reference Sumo Logic system indexes with an alias. With this update, you can now use an alias to point to one or more system indexes in the source expression of your search queries.

How it works

With index aliasing, you can use an alias to point to one or more system indexes, such as sumologic_default in the source expression of your query. Both the operator part and results of your query will consist of actual index names.

In addition to sumologic_default, we have several other Sumo Logic-defined system indexes. As a shortcut, rather than prefacing sumologic_ when referencing system indexes in a search, you can alias these indexes by typing an underscore at the beginning. For example, sumologic_default and _default will return the same results.

NOTE: This feature is currently live in all deployments except us2 and prod. It will be rolled out to those deployments by April 2.

We are excited to announce a new set of changes to enhance the readability within the dashboard panels. With these updates, you'll have more control over time ranges, making it easier to investigate specific periods of interest and analyze data effectively. Here's what's included in this update:

  • Crosshair. When you hover over a time series panel, Sumo Logic now displays a crosshair line with the time series data. If other time series panels are also configured with an overlapping time range, then when you hover over one time panel, a crosshair will be displayed on the other panels as well. Learn more.

  • Time Syncing. Using panel zoom feature you can now modify the time range of the dashboard to zoom in for granular details. This time range is considered as a temporary time range and all the other panels in the dashboard will be zoomed in for the selected time range. Learn more.

We're excited to include the Estimate scan details for a query with pay-per-search data, which allows you to get insights into the amount of data scanned to run the query. Also, to help mitigate the cost, you can view the scan estimates while you create/modify monitors and scheduled searches. Learn more.

More information

We're happy to announce two new monitoring features that allow you to generate alerts that notify you of suspicious behavior and automatically run playbooks to address it.

Anomaly detection

You can now use the Anomaly detection method when you create a monitor. This method applies machine learning techniques to detect anomalies and identify suspicious patterns. It establishes baselines for normal behavior so you receive alerts when deviations or unusual activities are encountered.

Learn more.

Automated playbooks

An automated playbook is a predefined set of actions and conditional statements that run in an automated workflow to respond to an event. For example, suppose that a monitor detects suspicious behavior that could indicate a security problem. When the monitor sends the alert, it could also run an automated playbook to respond to the event.

We're excited to announce the availability of the Closed Beta version of our updated Sumo Logic User Interface (UI). This release brings several enhancements aimed at improving your overall experience:

  • Unified Navigation. Seamlessly access all Observability features (e.g., Alerts, Log Search, APM, Metrics) alongside Security features (e.g., Cloud SIEM, Cloud SOAR) from a single, unified left-navigation menu. This is a significant improvement over our legacy Classic UI, where users had to navigate away from Sumo Logic when using Cloud SIEM or SOAR.
  • Streamlined Administration. Administrative functions, Data Configuration, Help, and User Preferences have been relocated to the top toolbar menu for simplified access.
  • Enhanced Browsing Experience. Now, instead of in-app tabs, you can utilize native browser tabs for a more familiar browsing experience, complete with session history, the back button, favorites, and other native browser capabilities.
  • Improved Performance. With a simplified UI, you'll experience accelerated performance, enhanced usability, and a consistently smooth browsing experience, empowering you to troubleshoot incidents faster. We've achieved significant improvements in two primary metrics:
    • First Contentful Paint (FCP). ~90% improvement (synthetic), 75% improvement (RUM).
    • Time to Interactivity (TTI). ~27% improvement (synthetic), 50% improvement (RUM).
  • Stateful URLs. URLs now reflect real-time changes. Any modifications you make within the UI are instantly reflected in the URL parameters, ensuring effortless sharing of the most up-to-date content with collaborators.

To explore these improvements, reach out to your Sumo Logic sales representative for access to the Closed Beta. We look forward to your feedback as we continue to refine our UI.

We're excited to announce an update for the Active Directory JSON - OpenTelemetry application to enhance efficiency and data collection. We are updating the sumo.datasource value from Active Directory to Windows. This change addresses the double data ingestion issue that occurs for customers who have installed both Active Directory and Windows apps and set up separate OpenTelemetry collections for each.


Data collected before the upgrade will not be visible in the Active Directory application.

If you have only the Active Directory JSON - OpenTelemetry app installed and decided to upgrade it, you will need to update your collection configuration according to the instructions below.

  1. Open the configuration file located in C:\ProgramData\Sumo Logic\OpenTelemetry Collector\config\conf.d.
  2. Update the following attributes:
    • key: sumo.datasource
    • value: windows
    • action: insert
  3. Restart the collector by using the following Powershell command Restart-Service -Name OtelcolSumo.

If you have both the Windows - OpenTelemetry and Active Directory JSON - OpenTelemetry apps installed, you should remove the Active Directory OTEL YAML configuration from your machine to prevent double data ingestion. When upgrading the Active Directory app, there's no need to set up a new collection.

No changes are required if you only have Windows - OpenTelemetry installed.
