Sumo Logic Setup Wizard - June 2015 Release And The Road Ahead

Screen Shot 2015-06-05 at 10.38.49 AM In March we introduced the first version of the brand new Sumo Logic Setup Wizard focused on AWS after an amazing UX journey. This month we introduced a bold new version that works harder for you so you can get started quickly and easily for more types of Sources. It guides you step by step through the process of adding data, from selecting the type of data to configuring your Source, so that you can send your logs to Sumo Logic with minimal work on your end. From the usability to the visual design, every aspect of the setup process has been improved so that setting up data in Sumo Logic is now easier than ever. The wizard also installs a Sumo Logic App to help you analyze and visualize your data, if available. This release includes:
  • The ability to upload local static files without configuring a Collector so that you can start searching right away!
  • A completely redesigned experience for setting up Apache, Windows IIS, MySQL, Nginx, and Varnish Sources.
For more information on this release, please contact Nancy Chu at
But wait, there’s more! Here’s a sneak peek of what is coming in July:
  • Based on popular request, a welcome page that clearly distinguishes between a sandbox environment via static file uploads and configuring Collectors to collect streaming data.
  • A redesigned experience for setting up HTTP Sources, Syslog Sources, Cisco ASA, Palo Alto Network, Linux system logs, Mac system logs, Windows Events, and Windows Performance.

In our upcoming releases, we plan to extend the new user experience to cover cloud Sources like Google Drive and Microsoft Office 365; and by popular demand we plan to incorporate Field Extraction Rules and Templates during data ingest so that important fields come already parsed when users are ready to search! To give feedback on our upcoming releases, please contact Nancy Chu at PS: Remember where we were a few months ago? We’ve come a long way!
