New: Webhook Alerts for Scheduled Searches - Quickly Enable Integration to Slack, PagerDuty, Datadog, and others!

Hello world! Today, we're excited to announce the new Webhook alert type in Sumo Logic. This new feature will allow you to easily fire off alerts from Sumo Logic Scheduled Searches into a variety of third-party tools such a Slack, PagerDuty, VictorOps, and Datadog. Webhooks can also enable easy integration to your own custom app or unlock a variety of use cases via third-party integration frameworks like IFTTT and Zapier as well. Setting up a new Webhook integration is easy: The first step is to create a new Connection to a third-party system under Manage->Connections in the UI. (Note: this is an Admin function.) In addition to ServiceNow for ticketing, you'll now see a generic Webhook alert type, as well as starter templates for Slack, Datadog, and PagerDuty. Webhook Connections Next, the Connection will allow you to provide a few simple fields to enable the Webhook. After entering the Name and Description and target URL details, the key piece to get right is the JSON Payload. This field allows you to construct a JSON object in the format expected by the target webhook system. The payload can also be parameterized with variables with specific information about the search itself such as Name, Description, Fire time, Number of results, etc. Create Slack Connection That's it! Once the new connection is created, it can be used by Sumo users for alerting within their scheduled searches: Save Search As The new feature is available in your account today! I'd love to hear about any interesting use cases you've enabled, so please feel free to send feedback directly to or via our Support system. Happy integration!
