Sumo Logic integration

You can configure the Sumo Logic webhook to post notifications to the Moogsoft Cloud CYOI endpoint when events of interest occur.

Before you begin

This integration was validated with Sumo Logic on 6 June 2021.

Before you start to set up your integration, make sure:

  • You have an active Sumo Logic account.

  • You have the necessary permissions to create alerts and notifications channels in Sumo Logic.

  • Sumo Logic can make requests to external endpoints over port 443. This is the default.

  • You have created an API key and have access to a copy of it.

Configure the integration in Moogsoft Cloud

To configure the integration:

  1. From the left-hand menu, go to Integrations > Ingestion Services > Create your own integration.

  2. Click Add New Integration.

  3. In the Moogsoft Endpoint field, provide a unique integration name.

    You can give it the same name as the target application or customize the name according to your business needs.

  4. In the API Description field, enter a description (optional) of the purpose for the API or other information relevant to your business needs.

  5. Click Save.

The custom endpoint is now provisioned.


Leave this browser tab open as you will use it later on in the procedure. Open a new tab to configure the current integration. See Create your own integration for additional help.

Define the webhook in Sumo Logic

To create a new webhook in Sumo Logic, do the following:

  1. Log in to Sumo Logic.

  2. Click Manage Data > Alerts.

  3. On the Connections tab, click the +New to add a new connection.

  4. Click webhook.

  5. Input the following:

    • Name: Moogsoft

    • Description: Moogsoft

    • URL: Copy the Endpoint URL from Moogsoft Cloud and paste it in this field.

      The endpoint displays in Moogsoft Cloud under Integrations > Ingestion Services > Create Your Own Integration > <Your Integration> > Configuration Information after you save your integration.


    • Custom Headers: Enter your Moogsoft Cloud API key.

      NOTE: Enter your API key using this format: apiKey:<your_API_key> instead of using the example formats provided by Sumo Logic.

    • Payload: Build a payload based on your business use case.

      The body of the payload will vary depending on your specific needs. Sumo Logic allows a payload to be built using mustache template style variables from a large list of Sumo Logic data points.

      Recommended JSON payload:

          "source": "{{ResultsJson._sourceHost}}",
          "results": "{{ResultsJson}}",
          "type": "{{MonitorType}}",
          "severity": "{{TriggerType}}",
          "check": "{{ResultsJson.metric}}",
          "name": "{{Name}}",
          "description": "{{ResultsJson.metric}} {{TriggerCondition}}: {{TriggerValue}}",
          "desc": "{{Description}}",
          "client_url": "{{SearchQueryUrl}}",
          "SourceURL": "{{SourceURL}}",
          "id": "{{Id}}",
          "time": "{{TriggerTime}}"
  6. Click Save.
