The Airtable App also offers a pre-built dashboard that enables you to start monitoring your Airtable audit logs right away. The Airtable App for Sumo Logic is especially useful for organizations that must comply with regulatory requirements or maintain a high level of security. With the ability to monitor user activity and track changes in real time, you can quickly identify potential issues and respond to security incidents as they occur.

Log Types​

The Sumo Logic App for Airtable consumes Audit logs from your Airtable Enterprise account. Audit Logs track user activity and record changes made to the data in the system.

To understand how to access detailed records of changes made to the Airtable Enterprise account, refer to the Airtable Audit logs documentation. This documentation provides information on the different types of logs that are available, how to access them, and what information they contain.

Installing the Airtable App​

Before you begin, collect logs from Airtable API and ingest them into Sumo Logic. Refer to the Airtable API Cloud-to-Cloud Integration to create the source and use the same source category while installing the app.

To install the app:

  1. From the Sumo Logic navigation, select App Catalog.
  2. In the Search Apps field, search for and then select your app.
  3. Optionally, you can scroll down to preview the dashboards included with the app. Then, click Install App (sometimes this button says Add Integration).

    If your app has multiple versions, you'll need to select the version of the service you're using before installation.

  4. On the next configuration page, under Select Data Source for your App, complete the following fields:
    • Data Source. Select one of the following options:
      • Choose Source Category and select a source category from the list; or
      • Choose Enter a Custom Data Filter, and enter a custom source category beginning with an underscore. For example, _sourceCategory=MyCategory.
    • Folder Name. You can retain the existing name or enter a custom name of your choice for the app.
    • All Folders (optional). Default location is the Personal folder in your Library. If desired, you can choose a different location and/or click New Folder to add it to a new folder.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Look for the dialog confirming that your app was installed successfully.

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder or the folder that you specified. From here, you can share it with other users in your organization. Dashboard panels will automatically start to fill with data matching the time range query received since you created the panel. Results won't be available immediately, but within about 20 minutes, you'll see completed graphs and maps.

Viewing Airtable Dashboards​​

  • All dashboards have a set of filters that you can apply to the entire dashboard, as shown in the following example. Click the funnel icon in the top dashboard menu bar to display a scrollable list of filters that are applied across the entire dashboard.

    You can use filters to drill down and examine the data on a granular level. Filters include client country, client device type, client IP, client request host, client request URI, client request user agent, edge response status, origin IP, and origin response status.

  • Each panel has a set of filters that are applied to the results for that panel only, as shown in the following example. Click the funnel icon in the top panel menu bar to display a list of panel-specific filters.
