Zoom unifies cloud video and audio conferencing, simple online meetings, and group messaging into one easy-to-use platform. The cloud platform facilitates collaboration across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems for an online meeting space you can depend on. Zoom allows you to stay connected wherever you go with face-to-face video, high quality screen sharing, and instant messaging.

The Sumo Logic App for Zoom provides visibility into how Zoom is being used across your organization, displaying analytics on performance, availability, security, and user activity. The app aggregates and reports on data so you can correlate and investigate trends and respond to incidents across all of your IT tools in a consistent and timely manner.

  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.
