  • <endpoint> is your Sumo Logic service endpoint. See Sumo Logic Endpoints and Firewall Security for the endpoint URLs.

  • <urlEncodedQuery> is the text of your log search query in URL encoded format.

Examples‚Äč

Standard query URL‚Äč

Create a URL for the following log query, using a relative time range expression of -10w to -1w.:

test query | count by _source

The custom URL that launches this log query in the Sumo Logic Search page would be similar to the following. The exact URL would depend on your Sumo Logic account endpoint, as listed in Sumo Logic Endpoints and Firewall Security. 

https://service.sumologic.com/ui/#/search/create?query=test%20query%20%7C%20count%20by%20_source&startTime=-10w&endTime=-1w

Templatized query URL‚Äč

Create a URL for the following log query, using a relative time range expression of -60m to -30m.:

{{app_name}} error | count

Assuming that user selects billing app from the list of apps, the final query is :

billing error | count

The custom URL that launches this log query in the Sumo Logic Search page would be similar to the following. The exact URL would depend on your Sumo Logic account endpoint, as listed in Sumo Logic Endpoints by Deployment and Firewall Security. 

https://service.sumologic.com/ui/#/search/create?query={{app_name}}%20error%20%7C%20count&parameters=app_name:billing&startTime=-60m&endTime=-30m
