Update - The LogReduce operator now provides an optimize option that provides up to 10x speedup over classic LogReduce on datasets with hundreds of thousands of logs.


April 6, 2021 (Dashboard)

Update - Dashboard now supports Dynamic Parsing and Receipt Time. You can set the options under the general settings of a panel built to display log data.


April 1, 2021 (Alerts)

Update - The alert variable Results.fieldName is now supported in email notifications. This allows you to include the value of a specific field from your results.


March 31, 2021 (Metrics)

Update - We've implemented some limitations on the number of metrics metadata tags that Sumo Logic will accept, and the length of metadata keys and values. Limiting the volume and length of metrics metadata ensures that noisy sources of metrics don't inundate your account with excessive metadata. For more information, see Metrics Metadata Limits


March 30, 2021 (Metrics)

Planned deprecation - Round 2 of automatic migration is complete. We'll start deleting the old monitors on April 13. For information, see Metrics Monitors Deprecation FAQs.

March 22, 2021 (Metrics)

Planned deprecation - Round 1 of automatic migration is complete and the old monitors have been deleted. Round 2 of automatic migration will start on March 29. For more information, see Metrics Monitors Deprecation FAQs.


March 16, 2021 (Manage)

Update - Scheduled View queries now provide syntax highlighting and support multiple lines and comments.


March 16, 2021 (Alerts)

Update - We have resolved a discrepancy in the notification payload of Real Time Scheduled Searches.

Previously, the payload for subsequent real time alerts in a given time range would incrementally report the results and omit the records that were already present in the previous alert.

For example, if the Scheduled Search initially returned 10 records, the first alert notification would contain 10 records in the payload. If the next run contained the same 10 records plus 1 additional, the notification payload would only contain the single new record.

Going forward, we will ensure that the records sent in the notification payload will always contain all the records returned in the Scheduled Search. Following the above example, the next run of the Real Time Scheduled Search would return 11 records. This change ensures that the payload will always match the results of the search in Sumo Logic.


March 12, 2021-12 (Collection)

New - Our Cloud-to-Cloud Integration Framework has the following new Sources:


March 11, 2021 (Metrics)

Planned deprecation - Round 1 of automatic migration is complete. Most monitors were successfully migrated and are now muted---we'll start deleting them on March 18. If you have monitors that were not successfully migrated, we'll let you know which monitors weren't migrated and why. For information about how to manually migrate those monitors, see Metrics Monitors Deprecation FAQs. 


March 8, 2021 (Apps)

Update - We have updated our Enterprise Audit - Security Management App to now support ServiceAllowlist audit events.


March 4, 2021 (Observability)

Root Cause Explorer now supports two additional AWS namespaces, as well as Events of Interest detection on Kubernetes and Trace metrics. Cause-impact analysis is now informed by Sumo Logic Tracing's Service Map, AWS X-ray, Kubernetes entities, and AWS inventory relationships. You'll also notice new filters and search builders at the top of the page to correlate Events of Interests at the service, orchestrator, AWS infrastructure, and host levels to speed up the identification of  root causes. You can use the Infrastructure tab for an Event of Interest to pivot to dashboards, logs, metrics and, trace searches to take the next steps in root cause analysis. 


March 1, 2021 (Metrics)

Planned deprecation - We're starting the next step in the process of Metrics Monitors today: we're beginning the first of two rounds of migrating old-style monitors to new Monitors. The next milestone is March 15, when we'll remove the old monitors that were successfully migrated in the first round. For more information, see Metrics Monitors Deprecation FAQs. 


February 26, 2021 (Dashboard)

Update - Dashboard is all about visual control! We're happy to announce that you can now add units to your charts to make them even easier to consume. With the updated chart units on dashboard panels, you can select a base unit and the chart will auto-adjust the unit as the numbers scale, making the data immediately understandable. See how to modify chart axes for details.


February 25, 2021 (Apps)

Update - We are excited to announce out-of-the-box alerts for Kubernetes. We have also updated the dashboards and views in the Kubernetes App to accelerate entity-based troubleshooting of Kubernetes environments.

February 22, 2021 (Metrics)

Planned deprecation - We've taken the next step in the process of Metrics Monitors today: the ability to create new Metrics Monitors from the UI and API is disabled. For more information, see Metrics Monitors Deprecation FAQs. 


February 15, 2021 (Metrics)

Planned deprecation - We're planning to deprecate the Metrics Monitors feature in favor of the Monitors feature we released late last year, which unifies the alert experience across logs and metrics. Important to note: Sumo Logic will automatically migrate most of your existing metrics monitors. The deprecation process will occur in stages, starting next week and culminating in early May. Today, affected customers will receive an in-product communication describing the deprecation process and schedule and what to expect. For more information, see Metrics Monitors Deprecation FAQs. 


February 12, 2021 (Security)

Update - We're releasing a change to audit logging for monitors on Monday, February 15. We've improved the audit logging we do when you import, copy, or delete a  monitor. We now log an audit event for every object created or deleted by an import, copy, or delete operation.


February 10, 2021 (Manage)

Update - We made the process of transferring a deleted user's content to another user more comprehensive. Now, when you select a new owner for the deleted user's Library content, scheduled views will be transferred to the new owner, as well as the user's folders, searches, scheduled searches, and dashboards. For more information, see Delete a User.


February 5, 2021 (AWS Observability)

Update - We are excited to announce support for ECSElastiCache, and Network Load Balancers as well as out-of-the-box alerts for all supported services. As part of this release we have documented changes included in each version of our CloudFormation installation template, which will help you understand when to upgrade.


February 3, 2021 (Manage)

Update - There are two changes to the Partitions page in the Sumo Logic UI. What we previously called the General Index is now the Default Continuous Partition. This is where any data you ingest that isn't assigned to a partition goes. You'll also notice that the Partitions page now lists Sumo Logic internal indexes, like the Audit Event Index and the Data Volume Index. This gives you the flexibility to manage the retention period for each index independently. By default, each internal index has the same retention period as the Default Continuous Partition.


January 22, 2021 (Metrics)

Update - We've made a small change to the Metrics Explorer that makes a big difference:  Advanced Mode now supports auto-complete. Now, just as in Basic Mode, you can construct metric queries in Advanced Mode by selecting metadata fields, dimensions, metrics, and operators from pull-down lists.


January 22, 2021 (Infrastructure)

Update - We've updated the troubleshooting links in the Infrastructure tab to be easier to understand. The original buttons have been replaced with a dropdown menu with labels next to the buttons.

Update - The Infrastructure tab now provides a time option to select if the displayed Entities and Environments are related to the current time or the moment of time around the data point you clicked on.


January 20, 2021 (Alerts)

Update - When we released Monitors (our new alerting framework), we introduced new template variables to be used within Notifications for full customizability of what information is provided in the notification. We are pleased to announce that we are extending support of these variables to Scheduled Searches and Metrics Monitors pages.


January 15, 2021 (Dashboard)

Update - Dashboard now offers a dark theme. Dark Theme makes dashboards pop by putting light colored visualizations and text on top of a darker background. This enables you to build gorgeous dashboards with eye-catching contrast.

Update - Categorical column and bar charts from metrics queries now have a Group By setting that lets you group data by other dimensions.


January 11, 2021 (Alerts)

Update - The payload editor for webhook connections provides syntax highlighting, indentation, and validation.
