Sumo Logic helps the world's leading companies analyze and make sense of their log data.


SumoLogic uses API Key based auth, a developer-friendly delegated access protocol. Quolum has already connected the necessary wires with SumoLogic. Using a sequence of click-throughs, your organization's administrator allows Quolum to make API calls to SumoLogic without getting access to passwords.

Step 1: Initiate a connection to Readme

Click the Connect button from the Connections card. If you are not an admin, you can invite your organization's SumoLogic admin to make a connection to your SumoLogic organization account. When you click on the Connect button, the web browser will navigate to the SumoLogic login page.

Step 2: Log in to SumoLogic

Log in to SumoLogic using your organization's credentials. The exact login mechanism may depend on your SumoLogic plan, and the sign-in mechanism used. You may have corporate SSO such as Azure AD, GSuite, or Okta along with multi-factor authentication. Once you have successfully logged-in you can find the Access ID and API Key as mentioned below in Step 3.

Step 3: How to find Access ID and API Key

To find your Access ID and Access Key in Sumo Logic, please follow these steps:

  • Log in to Sumo Logic using your credentials.
  • Click on the gear icon (settings) in the upper right-hand corner of the Sumo Logic UI.
  • From the drop-down menu, select "Preferences."
  • On the "Preferences" page, select "API Access."
  • Under the "Access Keys" section, you will see your Access ID and Access Key.

Note: You may need to generate an Access Key if you haven't created one already. To generate a new Access Key, click the "Generate New Access Key" button, enter a description for the key, and click "Generate." You can then copy the Access ID and Access Key for use in your API requests.

Step 4: Back to Quolum

Once you have granted access to Quolum, SumoLogic is going to send you back to Quolum's page in Step 1, where you started. The Connect button on the Connections card would now say Reconnect. Reconnect is used to reauthenticate under circumstances where the access has expired.

Under the hood

Using the OAuth protocol, Quolum now has delegated access to your SumoLogic Workspace. The Quolum server, running on Amazon AWS VPC, will be able to make API calls and retrieve feature-level utilization. Later, this data is crunched and available for visualization on the Quolum dashboard.
