Intro

Loggly helps organizations that build and manage cloud-facing applications to solve operational problems faster. Use Domo's Loggly connector to return field names, return the count of a specified field, or perform a Loggly events search. To learn about the Loggly API, visit their website (https://www.loggly.com/docs/api-overview/).

There is also an advanced version of this connector. This version contains additional configuration options, such as the ability to set the start and end date/time and the update type (forced or automatic). For information about this version, see Loggly Advanced Connector.

You connect to your Loggly account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Loggly connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your company's Loggly instance and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • Your Loggly username and password.

  • Your company's Loggly base URL (for example, http://mycompany.loggly.com).

Connecting to Your Loggly Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Loggly Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

 This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your company's Loggly instance. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Username

Enter your Loggly username.

Password

Enter your Loggly password.

Base URL

Enter the URL of your company's Loggly instance. For example: http://mycompany.loggly.com

Once you have entered valid Loggly credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Loggly DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary menu in which you select your Loggly report type. Other options may be available depending on the selected report type.
