Sumo Logic Integration

Sumo Logic sends alerts from scheduled searches to third-party applications via Webhooks and forward Opsgenie alerts to Sumo Logic.


​What does Opsgenie offer Sumo Logic users?

Opsgenie provides a two-way integration with Sumo logic. When an action happened at Opsgenie alerts, the webhook data will be forwarded to the Sumo Logic. Also, Sumo Logic sends webhook alerts to Opsgenie which acts as a dispatcher for these alerts and determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created in Sumo Logic, an alert will be created automatically in Opsgenie.
  • When an alert action happened in Opsgenie, the webhook payload will be sent to Sumo Logic.
