Let Oomnitza be your single source of truth!

Connect Oomnitza and Sumo Logic in minutes

Get the information and insights that you need to reduce costs and the time that you spend on administration tasks such as:

  • Configurable dashboards and list views of key user information
  • Configurable reports to share information about your users with your colleagues and management
  • Configurable workflows that you can easily create such as:
    • Workflows for deactivating users
    • Workflows for deleting users

Before you start

To get the information that you need to integrate with Oomnitza, you generate an access ID and key, which you use to connect Oomnitza to Sumo Logic.

Best practice: Create a new user for the integration with Oomnitza rather than using an existing user account.

When you generate an access ID and key in Sumo Logic, make sure you copy the access key. Once the access ID and key are generated, the value for the key will no longer be available.
