When integrating a new application with your BetterCloud instance, the overall installation process is consistent. However, each integration is different, and may require varying levels and types of authentication. This article provides instructions for configuring and collecting all the information you need in order to add the Sumo Logic integration in BetterCloud.
BetterCloud requires you to enter the following information when integrating with Sumo Logic:
- Username (Access ID) & Password (Access Key)
You will also need to enter the following additional environment variable in order to successfully connect:
Please note: Integrating Sumo Logic with BetterCloud requires Service Allowlist settings to be disabled.

The Username and Password will be an Access ID and Access Key pair created in Sumo Logic.
In the Sumo Logic Administration Console, navigate to Administration > Security > Access Keys
Next, select +Add Access Key
Give the Access Key a name, and click Create Key.
