Follow the steps below to configure log shipping to Coralogix.

Step 1 - Credential Procurement

An API key is required to ship logs to Coralogix.

Follow these steps to obtain the API key, store it as an Opaque Secret, and configure external logging.

  1. From the Coralogix Dashboard, click the Data Flow link (in the header), then click the API Keys link.
  2. Generate and/or copy the Send Your Data API Key.
  3. From the Control Plane Console UI, click Secrets from the left menu.
  4. Click the New button.
  5. Enter a Name for the secret, and select Opaque from the Secret Type list.
  6. Paste the string from step #2 into the content text box and click Save.
  7. This secret will be used when configuring logging using the UI Console or CLI.

Step 2 - Configure External Logging

External logging can be configured by using either the UI Console or CLI.

Enable Logging using the UI Console

  1. From the Control Plane Console UI, click on Org in the left menu.
  2. Click External Logs in the middle context menu.
  3. Select Coralogix and fill out the required fields.
  4. Select the Opaque secret created to authenticate to Coralogix. Refer to the credential procurement section to obtain and configure the necessary credentials.
  5. Click Save.
  6. After the configuration is complete, log entries will be available at Coralogix within a few minutes.
TIP

The cluster name will be the domain name that resolves when using the Coralogix dashboard.

Enable Logging using the CLI

The external logging configuration can be created / updated using the CLI's cpln org patch ORG_NAME -f FILE.yaml command.

Below is an example Org manifests (in YAML). Edit and save the YAML as a file and use it as an input to the CLI's cpln org patch ORG_NAME -f FILE.yaml command.

Refer to the credential procurement section to obtain and configure the necessary credentials.

  • Substitute: ORG_NAME, OPAQUE_SECRET, and possibly the cluster.
  • Note: Use the cluster URL that matches your Coralogix account. The cluster will be the domain name that resolves when using the Coralogix dashboard.
