Auth0 Dashboard

Here, at Auth0, we have been using the Auth0 to Sumo Logic extension ourselves since it was first released, and it's proven to be very useful for staying on top of what's happening with our own Auth0 accounts and our internal users. Sumo Logic makes it easy to see the latest failed logins, find and alert on error messages, create charts to visualize trends, or even do complex statistical analysis on your data.

To help us (and our customers) visualize these logs, we spent some time creating a dashboard. The Sumo Logic for Auth0 dashboard shows you the output of several saved searches all on one easy to read screen, and makes it easy to zoom in or drill down when something looks interesting.

If you're a Sumo Logic customer and are interested in trying out this dashboard, you can find details on installing the Auth0 App for the Sumo Logic extension here:

Once it's available through your account, you're free to customize it, add to it, create alerts based on the searches, or really anything else that you find useful.

Have fun analyzing and visualizing those logs!
