I am new to SumoLogic. I think I need to set up an HTTP Source so that I can log data with a curl command (api) to a locally installed collector. I was reading https://help.sumologic.com/Send-Data/Sources/02Sources-for-Hosted-Collectors/HTTP-Source and I see:
- In the Sumo Logic web app, select Manage Data > Collection > Collection.
- In the Collectors page, click Add Source next to a hosted collector.
- Select HTTP.
In my management consul I do not see the HTTP option. I am guessing that is related to the fact that I installed a Collector on my desktop linux unbuntu system which uses dhcp. Does this make sense?
I would guess the management consul knows this and will not allow a HTTP Source as there would be no way to reliable create an url to get to this machine?
