Webhook Alert and SSL certificates
How do you apply SSL certificates to Sumo Logic to support Alerting through Webhooks to external systems? I created an Alert configuration that uses a Webhook. The Webhook initiates a REST POST and sends a JSON payload to an external server. The connection is failing because the receiving server is setup for SSL communication and Sumo Logic does not have the certificates. I am using the SaaS trial version of Sumo Logic. How do I make this work?
When sending alerts via Webhook only generic HTTP & HTTPS are currently supported, with no capability to specify a specific certificate to be used to encrypt the outbound connection. This is a fairly common approach used by many existing providers (LINK).
Where an additional layer of security is required, this is typically implemented through the use of a unique Authorization Header or Token (LINK).
If this is an important feature for you, can I suggest voting for the feature in our Ideas portal (LINK), detailing why this would benefit you and your organisation. These ideas feed directly into our roadmap decisions, so add as much detail as you are able!Comment actions
