Repositories and Views

Organise your data into Repositories and combine them using Views

Data is stored within LogScale in a repository. The repository organizes the collection of data with associated storage. Often there will be one physical repository per project or system. However, this may vary based on the data volume, user permissions and many other factors.

Within LogScale, each repository has its own set of users, dashboards, saved queries, and parsers. In a repository, you can control data retention and create parsers to distinguish incoming data.

The following diagram provides an overview of the configuration flow to ingest data using LogScale.

  • Creating and Configuring Repositories

    To start working with LogScale you will need to create and configure repositories to manage your data, see Create a Repository for information on creating repositories and for information on how to configure Repository Settings like data retention.

  • Enriching Event Text via File

    This page allows you to add text to events for search purposes using a CSV file. See Lookup Files for more information.

  • Creating and Configuring Views

    Views provide alternative representations of the data, either to limit the access to specific users, to filter out events, and to enable searching multiple repositories, for details on how to create a view, see Creating a View and for view settings see View Settings.

  • Deleting Repositories and Views

    Repositories and Views can be deleted, for details see Delete a Repository or View.

If you're new to LogScale, you may want to look at the LogScale Training section of the LogScale Library. Start by reading the Getting Started Tutorial. You may also want to read through the Foundational Concepts pages.
