Humio Cloud

You can register for a free account using Humio Community Edition.

To get started with a full account, go to Getting Started with Humio SaaS and request an account.

From your Humio Cloud account, you can use the Interactive Tutorial to see how Humio works with sample data. If you like what you see, you can configure your server to send log and metric data to your private, Humio Cloud repository — while still using a trial account. This will allow you to see what Humio can do with your data. You might also read our Getting Started Tutorial as a compliment to the trial cloud account. Once you're convinced that Humio will work for you, you can make your trial account a permanent one. Then you can add several repositories.

Below is a list of what you'll find in this section of the Documentation to help you use Humio Cloud. For any topic that interests you, click on the heading to go to the related documentation page.

Cloud Registration

If you click on the link here, you'll be taken to a page that will describe the process of registering for a trial account on Humio Cloud. You may be leery about registering for software until you're sure about it, so this page is meant to put your mind at rest, to assure you that you won't be asked for private details or a credit card number.

Organization Settings

After you have a regular Humio Cloud account, not just a trial account, you may want to involve others, give them access to your data in Humio. This page on Organization Settings will explain how to do that through the Humio User Interface.

Repository-Based Permissions

Most organizations involve more than one person. Therefore, you'll need to be able to add users and give them permission to access your data. The default method is to grant permissions based on the repository being accessed. This is covered on this page: click on the heading above this paragraph.

Role-Based Permissions

For more flexibility and possibilities in assigning permissions, to be able to create and define your own user roles and to user groups, you would use the role-based permissions model.

Identity Providers

User authentication is an important part of user access, but it can be cumbersome to maintain a multiple systems. Humio can be integrated with security systems you may already have in place. This page will explain how to use them with your Humio Cloud account.

S3 Archiving (Cloud)

Archiving ingested logs to Amazon S3. The archived logs are then available for further processing in any external system that integrates with S3.

These documentation pages are primarily about accessing Humio Cloud. Once you've set up your Humio Cloud account, you can add private repositories and configure your servers to send data to those repositories at Humio. You'll then be able to search and monitor your data from your Humio Cloud account, using the Humio User Interface. That and other such activities, though, are the same for all methods of using Humio. Therefore, everything else about Humio is covered in other sections of the Humio Documentation.
