Data is stored within Humio 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 Humio, 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.

Create a Repository

Creating repository and setting repository configuration

Ingest Data

Data is added to a repository through a process called ingestion. Ingestion reads the data and parses the data to extract and identify fields and values.

Search a Repository

How to search and query the information storing within the repository.

Create a Dashboard

Dashboards enable you to save searches and widgets (graphs, tables etc) to display them into a single display. With a dashboard, you can easily monitor the data, you’ll see in graphs and tables search criteria results. This is covered in the User Interface section.

Security & Authentication

Security of your data, including user management, audit logging, authentication, authorization, and using third-party identity providers.

Create a View

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.

The configuration, management and usage of repositories is handled primarily through the Humio User Interface.
