The Function can be used in Jenkins Pipelines to send files data to Sumo Logic. Function allow below properties:-

  1. file - Provide a file path or a directory path. If the value is a directory then data from all files within the directory will be sent to Sumo Logic.
  2. includePathPattern - Provide a pattern to include file names or extension. For eg:- *.json will include all json files only.
  3. excludePathPattern - Provide a pattern to exclude file names or extension. For eg:- *.json will exclude all json files only.
  4. text - Provide any string that will be sent to Sumo Logic.
  5. keyValueMap - Provide a key value map that will be converted to JSON and sent to Sumo Logic.
  6. workingDir - Provides the path of the directory where files are present. The path will be searched in the node where the Pipeline Step is executed.
  7. fields - Provide a key value map that will be sent as X-Sumo-Fields to Sumo Logic.

Below are some example uses of the Step Function :-
