Feature Release: Logz.io API Log File Integration
Spring is now upon us and in keeping with the theme of new beginnings we’ve got a new feature release to shout about: brand spanking new integration with Logz.io!
You might remember at the back end of 2017, we launched our much-loved log file integration. This update allowed you to upload log file data as our source in our ever-accommodating crawler, so you can see how search engines crawl your site.

Then, earlier this year, we integrated with Splunk’s log file analyzer, allowing you to automatically pull in log file data directly into your crawl.
Well, now we’ve gone and partnered with another massively popular log file analyzer: Logz.io.
What are the benefits?
In a similar way to our Splunk integration, DeepCrawl users can now integrate their Logz.io accounts to automatically pull in log file data as a source in their crawls.
With log file data integrated you can benefit by:
- Identifying where crawl budget is being wasted crawling pages returning 4xx and 5xx status codes
- Knowing where search engines focus their time crawling your site, allowing you to optimize your crawl budget – you can even break not hits down by device
- Uncovering which of your non-indexable pages are being crawled by search engine bots
- Flagging URLs which are included in your sitemap but aren’t being crawled by search engine bots
How can I integrate Logz.io in my DeepCrawl account?
Integrating your Logz.io account as a crawl source is a simple process.
In the second stage of the crawl setup, add in your crawl sources as usual and when you get to the ‘Log Summary’ section, click on the Logz.io tab and hit the ‘Request Access to Logz.io API’.
Once you’ve requested access a member of our Customer Success team will be in touch with you shortly afterwards to assist you with the setup of the integration.
What if i don’t have a Logz.io account?
What if you want to gain all the benefits of bringing log file data into a crawl but don’t have a Logz.io account that will enable you to do this?
Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered!
Simply click the request access button as outlined above and a member of our Customer Success team will get in touch to give you a demo of the integration and help you set up an account with Logz.io.
If you’ve got any questions about our exciting new Logz.io integration we’d be happy to answer them. Just shoot us over a message or get in touch with your account manager.
We hope you enjoy our latest feature release. Happy crawling!
