To store your data in Matano, you work with log sources. A log source represents log data from a specific source.
To ingest data into Matano, you create a log source and define where the data comes from and details like the schema of the log source. You can either use a Matano managed log source, where Matano will automatically transform and map your data for you, or a custom log source, where you specify the schema and transformation to normalize your log source.
Data from your log sources is ingested into Matano tables that you can then view and query, create realtime detections on the log data, and consume the table as a streaming data source.
The topics in this section provide an overview of working with log sources in Matano. They include information about defining, creating, and using log sources.
