Last Updated: Dec. 11, 2023

Coralogix simplifies the triggering of third-party services based on specific search results and values under designated keys.

Creating an Action

STEP 1. Navigate to the Coralogix Explore > Logs screen.

STEP 2. Click on Settings in the upper right-hand corner. Select MANAGE ACTIONS from the drop-down menu.

STEP 3. A pop-up window displaying a list of defined Actions will appear. If the list is empty, a new Untitled Action will be opened.

STEP 4. If this isn’t your first Action, click + ADD NEW ACTION to create a new one.

STEP 5. Name the new Action in the Untitled Action pop-up.

STEP 6. In the URL field, add the external tool’s URL. For example: https://test-my-url.com?type={{ $m.subsystemName === "frontend" ? "Front" : "Back" }}.

When using curly brackets {{}}, a dropdown menu with three variable types will appear: $p, $m, $d.

$pVariables which can be used with any log (START_DATE, END_DATE, SELECTED_VALUE)
$mCoralogix metadata fields (applicationName, subsystemName, severity, etc.)
$dSelected log


  • URLs must begin with ‘http://’ or ‘https://’. Other URL structures trigger an instructional message.
  • JavaScript syntax is supported for “Actions,” allowing for conditions like {{ condition ? "true value" : "false value" }}.
  • Nearly all JavaScript functions are supported.

STEP 7. [Optional] Advanced: Restrict the Action to specific applications and/or subsystems. Share it with teammates by activating the Make public when saved toggle.

STEP 8. Click RESET to clear the entered data. To save, click SAVE ACTION.

Manage Custom Actions

STEP 1. In your Coralogix navigation pane, click on Explore > Logs screen page.

STEP 2. Click on Settings in upper right-hand corner. In the drop-down menu, select MANAGE ACTIONS.

STEP 3. A pop-up window, containing a list of defined Actions, will be displayed.

STEP 4. Take various actions:

  • Click on the rectangle icon to clone an Action for easy editing and saving under a new name.
  • Use the eye icon to disable/enable an Action.
  • Click the arrow button to edit or delete an Action.
  • Click + ADD NEW ACTION to define a new Action.
  • Use the group of small gray rectangles on the left side of an Action name to move and set the order within Private/Shared sections.

Custom Action Usage

STEP 1. Access Coralogix Explore > Logs screen.

STEP 2. Define a query.

STEP 3. Trigger the action by:

  • Clicking on (…) next to a specific log or JSON key. Only Actions without “$p.SELECTED_VALUE” in the URL are visible.
  • Clicking on a value lists all defined Actions, including those with “$p.SELECTED_VALUE” in the URL. If defined with “$p.SELECTED_VALUE,” the value from that JSON key is passed.
