Timber is designed to be intuitive. When you first log in, Timber will guide you through setting up your account; a guide is not necessary. For those that prefer explicit instructions please follow the steps below.
Navigate to the Timber app and create your personal account. You can signup through a social integration, such as Github or Google, or create a Timber specific account.
Before you can use Timber you must create an organization. An organization is the highest organizational unit within Timber. It is a workspace that contains members, log sources, and more. Your chosen organization name will also serve as your URL slug (https://app.timber.io/slug).
After creating an organization you'll want to create your first log source. A source is simply a container for log data, such as a Kubernetes cluster, a Ruby app, or a collection of log files. You can create as many as you want and they should align with how you collect your log data.
After creating your source Timber will display a set of credentials (your API key and source ID). Use these credentials to integrate your source with Timber.
Once you've integrated your source with Timber you'll want to verify log delivery using the source debugger. This will simply display the received log data. If you aren't seeing log data please read the troubleshoot log delivery guide.
All done! Time to start using your log data:
