Create a log stream

First, we'll need to create a log stream. This is a one time operation, and we recommend storing log entries with same schema in a single log stream. So, for example, you can use one log stream per application (given that all logs from that application have the same schema).

OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient().newBuilder().build();MediaType mediaType = MediaType.parse("text/plain");RequestBody body = RequestBody.create(mediaType, "");Request request = new Request.Builder()    // TODO: Replace the url with your Parseable URL and stream name    .url("https://<parseable-url>/api/v1/logstream/<stream-name>")    .method("PUT", body)    // TODO: Replace the basic auth credentials with your Parseable credentials    .addHeader("Authorization", "Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=")    .build();Response response = client.newCall(request).execute();

Send logs to the log stream

After log stream is created, you can start sending logs to the log stream using HTTP POST requests.

OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient().newBuilder()    .build();MediaType mediaType = MediaType.parse("application/json");RequestBody body = RequestBody.create(mediaType, "[\n    {\n        \"id\": \"434a5f5e-2f5f-11ed-a261-asdasdafgdfd\",\n        \"datetime\": \"24/Jun/2022:14:12:15 +0000\",\n        \"host\": \"153.10.110.81\", \n        \"user-identifier\": \"Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:64.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/64.0\", \n        \"method\": \"PUT\", \n        \"status\": 500, \n        \"referrer\": \"http://www.google.com/\"\n    }\n]");Request request = new Request.Builder()    // TODO: Replace the url with your Parseable URL and stream name    .url("https://<parseable-url>/api/v1/logstream/<stream-name>")    .method("POST", body)    // INFO: Use X-P-META-<key>:<value> to add custom metadata to the log event    .addHeader("X-P-META-Host", "192.168.1.3")    // INFO: Use X-P-TAG-<key>:<value> to add tags to the log event    .addHeader("X-P-TAG-Language", "java")    // TODO: Replace the basic auth credentials with your Parseable credentials    .addHeader("Authorization", "Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=")    .addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")    .build();Response response = client.newCall(request).execute();

Querying a log stream

Once you have started sending logs to a log stream, you can query the logs using standard SQL.

OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient().newBuilder()    .build();MediaType mediaType = MediaType.parse("application/json");// TODO: Replace the stream name with your log stream nameRequestBody body = RequestBody.create(mediaType, "{\n    \"query\": \"select * from <stream-name>\",\n    \"startTime\": \"2022-09-10T08:20:00+00:00\",\n    \"endTime\": \"2022-09-10T08:20:31+00:00\"\n}\n");Request request = new Request.Builder()    // TODO: Replace the url with your Parseable URL    .url("https://<parseable-url>/api/v1/query")    .method("POST", body)    // TODO: Replace the basic auth credentials with your Parseable credentials    .addHeader("Authorization", "Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=")    .addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")    .build();Response response = client.newCall(request).execute();
