Graylog live demo server (REST API)

Hi! Is there a live demo server of a Graylog instance where I can get familiar with the REST API without having to manually install and set up my own log sources?
Thank you for any point in the right direction. :slight_smile:

That’s a good idea. But currently there is no such demo server.
However, it is very easy to get started with docker and some simple test logs, which will enable you to explore the APIs.

Thanks, trying it out.
Which REST API endpoint should be used for searching? /api/search/universal/relative makes sense, but it is listed as “Legacy”. Also, I can’t seem to figure out which roles/permissions my user should have to be granted access to this endpoint. “Admin” works, but “Reader” only returns 403 - I can’t seem to find any Roles that are “in between” Admin and Reader. I’d just like my token to have the permission to search logs.

A good way to understand the search APIs is to look at the requests the UI issues when you perform a search. The UI communicates exclusively via the APIs with the backend.
