To stream logs from your Heroku application to Loom, add a secure (TLS) Syslog drain. To add the drain, run the following command (replacing myapp with your application name):

heroku drains:add syslog+tls:// -a myapp

Note: it sometimes take up to several minutes for a data source to be added to Loom

Choose your app name from heroku's application list which introduced by the following command:

heroku apps

The Heroku drain does not send the application name (only the drain ID), so you will need to manually map a drain ID to the application it was created for. To do this, edit the mapping function of your Loom Syslog data input.
