As more and more of you adopt Azure Active Directory (AD)—the service now manages 1.1 BILLION (!!!) identities—we’ve received a ton of requests to make it easier to access and analyze the huge amounts of data the service creates on your behalf. You’ve told us you need access to all this data to do all kinds of analytics for business, operations, and security processes, and to also monitor Azure AD as a critical component of your infrastructure.
Today, I’m excited to announce the availability of one of our top-requested features: the ability to forward your Azure AD logs to Azure Log Analytics! With this integration, Log Analytics gives you the power to query huge amounts of your Azure AD data to find events, analyze trends, and create rich visualizations within minutes.
This integration gives you the richness of data available through Azure AD logs to resolve cross-service scenarios. For example:
In addition to the above scenarios, customers now can get the Azure AD logs in the same workspace where they have their Azure logs, as well as other logs (like Office 365), to perform a broader analysis and successful monitoring of their infrastructure.
To learn more about forwarding Azure AD logs to Azure Log Analytics, check out these resources:
Once you try out the integration of Azure AD logs with Log Analytics, give us your valuable feedback on the either the Azure AD Tech Community or Log Analytics Tech Community. You can also let us know what you think in the comments below. As always, we’d love to hear any feedback or suggestions you have.
