I'm switching from the OMS Agent to Azure Monitor Agent for its multi-homing capability on Linux. I can get Heartbeat and Syslog into my Log Analytics Workspace but custom logs are not showing.

 

Can Azure Monitor agent send custom logs as of May 2021? I can only find a passing reference to custom log on the Azure Monitor agent overview page (emphasis mine):

 

Current and new feature requirements. Azure Monitor agent introduces several new capabilities such as filtering, scoping, and multi-homing, but it isn’t at parity yet with the current agents for other functionality such as custom log collection and integration with solutions.
