Intro

We continue to improve our experiences!
The Agents configuration previously under 'data' in Advanced settings is getting a new and improved UI.

The new Agents configuration blade

We have added a new entry point for Agents Configuration under the "Settings" section in Log Analytics Workspace context:

The new experience  for Agents configuration features a modern new look and feel and is designed to provide a better experience for configuration:

Is this available only in newly created workspace or will also be available in the existing workspaces ? 

Microsoft

Yes @Consultant1520 ! the new experience is available in both new and existing workspaces.

This replaces the old 'Advanced settings' experience with a modern, slick experience.

Hope you have fun using it.

Let us know what you think.

Cheers,

Very cool!
Small question,
What's the difference between "Agents Management" and "Agents Configuration"?

Microsoft

Hi @arikolsh.
Great question!
Agents management is all about downloading and connecting the Agent to Log Analytics.
You can read more about the functionality and scenario in this document:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/log-analytics-agent

Agents configuration is all about the data sources.

Read more about configuration here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/agent-data-sources 

Hope this helps clarify the difference.
Cheers,
R
