Azure Security Center Recommendations Log Analytics Query syntax

Occasional Visitor



Could someone point me in the direction of a resource that provides a mapping of the recommendations in Security Center with theassociated Log Analytics query syntax? For example SC lists all of the machines that are not compliant with the recommendations in list below. I need to extract these results out into a spreadsheet and cannot see how to do this other than maybe running a query in Log analytics? If so does anyone know of a listing of these queries?

On the Log Analytics portal, on the upper-right area, you can find the query explorer, and in it selected solution queries for your convenience:

ASC recommendations for Azure resources are not available as data in Log Analytics. Best option is to use unofficial ASC PowerShell module Azure-Security-Center. You can use Get-ASCTask to get recommendations on resources.
