AMA Agent manual installation and linking

Copper Contributor

Hi everybody, as far as i know for specific security features defender for cloud needs to Data collection via OMS Agent or AMA to to provide visibility into missing updates, misconfigured OS security settings, Endpoint protection status. How can i manually install and configure it without auto-deployment via defender for cloud? Do i have to link the data?

Kind Regards

Not sure if your looks for Windows client or server. Windows client installation can be found on this link

To install the Azure Monitor agent by using the Azure portal, follow the process to create a data collection rule in the Azure portal. This process creates the rule, associates it to the selected resources, and installs the Azure Monitor agent on them if it's not already installed.
