Getting Data In

Azure connection concern



I know there are many splunk add on's available to collect azure monitor metrics which collects the logs using app id, client id, directory and secret key.  My question is how these add on's actually authenticate and pulls these azure metrics, as azure these metrics can only be retrieved using bearer tokens. If we create bearer token in azure monitor its valid for only 24 hours. 

Actually we need to create some custom add ons to pull azure metrics, but unable to crack how to authenticate. Can some one please guide us.

Hi @roopeshetty,

we're ingesting logs from Azure using two Add-Ons:

Following the above links you can find a detailed procedure to configure Azure to send logs to Splunk.

We configured the accounts on Azure to take logs and they are working from september without changing them, but I'm not sure that they are the same, for this reason I hint to follow the documentation.

If you're speking of something different, search in Splunk Baseline if there's some Add-On that can help you.

Only one attention, not all the logs and report are free in Azure, there's something that requires a dedicated license in Azure, so check this.

It's un'useful to ask help to Microsoft because they don't answer to any question if you say "splunk".
