Automating the Transition to Log Ingestion API & Data Collection Rules for your Logs in LogAnalytics

English Intermediate Other

This session will give you deep insight to master the transition to the new DCR-formatted Logs and Log Ingestion API in Azure LogAnalytics – so you are ready to deal with the deprecation of MMA and HTTP Log Collector API. You will learn how to automate Data Collection Rules, Data Collection Endpoint, Tables – and handle the challenges with the schema. You will learn about new Powershell functions, which can help you master the automation tasks – developed by the speaker. We will also talk about ways to transform your data as a key new feature. You will see lots of demos - including how to create and update LogAnalytics tables + DCRs based upon any source data structure; how to deal with prohibited column names, transformKql - and how to modify existing DCR and table, when source schema changes.
