Configuring Managed Identities for Logs Ingestion with Azure Monitor Logs Ingestion API

Posted by

In this post, Bruno Gabrielli discusses how to use Managed Identities as authentication method for custom log ingestion Monitor Ingestion API. Bullet Points:

What is Managed Identity?

Managed Identity is a feature of Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) that allows an application to authenticate to services that support Azure AD authentication, without needing to store credentials in the application code.

What is System Assigned Managed Identity?

System Assigned Managed Identity is a type of Managed Identity that is created and managed by Azure. It is associated with a single Azure resource, such as a Virtual Machine, and it exists as long as the resource exists.

How To Use Managed Identity with Log Ingestion API?

To use Managed Identity with Log Ingestion API, you need to:

1. Enable System Assigned Managed Identity

The first step is to enable System Assigned Managed Identity on the Azure resource that will be used to ingest the logs.

2. Grant Access to Log Analytics

The second step is to grant the System Assigned Managed Identity access to the Log Analytics workspace.

3. Get the Access Token

The third step is to get the Access Token from the System Assigned Managed Identity.

4. Use the Access Token

The fourth and final step is to use the Access Token when making the Log Ingestion API request.

Using Managed Identity with Log Ingestion API is a great way to simplify authentication and make sure that your application is always up to date with the latest security standards.

In conclusion, using Managed Identity with Log Ingestion API is a great way to simplify authentication and make sure that your application is always up to date with the latest security standards. It also allows you to keep your credentials secure and out of your application code.

I hope this post has been helpful and I look forward to hearing your feedback.
