Configure an Active Directory Application in Azure AD for the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services

To gather data from the Windows Azure Service Management APIs, you must first create an active directory application in Azure AD.

Follow the instructions in the Microsoft documentation to create an active directory application: Use portal to create an Azure Active Directory application and service principal that can access resources for either your Azure portal or Azure Government portal.

When prompted, select or enter the following parameters:

  • Client ID: Required for Azure App account.
    • Copy this value. You need this value and a valid secret key to connect to your account from the add-on.
  • Key: Required for Azure App account.
    • Copy this value to a secure location as soon as the Azure AD admin console displays it.
  • Tenant ID: Required for Azure App account.
    • Copy this value for the future use.

Application permissions to access Windows Azure Service Management APIs

Select Access Azure Service Management as organization under Delegated Permissions.

Grant the Active Directory Application Read Access

After creating the Active Directory Application, login to either the Azure portal or the Azure Government portal to grant this application the read access to Microsoft Cloud Service (You must have a Premium P1 Active Directory level edition or higher to perform this operation). See Use portal to create an Azure Active Directory application and service principal that can access resources for more information.
