Microsoft account and related modular inputs

The Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services uses two types of Microsoft accounts to collect data: the Azure App account and the Azure Storage account.

  • If you want to collect data from the Azure audit and Azure resource inputs, you must first apply for an Azure app account. Then, connect your Azure app account to the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services.
  • If you want to collect data from the Azure Storage Table input, which includes Virtual machine metrics, or the Azure Storage Blob input, you must first apply for an Azure Storage account. Then, connect your Azure Storage account to the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Cloud Services.

Microsoft account permission requirements

To collect data from Azure audit and Azure resource, you must configure an Azure Active Directory Application with read permissions. See Add permissions to your Active Directory Application.

To collect data from Azure storage table and Azure storage blob, see configure the storage account to get data.
