Additional Information

(Optional) Configure Azure Log Analytics as the Logstream Destination on the CloudGen Firewall

If you want to configure the CloudGen Firewall to send the logstream to Microsoft Azure Log Analytics, select Microsoft OMS Security from the Logstream Destination list. For more information, see How to Configure Log Streaming to Microsoft Azure Log Analytics.

To stream logs to Microsoft Azure Log Analytics using the CEF format, you must configure Microsoft OMS Security as the streaming destination.

Data sent to Log Analytics will show up under the Syslog tag in Azure Log Analytics. Data sent to Microsoft OMS Security can be found under CommonSecurityLog, which requires Security and Audit to be enabled in the workspace (select Configure monitoring solutions and search for the solution).
