Adding existing logs to Log Analytics

I created a video to walk you through how to add existing logs to Log Analytics. There have been some changes to the way you do this.

The location of the settings to configure this has now move to Log Analytics in the Azure Portal. Previously, this was in the Operations Management Suite (OMS).

Logon to your Azure Portal ( and click through to your log analytics workspace.  Then click on Advanced Settings


The Advanced Settings page will allow you to configure your data sources and where your logs will be pulled from. The rest of the video is the same.
