Summary of Enhancements

  • View Audit Logs data.

View Audit Logs Data

I’m pleased to announce that using Cloud Portam now you can view Audit Logs data for your Azure Subscriptions.

In order to view Audit Logs data, first you need to connect Cloud Portam to your Azure Subscription. Please visit this blog post on how to do so: http://cloudportam.wpengine.com/cloud-portam-updates-announcing-the-availability-of-azure-subscription-management-in-cloud-portam/.

Once Cloud Portam is connected to your Azure Subscription, you can view Audit Logs data.

For your convenience, we have included a number of predefined date/time ranges. You can simply select on the values to auto-fill From and To date/time values or you can specify your own values.

Based on the search criteria specified, Cloud Portam will search for Audit Logs and display them for you.

Apart from general details about the log entry, you can also view information like authorization information, user claims and details about the HTTP request associated with this log entry. You can go to next / previous displayed log entries from this popup screen as well.

Cloud Portam also enables you to view Audit Log entries for a Resource Group and Storage Account in your Azure Subscription.

To view Audit Log entries for a Resource Group, when you’re viewing the list of Resource Group, simply click/press “Audit Logs” button/context menu for the Resource Group for which you interested in viewing Audit Log entries.

Cloud Portam will open Audit Logs screen in a new tab in your browser and when you search for Audit Logs, it will bring Audit Logs only for the Resource Group selected.

For viewing Audit Logs for a Storage Account, you will follow similar approach as well.
