Azure Log Analytics

Send logs, metrics to Azure Log Analytics
Azure output plugin allows to ingest your records into Azure Log Analytics service.
To get more details about how to setup Azure Log Analytics, please refer to the following documentation: Azure Log Analytics

Configuration Parameters

Customer ID or WorkspaceID string.
The primary or the secondary Connected Sources client authentication key.
The name of the event type.
If included, the value for this key will be looked upon in the record and if present, will over-write the log_type. If not found then the log_type value will be used.
Optional parameter to specify the key name where the timestamp will be stored.
If enabled, the HTTP request header 'time-generated-field' will be included so Azure can override the timestamp with the key specified by 'time_key' option.

Getting Started

In order to insert records into an Azure Log Analytics instance, you can run the plugin from the command line or through the configuration file:

Command Line

The azure plugin, can read the parameters from the command line in two ways, through the -p argument (property), e.g:
$ fluent-bit -i cpu -o azure -p customer_id=abc -p shared_key=def -m '*' -f 1

Configuration File

In your main configuration file append the following Input & Output sections:
Name cpu
Name azure
Match *
Customer_ID abc
Shared_Key def
Another example using the Log_Type_Key with record-accessor, which will read the table name (or event type) dynamically from kubernetes label app, instead of Log_Type:
Name cpu
Name azure
Match *
Log_Type_Key $kubernetes['labels']['app']
Customer_ID abc
Shared_Key def
