Azure OMS Log Analytics Step by Step – Adding Custom Logs

In previous videos I demonstrated how to collect Event logs from a Windows server in Azure Log Analytics. You may need to also collect custom logs from applications that don’t log to the event log. In this video I show how to collect custom logs in Azure Log Analytics. Once collected, I also show how to define custom fields in those custom logs and run queries against it.
