As of April 2018, any newly onboarded Log Analytics workspace will now be on consumption-based pricing. If you have pre-April 2018 workspaces setup, you can continue with them or move to the new pricing model. In this video I go over the licensing change in Azure OMS Log analytics. I also go over how to get an estimate of the new pricing and show you how to convert an existing workspace to the new pricing plan.
