I am wondering if someone can clear this up for me or not. Currently when I go into advanced settings > Data > Windows Event Logs in the Azure Log Analytics workspace for any of my current tenants I do not see you can collect Security log itself from windows. I just see others that are not the actual Security log I want. Is this possible to collect, or is this being collected by default and I am not noticing?

I see something about a Security and Audit log solution needed and Microsoft doesn't offer collecting Security logs in OMS? Is this true? https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/azure-log-analytics/oms-query-for-ad-login-and-log-offs/m-p/162689#

As if I look here, I do not see Security logs are mentioned https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/data-sources-windows-events

And screen shot here as well obviously not showing up in the search options to add for collection

Any clarification on this would be appreciated

I think I may have found it where you enable it here in Azure Security Center https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/security-center/security-center-enable-data-collection#data-collection-tier
