Search Azure logs exported to Blob storage
As Azure administrator, I want to be able to search my Azure logs and retain them for several years.
Along with Azure Log Analytics, Azure allows for exporting logs to Blob storage. The latter option is about 100 times less expensive than the former.
However, logs are exported as multiple JSON files, so they are not easily searchable.
So, Given I configured the export of Azure Activity logs or Diagnostics logs or Azure AD logs or Storage logs into my Blob storage
And I [optionally] installed the self-hosted version of CloudVyzor LogPad on any of my VM in the same tenant
When I copy and paste the read-only Shared Access Signature (SAS) from the log's container into CloudVyzor LogPad.
Then I can start searching all this log data immediately.
