How Does eG Enterprise Monitor Microsoft Azure Active Directory?

eG Enterprise provides a specialized Microsoft Azure Active Directory model to monitor Azure AD. To collect metrics from the Azure AD, eG Enterprise employs an agentless monitoring approach - i.e., it uses an eG remote agent deployed on any Windows/Linux host/VM in the environment.

In order to collect these metrics, the eG remote agent does the following:

  • Communicates with Microsoft Azure AD and pulls metrics using the Microsoft Graph API;

  • Reads from logs (e.g., AD Sign-in Logs.) sent to a Log Analytics Workspace

To enable the eG agent to perform the above, you need to make sure that the requirements detailed in thePre-requisites for Monitoring the Microsoft Azure Active Directorytopic are fulfilled.
