    Yes, this means we have to configure the LCM policy to delete the older logs from $logs. At the moment LCM doesn't support $logs container

    Configure a lifecycle management policy

    The diagnostic settings storage retention feature of Azure Monitor will be retired and retention will no longer be applied to logs sent to storage account destinations via diagnostic settings.

    It refers to the diagnostic setting of all the logging resource (not just the enabled resource). When we select Archive to a storage account, the Retention (days) will be the retention feature of diagnostic setting. As the note explained, it can be set from 1 to 365 days. if it set to 0 means it retains data forever.

    If you have any additional questions or need further clarification, please let me know.
