How to disconnect Azure Sentinel data connectors?

RAHUL MP 20 Reputation points

In Sentinel I cant able to find an option to disconnect the data connectors . And there are no documents available for the same. So what are the methods to disconnect a data connector inside sentinel for both native and non native products. When I checked I understood that we can either disconnect the connector by stopping the logs from source or by deleting the DCR associated with that data connector. Is this the only way or do we have any other methods.

    While this would be data connector-specific, in general, this is unfortunately not straightforward. For more, refer to

    Thank for posting your query on Microsoft Q&A, from above description I could understand that you are looking for guidance on removing a data connector from Sentinel.

    Please do correct me if this is not the ask by responding in the comments section.

    For Microsoft services data connectors:

    To delete the connector, please follow the below steps.

    • Open sentinel portal >
    • Click on Data connectors blade at the left > Search for "Microsoft Entra ID" data connector
    • Click on the three dots at the right and delete it.

    It will take some time for the connector to show as disconnected. (We can’t give an actual ETA for it) But since there are no logs ingested, there wouldn’t be any impact on your environment. (There won’t be any extra charges incurred). 

    It will take a maximum of 14 days without logs for the connector to get disconnected.

    For Third party services:

    The connector disconnection steps would be same until it's an API solution. You must connect with the third-party support to stop the logs ingestion and get it disconnected.

    Once done the threshold would be same to get it deleted.

    If you don't have any further queries and the suggestion above answers your ask, please "Accept the answer", This will help us and others in the community as well.
