Hello,
I'd like to find out how to send activity logs for multiple subscriptions to Azure Sentinel.

I found in the docs https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/sentinel/connect-azure-activity that the data source can be enabled within a few clicks in the console. But how would you do this programmatically for multiple subscriptions? I found that there are PS Cmdlets and Azure CLI command flags for doing this for Azure AD, ATP, and O365 data connectors, but not activity logs.

    As you mentioned there does not seem to be an option send activity logs to Azure Sentinel programmatically yet. Usually the instructions like the one you linked would go over the various possible methods.

    If you would like to request this capability, you can create a feature request in user voice.

    Following up. When you activate the Azure Activity connector for Sentinel you enable a tenant-level policy. It will activate all current and future subscriptions to send activity logs to Sentinel. No need to setup diagnostics manually.

    The following link may help if the connector instructions in the portal are unclear.
