Workplace from Facebook (using Azure Functions) connector for Microsoft Sentinel

The Workplace data connector provides the capability to ingest common Workplace events into Microsoft Sentinel through Webhooks. Webhooks enable custom integration apps to subscribe to events in Workplace and receive updates in real time. When a change occurs in Workplace, an HTTPS POST request with event information is sent to a callback data connector URL. Refer to Webhooks documentation for more information. The connector provides ability to get events which helps to examine potential security risks, analyze your team's use of collaboration, diagnose configuration problems and more.

This data connector uses Azure Functions based on HTTP Trigger for waiting POST requests with logs to pull its logs into Microsoft Sentinel. This might result in additional data ingestion costs. Check the Azure Functions pricing page for details.

(Optional Step) Securely store workspace and API authorization key(s) or token(s) in Azure Key Vault. Azure Key Vault provides a secure mechanism to store and retrieve key values. Follow these instructions to use Azure Key Vault with an Azure Functions App.


This data connector depends on a parser based on a Kusto Function to work as expected which is deployed as part of the solution. To view the function code in Log Analytics, open Log Analytics/Microsoft Sentinel Logs blade, click Functions and search for the alias WorkplaceFacebook and load the function code or click here on the second line of the query, enter the hostname(s) of your Workplace Facebook device(s) and any other unique identifiers for the logstream. The function usually takes 10-15 minutes to activate after solution installation/update.
