You need to configure the OMS log analytics workspace to receive backup related data from Azure Recovery Services vaults. To do so, loggin into Azure portal –> Click “Monitor” service –> “Diagnostic settings” in Settings section –> Specify the relevant Subscription, Resource Group and Recovery Services Vault. In the Diagnostic settings window, as shown below, in addition to specifying a storage account, you can select “Send data to log analytics” and then select the relevant OMS workspace. You can choose any existing log analytics workspace such that all vaults pump the data to the same workspace
Please select the relevant log, “AzureBackupReport” in this case, to be sent to the log analytics workspace. Click “Save” to save the setting.
## Solution overview and deployed resources
Upon deploying the solution, you would view an overview tile which reflects backup jobs and their status.
Clicking on the solution would let you explore Alerts, backups, restores, Cloud Storage and active data source details.
You can click on each tile to get more details about the queries used to create it and you can configure it as per your requirement. Clicking further on values appearing in the tiles will lead you to Log analytics screen where you can raise alerts for configurable event thresholds and automate actions to be performed when those thresholds are met/crossed.
