You can ship logs available from the Microsoft Graph APIs with Logzio-MSGraph. Logzio-MSGraph is a self-hosted application.

Logzio-MSGraph supports these APIs:

  • Azure Active Directory audit logs
  • Azure Active Directory sign-in logs

There are many other APIs available through Microsoft Graph. If you don’t see your API in the list, please open an issue at GitHub to request it.

To integrate Microsoft Graph and

    Add a Description. We recommend something specific, such as “secret for Logzio-MSGraph integration”.

    In the Expires list, choose Never.

    Click Add.

    Copy the value of the generated secret to your text editor. You’ll need this later.

    You won’t be able to retrieve the secret’s value after you leave this page.

  3. Set the app’s permissions

    Choose API permissions from the side menu, and click Add a permission.

    Select Microsoft Graph > Application permissions.

    Select these items:

    • AuditLog.Read.All
    • Directory.Read.All

    Click Add permissions.

    Only Azure administrators can grant consent for Default Directory. If the Grant admin consent button is disabled, ask your Azure admin to update the setting for you.

  4. Create a configuration file

    Create a configuration yaml file (logzio-msgraph-config.yaml) for Logzio-MSGraph.

    For a complete list of options, see the configuration parameters below.👇

      accountToken: "<<SHIPPING-TOKEN>>"
      listenerUrl: "<<LISTENER-HOST>>"
      pullIntervalSeconds: 300
      tenantId: "<<AD_TENANT_ID>>"
      clientId: "<<APP_CLIENT_ID>>"
      clientSecret: "<<APP_CLIENT_SECRET>>"
    logLevel: INFO


    Replace <<SHIPPING-TOKEN>> with the token of the account you want to ship to.
    Listener URL.
    Replace <<LISTENER-HOST>> with your region’s listener host (for example, For more information on finding your account’s region, see Account region.
    senderParams.fromDisk true
    If true, logs are stored on disk until they’re shipped (see If from-disk=true). If false, logs persist in memory until they’re shipped (see If from-disk=false).
    senderParams.senderDrainIntervals 30
    How often the sender should drain the queue, in seconds.
    Azure Active Directory tenant ID.
    You can find this in the Overview section of the app you registered in step 1.
    Application client ID.
    You can find this in the Overview section of the app you registered in step 1.
    The Application Client Secret you created in step 2.
    azureADClient.pullIntervalSeconds 300
    Time interval, in seconds, to pull the logs with the Graph API.
    logLevel INFO
    Log level for Logizo-MSGraph to omit. Can be one of: OFF, ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG, TRACE, ALL.

    If fromDisk=true

    senderParams.fileSystemFullPercentThreshold 98
    Threshold percentage of disk space at which to stop queueing. If this threshold is reached, all new logs are dropped until used space drops below the threshold. Set to -1 to ignore threshold.
    senderParams.gcPersistedQueueFilesIntervalSeconds 30
    Time interval, in seconds, to clean sent logs from the disk.
    senderParams.diskSpaceCheckInterval 1000
    Time interval, in milliseconds, to check for disk space.

    If fromDisk=false

    senderParams.inMemoryQueueCapacityInBytes 1024 * 1024 * 100
    The amount of memory, in bytes, Logzio-MSGraph can use for the memory queue. Set to -1 for unlimited bytes.
    senderParams.logsCountLimit -1
    The number of logs in the memory queue before dropping new logs. Set to -1 to configure the sender to not limit the queue by logs count.
  5. Download and run Logzio-MSGraph

    You can launch Logzio-MSGraph in a Docker container or as a standalone Java app.

    In a Docker container:

    docker run -d -v $(pwd)/logzio-msgraph-config.yaml:/config.yaml logzio/logzio-msgraph

    Or to run as a standalone Java app, download the latest jar from the release page and run:

    java -jar logzio-msgraph.jar logzio-msgraph-config.yaml

    Logs collected by this integration will have the type Microsoft-Graph

  6. Check for your logs

    Give your logs some time to get from your system to ours, and then open Kibana.

    If you still don’t see your logs, see log shipping troubleshooting.
