Public preview: Auditing of Microsoft support operations in Azure SQL DB and Azure SQL MI

Published date: October 28, 2020

Users spoke, and we listened to the request to surface the audit of Microsoft support operations done through your Azure SQL Database and Azure SQL Managed Instance to monitor activities and changes throughout your organizations. Now in preview, the auditing of Microsoft support operations capability enables you to audit Microsoft support operations when you need to access your servers and/or databases during a support request to your audit logs destination. The use of this capability, along with your auditing, enables more transparency into your workforce and allows for anomaly detection, trend visualization, and data loss prevention. We currently support Log Analytics and Event Hub and are working to support storage accounts soon.
