Microsoft Azure Audit Compliance File Reference

Azure refers to a series of Microsoft cloud services including virtual machine hosting, data storage, and hosted versions of IIS, MS SQL, and Active Directory. The Active Directory service is also used for Windows InTune and Office 365.

These services are accessible through REST APIs which accept and return either JSON or XML. Authentication is through OAuth 2.0. Microsoft recommends using an account for authentication rather than a trusted certificate.

The Microsoft Azure plugin provides debug information when the Plugin Debugging scan policy preference is set. The debug log is attached to scan results.

The plugin supports evaluation of output by regex, expect, not_expect, known_good, and json_transform keywords.
