Monitor log profile should have activity logs for global services and all regions

Description

Configure the log profile to export activities from all Azure supported regions/locations including global. This rule is evaluated against all resource locations that Fugue has permission to scan.

Remediation Steps

Azure CLI

  • To enable activity logs for global services and all regions:

Terraform

  • Ensure that an azurerm_monitor_log_profile contains the following:

    • locations = [<list of every Azure region storing resources and “global”>]

resource "azurerm_monitor_log_profile" "example" {
  name = "default"

      "southcentralus",
      "westus",
      "francecentral",
