Ensure that the Log Profile created for your Azure cloud activity log is configured to collect logs for all the control & management activity categories, i.e. "Write", "Delete" and "Action" for security and compliance purposes. A Log Profile controls how the activity log is exported and retained within your Microsoft Azure cloud account.
By configuring your account Log Profile to collect logs for "Write", "Delete" and "Action" event categories ensures that all the control and management activities performed on your Azure subscription are exported. These logs can be extremely useful for security and compliance auditing.
Note: When the Azure Log Profile is created using Microsoft Azure Management Console (Azure Portal), by default it is configured to export all activity log event categories. However, when the Log Profile is created using the Azure Command Line Interface (CLI), the user can explicitly choose which of the event categories to export.
