    Hi John, first place I would look is to Microsoft and their list of documents that detail how to configure and set up monitoring in Azure.  Here is a link to get you started to their documentation: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/cloud-services-dotnet-diagnostics/

    Thanks but I read this page which you provide but I didnt find how should I do the auditing ?

    it is not that simple...

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/azure/dn186185.aspx

    This configure settings was configured and deployod  from the cloud service in VS when you click on cloud service click on your MVC project and click on specific role 

    and than you have screen of cofigure /settings /endpoints etc ,and you put the setting like key val in the setting view.

    when you deploy your service to azure you see it under

    go to the azure portal and click on cloud services ->choose cloud service -> click on configure . you see the settings(key val) which you put in VS like in mentiond above.

    1.User can change this settings in the portal ,I want to track just it(audit) ,how ?

    2.if I change some configuration there is event the fires it?if yes which event?

    3.I see in the managment portal in the logs the changes which have operation ID ,there is a way to find the addional detailes by operation ID?

    If I go the the managment services I see all the changes in the azure service (caller id ,operation ID etc and there is option to see detailes ) ,there is a way to see which parameter in the conifg was change and to what (which key was changed and what is the old value )?

    There is a link in that article that discusses how to collect logging data: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/gg433048.aspx 

    2.if I change some configuration there is event the fires it?if yes which event?

    I would actually need to see this logging data to offer you some information on that

    3.I see in the managment portal in the logs the changes which have operation ID ,there is a way to find the addional detailes by operation ID?

    That could be the section on tracing the flow of the azure application but I'm not 100% sure: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/azure/hh411529.aspx

    Thanks,

    i've read articale and more...but didnt find how to do that.

    Currently the issue is that if I change some data in the cloud service configuration screen and I go to the managment services and click on logs

    I see the changes for specific timestamp which is OK,the problem is that this data is generic you have there operation ID caller name and etc like following

    but what I need to know which field was changed and what was the old value.How should I do that ?

    I found the this which when I change conifgration I see it in the operation name

    ChangeDeploymentConfigurationBySlot

    But how should I use it I didnt understand it...Im new to azure ...

    First, it sounds like I am unable to help you since for one I am unable to get to azure. Second, unless it generates some type of log files or stores it in a data source somewhere, we'd be hard pressed to evaluate the data.  Third, we would need to understand its logging format.  I'm going to back away and let someone with a bit more experience try to answer your question.
