Sending Activity Logs

Stanislav Zhelyazkov, writing on Cloud Administrator in Azure World discussed how to send Azure Activity Logs to Log Analytics. He developed a policy to deploy with an ARM template on the subscription level. Zhelyazkov wrote:

Not also that role assignments can have description.
