In SharePoint 2010, 2013 & 2016 on-premises we use to work with Audit setting using the approach mentioned in this link @ configure-audit-settings-for-a-site-collection-f5a346d0-ee0f-4412-a5e6-d9b5abaa1012.

But inside our SharePoint online modern communication site i can not find this setting , so my question is if inside SharePoint online we still have the ability to Configure audit settings for a site collection as we used to do in SharePoint on-premises?

SharePoint Online no longer support choosing specific events to edit. Audit Log Reports will still be available as usual but powered by the Unified Audit Pipeline. Please refer to this document for complete list of audited events. Please note that we do not support list items as of now.
