Change Security Event Log settings through group policy?

Hello experts,

Is there a way to modify the security log settings using group policies? I want to increase the log file size for all the users stations and set the events to overwrite as needed instead of the default 7 days for events to overwrite.

The log is getting full on some computers and going 1 by 1 is very time consuming.

Thanks.

Hope this is what you're asking:

Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Event Log

Maximum Security Log Size is an option on the right.

Yes, was also looking for the retention method, which can be defined there as well.

Thanks Adam.
