  3. Allow multiple Power BI accounts to be assigned to a workspace

    For shared workspaces connect more than one PowerBI account is very limiting.

  4. Make it possible to rearrange/resize tiles and have more than 2 rows when using high resolution/DPI screens

    It would be great if we can rearrange and resize tiles and have more than 2 rows when using high resolution/DPI screens. An experience similar to the new Azure Portal would be an ideal solution.

  5. allow external users through b2c

    It would be fantastic if external users could be added using an Azure AD B2C solution using claim sets, instead of having to manually add Microsoft Account users for organisations that don't have AAD.

    I am considering Log Analytics for an Operational Intelligence platform for SaaS and Managed Services offerings, and as part of our customer access management solution we will be using Azure AD B2C integrated with Dynamics CRM.

  6. Add non-production pricing tier

    Please add a more affordable pricing for dev/test/qa systems. (that could be with less daily upload limits for them. That way, we could make it more viable to have all our systems(prod/dev/test) in OMS, in a single workspace. It would make it easier as currently, SCOM can only link to a single workspace and duplicating alerts/configuration in multiple workspace is not convenient.

  7. Allow for more than 1 tile for Azure Automation

    currently the automation tile is limited to show the status of a single Automation account,

    there is going to be a need for more than 1 Automation tile as people create more Automation accounts in there subscription.

  8. Add time control to 'overview' page and respect the time selection consistently across scenarios

    I had a lot of confusion over how the Malware tile shows the worst status of last 7 days and neither indicates this in the view nor can be configured with either fewer days or current status. Only by going to the detail pane and selecting a shorter time frame can you see the near-term status. It would be OK if the top level tile said "worst state in last 7 days" and even better if the top level tile saved my preference for example "worst state last 24 hours".

    If you notice the more recent IP’s are starting to provide information with what time the data refers to. There might never be a ‘global’ time window that all scenarios can snap to, but we are trying to make the tiles more informative as to what period they are showing.

    Also in ‘my dashboard’ (where there IS a global time selector) you will have to deal with the time dimension, which can’t always be global – see the consideration that Stas wrote on his blog here https://cloudadministrator.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/system-center-advisor-restarted-time-matters-in-dashboard-part-6/

  9. Ability to Add Computer to Group

    Need the ability to create and add computers to groups in the portal without a dependency on a search query, Active Directory, or SCCM. Manually adding computers to groups would allow for queries against a list of machines that make up an application or site without a good naming convention in place. I am yet to meet an environment that has a well followed naming convention that makes it easy to filter by searching.

  10. Increase Quota of Custom Fields from 20 to 200

    20 Custom fields too little. I am sure you can increase the quota from 20 to 200 without a sweat :)

  11. Summary email for organisational accounts

    Organisational accounts do not get a summary email, but accounts outside the organisation do. The option is not there in Settings. Could this feature be added please?

  14. Ability to configure user permissions on solutions

    It would be welcomed to see a possibility to configure user permissions on a solution level. Currently if we allow users to an OMS workspace they will see every solution and every data and every log, which is not preferred.

  15. Need more status update than "let it run overnight" "wait several hours"

    Need more status update than "let it run overnight" "wait several hours". It would be great to get additional status. For example: we've successfully connected to your onpremise System Center server. OR you need to setup a connection before we can pull data. OR we're currently pulling data (1GB out of 10GB).

    There are a few different requirements and different things that can happen for each intelligence pack. Some of that troubleshooting needs to be done on-premises (the service doesn’t know what it has never seen…). Refer to our troubleshooting blog post for the latest http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2014/05/29/advisor-error-3000-unable-to-register-to-the-advisor-service-amp-onboarding-troubleshooting-steps.aspx

    Nevertheless, onboarding has been greatly simplified (a few times, leading to GA of the service) in the last year, including the introduction of the ‘Settings’ tile (hub), and the scale of the service has improved to deal with higher data rates (not making you wait too long, basically, see this http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519343-real-time-near-realtime-data-collection ).

    We think we are in a much better place than when you filed this idea, do you agree?

  16. Please add an overview of exactly what data is collected

    Currently it is not clear on exactly what data is collected by which component.
    I want to be able to review the data which is collected by MOMS.
    Like which eventlogs, which performance counters exactly.
    Same goes for the integration packs, show us what is collect, why and how.
    We need this information to decide if data can be collected.
    Maybe and overview of rules and information from each inegration packl.

    In SCOM we can look at rules and telle exactly what is being collected.
    Look at monitors / script and tell exactly what is running on an agent.

    This…

    Thanks for your feedback. Indeed. In SCOM, you can look at those rules.

    The old ‘Configuration Assessment – that was opaque. But all the new solutions just import MP’s whose rules you can see in SCOM, take apart, and study. All in all, we think this is much more transparent approach than the older one… does it make sense?

  17. About update management documentation

    Regarding the operation of Update Management of Log Analytics, Linux has no detailed disclosure information on Windows. We confirmed support and confirmed using yum, but I would like to improve the information on Linux monitoring.

  18. Restrict user access to a computergroup.

    There should be a way to restrict a single user to only be able to see the log files from a single computer group.

    We do plan to evolve the access model in Log Analytics so users will be able to see logs based on permissions. We will use a slightly different model from the one proposed here but the principal is that users will see only logs from machines that they are permissioned to.

  19. tag

    Default Log Analytics contributor access to create alerts.
    I understand RBAC is being worked on currently as OMS merges into ASC/the Azure portal, currently alerts can't be created with Log Analytics Contributor access which should be part of the access.

  20. Settings information

    Please show the subscription ID in the OMS console under settings + the region. It makes it easier to configure a connection from Azure Automation for access the OMS Search API
