  1. Hard-delete option for Log Analytics workspaces

    We're building immutable infrastructure for our product and would like to delete/destroy any resource on-demand. Unfortunately we noticed the Log Analytics workspaces use a "soft-delete" which gives us the ability to recover workspaces for a certain amount of time.

    Although this is a nice feature, it also limits us in our ability to destroy and create workspaces at any given time. Therefore we would like to propose a "Hard-delete" option which needs to be configured explicitly when deleting a workspace.

  2. View surrounding logs

    Kibana has an amazing feature, where you can view surrounding logs to the current log that you are investigating.
    Could we get this in Log Analytics.

  3. Ability to see what resources support Resource-Specific Diagnostics

    Currently we aren't able to determine which resources support Resource-Specific Collection Mode. It is buried in the documentation for each resource: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/resource-logs-collect-workspace It would be gratefully beneficial to have a complete list seeing Microsoft is recommending users to switch to this mode for their resources where applicable due to the 500 field limit on the AzureDiagnostic Table

  4. Want to display the graphs added to the Tile directly on the dashboard from View Designer.

    Hello,

    Now, we have to create query and use "Pin to dashboard" when wants to show the graphs on dashboard.
    However, View Designer can create easily some graphs.
    It is very effective if we can paste this graph directly on the dashboard.

  5. Add all the render operations from the Kusto query language

    As of today the "with" render operator does not work in Log Analytics.
    example: | render timechart with(ymin=0)

    This will not force the y-axis to start at 0 if the values in the graph are higher than 0. It would be very good if it was possible to use all these operators that are listed in the documentation when using Log Analytics and when pinning the graphs to the dashboard.

    Thanks for the feedback. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  6. Color customization in log analytics chart

    A feature to customize the color of the charts should be available, as the default colors don't make any sense in many scenarios (green, blue, etc). Furthermore, when publishing the charts into a dashboard, the colors and chart shape are changed again (from pie to donut and from green and blue to dark blue and light blue).
    The ability to choose the colors should be added to the "render" method and consistency between the actual chart in log analytics and the published chart in the dashboard are very important features that should be available.

  7. NPM agent bandwidth utilization

    Getting ready to install the NPM Agent on about 500 Servers in my customers on premises environment but we need to be able to tell them approximately how much bandwidth this agent will be using we know that you can tell the NPM Agent to use no more than 5% of the CPU but we do not know how much bandwidth it will be using to send the gathered data to the Log Analytics workspace.

  8. Allow adding custom AD user attributes for AD and Sharepoint Analytics

    We have attributes like Market ID per user , synced to Azure.
    Custom user attributes should be possible to sync to Analytics so you can use for queries , usage reports and so on.
    If not in you have to build a second loop, identify user, identify user related custom attribute , a mess for large tenants.
    At the end the same for the other integrations like Exchange, Sharepoint Analytics required

  9. Add Tenant root management group into Activity log's drop down list

    We can't select Tenant root management group in Activity log's "Management group" drop down list.

    Customer can apply policy on Tenant root management group. And the activity log should record the policy change on Tenant root management group.

    Please add Tenant root management group into Activity log's drop down list. So that we can check the activity log of Tenant root management group

  10. Please DO NOT RETIRE the demo site: https://portal.loganalytics.io/demo#/query/main

    For log analytics, there is a demo site: https://portal.loganalytics.io/demo#/query/main, which is very useful for testing purpose since it has a lot of data.

    And now I see it will be retired on September 2nd, 2019, please keep it alive.

  11. Request to add BMC Remedy partner type in ITSM Connection

    Hi Team,

    Could you please add BMC Remedy partner type in ITSM connection in LogicApps as this connection is not available which is commonly used tool in most of the software companies.
    Adding this connector will help us to automatically creates remedy tickets whenever there is a failure in ADF or if any component reaches threshold limits

  12. Send logs for all Office 365 audit log entries/schemas

    Currently O365 logs are only collected for AzureActiveDirectory, Exchange, SharePoint and OneDrive workloads. Please add support for other audit log schemas as well, eg. the ones that are exposed via Office 365 Management Activity API: Teams, PowerBI, Sway, Yammer, ...

  13. Enhance Azure Logs to include information that helps manage Usage and Content Creation management

    the Logs are good to manage/view access, security but is pretty useless for managing usage especially from a content creation view point.

    FileAccessed basically includes every possible method of access including when webparts show file previews of multiple files.

    Users are getting marked as FileAccessed despite not actually accessing the file. There needs to be additional information about how the file was accessed. e.g. downloaded(completed), SPO Webpart, Search Result View or OfficeFatClient, OfficeWebClient etc.

    FilePreviewed and FileAccessed are both logged in all circumstances so there is no method to distinguish between preview and actually accessed.

    This is really painful if…

  14. Collect Log Analytics Logs by vNet not through internet.

    We would like to collect logs without going through the internet.
    We need to be able to connect some URLs on the Azure Datacenter via the Internet.
    Communication is encrypted and URLs are fixed, but important data such as security logs are sent, so it is more secure if we can collect it simply by connecting to vNet.
    If this feature is implemented, we can collect more important data such a customer data and audit information.

  15. Retrieve the portal time span and use it inside the kusto query

    I am trying to access the time range selected from portal and use it inside the kusto query to show some metric (% uptime of a specific api using our custom logic).

    Documents does not mention any variable or function that we will help to access the time range selected from portal.

    It would be helpful to have a magic variable to see the time range selected from portal.

  16. Resource health data on log analytics

    Currently we can pass activity log data to log analytics to monitor and manage activity logs, but this data is limited. If resource health alerts is passed, it will be easier to manage, set up alerts and take action on it. Currently resource health alerts can be configured only on particular resoruce section or via arm template, so for managing multiple resources it would be ideal to pass this data to a log analytics workspace

  17. Rename Log Analytics workspace option

    Option to rename a log analytics work space should be available. Default names kept and does not make sense when used later as workspace already exists.

  18. Multiline log support

    It is very inconvenient when the log comes separately from the stack trace messages, the order of the lines is mixed. This needs to be fixed. Ideally, everything should come in one message in multi lines

  20. Bring back workspace favorites

    The most recent change removed one of the most helpful features in the UI--the ability to 'favorite' workspaces. Now I have to click SELECT SCOPE,
    then select one of our HUNDREDS of subscriptions, drill down to the Resource Group, find my workspace, select it, and then click Apply.

    Compare that to yesterday when I simply had to click on the favorited workspace in the UI and it would switch in one click.

    I'm all for new UI functionality, but there is quite literally no reason to remove USEFUL features from the product.
