  1. Option to select Resource-Specific with CLI, PowerShell and Rest API for collect resources logs

    Please add an option to select Resource-Specific with CLI, PowerShell and Rest API for collect resources logs.
    The documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/resource-logs-collect-workspace#select-the-collection-mode shows it's currently not possible to select this destination with a script. So all logs will be stored by default to AzureDiagnostics and we can face some limits with the number of columns of the table.
    It's also recommended by Microsoft to select Resource-Specific target tables, but in our context, we need to be able to do it in an automated fashion. Thanks

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Add the Continous Export function to Log Analytics (as seen in Application Insights) or provide similar functionality

    Still not quite at feature parity between Application Insights and Log Analytics. Both can now set the retention period to 730 days - but if you need to store logs for longer, only Application Insights has a function to do this via Continous Export.

    Ideally, we want to be able to long-term store logs for more than 730 days. We don't necessarily need the analytics aspect, so archive/cold storage in a storage account (or the like) would be perfectly fine over increasing the retention period past 730 days.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. Azure Dashboards should be able to query more than 31 days from Log analytics

    I built a couple dashboards that query data from log analytics to try to compare the current month with the previous month. I set the custom time window on the dashboard to go back far enough to get all the data. But the tiles I have on the dashboard for the previous month all have truncated data in them compared to when I run the same query in the workspace. They aren't showing any logs older than 31 days.

  10. Illegible view of NPM subnets pairs

    In Network Performance Monitor when you go to "Subnetwork links" you see a list of created NPM pairs but just in IP form which is really uncomfortable. Could you add possibility to name these pairs or to tag them and display these tags or names ...anything but not just pure IP addresses because its illegible.
    Thank you.

  11. 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.

  12. Add Proxy property to Heartbeat data type

    Please add a proxy property to the Heartbeat data type. It doesn't have to be the actual TCP socket, it can be a Y/N. Just something that can be queried to definitively identify if an agent has been configured to use a proxy.

    Network changes within firewalled environments can result in agents being quietly cutoff from Log Analytics. When these events occur it may be weeks before someone notices in non-production environments. Hundreds of agents are affected at a time. Proxies are most often required in DMZ's where tcp/443 access to the internet is blocked.

    The ability to query for…

  13. 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.

  15. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.
