  1. Cannot display Threshold

    Cannot display Threshold

    When we execute the following query, Threshold will not be displayed.
    If we specify "Computer" on "summarize", the Y-axis will be plotted using the "avgCounterValue" values of all computers.
    At this time, the Threshold value is not avg
    CounterValue, therefore, it is not plotted on the graph.

    Perf
    | where TimeGenerated > ago(30m)
    | where CounterName == "% Processor Time" and ObjectName == "Processor" and InstanceName == "_Total"
    | summarize avg(CounterValue) by bin(TimeGenerated, 30s), Computer
    | extend Threshold = 10
    | render timechart

    If query for a single computer, the threshold will be displayed. However, it…

  2. Source Control Integration for Log Analytics Queries

    We spend a lot of time to improve our custom log analytics queries over time. Further we have solutions with dozens of queries and functions. It would help us a lot if we could synchronized saved queries with some form of source control (similar to Azure Automation). Currently the only option I know about is to export and import queries.

  3. Add a way to keep Azure app insights logs to Local Time Permanently

    App insights Rest api using UTC time stamp by default. Please create a way to configure time like CST or EST based on requirement we can use in App insights

    Thank you for your query, can you please help share more details on your scenario. Currently the feasibility to display in Local time or any other time zone, is that not helping your scenario. Just wanted to get more details on the scenario so that our team can evaluate accordingly.

  4. 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.

  5. Wrap text for a long line of log message

    I would like to be able to see the entire text of the message in long lines, so as not to open and scroll this message

  6. Export Query Results to JSON

    Please support exporting the results of Log Analytics queries to JSON format. Exporting to CSV and Power BI are currently supported but I would also like to see export to JSON.

  7. ANSI colour coding in log messages

    Many logging frameworks we are using use ANSI colour escape sequences to provide colour. These look fine in a console but when they get to log analytics, they show as the raw escape sequence like [96m.

    We can turn off the colour to workaround this but it would be good to see support for it in Log Analytics.

  8. Respect the indentation/tabs in the logs

    Our apps are currently logging request and response using indented JSON however Log Analytics removes all the indentation and pulls the text to the left which makes it difficult to understand.

  9. timestamp last collection only for all queries

    There should be the possibillity to run query with the timestamp last data collection only whenever it was. ago or now-x not helpful and not correct for example on performance counters like free diskspace, or alternate have a filter option last timestamp per server, if you have the same server more as one time as result. Example timestamp perf counter >=1h. same server more as one time. I need only last collection.

  10. Save Column Selections Along With Queries/Favorites

    The log search and ability to save queries/favorites is looking good. However, please include the column filters, column positions, and Display Time setting in the saving of queries, so that each time we return to a saved query we don't need to re-configure all of those settings to achieve the desired view. Thank you!

  11. Ability to use back button to navigate back to previous query in Azure Log Analytics

    Currently the back button can't be used to navigate back to the last query in the new Azure Portal log analytics interface.
    There is no way of navigating back to a previous query which would be very useful if drilling down into a query and then wanting to revert.

  12. Skip operator for Query Search

    Old version Log Analytics has 'Skip' operator.
    But now, New version of Log Analytics Query does not have 'Skip' operator.

    I want this feature.
    Because when we use Query via REST API, for limitation about Log Analytics API, we cannot download all logs at one time.
    So, we must execute API many again and again.

    If there is 'skip' operator, I can use 'skip' and 'limit' for repeat.
    Now because there is no 'skip' operator, I don't get log from Log Analytics via REST API.

  13. 'render timechart' should support logarithmic y-scale

    Currently I need to manually exclude one series that has especially high values from my timechart. It means that the automatic scale has a very high max which means that the other series are not easily viewable.

    I'd like a parameter to 'render timechart' that lets me specify a log y scale, it will help all series to be visible.

    It's a fairly common feature in data visualization generally.

    I actually want this for Application Insights Analytics (https://feedback.azure.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/14110047-add-logarithmic-scale-to-charts). I'm not sure the right place for these requests now that there is standard Log Analytics Query Language.

  14. Filters in OMS

    It would be great if you could provide a set of entities without case sensitive names, or at least provide a set of entities that do not have the same name. I have found clientIps and clientIPs ..... they are different!

    A bit difficult to filter !

  15. custom field based on regex

    sorry if this has been asked I searched but could not find anything similar.

    would love to be able to create a custom field based on a regex. Like I have csUsername as a field but I want to know the domain of the users not the email address, the stuff after the @ is this possible or are you working on it.

    love oms so far,I hopefully I didn't miss something

    ps this doesn't need to be a regex could be things like split,trim,end, lastindexof, etc..

  16. Line Number for Syntax

    Whenever I make an error in a Log Search syntax, it tells me a line number, but I have no easy way of finding that line number or position in the editor. Is there a sytax checker that would provide that information?

  18. Log Search is slow

    Some searches seem very slow. For example, try
    Type=SecurityEvent (EventID="4624") for the last 7 days and it never completes. I do see an 'Internal Server Error' in the UI, but it give no details.

  19. More Useful tiles in View Designer

    Please, add more view dashboards to be used inside View Designer or allow us to use create/customize them in a HTML-ish way. Displaying data with multiple columns as a table is a nightmare, espacially if you don't have a number/timestamp column, but that's the most required data; content is unreadable.

  20. Right Click Paste

    The right click menu is missing paste in the new Log Analytics blade and the Log Analytics advanced portal. Copy and Cut are there, no paste.
