  1. Change a parameter in the URL of the Workbook whose query contains some parameters

    Currently, we can generate an URL for the workbook. However, it contains only the information of workbook name. However, some customers configure the workbook with Kusto query which contains some parameters. In such a case, it would be great if the parameter could be set in URL of the workbook.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Provide soft delete function for data, not just Workspace

    Currently it is possible to immediately and irrevocably delete data stored in a Log Analytics Workspace by reducing the data retention setting. This provides the possibility for user error - with increased probability via automated deployment routes - to lose significant amounts of data.

    This concern could be reduced if it were possible to set a soft delete option for the data, akin to the way it works in Key Vault, meaning a two-stage 'purge' would be required, making it harder to accidentally remove historic data.

  5. Performance counter data for on Prem Analysis services is not populating

    I have on prem Analysis services installed and the VM is connected to log analytics workspace to send perf data. I do have MSAS12 perf counters available but these counters seems to be collecting data only for older versions of Analysis Services and not the lates. For eg: MS Analysis Services 2017.

    Any idea how I can pull perf counters of Analysis services 2017?

  6. What should we do for only searching VM resource logs?

    Customer is using 'Use resource or workspace permissions' in workspace.

    But customer wants to access only one VM resource in Log Analytics log search portal.

    What should we do for realizing request?

    I think we should use Custom Role for Log Analytics workspace.

    But I could not find correct action for Custom Role.

  7. Ability to set Daily volume cap using Azure Powershell or AzureRM template

    Currently there is no other way to set "Data volume cap" for Log Analytics workspace except Azure Portal. When mass deploying workspaces for our customers it is very inconvenient.
    Powershell cmdlet similar to Set-AzureRmApplicationInsightsDailyCap would work.

  8. Add the ability to regenerate individual keys (primary or secondary) via REST APIs

    The API claims to have a way of regenerating keys but it only seems to allow regenerating both keys at the same time. This defeats the purpose of having two keys since that is supposed to enable you to use one key while regenerating the other. This is also at odds with what is exposed in the Azure portal - where the primary and secondary keys each have a hyperlink to regenerate and seem to be able to regenerate independently.

    Link to API - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/loganalytics/workspaces%202015-03-20/regeneratesharedkeys

  9. Ability to configure permissions on log types

    We need the ability to configure permissions or RBAC on log types as we want our developers to be able to query certain logs but block them from querying other logs that might have sensitive data.

  10. Please add a removal/delete option for Machines and VMs.

    We accidentally ran the MMASetup-AMD64.exe on a desktop computer instead of the intended VM. Now that desktop computer is added to our automation group, but we can't remove it very easily. It'd be really nice if a remove or delete option were available in the GUI and we didn't have to code a removal through powershell for something that could be simpler.

  11. Enable in UK West

    Flow logs have to use storage in the same region as the NSG, but then Traffic Analytics recommends that you use an OMS/LA workspace that's in the same region as your storage to minimise data egress.

    If you have an NSG in UK West, then that's impossible as OMS/LA is not available there.

    Either enable LA in UK West or provide free data egress for this purpose.

  12. Powershell to manage Custom Fields

    There is no Powershell cmdlet to manage Custom Fields on OMS Portal. So no way to automate this process. Isn't it?

  13. Embedding Log Analytics Solutions to Third Party Web Apps

    Possibility of embedding OMS dashboards from solutions for external Web Apps for customers.
    There is the possibility of collecting data from OMS and integrate with Power BI and later embed this, but it is "raw" log information, not the pre-made dashboards in OMS solutions

  14. Choosing default time range

    Would like an option to choose the default time range.

    It seems it defaults to last 24 hours and on some of my dashboards it shows me no data, but as soon as I change it to 7 days I see the data.

  18. Add support for days in alerts feature for both alert frequency and alert suppression

    We need more flexibility for the alert triggers that allows both weekly and monthly triggers. Basically you should add support for days triggers and perhaps also a date trigger would be great.
