  1. Collect SQL ERROR logs into Log Analytics

    This feature will enable teams to ingest SQL ERROR logs on IaaS servers into log analytics and develop better alerting and dashboards. The current file extension limitation in log analytics prevent SQL ERROR logs to be discovered by the MMA agent.

  2. Insufficient information in the azure activity logs

    When the modification is performed on the resource the logs should have the change history on what exactly the is changes are happened i.e after and before. But unfortunately this information is not available in the logs ingested in the log analytics.

  5. Log Analytics Log Purge

    As per compliance requirement we need share report when Log are purged based on Log Analytics retention period. It will be great if we have dashboard or report which can help to provide details of log deletion/purged as per log retention policy.

  6. Log analytics to support multi dimensional metrics input from API Management Service

    Sending multi-dimensional metrics via diagnostic settings is not currently supported. Metrics with dimensions are exported as flattened single dimensional metrics, aggregated across dimension values.
    For example: The 'Requests' metric on an API Management Service can be explored and charted on a per hostname. However, when exported via diagnostic settings the metric only is shipped for the main hostname.

    The Diagnostics and Metrics team did confirm that the Incoming messages metric is multi-dimensional. And because of this when sending the data to Log Analytics it is flattened or filtered. The API Management Service team was trying to get it to work…

  7. Timezone conversion to custom log ingestion for Linux OS

    As per the following docs, currently time zone conversion is not supported for time stamps in the logs for Linux OS. Then, even if you use timestamp "yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssK" as delimiter to specify TimeGenerated in loacl time, the value on TimeGenerated is recorded as UTC.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/data-sources-custom-logs

    It would be great if timezone conversion is supported also for Linux OS.

  8. query sql directly from log analytics

    Azure Log Analytics needs the ability (like the externaldata command) to be able to directly query a relational sql table to bypass the 64 megabyte lookup limit.

  9. The semicolon is being replaced by a space. ';' is replaced by space in Azure Log Analytics for Kubernetes logs

    Please add this feature, currently this is by design for the current LA ingestion pipeline. From the beginning, the ingestion service has internally replaced following characters for the container-related log messages:


    • ; (Semicolon)


    • \t (Tab)

  10. Scope Custom Logs in Log Analytics Workspace

    Apply custom log collection to specific agents (scoping). If the log file does not exist on certain agents an access denied message gets posted in the custom log every few minutes.

  13. diagnostic settings delete

    Allow deletion of diagnostic-settings AuditLogs even when the destination resource is deleted.

    e.g
    create a storage account with audit logs enabled
    delete the storage account
    then the audit log diagnostic setting is not shown anymore via
    az monitor diagnostic-settings list

    but when you want to deploy the SA including the audit logs again it will fail because the logs are still there

  14. Linux agent installed + updated by a repository

    Our security policies are being violated by Azure's Log Analytics agent because it is installed and updated by a process outside of the regular repository method. We would like to have it done by adding a repository to the system and updating it like we would any other system package (whether this is rpm or deb based).

  15. HDinsight: Can we enable Azure monitor through .net SDK

    We want to enable Azure monitor specifically for HDinsight cluster, As I can see the way to add workspace to the HDInsight cluster through portal/CLI/PowerShell is given but not for SDK,
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/hdinsight/hdinsight-hadoop-oms-log-analytics-tutorial

    Can enabling through SDK we can see in future ?

  16. Backup / Dump Log Analytics Workspace

    We was thinking on the ability to dump a Log Analytic workspace on a storage account or other resource.
    In some cases the requirements involve retaining the data for more than two years.
    Some place for keep the information, even on a cold storage was great

  17. Enable configuration of multiple log analytics workspaces for linux agent

    Currently the log analytics agent for Linux only supports the configuration of one log analytics workspace. It'd be of advantage to be able to send the logs to multiple log analytics workspaces.

    We have a probably quite common setup among mid to large size enterprises that consists of hub(s) and multiple subscriptions connected to them. For Update Management we are utilizing Azure Automation which should be controlled through our hub(s). Azure Automation therefore requires to be linked to one log analytics workspace in the same subscription.

    At the same time the development / operations teams that make use of the…

  20. Incorrect response codes in Log Analytics for WordPress apps hosted in App Service

    We have a couple WordPress apps hosted in an Azure App Service and MySQL database. We've enabled Application Insights which does capture some information that can be useful.

    Upon building dashboards with this data, we've noticed all the http response codes collected are 200 even though in the raw logs some responses are 404 (page not found). This makes the information when attempting to build useful dashboards invalid and/or inconsistent when we want to capture failures.

    Support ticket was raised but advised WordPress and App Insights is not supported. Please either remove the option for the plugin or provide support…
