  1. 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.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  11. Allow us to create Dashboards and Tiles through the CLI or a script

    It would be nice if we could generate new dashboards for new VMs via a script.

  12. 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.

  13. permission on search queries

    The query management is very native, friendly described, Missing tagging like who is the owner of a query, permissions who can add, modify and delete for a large workspace and with large team, it's horror.
    The query changes should have a version control.

  15. Scope Management Solutions to only Log Analytics

    When adding new solutions to a workspace on the Azure Portal the UI shows all the multiple management solutions which do not apply to the workspace resource i.e. DynaTrace, Nutanix, etc.
    The "Solutions Gallery" in the "Old" OMS Portal is a lot clearer and easier to use.

  16. Restrict user access to a computergroup.

    There should be a way to restrict a single user to only be able to see the log files from a single computer group.

    We do plan to evolve the access model in Log Analytics so users will be able to see logs based on permissions. We will use a slightly different model from the one proposed here but the principal is that users will see only logs from machines that they are permissioned to.

  17. RBAC role/scope for workspace create relative to resource group

    I would like to be able to assign a user to a role at the resource group level (and not subscription level) that would allow that use to create a new workspace

  18. Avoid syslog error if file does not exist in OMS Custom Log configuration to Linux VM

    When a new custom log is collected, syslog errors are generated on systems where it doesn't exist.
    Is it possible to change the OMS agent, to better handle this scenario.
    1. It should be possible from the custom logs to state which VM, this should apply to.
    2. It should be possible for the OMS agent, to check to if the directory exist or not and not flood our syslog with error. This would be better reported on OMS logs.
    E.g. do an ls to check the file, try not to use sudo out right that results in a syslog…

  19. 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

  20. Cloning a view in OMS and then selecting cancel deletes the original view!

    When copying a view by opening it and then clicking "clone" on top of it, selecting "cancel" not only deletes the cloned view but the original one, too!
