  1. 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.

  2. Duplicate computernames cause issues for performance metrics

    We have subscriptions that contain identical VM names in different resource groups. For most data events in OMS this is not a problem since they contain the ResourceID/Resourcegroup name.

    The problem is that for performance metrics no unique information is logged in OMS to distinguish between those VMs. This means for example that when a "Disk full" Alert is triggered from these metrics, there is no way to know from which resource this alert originates.

    Solution: please add resourceID to performance metrics, or at least the MMA agent ID.

  3. resource ID for Linux machines

    Currently the heartbeat info for Linux does not include the resource group or resource id information that is available for windows machines through OMS. This would be very helpful when querying across linux/windows machines.

  4. scroll bar does not work in chrome and Safari

    When going to the OMS Alert list (Overview->Settings) in chrome (Version 61.0.3163.100) and Safari (Version 10.0.3 (12602.4.8)) on MacOS (Version 10.12.3 (16D32)) the scroll bar does not appear on the screen when you have more Alerts than is available in the list. Nor are you allowed to scroll down the list of alerts with a scroll wheel when that component of the screen has focus.
    The Scroll Bar works fine in FireFox (56.0) on the same computer. I have replicated this on multiple MacBook Pro's.

  5. Support for cloning of alerts

    It would be nice, if we could clone existing alert rules in OMS.

    Hi,
    Thanks for you suggestion.
    We are now looking at creating means for making it easier to template, deploy and manage alerts – we’ll incorporate means of cloning alerts in this. Will revert with more details as we progress and roll it out in future updates.

  8. Consolidate OMS Agent and ServiceMap Agent

    Can we get a single agent for this solution? We are getting a lot of push-back on having two install two agents to get this functionality.

    This is something we are actively working on. Note that the two agents will likely never be fully consolidated into a single executable. What we are going to do is make it easier to manage the Dependency Agent so that in most cases, it’s not a separate manual install.

  9. Service Mapping for more than 1 machine

    Service Mapping showing more than a single machine would be useful.

    I'd suggest a query based model. OMS is based on Log Analytics, right ;-) The query should by no means be limited to computers; please allow for querying Log Analytics for processes, port numbers in use etc. etc.

    Similarly it would be beneficial if the diagram could identify and highlight OMS registered machines and not only machines where the dependency agent is installed.

  11. Power BI dataset in PBI desktop

    The PowerBI dataset that OMS creates via the PowerBI OMS export is apparently ONLY available in the PowerBI service (the website). We can't access with PowerBI Desktop, therefore we can't create datamodel or create measurements for the OMS exported dataset. This makes the excel connection completely useless.

  13. Aliases for Connected Computers/Sources

    I would really like to have the ability to assign aliases to computer names in OMS - for instance, having computer name "WIN-2DUHT78" be displayed in OMS as "Production2". Maybe allow filtering/searching using the aliases as well.

  14. Fix Bug in Agent

    We started seeing this error after installing the OMS agent on our servers.

    An unmarshaling policy check was performed when unmarshaling a custom marshaled object and the class {45FB4600-E6E8-4928-B25E-50476FF79425} was rejected.

    A quick search on the internet shows other people have the same error after installing the OMS agent also.

    We’re aware of an issue that can cause this error to be logged when the Update Assessment solution is installed.
    You can check if this is what you’re seeing my temporarily removing the Update Assessment solution and confirming the errors stop.

    The Update Assessment solution functionality is not affected and you can safely ignore this error.

  15. Incorrect CCE-38444-6 Baseline Check

    When reviewing Azure Log Analytics Baselines and review CCE-38444-6 it always shows as failing the audit

    Digging deeper it looks like it is Expecting a Result of Disabled when actually Disabled is 0 due to this registry key being a DWORD value and Not STRING

    See Screenshot Below

  16. linux

    Could we see more documenation around the Linux OMS log forwarding function, and how to troubleshoot when things start to go wrong. I think this would be an excellent resource.

    I've been working with OMS, using a linux (CentOS7) based agent to forward syslogs events to my OMS linux agent, and having that host route the relevant log events into OMS.

    Having had some experience with logstash, I spotted that the architecture was based around fluentd, so I had a good grasp of what I was working with. I also have a decent level of unix experience.

    With that said…

  17. Change a saved search (hassle free)

    Add the ability to change a saved search, without having to remember the exact same name and group to override the existing query. At the same time a rename function would be nice.

  18. Copy Performance Counters Across Workspaces

    Allow Performance Counters to be copied across workspaces. This would allow performance counters to be created and validated in a dev workspace and copied to a production workspace.

    The experience would be similar to reading and saving Saved Queries and Computer Groups.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    We are adding this to the list of upcoming updates to the Office 365 search fields. Please note that we do not update the search fields frequently, so this change will not be visible in a short time.

    Please let us know in case you require other changes in the O365 search fields, so we will consider them before next iteration..

    Thanks!

  20. Current User listed on top bar.

    The current user should be listed on the top right bar along with the ability to log out. It is not important to display the Data Plan.
