  1. Bring back the On-Prem AD Replication Status Tool

    Version 1.0 is expired. The download page for version 1.1 only allows us to download the expired 1.0 version. The "cloud" version in OMS doesn't satisfy all of the same needs as the original version did. This was a very handy tool and I'd like to have it back.

    Cross-post from: https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/304621-active-directory/suggestions/11701692-bring-back-the-on-prem-ad-replication-status-tool

  2. Multi tenancy: Collect Azure Health logs from different Azure tenants

    We manage Azure tenants for multiple companies. We want one central monitoring and automation Workspace to manage all these different tenants.
    Although you can collect data from vm agents in different Azure tenants as well as data from different Office365 tenants it is not possible to get the Azure Health logs from different tenants into one OMS Workspace.

  6. Add support for autorefresh dashboards and session never expire.

    Add support for automatic refresh/session never expore.
    Autorefresh each x seconds on dashboards and main overview Dashboard.

    This will solve the problem when using OMS dashboards as operationcenter with monitors. The sessions expires to often and the content do not autorefresh.

  7. 6 hours SLA on indexing custom log data is a very long time to alert on

    According to this article https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/legal/sla/log-analytics/v1_1/ SLA on indexing log data might take up to 6 hours. OMS has built in alerting that allows you to trigger actions within 5 minutes of data arrival. But if indexing takes more than 5 minutes - then what's the point of creating alert that might trigger on something that is no longer a problem, or not trigger at all if there is real problem. What is the average data indexing time? Log Analytics would be much more useful and have many more applications in real world if that indexing time is much lower. 6…

    You can now monitor Certificate expiration on Azure VMs using [Azure Policy for Guest Configuration](https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/guest-configuration-feature-for-azure-policy-now-in-preview/). When in the policy portal search for policies titled “e x p e r”. We also created a template for Log Analytics that will monitor IIS on any VM with an agent. Checkout an example @ https://github.com/TimSBenjamin/AzMonCertExpireAlert.

    If you still have any queries please let us know. Thank you

  9. Access read only Dashboard directly from URL

    Maybe IT can be (partially) achieved by RBAC but we would like to have the possibility to access a read-only version of the dashboard just bij entering a URL. The dashboard should not have a timeout. this way we can put the dashboard on a big screen (and when the possibility of multiple dashboard is enabled) we kan put multiple big screens on our service desk.

    Access to this dashboard should be restricted by IP address and/or an URL or something like this.

  10. Azure Machine Learning with Log Analytics

    1 on OMS with Azure ML. As organizations lack the ability to mine through mounds of log data to detect trends and determine what services are running well and which services may need help.

    Problem Management is one of the processes that requires Incident/Event data to determine trends. Many organizations struggle with this as they need to have a person look at this data and analyze it. Using OMS Analytics data and pumping to through Azure Machine Learning and providing insights would be valuable to IT organizations.

    This would increase IT Organization’s maturity and drive business value.. I see a…

  11. Improve multitenancy for managed services providers

    Currently we can have one subscription per MG and/or consolidate multiple MGs into one single subscription. What's missing is the ability to have groups of different systems from the same MG to report to different subscriptions. In management as a service scenario for SMB customers it's often impractical to have 1 MG per customer, rather multiple customers are consolidated into one infrastructure (MG) and then access is limited via scoping. Bring this to Advisor, please.

  12. Open up the capacity management pack for other systems/counters without VMM

    Would be great to be able to do some capacity planning on other counters or systems (sql dabatabase, scsm, scom orchestrator). You have a great engine in the backend so please utilize it fully. for example: would be great to be able to import other SCOM data like SQL perf counters so I can do capacity planning on my SQL servers. Or to be able to do capacity planning on physical hosts that are not managed by VMM.

  14. Collect text log files

    Allow for the ability to collect text log files.

    For agent-based collection, it could initially be limited to text log files that are "known" to SCOM through MPs (i.e. SQL Server's ERRORLOG) or with path to the file configurable by the user (from the portal or thru an Authoring Template).

    For collection from a storage account (if you have a way to land the file there on your own) you would have to point at the blob\container.

    Note: This Idea was re-created after having been incorrectly merged.

  15. Need the ability to filter security events before they're collected

    The security SP badly needs:
    - security log filtering so that only specific scenarios can be consolidated to the cloud. Mind don't assume they're connected through OpsMgr, since OpInsights lacks any multitenancy, security scenarios are the first that would need separate workspaces to limit access to the data
    - there are some common scenarios that need to be addressed on the collected data, for example there should be an easy way to discard logons by computer accounts (account ending with $).
    - princing for Security IP risks to put OpInsights out of play, it's way too expensive, a single DC…

    Thank you for you patience,
    Based on your feedback we have completed the work to enable FILTER security events before collection.
    Here is the blog post on this:
    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msoms/2016/11/08/filter-the-security-events-the-oms-security-collects/

    We are working on Solution Targeting feature which will provide you ability to select scope of the computers per each solution. Please expect the public preview later on this year.
    Thanks,
    —Tigran

  16. Real Time Service Change Tracking

    Currently with change tracking only polling every hour, if a service stops and restarts before that next hour poll there would be no indication of it happening and therefor no accurate alerting. Ideally for example I would like a real time alert for a service stopping with an action to restart the service.

  19. Security event logs should be collected

    Security audits should be collected by Advisor. Proper intellignece should be added to query for specific info contained in properties. Some sort of normalization (like ACS does) is welcome / needed.
    Proper reporting is needed as well.
