  1. OMS ability to monitor & Alert on Azure changes such as Tags

    It would be great if it were possible to audit changes on Azure such as Tags, which we could then use to trigger runbooks. Currently I use a lot of time running automation runbooks on schedules to look for these changes. Auditing of any change in the portal would be great, then we would be empowered to alert on specific conditions.

  3. Allow for performance data to be monitored by the VMware solution

    Add the possibility to monitor performance data as well in VMware environments, both for the hosts and for the VM´s.

    Examples for what I would want to look at with the solution;
    * Are there any snapshots? If so, what´s the size and age of these?
    * Show information about the datastores connected, both the size and usage details (free space, used space etc.)
    * Host CPU and memory utilization
    * VM CPU and memory utilization

  6. OMS Agent should not consume excessive CPU/memory space

    The OMS Agent for Linux takes up a large amount of CPU/memory space, which causes issues when running on Kubernetes clusters. Azure Security Center automatically installs the OMS Agent on all VMs, and users are frustrated by having to uninstall it in order to regain the CPU/memory space. The OMS Agent should not take up an overly large amount of CPU/memory space.

  7. 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.

  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. Analyse logs from App Service in the OMS portal

    Hello,

    I would like to Analyse logs from an App Service in the OMS portal, right now it's posible to save those logs in a storage account but this one can't be linked to the Log Analytics for an analysis in the OMS portal.

  10. Target Solution packs to group of computers/data centers

    I don't want to use ALL solution packs on ALL onboarded servers. At the moment the only workaround is to create workspaces by solution pack and maintain your server list by solution packs.

    1) While Adding a Solution; optionally specify groups to target. (e.g. All; only this group members or All groups except members of this group)
    2) Track data/$$ by solution pack and by servers/user defined groups. This can be used to Alert when a SP or computer/group consumes more than expected-->trigger runbook to unload SP on the server.
    3) Configure data flow by restricting (Servers; solutions;group of servers;…

  11. 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.

  12. HTTP / PowerShell Capability to Regenerate Primary and Secondary OMS Keys

    Currently the OMS Portal has the capability to regenerate the OMS primary and secondary keys. This must be a manual step. This is quite dangerous as the URL is open to the Internet - if anyone gets to know either key then they can do a HTTP POST into our OMS workspace. We need to be able to regenerate these over HTTP or PowerShell.

    There isn't any option of regenerating via the Azure Portal and I can't find any API that might allow this to be done. The only closest match I found is the 2015-11-01-preview API which is now…

  13. Building tiles and views based on saved Analytics queries

    At the Moment we have to design a query in Analytics Portal, saving it for later re-use and then copying the query into View designer to visualize the result.
    It would be really helpful to be able to base views on saved queries. Instead of pasting the query it would be helpful to simply select a saved query. If then someone Edits the query the visualization gets automatically updated.

  14. Add Resource Group Tags to Power BI Azure Consumption

    Add another table to Power BI Azure Consumption to allow relating resource usage costs to tags defined at the Resource Group level.

    Each record This table would have a resource group. Each column would be the tag name. See suggested layout, attached.

    This allows the tag hierarchy / inheritance which so many others have asked for in other feedback requests.

  15. 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.

  16. Support a service tag which denotes the IP address space for Log Analytics

    Currently, we don't support a service tag which denotes the IP address space for Azure Log Analytics service. There are scenarios where a customer would like to allow only the outbound traffic to the Log Analytics service by using NSG. Such customers are requires to whitelist all IP addresses of Azure datacenter. However the customers need to update the settings of NSG every week because there's a possibility that the Azure IP ranges are changed once a week. This requires complicated procedures and high-maintenance. So, it would be great if the service tag for the Log Analytics service is supported…

  17. DCR: powershell cmdlet to collect activity log across subscription in Log analytics workspace

    We have activity log solution here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/collect-activity-logs
    cx want to do the below steps by powershell command:
    - Configure activity logs to go to your Log Analytics workspace.
    - In the Azure portal, select your workspace and then click Azure Activity log.
    - For each subscription, click the subscription name.

    Currently we don't have any powershell commands to do the same, as I know, we have some powershell command to enable custom logs in log analytics, hence please also provide similar command to connect activity logs in workspace across subscription.

    Currently, you can add your users fro the ‘settings’ page and invite either LiveID or AAD users/groups to access the workspace directly from https://preview.opinsights.azure.com/

    You can have direct agents and SCOM management groups that live in different subscriptions than the one the workspace is linked to. The only scenario that is limited at the moment is ingesting data from storage accounts (WAD data). We are investigating for how many this is important enough to allow cross-subscription reading of Storage accounts.

    Also read this other thread for an additional requirement we have heard in this area http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519233-improve-multitenancy-for-managed-services-provider#comments

  20. One Microsoft Client

    One Microsoft Cloud Client
    Please provide one client for azure (or maybe also office365) with the possibility to expand this client with features.

    Actually we have to install many small Clients for intunes, several for OMS and so on.

    Maybe it could be one intunes managed client-Software and if there are for example on one machine OMS-features needed, then we can just choose which Feature on which client and the client downloads and installs everything. Same for AIP, Dynamics Plugins and so on.

    Thanks, Martin
