    • Skip operator for Query Search

      Old version Log Analytics has 'Skip' operator.
      But now, New version of Log Analytics Query does not have 'Skip' operator.

      I want this feature.
      Because when we use Query via REST API, for limitation about Log Analytics API, we cannot download all logs at one time.
      So, we must execute API many again and again.

      If there is 'skip' operator, I can use 'skip' and 'limit' for repeat.
      Now because there is no 'skip' operator, I don't get log from Log Analytics via REST API.

        • Two successive configuration applications from OMS Settings failed

          When I used log search, I found error message about Linux Agent for DSC.

          - Error Message
          Two successive configuration applications from OMS Settings failed – please report issue to github.com/Microsoft/PowerShell-DSC-for-Linux/issues

          I found that this issue is discussed in below:
          https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerShell-DSC-for-Linux/issues/258

          But the date of fix is unknown.
          Error is very noisy for collecting log from Linux Agent.
          So, I want to know the date of fix as soon as possible.
          I want to decrease this error.

          • Custom Log feature for log rotate

            Now, Log Analytics can not collect custom log which file is rotated by log rotation.
            But log rotation is necessary for collection log on OS.
            So, for mitigation we cannot unable to turn off log rotation.
            So, I request to add new request about Custom Log for collecting Log Rotation files.

            • Show database connections in Service Map

              It would be extremely useful to be able to map an IIS worker process making a connection to a particular database rather than just a SQL Server.

              An example, a web server with 5 (this could easily be 100 )unique and unrelated sites. These sites make connection to different databases, some of which are on a shared sql server and others may be on other shared sql servers. The existing solution will only show a connection to the sql server process, which makes the map less accurate than it could be.

              Could the databases be presented grouped under the SQL…

                • Populate ComputerIP field with agent manager Computer IP address

                  ComputerIP is populated with the IP Address from which Azure Log Analytics is receiving data. For nodes behind a firewall/proxy or OMS Gateway this mean to have the external IP Address of the proxy.
                  ComputerIP must contain IP(s) information collected by the Agent on the computer hosting it to enable Compliance and Security Scenario on the console.
                  RemoteIPAddress could be added as the External IP address for proxy based agents or will contains the same address of the ComputerIP for agents not behind a proxy/firewall/Gateway.
                  This have a serious impact on compliance in the actual implementation.

                    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

                      • Add assessments for Database Mail and SQL Server Agent history

                        If the SQL Server Agent does not have a mail profile configured, it logs errors into the SQL Agent log.

                        This should have raised a recommendation to configure the profile.

                              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.

                                Currently it only appears like I can view systems connected in service map in 1-hour windows. This makes it difficult to see what is being used having to go days/months back in 1-hour chunks. A total view of all connections would be great, or at the very least in 1 month chunks.

                                  • Make Container Logs optional / configurable in Service Fabric Analytics Solution

                                    Make Container Logs optional / configurable in Service Fabric Analytics Solution.

                                    I'm using a Service Fabric Cluster without the Container Feature.
                                    But the Service Fabric Analytics Solution seems to expect Container logs as a default and throws errors at me in the OMS console. Additionally the Dashboard shows only the Container Error Msg instead of SF Data.

                                    Make it optional for the Service Fabric Analytics Solution to include Containers.

                                    • 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…

                                      • Make the new API great again!

                                        The new API with the upgraded workspaces is great, but the result of a HTTP Get to get search results via a URL query results into a 'nested' JSON object, and not a key:value pair like the old API had.

                                        This makes it impossible to parse for the 3rd party app we are using to work with the results.

                                        Example old API:

                                        {
                                        "SearchResults": {
                                        "id": "subscriptions\/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000\/resourceGroups\/oi-default-east-us\/providers\/Microsoft.OperationalInsights\/workspaces\<string>",
                                        "__metadata": {
                                        "resultType": "raw",
                                        "total": 3,
                                        "RequestId": "<string>",
                                        "Status": "Successful",

                                        "sort": [
                                        {

                                        }
                                        ],
                                        "requestTime": <value>
                                        },
                                        "value": [
