  1. 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.

      We’ll be working to bring this functionality in stages over the next several months.

      One of the first steps is to ensure that workspace creation and configuration can be done programmatically.

      We’re also looking at how to report across multiple workspaces.

    • Add multiple Azure subscriptions to OMS workspace

      At the moment you can't link multiple Azure subscriptions to one OMS workspace. This would be very usefull for MSP's. We are using SCOM to monitor customers on-prem infrastructure and want to link SCOM to a OMS workspace linked to multiple Azure subscriptions.

            • Security and Role Based Access Control (RBAC)

              Hi all. I have been trying to get my security team to allow us to join the preview, however they have been pushing back. Is there a way to control users' ability to only view data from inside the corporate network? I.e. not over the web.

              Also, within the product, can you give role based access, e.g. application teams only have access to app data etc?

                  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

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                    • RBAC - DA - SLA

                      I was thinking about synchronizing OnPrem SCOM Distributed Applications to Insight, toghether with SLA/SLO,
                      or an option to create DA in Insight (group objects) + the option to add RBAC to the group, this would eliminate the need to publish dashboards in SharePoint (or give access to SCOM) for tenants to see the general health of their scope of servers/applications

                      • Link Multiple Account into Workspace

                        In this moment is possible manage only the resources linked to the Workspace account. This means that is not possible link a different account where I want have Backup/Automation status.

                        As consultant this is a big limitation because I can monitor the computers from one subscription but not some advanced resources, in case the customer has Azure Backup/Automation.

                        • Disconnect OMS from SCOM

                          If I want disconnect OMS from my SCOM environment is not possible unless I remove a MP that manage this component. This is not good for experience and also require many days after complete cleaning can be done from OMS.

                          You should introduce a Disconnect button to detach SCOM from OMS with the automatic remove of SCOM MG into OMS portal.

                            To remove a connection from Operations Manager to OMS

                            You can remove the Microsoft System Center Advisor Secure Reference Override management pack to disconnect the Operations Manager from OMS.

                            Another way to stop sending data to OMS is to remove all Operations Manager computers that are registered to OMS.

                              It would be really nice if we could export dashboards as a template. As part of the Microsoft IR team, we plan to create a standard desktop fed off of the same sources for multiple customers during compromise recovery. If there was a way to export \ import a pre-configured dashboard it would be really useful.

                                Can we get a way to use the dashboards in a NOC with heads up displays that only requires the workspace ID and key so we can monitor dashboards and such without having to have have users login. Perhaps a way to automatically display incoming alerts and/or performance charts when they trigger an alert?

                                    Today we log actions taken through the Azure portal (e.g. create/delete workspace, add/remove storage account). These are viewed under “Operational Logs” from the “Dashboard” page in the Azure portal.

                                    We intend to add more logging of actions (e.g. add/remove intelligence packs) in the future.

                                    Add votes to this to help us prioritize when this occurs.

                                      I would like be able to have a consolidated view over one o more workspaces. Consider a multinational organization with local IT running different parts of the infrastructure and a consolidated view for central analysis.
