  1. Embedding Log Analytics Solutions to Third Party Web Apps

    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

    • Cloning a view in OMS and then selecting cancel deletes the original view!

      When copying a view by opening it and then clicking "clone" on top of it, selecting "cancel" not only deletes the cloned view but the original one, too!

      • 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…

        • About update management documentation

          Regarding the operation of Update Management of Log Analytics, Linux has no detailed disclosure information on Windows. We confirmed support and confirmed using yum, but I would like to improve the information on Linux monitoring.

          • Allow multiple OMS instance logins

            The recent login "upgrade" now locks me into one OMS instance at a time. Allow for logging into multiple OMS instances again!

            • Allow multiple Power BI accounts to be assigned to a workspace

              For shared workspaces connect more than one PowerBI account is very limiting.

                Default Log Analytics contributor access to create alerts.
                I understand RBAC is being worked on currently as OMS merges into ASC/the Azure portal, currently alerts can't be created with Log Analytics Contributor access which should be part of the access.

                  There is no Powershell cmdlet to manage Custom Fields on OMS Portal. So no way to automate this process. Isn't it?

                    • Ability to configure user permissions on solutions

                      It would be welcomed to see a possibility to configure user permissions on a solution level. Currently if we allow users to an OMS workspace they will see every solution and every data and every log, which is not preferred.

                      • Add non-production pricing tier

                        Please add a more affordable pricing for dev/test/qa systems. (that could be with less daily upload limits for them. That way, we could make it more viable to have all our systems(prod/dev/test) in OMS, in a single workspace. It would make it easier as currently, SCOM can only link to a single workspace and duplicating alerts/configuration in multiple workspace is not convenient.

                                • 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.

                                    • Privileged Access Workstation Auditing / PAW Auditing

                                      I want to audit Admin's Privileged Access Workstation for protect Active Directory domain, Office 365, Azure and all.

                                      PAW = Privileged Access Workstation.
                                      PAW need a lot of Policy setting. GPO, Local GP

                                      • 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.

                                        • Ability to Add Computer to Group

                                          Need the ability to create and add computers to groups in the portal without a dependency on a search query, Active Directory, or SCCM. Manually adding computers to groups would allow for queries against a list of machines that make up an application or site without a good naming convention in place. I am yet to meet an environment that has a well followed naming convention that makes it easy to filter by searching.
