  1. Make email unsubscribe easy

    The follow up emails are a good reminder but the unsubscribe option is unacceptable, in my opinion.

    It should be a single link to unsubscribe, the current instructions are unnecessarily difficult and take too long to execute, especially as I appear to have to complete this task in each of my workspaces rather than at a top level.

  2. Retrieve the portal time span and use it inside the kusto query

    I am trying to access the time range selected from portal and use it inside the kusto query to show some metric (% uptime of a specific api using our custom logic).

    Documents does not mention any variable or function that we will help to access the time range selected from portal.

    It would be helpful to have a magic variable to see the time range selected from portal.

  3. Remove "Settings" tile on the Overview startpage

    Wasted Space on the Overview. If even necessary move to configuration or remove entire after reaching 100%... it is no longer required.

  4. Easy UI with Connection Options

    Functionality and Logic need to be more Intuitive. Connecting assets to monitor insights should not be so difficult.

    We are sorry to hear you find this difficult. Unfortunately it is not very clear what exactly you found complex.

    Right now the big blue ‘Settings’ tile on the overview screen is your entry point for the steps of adding agents/system, adding solutions to your workspace, and configuring log collection, and it is meant to guide you thru these first steps.

    We have some step-by-step documentation about onboarding starting here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/operational-insights-onboard-in-minutes/

    and there are even videos, i.e. https://channel9.msdn.com/blogs/satyavel/3-Ways-to-Onboard-to-OpInsights albeit the UI probably already changed a little since then.

    We are continuously making enhancements, see for example this review https://cloudadministrator.wordpress.com/2015/08/04/operations-management-suite-goodbye-silverlight-and-other-stuff/ so, as the UI changes, is not always possible to immediately have uptodate documentation and guidance, but generally we try to make it simpler.

  5. Alter saved search from PowerShell / UI

    Today you cannot edit a saved search from either PS or UI.

    There is a cmdlet that describes this fuction but it does not work.

    It would be very useful to be able to dynamically change saved searchs from PS.

    In my usage i need it to make a dashboard tile that shows Microsoft Security Baseline and one that shows corporate baseline by excluding KB's that the Corporation does not apply for some reason.

    Cmdlet link:

  7. Choose My Dashboard as initial page rather than OMS overview

    Each user should be able to customize the initial screen they get to after opening OMS. The My Dashboard should be that initial screen. The current overview is stuff that should be in the My Dashboard. What is now called "My Dashboard" is really "My performance overview". In addition to displaying tiles that have graphs or charts of data, the my dashboard should be able to display the tiles that are now displayed in the Overview.

  8. Using Thresholds as a front tile in OMS

    It should be possible to how many circumstances that is giving out an Error, warning or normal on the front dashboard.
    Just like the solutions is doing with the recommendations red/green/yellow, it would be nice, if we could use the threshold to do the same thing.

  9. Dashboards to support collaboration - via restricting privacy, editing, access to different groups of users.

    I want to be able to grant different levels of access to different groups of users. I am acting as the admin of a large complex environment and am concerned about privacy.

  10. Not much data about what "Performing Assessement" means for Key vault preview

    Trying to use the Key Vault Preview, but I can't seem to get it to show any data. I can search the logs and see that events are captured, but the tile for Key Vault just continues to say "Performing Assessment". Not really obvious what I need to do or how long I should wait before I assume it's broken or misconfigured.

  11. FIX BUG IN NOTIFICATIONS

    I KEEP RECEIVING NOTIFICATIONS!!

    The "receive email" box has been unchecked forever in my account settings - yet I keep getting email notifications!!!

    This is truly horrible.

    Aren't you required by law to have an "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email?? All other emails I get from Azure have a direct unsubscribe link at the bottom. You should run the content of your unsolicited notification email through LCA, as this really might be a legal liability.

  12. Cascading Input controls

    I think we must have cascading filters options enabled in the filters section.
    The filter query must have the ability to accept the parameters to restrict the data of the dependent input control.

  13. extention log

    please record the update activity for Azure VM Extensions in Azure Activity Logs.
    Some Extensions outputs error logs on system evt or syslog when these are updating, But it is not easy to confirm the update was done successfully via Azure Portal.
    If Azure Portal shows the update status and update activity, it is very good function.

  15. Scrap the overview tile

    Id like to pin the drilled down dashview to the portal, I need to have the dashboard have less clicking. The overview tile just adds unneccessary clicks. Or even the same views in the dashboard view, be available in the overview tile. So the information is right there without the summary

  16. Settings overview tile has vague "items completed" feature.

    After setting up my workspace (completely functional now), I'm presented with a tile on the overview dashboard stating "2 of 3 items completed". I have no idea what the remaining item is. When I click the tile, it redirects me to the list of installed solutions (I've installed 8). Please include information on what "items" this counter refers to.

  17. View Designer: Missing options (list scaling and threshold)

    Feedback regarding the View Designer. I'm using Line chart & List parts on my test view. How do I change the scaling of the values in the list? IE, display GBs instead of 34K MB. This is a feature that appears in the graph header so I might be missing something. In the same area, it would be great to be able to have '<' thresholds too. IE when DiskSpace < 10 GB then display yellow.

  18. Aliases for Connected Computers/Sources

    I would really like to have the ability to assign aliases to computer names in OMS - for instance, having computer name "WIN-2DUHT78" be displayed in OMS as "Production2". Maybe allow filtering/searching using the aliases as well.

  19. Allow a user of portal.azure.com to add an existing workspace

    Need a way to add a user with User access to an existing OMS workspace. Right now it asks the user to create a new workspace and everything.

  20. Improve navigation

    Improve navigation so it is less modal, less context sensitive. For instance I should be able to go directly to My Dashboard or to Log Search or to Overview from any screen. Perhaps a toolbar?
