  1. Do not sunset the OMS mobile until the Azure mobile can display dashboards and chart information.

    Do not sunset the OMS mobile app until the Azure mobile app can effectively replace the functionality. The current Azure mobile application cannot display any dashboards (including Azure dashboards) nor can it display log analytics or application insights queries. This functionality is currently only available in the OMS mobile app!

      We are actively seeking for feedback in this area, as this is non trivial decision for us. Based on the user voice, there seems to be some passionate supporters for this capability, yet, the number of users actively using the app remains very low. Would love to hear ideas on how to reconcile this:
      1. is it just a great demo feature?
      2. Which one of the features users are using – dashboards vs. search vs. alerts?
      3. Could something like PowerBI be a viable alternative? If not – what’s missing?

    • Custom Logs should include a File "name" or "path" property to indicate where it came from

      Similar to 'SourceSystem,' this could be called 'SourceFile' or 'SourcePath.' This field, which should be searchable, contains the full path of the collected log as the value.

      The existing field 'Type' does not suffice for this purpose- it doesn't scale well when defining custom logs with a wildcard. One 'Type' can have many individual logs. Without a searchable 'SourceFile' property, you wouldn't know where the logs came from, exactly.

      • 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…

        • Apply Actions to the OMS Alerts Severity Levels (Inheristed Actions)

          We want all the Alerts at one Severity Level to have the same Actions

          What we propose is Inherited Actions.

          Allow Actions to be applied to the Severity Level, and all Alerts at that level would inherit those Actions.

          Any Rules with their own actions would keep them or Override the inherited rule.

          This would make creating multiple rules easier

          • 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.

            • Category dropdown when adding a saved search from Log Search blade

              While in the Log Search Blade, selecting Saved searches, then selecting Add, a category dropdown should appear to select existing categories to add to. The ability to add a new category should continue as well.

              • 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.

                • When pinning an Analytics query to a dashboard, you should be able to set a refresh rate

                  In Azure Log Analytics, you can write a custom query and then pin it to a dashboard. But the data presented cannot be configured to refresh regularly. The data is set to refresh once an hour, which might as well be no refresh at all. The rate should be set to something similar to Live Tile refresh rates, or directly configurable so that dashboards will present Analytics data that is not stale.

                    • 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.

                      • Nagios Alert does not show Service Name

                        Nagios alerts are collected by LogAnalytics.
                        Customers were able to implement settings to send alerts to LogAnalytics and receive notifications.

                        But there is a problem.
                        That is AlertName = SERVICE ALERT data.
                        The Service Name detected by Nagios is not stored in this column.
                        Therefore, we can not judge from what LogAnalytics logs what service alerts are.

                        The same problem is raised in Github.
                        https://github.com/Microsoft/OMS-Agent-for-Linux/issues/613

                        When is the ETA?

                        • OMS Alerts pass Computer name to alert

                          I want to Run a bunch of alerts over Computer Groups.

                          When an alert gets triggered by one of the computers i would like the alert to include the server that triggered the alert.

                          E.g.

                          We want a Heartbeat check over all servers.
                          When server1 is not sending it's Heartbeat I would like the alert to say
                          'Heartbeat on server1 is down'

                          So passing the alert name in the form of 'Hearbeat on {serverName} is down'

                          And being able to extract information from the Log search as the variable

                          e.g.
                          | extract Computer as {ComputerName}

                            • Performance Counter consistency between Linux and Windows machines

                              It would be much more convenient if names of performance metrics would be same between Linux and Windows machines, for example ObjectName, for Disk Write Bytes/Sec counter, is LogicalDisk for Windows and Logical Disk for Linux, such differences doesn't allow to use same queries for Linux and Windows machines, Also Linux machines are missing a lot of metrics such as "Bytes Sent/Sec" in "Network" ("Network Adapter" for Windows)

                              • 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.

                                  • Log Analytics Metric from Azure Diagnostics is different in Azure Monitor Metric

                                    This is an extensive question.
                                    Log Analytics collects diagnostic logs.
                                    Azure's resources collect metrics.
                                    (The metric here is a metric that can be confirmed with Azure Monitor.)
                                    In these values, the time of collection and the metric itself may differ.

                                    Are there any public information on the difference between the metrics of Azure Monitor and the metrics of Azure diagnostic logs?

                                    The customer is looking for it.
                                    It is different from the value on Azure Monitor when using Log Analytics, so we can not decide which product to use.

                                    Customer plans to migrate to Log Analytics from Azure Monitor metric…

                                      • Azure Security Center Recommendations Log Analytics Query syntax

                                        Could someone point me in the direction of a resource that provides a mapping of the recommendations in Security Center (SC) with the associated Log Analytics query syntax? For example SC lists all of the machines that are not compliant with the recommendations in list below. I need to extract these results out into a spreadsheet and cannot see how to do this other than maybe running a query in Log analytics? If so does anyone know of a listing of these queries?

                                        • Save Column Selections Along With Queries/Favorites

                                          The log search and ability to save queries/favorites is looking good. However, please include the column filters, column positions, and Display Time setting in the saving of queries, so that each time we return to a saved query we don't need to re-configure all of those settings to achieve the desired view. Thank you!
