  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?

      • We should be able to customize the email body of the email notification generated by Alerts.

        So, Alerts will be sending default emails.. we should be able to generate the customized email with the search results.

        • Provide ability to query resource Graph data from Log Analytics

          Please provide option to query resource graph data from Log Analytics. That will allow to correlate data between those and some interesting scenarios will be possible. Also you should be able to use Log Analytics query that reaches resource graph and you can create Log Search alert.

          • Maximum number of search results in notification e-mail limited to 10 results only

            The number search results shown in the e-mail generated by the Alerting engine seems to be limited to 10. The "search results" field in the alert e-mail shows e.g. "49 result(s)", but the results previews below only shows 10. In a setup where stakeholders need to know about all results, but are -with respect to regulatory laws- not allowed to access the Azure Monitor site itself, this is a very rough limitation. It would help to be able to increase this limit generously (1000 results).

              • OMS Agent should not consume excessive CPU/memory space

                The OMS Agent for Linux takes up a large amount of CPU/memory space, which causes issues when running on Kubernetes clusters. Azure Security Center automatically installs the OMS Agent on all VMs, and users are frustrated by having to uninstall it in order to regain the CPU/memory space. The OMS Agent should not take up an overly large amount of CPU/memory space.

                  • 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…

                      • Ability to use back button to navigate back to previous query in Azure Log Analytics

                        Currently the back button can't be used to navigate back to the last query in the new Azure Portal log analytics interface.
                        There is no way of navigating back to a previous query which would be very useful if drilling down into a query and then wanting to revert.

                          • Please add a removal/delete option for Machines and VMs.

                            We accidentally ran the MMASetup-AMD64.exe on a desktop computer instead of the intended VM. Now that desktop computer is added to our automation group, but we can't remove it very easily. It'd be really nice if a remove or delete option were available in the GUI and we didn't have to code a removal through powershell for something that could be simpler.

                                      • Alert email query character limit

                                        There is a link in the alert emails from Log Analytics that pulls up the query results in a browser. There seems to be a character limit on the query that is returned by the link. One of our queries is 800+ characters and is only partially displayed, resulting in a syntax error when following the link. Please increase the character limit of the linked query.

                                        • dnat or network rule alert and/or search query

                                          It would be nice to be able to search if anyone create specifically a dnat rule using azure firewall . At the momemt it is only possible to create a Activity Log Alert for "Creates or updates an Azure Firewall" event , however it’s not limited to NAT Rule Collection only but creates activity logs if it falls under below criteria and you can create an alert on top of it. it’s a broader alert for any activity within the Firewall resource
