  1. Add ability to query pipeline run history from an activity in a pipeline

    I want to have an activity that checks to see if a named pipeline is currently running and act accordingly (e.g. wait a minute and re-check)

  2. Extract workbook charts to a PDF file

    The ability to extract all the charts in a workbook to a PDF file would be handy without having to do it one by one. Currently for reporting I have to print screen the charts and insert them one by one into a file. It would be good to just open a workbook and click 'Download' for it to then produce 1 PDF file containing all the charts in the workbook.

  3. Allow query screen to pop out to be expanded to be full screen

    Since Log Analytics moved to the Azure Portal, something that is a pain point is how you can no longer use your full screen to do queries, the left side and top are cut off by the rest of the Azure management portal.

    It would be good if you could open the query screen in a pop up window so it can be expanded.

    It makes viewing the results of queries difficult due to needing to scroll around to read everything, making it practically a necessity to need to export results to a CSV and review in Excel rather than…

  4. Request to add BMC Remedy partner type in ITSM Connection

    Hi Team,

    Could you please add BMC Remedy partner type in ITSM connection in LogicApps as this connection is not available which is commonly used tool in most of the software companies.
    Adding this connector will help us to automatically creates remedy tickets whenever there is a failure in ADF or if any component reaches threshold limits

  5. Information about creator virtual machine in Azure

    [REG:119031826000471]
    Related to above ticket number, the information logs for azure only available for last 3 months, so its more better if azure can keep information like who is the creator, when the vm is created.

    thanks

  6. Collect Log Analytics Logs by vNet not through internet.

    We would like to collect logs without going through the internet.
    We need to be able to connect some URLs on the Azure Datacenter via the Internet.
    Communication is encrypted and URLs are fixed, but important data such as security logs are sent, so it is more secure if we can collect it simply by connecting to vNet.
    If this feature is implemented, we can collect more important data such a customer data and audit information.

  7. Send alerts with resolved state for log alert rules

    Related with: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-log-analytics/suggestions/12898992-activated-resolved-states-for-alerts-with-auto-res

    The documentation says:

    Log alert rules comprise of custom query-based logic provided by users and hence without a resolved state. Due to which every time the conditions specified in the log alert rule are met, it is fired.

    It would be nice if there were a possibility that if the alert is fired, and the next time the query is executed it does not satisfy the condition to be fired again, then a resolved alert could be sent.

  9. Log rotation includes dynamic folder name change

    I am importing backup log to Azure log analytics via custom logs and will create alert if it fails ,but log rotation is enabled which will replace folder also,below is example.

  10. Log Analytics - Alert Schema misses AlertStatus and Sev information

    On Log Analytics Alert schema does not have any status on ALertStatus column. It would be great if the Status and Sev details are included to the schema.

  11. Azure Log Analytics for Skype Room Systems - Filter

    Filter unhealthy peripherals from Skype Room Systems alerts. I have a client that often changes the input of the room which generates an alert for front of the room display hardware issues. Would like to be able to customize the alert to send only if the microphone or speaker is reporting unhealthy as an example.

  12. Allow user to define the sample data set for Custom Field mapping with FastExtract

    Log Analytics provides for modeling custom fields in custom logs using FastExtract.

    The mapping tool limits the user to the top 100 log entries when doing the modeling of custom fields. This can be seen in the interface when doing a field extract by clicking the "hide tips" link in the right hand side. The tips scroll away revealing the Condition section which indicates a "take 100" limit.

    I've struggled to create fields that contain all possible values for a field or column in my custom logs due to this arbitrary limit.

    A much more useful implementation would be to…

  14. ServiceMap region limitation

    Can we add the supported region in the solution introduction page from service market when creating the solution from portal ?
    And add some region-check during the deployment and prompt warning message if the region is not supported ?
    It's hard for users to figure out why it's not working after the solution is crated successfully in un-supported regions.

  17. Deep link to specific solution dashboard

    With the old OMS Portal, it was possible to deep link directly into a specific solution dashboard. This is no longer possible with Log Analytics in the Azure Portal as the URL doesn't change after hitting the Workspace Summary/Overview tab. We also used to be able to specify the time range as part of the URL for a dashboard too. For example, an old OMS Portal deep link, with a time range, might have looked like;

    https://oms.portal.mms.microsoft.com/#Workspace/overview/solutions/details/index?_timeInterval.intervalDuration=86400&solutionId=My%2520Custom%2520Solution

    These are super useful for monitoring screen type dashboards which are displayed on a big screen with an automatic refresh. It is currently…

  18. timestamp last collection only for all queries

    There should be the possibillity to run query with the timestamp last data collection only whenever it was. ago or now-x not helpful and not correct for example on performance counters like free diskspace, or alternate have a filter option last timestamp per server, if you have the same server more as one time as result. Example timestamp perf counter >=1h. same server more as one time. I need only last collection.

  19. Activity Log should not display clientIpAddresses from Resource Provider

    When auditing activity logs using Get-AzureRmLog command through powershell, ClientIpAddress value in HttpRequest shows Azure internal IP addresses which correspond to resource provider IP addresses.
    So far I have found that CRP and Disk RP appear in activity logs and they should not appear as this can bring unnecessary confusion points to customers.
    I had a customer who was curious about IP addresses which belonged to our Resource Providers. I explained what those IP addresses were but customer was very complaining about this.

    I think we SHOULD NOT HAVE INTERNAL IP ADDRESSES in activity logs, as this has little meaning…

  20. Log Analytics - allow configuring different data collection settings per connected machine\agent in the same workspace

    for example: in a scenario where two windows machines are connected to the same log analytics workspace, provide the option to ingest windows performance counters data to the workspace only for the first machine (when both machines connected to the same log analytics workspace)

    This feature will be very useful when a customer needs to use a single workspace for different use cases, but willing to keep all the data in a single location, while preventing unnecessary data ingestion which will result in additional costs.
