I know there is way to deploy agent with workspace details but this requires to use the setup.exe file
Can you please provide a way to deploy with GPO?

You have a few options today:
- startup scripts from GPO’s would be the most generic way to install and configure the agent. Command line to silent install as well as script snippets on how to enable/disable/configure thru COM API are documented here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/operational-insights-direct-agent/
- Powershell magazine came up with a DSC module that allows you to install the agent that way http://www.powershellmagazine.com/2014/11/26/dsc-resource-module-for-microsoft-monitoring-agent-install-and-configuration-for-azure-operational-insights/
- if the machines are in Azure, there is a VM extension http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/easily-enable-operational-insights-for-azure-virtual-machines/
What I would propose is to extend the capability of monitoring AWS workloads beyond simply installing an agent on their IAAS VMs. The AWS management pack for SCOM (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/WindowsGuide/AWSManagementPack.html) after importing the AWS IAM key into the system provides the capability to get fabric level details for their AWS environment.

We do not currently plan to develop such functionality, but rather will rely on partners.
One of such partners, Blue Medora, already offers a solution for collecting AWS data into Log Analytics – see here https://bluemedora.com/products/bindplane-for-microsoft/
I would like to have an Office365 IP. For example, I would like to monitor the mailflow. If no mail is comming in for a few hours, I need a warning that there might be something wrong.56 votes
System Center Operations Manager’s Office 365 Management Pack covers some of those scenarios today http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43708
Is there any way to streamline the alerts, errors, issues, space issue, content databases related issues etc to the Operation Management suite?9 votes
It depends what you mean.
If you have Operations Manager, the Alert Management intelligence pack/ solution is what will sync those alerts (hence also those from SharePoint Management pack) to OMS – see here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dmuscett/archive/2014/11/05/iis-mp-event-alerting-rules-s-opinsights-searches-equivalents.aspx
If without OM, OMS today isn’t really (yet) a reactive/monitoring tool – by knowing the instrumentation/logs you can build search queries that are rough equivalents to monitoring ‘rules’ – i.e. see the exercise here for IIS http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dmuscett/archive/2014/11/05/iis-mp-event-alerting-rules-s-opinsights-searches-equivalents.aspx
As for actual real time monitoring (i.e. producing alerts) – this idea can be tracked here http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519198-long-running-saved-searches-or-scheduled-that-ca
Need to monitor Logic App, out-of box api app and custom api apps.

Let’s see how much interest this generates.
Some information about the scenario and links would be useful, too.
We are trying to use appinsights and trying to export that data to the storage container. In the current version of OMS we want to configure custom storage container from where the logs/application data must be read for doing Alert Management.
Yes in the future we would like to enable this, but it needs work to define your own schema and fields first – not just their location.
This general work is also needed for ‘generic’ log collection i.e. http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/7113030-collect-text-log-files
Also, for doing ‘alerts’ you need to be able to create those alerts – check this idea http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519198-long-running-saved-searches-or-scheduled-that-ca

How can I remove the Setup and Quick Info tiles form overview page. Once using the service these should drop off leaving room for real data14 votes
It’s not possible today, but they do stay on the right end… We’ll see how we can improve this in the future.
This is not currently on the roadmap for the ‘new’ assessment styles. We’ll watch the community for interest.
the old Configuration Assessment does have rules for Exchange, anyhow.
I am a Service Provider who offers managed ASR and Backup so two new solutions are great, but I also offer Managed VM's (IAAS) and managed App's (PAAS), I would like to be able to view and manage scoped views of VM's from the Azure VM's. This could be a list view of the VM's like how they are viewed in the Azure Portal, and basic abilities such as stop/start/pause/checkpoint VM's would be awesome (like you can do in the SCOM VMM MP). You could then have a create VM link and jump to Azure portal to create new VM like you have with the new Automation Solution. I would also like to see this for Azure Apps (PAAS) too please

The generic version of this sounds like being able to kick off runbooks – idea which you suggested earlier – http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6658045-add-ability-to-execute-runbook-automation-from-aoi
In our scenario as a ISV we have many machines at different customer sites that have the same machine name. It would be extremely helpful if we were able to provide a friendly name or a description for machines reporting into the Azure Operational Insights Console.5 votes0 comments · Agent Management (OnPrem components) / Connectivity / Setup · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
We are thinking of a more general ‘tagging’ approach for data in search that might take care of this in the future.
To complete the monitoring scenario with PaaS services in Azure we will value the possibility of adding Operational Insights for Azure SQL Database to help to detect complex escenarios and points for improvement (most heavey queries, concurrency, use of the performance tiers, DTUs, in my apps, detect cpu consuming queries, RAM consuming queries, etc.).49 votes
Hi, do you see this as an extension of the analysis of the ‘SQL Assessment’, or as a completely new solution tailored just for Azure SQL instances/databases?
What is most important to you in this area?
I would like be able to have a consolidated view over one o more workspaces. Consider a multinational organization with local IT running different parts of the infrastructure and a consolidated view for central analysis.16 votes
I was thinking about synchronizing OnPrem SCOM Distributed Applications to Insight, toghether with SLA/SLO,
or an option to create DA in Insight (group objects) + the option to add RBAC to the group, this would eliminate the need to publish dashboards in SharePoint (or give access to SCOM) for tenants to see the general health of their scope of servers/applications30 votes
This idea is quite broad – states, distributed applications, RBAC….
The distributed application/health state part sounds like this other one http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519314-business-service-distributed-application-health – should we merge them?
Organisational accounts do not get a summary email, but accounts outside the organisation do. The option is not there in Settings. Could this feature be added please?

Yes this is something on our radar that we would like to enable in the future but has not been prioritized yet.
Provide to ability to expand the data retention to 3-8 years. Some customers do have compliance rules to save their security related data for 8 years. When this could be accomplished we move our ACS implementations on premise to OpInsights.162 votes
This feature is currently being reviewed and worked upon by the team , which is exploring new methods for longer retention, will keep this thread updated accordingly.
When I click on the "Locked-out Accounts" view from the Security IP, I am brought to the search section. There is no way on this page to tell what I am looking at without analysing the search. In the search bar it shows "EventID=4740" but who in their right mind has every event id memorized. There should be a title that shows I clicked on "Locked-out Accounts".6 votes
Thanks for the feedback.
This is similar to the behavior the mobile app has for ‘saved searches’ – they do show the title there.
Coded drill-downs today don’t carry a title across pages, and changing this has an overall impact on the breadcrumb code, most likely – see this other idea http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519263-moving-across-pages-needs-to-be-seamless-clickable
Keep in mind that the default drill down pages are meant as a convenience: once you identified a search you care about, you can SAVE it to your Saved Searches, and pin it on your own dashboard – those tiles in dashboards have a title (=the name of the saved search).

We need to control when Advisor MPs are introduced to our environment to prevent possible outages during production business hours. It would be nice to set a maintenance windows to control when changes are introduces. It would also be beneficial to be able to introduce the MPs to pre-Prod prior to Prod environments.10 votes0 comments · Agent Management (OnPrem components) / Connectivity / Setup · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
Hi, we are discussing this internally.
Today you have a way to do this, by overriding the rules that perform MP/IP download and import – there is an override MP here http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2015/02/06/notice-upcoming-url-change-for-opsmgr-reporting-to-opinsights.aspx
- you could keep them turned off in PROD and leave them enabled in QA/TEST – once you see a new MP has been updated in the test environment, you can remove the override in prod/let the update run/then block it again.
We are determining how to make this more polished.

With the latest Firefox (36.0.4) it seems "drilldown links" in Intelligence Packs don't work. I open for example the Log Management one, click on the Event facet (to see all the event highlighted by the IP) and it jumps me to the Search Data Explorer start page, without showing the actual results. In IE it works properly, it shows the query results. It is true for other IPs as well.3 votes
We have a repro and are investigating.
