How can we improve Azure Log Analytics ?

Target Solution packs to group of computers/data centers

I don't want to use *ALL* solution packs on *ALL* onboarded servers. At the moment the only workaround is to create workspaces by solution pack and maintain your server list by solution packs.

1) While Adding a Solution; optionally specify groups to target. (e.g. All; only this group members or All groups except members of this group)
2) Track data/$$ by solution pack and by servers/user defined groups. This can be used to Alert when a SP or computer/group consumes more than expected-->trigger runbook to unload SP on the server.
3) Configure data flow by restricting (Servers; solutions;group of servers; combination of Servers+solutions+Groups; AND restrictions based on log search output)

4) The OOB Dashboard (without calling APIS and configuring POwerbi) should show data usage; costs (with a currency translator based on locale <again configurable>) and show trending information.

All above from a single workspace.

    I can answer this for you. It is in the api but it is not documented.

    Microsoft.OperationalInsights/workspaces/configurationScopes, and Microsoft.OperationsManagement/solutions (properties.configurations), api version: 2015-11-01-preview.

    Please add public documentation on how to add this to an ARM template.

    This would be huge for us as well and would help us to onboard many more nodes. Please consider adding this feature as soon as possible!
