  2. Enable IP geolocation resolver on custom logs containing IP addresses

    We use IIS advanced logging to add fields to our logs. This means we cannot ingest normal IIS logs. Therefore we ingest IIS logs using the Custom Logs feature. We do not get geo IP address lookups in this case.

    Please add a feature for all custom logs to indicate which columns contain client IP addresses, and enable geo resolution for those columns.

  4. Auto Extraction of JSON Data

    It needs the ability to import JSON files (and other fomats such as XML) and have the fields auto extracted as custom fields. Without this, it makes searching on new fields cumbersome and creating new custom fields for all new JSON fields isn't feasible.

    This would more closely match the capabilities of Splunk and allow more people to make a more seamless transition.

  5. Native XML Format Log Parsing/Ingestion

    Several tools, including Microsoft's tools such as IE Enterprise Discovery Toolkit, create XML formatted logs - please add the ability to parse/ingest XML format natively so we don't have to convert it to UTF-8 first.

  6. Apply Custom Fields to Data already on OMS and not only New Data

    Custom Fields is a great feature, allowing a flexible parsing of logs. But Custom Fields apply only to new data sent to OMS, and not 'old data'.
    Please make possible applying custom fields to old data so we can go back in time and benefit from the new fields we define.

  7. Combine machine data with database data

    the goal here is to allow LA lookups database. so user can reference fields in an external database that match fields in machin data that has already collected by LA . Using these matches wiill add more meaningful information and searchable fields to enrich event and machine data.

    i can see it as a Connector to database

  10. 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…

  11. Provide a means to strip confidential info from Event logs such as ids, server names, etc

    Certain info in Event logs especially the security log could be useful to hackers. This needs to be treated as sensitive info. Assume this info could be compromised.

  13. Application Data Collection for All Win10 OS.

    ability to pull application information for all versions of operating system, not just those that are below the target OS level. This could be tied into PowerBI then, to show high-level information about the applications installed. Currently the Data in the OMS portal is only displayed for Operating systems below 1709, therefore we are unable to view app data for a couple thousand devices, that are already upgraded to 1709. An Example of a report we would like to see is attached. (currently pulling from Upgrade Analytics tables)

  14. Allow adding custom AD user attributes for AD and Sharepoint Analytics

    We have attributes like Market ID per user , synced to Azure.
    Custom user attributes should be possible to sync to Analytics so you can use for queries , usage reports and so on.
    If not in you have to build a second loop, identify user, identify user related custom attribute , a mess for large tenants.
    At the end the same for the other integrations like Exchange, Sharepoint Analytics required

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  15. Create a functionality for synthetic IP Logging for something similar to pingdom

    A functionality for synthetic tracking for Uptime SLA would be extremely useful. Currently we use: pingdom, but it would be nice to consolidate down our tooling.

  19. Data Type Format

    Hi,

    It will be an good idea if we could change de Data Type Format assumed by OMS. Ex: When i send many data over HTTP Data Collector API some fields are recognized like string and not numbers.
