  1. Import custom xml .net app logs

    Custom Log import. We have some .net applications that write error logs to a .xml file and we would like to be able to import and parse those logs.

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Grouping Custom Fields with the same name and different Custom Log name

    Hi everyone,

    It's possible group all Custom Fields, with the same name but with different Custom Log name?
    EX: Custom Field: ModuleNames Custom Logs: CustomLog1CL, CustomLog2CL

    Best Regards

  7. 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.

  8. � Symbols in many Custom Fields of Custom Logs

    Hi,

    (Maybe a codification problem)
    It's possible solve that problem?

  9. Selective custom log collecting | filter custom log BEFORE send data to OMS

    We need a solution with which we can define which entries are sent to the OMS cloud. This is the only way to ensure that no sensitive data is sent to the OMS Cloud..

    The best solution would be to define which log entries are sent. For example, only all entries that contain "xyz" – like Nagios rules.

  10. Ability to create index for custom fields

    As an administrator of OMS I have created some custom fields on e.g. syslog message from a Cisco ASA device. The field values are system codes that is hard to remember for the Network Guys who are using OMS to analyse the syslog events, so they ask for a feature where they could map the values/codes to a more descriptive sentence instead of having to look at a reference document outside of OMS.

    If the OMS admin could enable the creation of a custom index for a custom field, they could map the ASA values/codes to the descriptive values. That…

  12. BUG: Log Search Filtering by TimeGenerated range produces different results than the setting date range through gui

    Problem:
    Log filtering by date range behaves inconsistently.

    Search 1
    Perform search of "Type=Event | Measure count() by EventID" with the 'Data based on last 1 day' restriction (on the left side of the screen)

    Search 2
    Now perform search of "Type=Event TimeGenerated:[NOW-24HOURS..NOW] | Measure count() by EventID" with same 'Data based on last 1 day'

    Problem 1 -
    The results are not the same - with a bigger problem coming up next

    Search 3
    Repeat search 1 "Type=Event | Measure count() by EventID"
    and NOW Search 3 matches Search 2

    WHAT THE HECK?

    To re-trigger the mis-match, simply change…

  13. Preserve original event log order even if events have the same source time at millisecond level

    When two events fire very closely together in an application, their order is correct in the windows event log. However, in OMS log search, they are in random order, since their time is the same on the millisecond level.
    There are times that the event order is important.

  14. Connect to Azure Storage should not take you to documentation

    I want to add additional storage accounts but all it keeps doing wihen I click connect is take me to documentation. Clicking the Connect to Azure Storage button should take me to a location to connect, not send me to a documentation page

  15. read logs from database table

    Allow logs to be collected from a database table. this is a common place for applications to store error or audit logs (in our case an ETL is logging progress and status to 2 tables).

  16. Sort Custom Fields Ascending / Descending for each column

    After custom fields are created through the Data Collector API, they appear in alphabetical order. Nice would be, if I could click on the column header and it would sort accordingly ascending or descending.

  17. Allow custom logs to process UCS-2 LE BOM formatted logs

    We are trying to upload SQLERROR logs for Microsoft SQL server into the Log Analytics Custom Log feature but UCS-2 LE BOM formatted logs are not currently supported. Please add this feature as MS SQL server does not give an option to change the format for these logs.

  18. Ability to use storage account keys in a keyvault

    Ability to use keyvault for storage account keys instead of having to update the OMS configuration everytime the storage account key is updated.

    This storage account key process updates the keys and writes them to the keyvault.

  20. operationalinsights

    Get-AzureRmOperationalInsightsSearchResults change or bug?
    There seems to have been a (undocumented?) change in the format of the output from the Get-AzureRmOperationalInsightsSearchResults cmdlet in the AzureRM.OperationalInsights PowerShell module between versions 2.3.0 and 3.1.0.
    Piping the output into ConvertFrom-json now fails.
    Details attached.
