  1. Make it easy to display a Dahboard via a TV

    I'd like to make the dashboard available via a TV...a readonly view so everyone can see the tiles and health of the systems we are monitoring.

    We could create a url that contains a token to only the dashboard, so you don't have to authenticate to make it easy to supply to our digital signage system.

    Thanks

      • Building tiles and views based on saved Analytics queries

        At the Moment we have to design a query in Analytics Portal, saving it for later re-use and then copying the query into View designer to visualize the result.
        It would be really helpful to be able to base views on saved queries. Instead of pasting the query it would be helpful to simply select a saved query. If then someone Edits the query the visualization gets automatically updated.

        • Allow updating Analytics queries for existing dashboard tiles

          Creating a Azure Portal Dashboard tile based on an Analytics Portal query is super easy. But changing the query later on requires to re-create the whole tile.
          There should be a way to click on the tile, modify the query and then cklick on "Save" to simply modifiying the query and updating the Dashboard tile.

              • When pinning an Analytics query to a dashboard, you should be able to set a refresh rate

                In Azure Log Analytics, you can write a custom query and then pin it to a dashboard. But the data presented cannot be configured to refresh regularly. The data is set to refresh once an hour, which might as well be no refresh at all. The rate should be set to something similar to Live Tile refresh rates, or directly configurable so that dashboards will present Analytics data that is not stale.

                • Backup job status

                  It would be good if the backup monitor showed status of failed jobs etc rather than just how much data and how many servers are backed up

                  • Personalize Tile Size

                    If you want follow the new Azure portal style, the OMS Dashboard must be similar so the Tiles must have more than one size. In this moment all the tiles are similar and if I've one of these with many details, I must open the item to see all the info.

                    Give us three standard sizing

                    thanks

                          • We want to customize the Donut dashboard. If the event ID generates, dashboard color should change to RED otherwise it should stays GREEN.

                            We want to customize the Donut dashboard. If the event ID generates, dashboard color should change to RED otherwise it should stays GREEN. Also there should be option for keyword in addition to value in threshold field. For example. I have a dashboard for monitoring Windows services. If the services status is stopped. It should be red otherwise it should be green.

                              • chart

                                Provide a method for setting the range of time displayed for a line chart in the Tile View when creating a custom view using the View Designer. The OMS Portal defaults the tile to 24 hours, but when pinning the same tile to the Azure Portal it shows 7 days of data. For data intensive line charts, like CPU performance, the line chart becomes less useful in the Azure Portal and takes much longer to load.

                                • computers listed twice (connected to OMS via SCOM)

                                  The following query is in My Dashboard. ObjectName!="Advisor Metrics" ObjectName!=ManagedSpace | measure max(TimeGenerated) by Computer | Sort Computer

                                  Upon closer inspection the total number of servers listed does not equal the server count in the Malware IP and System Update IP. From what I can see most servers are listed by FQDN with the name in ALL CAPS. The duplicate servers are listed in lower case.

                                  For my workspace I added 117 via SCOM but for the query above as well as the 'servers utilized' field under usage the value is 190.

                                  Curious if this is a bug and more…

                                    Currently the values of the Computer field are case sensitive and a distinction isn’t made between host names and FQDN. These factors can result in the same computer being reported as different computers.

                                    Data isn’t being counted multiple times for the servers – typically the difference in name results from how the data was collected (different data sources can report different names).

                                  • Portal not loading for me in any browsers besides IE

                                    I can only load the OMS portal in IE. Chrome and Edge just continue loading indefinitely.

                                      • Showing all machines in designer view, rather than just 10

                                        Currently have 15 machines feeding into one OMS portal.

                                        In the designer view I have created tiles for CPU/Memory/Disk Space/Etc, but in the list it only shows a maximum of 10 machines, whereas the bar graph shows all 15.
                                        Is it possible to get an option to adjust the amount of machines that can be viewed in said section to allow for an easier management of the thresholds?

                                        Thanks

                                        • Ability to have different time duration on tiles on main dashboard

                                          For the main OMS dashboard, we need the ability for each individual tile to have its own "time duration" for graphs & charts. We have some tiles that need to show the last 24 hours, and some that need to show the last 7 days
