Azure Monitor

Azure Monitor Action Groups enable you to configure how to receive notifications when an Azure Monitor Alert is triggered.

How can we improve Azure Monitor?

  2. Provide granular Activity Log event operations

    For most service providers (if not all), it is not possible to identify Create from Update operations from Activity Log events, they are all provided under a generic "write" operation, which doesn't allow proper event-driven solutions to be built.

    It would be great to be able to set up granular alerts for each operation type and receive it on the webhook's payload as well.

  5. monitor export

    We can see some metrics from Monitor Service.
    But it doesn't have a export UI on Azure Portal against Metrics.(Activity log has export UI.)
    Exporting these metrics is usefull for point of customer side system monitoring.

  6. Time range for Metrics Explorer

    Currently we could not display the over 30 days of metrics graph at once.
    If we want to display 93 days, we cannot display at once, so display at multiple times. I want you to support display the graph in maximum 93 days.

  7. Add ability send a sample/test webhook for azure alerts

    It's great that Azure is expanding webhooks support (with alerts and kudu notifications now available), but it would be very helpful for developing and debugging webhook handlers to be able to simulate a webhook request on demand. Stripe, and many other services that expose webhooks have this functionality.

  8. Make it configurable for the time interval for the resource was unavailable for

    Hi team,

    Currently, we provisioning resource health alerts via ARM to monitor the health status of our vms, per the recommended template here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/service-health/resource-health-alert-arm-template-guide#recommended-resource-health-alert-template

    We are receiving multiple alerts while stopping a VM for the same event (status change: available => unavailable). We don't want to receive so many alerts for the same event. We are also seeing other users are having the same issue. https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/20560

    And we've found one of the event alerts was "Down: Virtual machine has been unavailable for 15 minutes"
    which seems to be very helpful for us to use. But 15 minutes is too long…

  9. Enable logging of all service bus metrics from diagnostic logging

    We recently enabled diagnostic logging in Azure Service Bus. While there are over a dozen metrics that are collected (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/metrics-supported#microsoftservicebusnamespaces), only a few (IncomingRequests, IncomingMessages, OutgoingMessages) are exported when streaming to either a storage account or event hub. Per MS Premier Support, the other metrics are currently not supported.

    Add support for streaming of all metrics from Azure Service Bus. This will make logging and monitoring of service buses much more effective.

    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.

  10. Allow to select all alerts at once

    In the "All Alerts" view (see path below) it would be very helpful to be able to select/deselect all (visible) alerts at once and to change the state once. This option is already available in another view (see path below). If there are many alerts it's very annoying to select them one by one.
    The attached screenshots show both views, where option is available and where it's not available.

    Path to view where "Select all" option is missing:
    Azure Portal > Monitor > Alerts > (choose severity) > All Alerts

    Path to view where "Select all" option is available:

  11. Add more country codes for SMS alerting and voice alerts

    I need +47 (Norway) ..
    And there are requests here for +32 (Belgium) and and +34 (Spain)...

    Microsoft Authenticator can send sms to most european countries and so should Azure Monitor.

  12. Text Alerts in Azure Monitor Not Detailed

    Text Alerts in Azure Monitor are not detailed enough as only show the description of the alert and not the service or server effected by the issue.

    More detail on the Text Alerts to be added or potential options for customising Text Alerts to add and include information.

  13. Azure monitor - Include tags in webhook payload

    It would be useful to have resource tags included in the webhook payload when generating an alert. It will add additional context.

    Thanks

  14. Add the country code +972 (Israel) for SMS alerting

    SMS alerting integrated into a full monitoring solution is great but should include more countries. Please add +972 from Israel

  15. Set Alert State and Status in Log Analytics for Custom Log Query alerts

    Right now AlertState and AlertStatus are empty in Log Analytics for Log Query alerts. This means no dashboard functionality (pie charts) or any other overview for new, acknowledged or closed alerts.

    Been send to this feedback forum by Microsoft Premier support.

  17. Rework the standard support e-mail

    The standard e-mail is not very good.

    1. I have 6 different subscriptions to monitor. There is no way of knowing which subscription has triggered the alert, unless i memerize the GUID for the subscription.

    2. Rule ID: Same thing. Use the name of the sub instead.

    3. The link in the e-mail points to "the portal". Just the default page. Is there no way to point the user to at least some other page, nearer the actual error?

  18. Support action groups as an action for an alert rule

    Support Microsoft.Insights/ActionGroups as an action for a Microsoft.Insights/alertRules

    Action groups are supported elsewhere in Azure (e.g. Log Analytics and Azure Monitor) but not in Application Inisghts. It'd be great if we could use our action groups as a way to encapsulate our response to alerts from App Insights, OMS and Monitor.

    Is this on the roadmap?

  19. On app service performance counters for TCP connections, don't filter by TCP state, instead show a line per type

    Under "Diagnose and solve problems" > "Metrics per instance (Apps)" > "Perf Counters" > "TCPv4\ TCPv4 Connections Established"

    It describes the graph as...
    Connections Established is the number of TCP connections for which the current state is either ESTABLISHED or CLOSE-WAIT.

    Can you instead show a line per state so we can understand if there are connection issues. And don't filter on just the above 2, show all.

    Also, the description has "CLOSE-WAIT" as what it is showing, but the state in TCP is actually "CLOSE_WAIT", is there a possible bug with the filter and it is actually not showing…

  20. The documentation for the metrics in Azure need to be documented in a much better way as it currently is close to non-existant.

    Documentation is desperately needed for the metrics in Azure. For example, the Response time avg graphs in Metrics, Performance, Live Metrics, etc.

    I would like to know exactly where they start to measure and when the measurement ends.
