  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • 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?

          • Add possibity to disable mail notification when a new action group is created

            When you add email recipient to action group this recipient will obtain mail notification "You're now in the ... action group".

            There is no possibility to disable it. It is annoying when environment is scripted and deployed multiple times.

            Please add possibility to supress this notification.

            • 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?

              • Metric Display Name and Threshold Name are confusing.

                I found that there are differences between Metric Display Name and Threshold Name for alert setting. E.g, about ExpressRoute, Metric is BitsInPerSecond but Threshold Name is CountPerSecond. I know those names mean same value. I think it's very confusing. I hope those name will be same name.

                • 1 sms/5 minute limit needs to increased/removed for user friendliness in services.

                  In case of VM restart alerts,The 1 SMS / 5 minute limit needs to be increased/removed in order for the service to be useful.
                  What is the reason behind this limit?

                    • Customization in log analytics

                      Please provide an option to choose different color to reflect in the log analytics graph. Currently, it give blue, green etc by default. It would be easier if customization are available so that we can choose different colors based on different metrics.

                      • Audit logs need to be more detailed

                        Current audit and activity logs do not provide enough information. For instance, if a route is changed or created the IP info is not displayed in the log.

                        • 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.

                            The subscription drop-down selector for the "Export activity log (PREVIEW)" blade should mention clearly that the customer must select the Log Origin subscription from it, and that it is not affected by the subscription Filter from the previous blade (the Activity Log blade).

                            • Make it possible to send an email with the configured screen automaticly

                              When I defined metrics I would like to be able to create an automation job which sends the metrics I just defined periodically to some emailaddress (weekly/monthly).
                              Reason is that I want to inform users who use the specific resource without gining them access to my subscription.
