  1. Custom logs via azure cli

    Custom logs can be set up through the portal GUI or some roundabout methods building custom APIs. It would be great to be able to do this through the azure cli so it can be scripted/automated.

  2. Dry run autoscaling to monitor its behaviour without actually scaling

    Feature: An option to dry run AutoScaling.

    Why: Using custom metrics we need to validate that its behaviour concurs with what we expect, to a dry run feature in which everything is done except the actual autoscaling part.

  3. retiring custom metrics without a sufficient replacement is having a wide impact on customers

    I know we're pulling classic metrics aug 31 (latest date). ny replacement for this requires the use of custom metrics, which isn't supported in very many regions (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/metrics-custom-overview#supported-regions).
    As an SE, I've had to tell people they are just out of luck until MS supports customer metrics in more regions.

    We are negatively impacting customers by pulling the plug on this items before having a comparable replacement. If I'm mistaken, please let me know the alternative.

  4. Allow custom Y-axis range per metric

    When using multiple metrics with different units in a single chart most of them are too small or too big to be displayed properly. By customizing the Y-axis range per metric it would be possible to create a more useful chart.

  5. Improve pricing option UI

    It is strange that the three OMS options are available for selection when creating a new workspace with no explanation. There should be some kind of verification step or at the very least a clear explanation that those options are typically not available for new workspaces. Having 3 out of 4 options be effectively unavailable to new customers is inviting confusion.

  6. Can Azure Monitor alert mail with TXT format?

    Customers uses monitoring system.
    When the system receives a text email, it issues an alert or triggers an action.
    Customers want to select HTML or TXT in action group.

  7. Documentation Update Request for a definition list of all the configurable Activity Log Alerts

    Currently, We don't have a definition list of all the configurable Actitiy Log Alerts even though it is retrievable for users to get Activity Log alerts definition the users created by REST API.
    (e.g.,; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/monitor/activitylogalerts/listbyresourcegroup)

    if there is a new document regarding all of the definition,
    just like a list of configurable metric alerts (which can be accessed from: https://docs.microsoft.com/ja-jp/azure/azure-monitor/platform/metrics-supported)

    it would be very helpful for users to find activity log alerts from each RPs.

  8. targerResourceType support for VM only but not any other providers

    When targetResourceType is set to App Service Plan scopes and I got the following error.
    {"Code":"BadRequest","Message":"For the resource type Microsoft.Web/serverfarms, selecting only one resource is supported."}

    There is no way to deploy any other provider metric monitoring at Resource Group Level or Subscription using ARM template, Azure Cli and Powershell such as Database, App service plan, App Gateway ..basically except VM.

    If we need to apply App Service Plan CPU and Memory metrics for 10 App Service Plans, it means that we need to write individual 10 ASP x 2 metrics alerts. Total individual metric alerts will be 20 such…

  9. Add time parameters to Alerts

    We have a number of alerts (a large number actually) to monitor the % of cpu usage. This gives us an indication if something is going wrong or if a server is undersized. Also, we run batch jobs late at night/early morning. So high cpu usage is expected during our batch job runs.

    The trouble is the batch jobs create a lot of useless alerts since this it is expected that they will use a lot of cpu.

    My request would be able to set up time-base parameters for alerts. For example, I'd like an alert that is effective between…

  10. Heartbeat Metrics Alert to pass Computer Resource ID

    Currently there is no heartbeat metrics alert available for VM to pass resource ID. Most of the customers are being looked for this solution to implement in Heartbeat Metrics alert.

    If Microsoft enable this option that would help to customer to get Resource ID in the Heartbeat metrics Alert.

    please take this request as Priority as per customer Feedback and do the needful at the earliest..

  12. Allow users to download End to End Transaction chart with events in Azure Portal

    It would be really helpful if we allows users to download the end to end transaction chart with series of events in Azure portal. Right now it is read only and only wait to get it printed is through Analytics screen, but from there we will loose the visualization which shows time division by events,

  14. Update Analytics charts to work as smoothly as metrics charts

    Currently I have several dashboards that use Analytics charts, however they don't update with the time interval like metrics charts and they don't show the same point in time where you mouse is at like metrics charts do. And while I would love to switch to metrics, it simply does not have the ability to handle some of the operations I'm doing with Analytics, or easily add 16+ app insights resources to 10 different charts each.

  15. Add the ability to run webhook repeatedly if alert conditions are sustained

    Right now there is no option to force the resolve of Alert monitoring status.

    This is odd specially because we are forced to use alerts for vertical autoscale.

    So if you want to have multi-steps autoscale, you have to configure several alerts, with different times/tresholds, because there is no way to set an alert to resolved.

    For example you need to downscale a VM, you set an alert to trigger the webhook when the CPU is 30% or less for 15 minutes, the alert triggers, the downscale is made, but just 1 time. Because the alert is never set to…

  16. Adaptive application control - automatically include Azure Monitoring exe's

    Adaptive application control seems like a good way of "auditing" unwanted programs from running on your VM.

    Can you add a feature to be able to exclude the Azure Monitoring (health and diagnostic checks) and even VSTS-agents ?
    Adding each individual path to the "policy extension" list is not efficient.

  17. 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.

  19. After Enabling the diagnostics agent on a Windows VM, custom metrics are not being sent to Azure Monitor

    After Enabling the diagnostics agent on a Windows VM, custom metrics are not being sent to Azure Monitor in a supported region. Therefore the custom metrics including the custom namespace (visible on the portal) is not available on the Azure Monitor API. An example request used to list namespaces:

    GET https://management.azure.com/{resourceUri}/providers/microsoft.insights/metricNamespaces?api-version=2017-12-01-preview

  20. setup individual disk drive low free space alert on subscription level

    The existing Metrics function only can trigger alert when overall disk drive space is low, but cannot monitoring and trigger alert when disk space running out when occurred in single drive space.

    Classic alert can do the individual drive monitoring but needed to re-config & setup it "per drive" on each machine repeatedly & hard to manage, it cannot do that by subscription or resource group level for bulk management.

    So would like to have this missing function "drive level free space monitoring" on Metrics.
