  1. Azure Alerts - More Parameters for Webhook JSON Payload

    In log alerts, there's a fixed list of parameters defined for Webhook JSON payload.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/alerts-log-webhook#sample-payloads

    Can Azure add more parameters to it from search results?
    For example: Caller (user who triggered the alert), App/Resource name (for which the alert was triggered), etc.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Add an option for a demo of service health alert

    Currently, there is no demo option for service health alerts, and an user can receive alerts only when an actual incident occurs. However, some customers would like to check if the alert works properly before configuring it in a production environment. Therefore, it would be great if the user could fire a service helth alert as a test.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow for trigger of Alert Action Group

    Allow an action group to be manually triggered by some other means (Powershell, Rest API...). This would allow for an alert to trigger an automation account and/or a logic app for more advanced processing of the alert and then trigger another action group to actually process the notification. Without this option, the automation account and/or logic app would then need to handle the notification which can be rather difficult at scale.

    This would also allow for an action group to be tested to confirm that it is working without having to force the criteria for which the alert was made.

  10. 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.

  11. Add a SQL Data Source to Azure Monitor Workbooks

    From https://docs.microsoft.com/en-ca/azure/azure-monitor/visualizations

    Workbooks are interactive documents that provide deep insights into your data, investigation, and collaboration inside the team. Specific examples where workbooks are useful are troubleshooting guides and incident postmortem.

    It makes a lot of sense for a tool meant to "provide deep insights into your data" to have access to Azure SQL Database data. I love the tool for Application Insight but this seems like a big oversight not being able to use / join SQL data.

    I say oversight because I couldn't find anything mentioning the intention of adding this feature, but I may have missed it,…

  13. Add "management.azure.com" to Private Endpoint

    Many users want to collect Resources via REST API using closed network like Private Link. Currently "management.azure.com" (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/resources/resources/list) cannot be a Private Endpoint. Hope adding "management.azure.com" to Private Endpoint.

  14. Microsoft-Windows Diagnostic-Performance

    We want to monitor the health of our workstations using Azure Monitor. One of the most important metric to start with is the boot time that resides in the event log. Currently Azure Monitor does not collect the event log named "Microsoft-Windows Diagnostic-Performance".

    Can you please add this event log in Azure Monitor?

  15. Provide More Details for Azure Portal Notification

    We received an amber alert in the Azure Portal Notifications which read

    'Requests throttled Requests to the server are being throttled'.

    When you clicked for more information there was none available. Please can you make it so that more information is available so we can have visibility to where the issue is coming from.

  16. Allow Action Groups to be assigned to alerts across subscriptions

    -A single team defines action groups, with custom payloads and webhook endpoints
    -Deploys them to their resource group
    -Assigns the tenant read access to the resource
    -Other teams can then create alerts and utilize that single source to pick action groups

  19. 1 sms/5 minute limit needs to increased/removed for user friendliness in services.

    When we initially shipped this feature the rate limiting was 1 SMS / 1 minute. Customer feedback was that 1 SMS was enough to alert the user that they need to log into the portal to investigate what’s going on. The other SMS were just noise.

    We have to have a rate limit in place for telecommunications regulatory reasons. A lot of countries regulate how many SMS may be sent to a particular phone number per-minute. If a sender exceeds that limit wireless carriers will blacklist the sender.

  20. Allow Export or move of Log Analytics Workspace to different Region/Workspace

    Allow the export of a log analytics workspace into a different log analytics workspace in another region. Currently, log analytics workspaces cannot be migrated to different regions. Due to feature differences in regions this can become a difficult issue to resolve if a feature that was not an initial requirement becomes a requirement after the fact. Due to the changing landscape of needs and desires over time, deleting a log analytics workspace after incredible investment can become a roadblock. Ideally, the ability to move a log analytics workspace from one region to another would be a fantastic feature.
