  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.

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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

  9. Increase Limit for Azure Activity Logs, current quota is 100

    Increase Limit for Azure Activity Logs, current quota is 100, which easily reachable, as there are number of Azure services use by organisation which need to monitored. I have this issue in two organisations quota of 100 is not sufficient. As there is limit for Alerts as well but that limit can be increased on request, I have escalated this issue with Microsoft i got the answer this is product limitation unfortunately they are not able to increase the limit.

  10. Workbooks: Reordering [Added Column] in Merge datasets

    When creating an [Added Column] in a Merge dataset, the column always goes to the end of the list. If you move it to the top of the list, it does not change the order of of the columns as displayed.

    Related, it would be nice to be able to specify the name of an added column as you add it, rather than it always being named [Added Column] and having to be renamed afterwards.

    Less related, it would be nice to be able to adjust the widths of columns in a workbook.

  11. Azure monitor - Additional dimensions for application insights metrics

    Good day,

    Can you please add additional dimensions like "urlHost" to Application insights metric alerts. (Microsoft.Insights/Components)
    It's a more effective way to monitor a service that has multiple hosts behind a load balancer.

    Thanks

    You have already a good solution able to see missing critical security patches.
    Why not doing same and showing end of life and extended support eol dates ?

  13. 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.

  14. Support Hyphens in Azure Monitor Log Ingestion/Log Analytics

    Currently Azure Monitor (formerly Log Analytics) does not support ingesting log file names including the hyphen symbol. Many applications generate log files with this name (often to handle date/time separations)

  15. Azure Monitor Metrics: Chart Multiple Public DNS Zones

    Before multiple resources can be charted, I am given instructions to "filter your view to one location."

    This is impossible with Public DNS Zones because all zone locations are set to global. Selecting any location filters out all zone resources.

    Use Case: Calculating query costs across all zones within an entire resource group, which is tied to a specific contract.

  16. Add image as log. So applications with images or video can log images and use log analytics for classification and predicting.

    Currently more and more applications are using images and videos like security aplocations. If this application can log images as part of application log which can be used in log analytics.

  17. Update Management from Azure Monitor

    Much like with having a single pane glass of view for Azure Monitor Alerts, Log Analytics Workspaces, Virtual Machines etc... it would also be great to have a central Update Management view that spanes multiple Update Management solutions and Automation Accounts

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Document Azure Monitor security model

    There does not seem to be a good reference as to the security model for Azure monitoring at the moment I am making assumptions which is not great when designing an architecture.

    Presumably there is only a level of data in the alert (ie not contextual in terms of IP addresses, database names, contains data from system etc?).

    In terms of the above if not where is data stored (presumably it is shared and not dedicated to a subscription), who has access to this data.

    These are questions we will be asked in terms of compliance, i cant see anything…
