    Need bi-directional integration for Azure Monitor with ITSM solution, following should be the features,
    1. When auto ticketing triggered from smart groups of azure monitor, once ticket created in ITSM solution, the incident number should be updated in one of the field in Azure monitor view.
    2. When an engineer worked on the ticket and closed the incident, it should close the respective smart group.
    3. When ticket triggered from smart group to ITSM, all the underlying alerts also should copied to the work note of the ticket.

  3. Allow email notifications to be sent directly to Microsoft Teams

    Right now the only way to send alert notifications to MS Teams is by either using a logic app or sending emails to a specific user then forwarding them to a Teams channel. Please consider implementing a functionality that will allow Azure alert notifications to be sent directly to MS Teams

  4. 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

  5. Setting old autoscale rule to disabled to not block autoscale when new autoscale profile is deployed with arm templates

    When autoscaling rules exist on a service (cpu based for instance) and a new one is deployed with the help of an arm template there is no clarity in which rule is actually working, if any of them are enabled at this point.
    My suggestion to fix this is to disable the old rule if the new rule arrives to autoscale with enabled equals to true. If not, keep the old one as it is.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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. 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.

  13. 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

  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. Web App for Containers Monitoring

    I would like better support for container monitoring in Web App for Containers so that Docker logs (lifecycle, etc) are more available. Perhaps better integration with Application Insights and / or integration with Container Insights..

  16. monitor for container should allow log filtering

    For monitoring containers in AKS, It would be usefull to be able to filter the logs that will be stored in the OMS Workspace. Some logs (from certain pods for example) are not relevant for me in the OMS Workspace, but I would like to access them with 'kubectl logs...' command.
    Now I need to disable them, not to generate extra OMS costs.

  17. Log Alert can not mail notification about resolved or closing status

    Log alert will not be notified if alert is set to Close.
    Metric alerts can be notified when an alert is closed.
    Why does not log alert work the same way?

    Customers expect the same mechanism.
    Or are you planning to be installed in the future?
    Customers are comparing with Zabbix.
    If Azure can do the same thing as Zabbix, customers think that it is easy to switch from Zabbix.

  18. Remove the requirement to use the bin() function for KQL queries feeding a 'Metric measurement' alert rule

    The following KQL is not accepted in the a 'Metric measurement' alert rule's GUI, as it does not employ the bin() function (nor does it need to):

    Heartbeat
    | where OSType == 'Windows'
    | summarize TimeOfLastHeartbeat = arg_max(TimeGenerated, Computer) by SourceComputerId
    | extend AggregatedValue = ((now() - TimeOfLastHeartbeat) / 1m)
    | render table

    I ended up having to feed in the following query for it to work:

    Heartbeat
    | where OSType == 'Windows'
    | summarize arg_max(TimeGenerated, Computer) by SourceComputerId
    | extend Age = bin(((now()-TimeGenerated) / 1m),1)
    | summarize AggregatedValue = max(Age) by Computer, bin(TimeGenerated,1s)
    | render table

    I think that…

  19. Ignore completed jobs when evaluating Cluster Status for Container Insights

    Container Monitoring Solution UI shows false Critical / Warning status for AKS clusters with completed jobs.

    Those jobs are counted towards "Stopped user pods" on Cluster Overview, causing false critical indicators and making overview screen non-informative to those who have at least few jobs running.

    However, drill down to the Pods / Containers level for the cluster in false Critical state shows no errors or warning - as it shows job pods as Green/Completed.

    Please make the critical/warning check consistent with details grid and exclude stopped jobs from "failed" pods counter.

  20. elastic pool alerts cannot be created in new metric alerts
