  2. The ability to add (& override) custom alert fields (1-10) associated with monitors, and not just rules

    These are easily available in the "Configure Alerts" section of the "Create Rule Wizard" dialog box (via "Custom alert fields..." button), but is nowhere to be seen in the "Create a unit monitor\Configure Alerts" wizard's dialog box.

  3. Displaying enum properties in console

    Operations manager console shows ID for enum properties instead of it's localized display string. I'd like to use it in SCOM management packs but I see that it doesn't realized properly, only in SCSM.

  4. The ability to set a schedule for ANY new or existing workflow, and allow for overriding the related parameters

    This functionality should be included as a base configuration for ALL workflows, with a default condition of running 7/24, but configurable for new workflows, and overridable for existing workflows in sealed MPs. Though one could re-create an existing workflow, supplementing it with the "System.SchedulerFilter" condition detection module, the administrative workload of doing so for any existing workflows is unacceptable. Also, the workflows should not run at all during non-running periods, as is currently the case with the "System.SchedulerFilter" condition detection module.

  7. Fix the rendering on more than one screen

    On multiple screens in TP5 SCOM the buttons don't show up. Some creative Tab + Enter seems to work with the invisible buttons.
    ie
    1) Add computers/groups to OMS - no search button.
    2) Computer and device management discovery - greyed out search buttons.
    3) Computer and device management - Administrative account - missing text
    4) Repair agents - missing button.

  8. Add scrolling or resizing to all Dashboard and Widget UI's

    When creating Widgets, some of interfaces do not have any scroll bars or ability to resize the UI and so it's very difficult to select an object in a list. For example, when creating a 'Objects by Performance' widget, when selecting the performance counter, some instance names are very long and so there is no way to choose because the names are truncated, hence I am unable to use the widget.

  9. SCOM-OMS prerequisites checker tool

    Tool which can be used to do prerequisite check for connection between Agent/MS and OMS.
    Based on firewall requirements:
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt484101.aspx
    including option for Proxy server and Proxy user account.
    It would be a great help for deployment and troubleshooting scenarios

  10. Fix the sort by date in the SCOM Console

    Today, the SCOM console fails to properly sort columns throughout the UI. For instance, if sorting by created date for something like Web Application Monitors, it sorts by on integer value, not based on date time.

  11. Monitor State View/Widget

    It would be great to have state views/widgets which show the state of a particular monitor instead of the health of a class.

  12. Create Configurable Discovery Groups Under Agent Managed

    I had a customer suggest that it would be nice to have groups that are configurable with Queries. The queries can target OUs, use PowerShell, target AD Queries, Use SCCM Collections, etc. The basic methods are nice but more automation around deploying agents is needed.

    For Large Management Groups it becomes difficult to sort through the huge list of servers in Agent Managed, being able to break it up would be mush easier to manage agents.

  13. visio

    Visio 2016 SCOM Addin support for creating dashboard, or integrate something like this into SCOM without needing Visio. I supported a number of customers that want this but are unaware of the feature until I present it to them as part of their requested solution.

  15. Health Explorer: Grey out "Recalculate Health" unless a monitor has OnDemandDetection

    Most unit monitors in MPs do not have OnDemandDetection implemented. Hence clicking on "Recalculate Health" in Health Explorer will not provide the results an operator might expect.
    Please consider greying that button out should a monitor only feature RegularDetection.

  17. Add a "State Change" connector framework

    Just like the Alert Framework connector, it would be helpful to have a stream with state changes for external processing. Some monitors do not generate alerts but it would be helpful to get a feed of the state changes to process external responses.

  18. Write perf.data to DB when alert has been raised.

    It would be great to see the current value of a perf.counter in the perf.views (and reports) when an alert has been raised independently of the perf.collection rules schedule and data optimization setting.

    Then the discussions about the difference would finally come to an end.

  19. Alerts should contain source MP

    subj

    There are no problems with m$ mp`s, but sometimes it too long to find source mp in case of custom mp`s

    Also, in some cases we need to find source mp FAST

  20. Remove at (least the) dutch language from the console

    When editing MP's the Dutch language settings keep coming back. Please remove them from scom, I don't believe anyone in the Netherlands is using them.
