  1. Make Alert Windows Resizable

    Would like it so the Alert window is resizable as when I use Edge or Chrome I can't resize the alert window.

          • Change the label for CustomFields 1-10 to something more read able, eq Asset Id

            On Alerts it would be nice to have the possibility to change the label of the columns name to something more read able, eq 'Custom Field 1' to 'Asset Id'

            • Azure MP and Log Analytics MP

              These two management packs break each other when deployed together. BOTH management packs require workarounds to fix an issue with Microsoft.IdentityModel.Clients.ActiveDirectory, and they are each dependent upon 2 different versions of that assembly, so it is impossible to configure both at the same time without continuously swapping out these .dlls. Additionally, both management packs come up with many missing assemblies, which have to be copied from other locations to get them to work at all. Where is the quality control?

                  • Create new channel for subscriptions - REST API

                    When creating a new subscription, it would be nice not to rely on custom scripts but have custom HTTP API webhook to send the alert to. Webhooks seem to be a standard way in 2019, and would give a nice refreshment to next iteration of SCOM.

                        The new REST API should expose the ability to use Maintenance Mode. This would make it easier to use Maintenance Mode programmatically

                        • Agentless objects representing virtual cluster servers should ideally be situated under the node that currently hosts them

                          Agentless objects under “Administration\Device Management\Agentless Managed” representing virtual cluster servers should ideally be situated under the node that currently hosts them.

                          As it stands, the objects reside under the cluster node that they were first discovered on. This is highly confusing for the user.

                              • Allow dynamic grouping of all objects that are associated with a given criteria

                                For better alert Distribution it would be great to be able to create dynamic Groups that contain all objects based on a given criteria. I create a Group, provide a servername as criteria for example and all objects that have a relation to the Server become members of the Group (SQL DBs, IIS Websites, Hyper-V Host, HDDs, etc.). Right now it his very hard to accomplish this task. This feature would be awesome.

                                • provide a way to select the Top N from a group when creating dashboards in 1807 Web Console Dashboard

                                  currently within the HTML5 dashboards you cannot selecta large group and display Top N , this can be selected per user but does not save across different users.

                                  Also when sorting columns with numerical values these need to be sorted numerically rather than as a string like being done at present

                                    • Azure Management Pack

                                      The Azure Management Pack needs serious performance improvements. We should not have to dedicate a management server to run a single management pack.
                                      Trying to run the Azure MP on a shared management server can cause SCOM to grind to a halt.

                                      • More functionality in the SCOM 2016 web console

                                        I understand that this is one of Microsoft's first passes with HTML 5, but really? Why isn't there a 'home' link when you use the alert link to first access the SCOM web console. One has to delete everything beyond /operationsmanager to get back to the other views. Also, why can we only select 1 object at a time (i.e. Windows computers, for maintenance mode and bulk alert management?

                                        Any plans for improvement? Is there a subscription that's available to tell me when new updates are available?

                                        • Improve User Role (Dashboards and Views) save performance

                                          Change permissions on Dashboards and Views takes forever to save, currently +/- 40 min. This seems to be related to the number of classes, relations and views in the database.

                                          This must be changed. It's not a workable situation that it would take 40 minutes to change just 1 view permission in 1 role.
