  2. De-Activate and Activate a Management Pack

    It would be handy to De-Activate a MP instead of deleting it. Or set a MP in maintenance.

  3. Design Scom to support Kusto language instead of SQL Query

    Currently we are able to collect monitoring data, Audit through ACS or dashboard deployment, either by Scom Console or VSAE or other partner tools. Depending on the dashboard and customer skill, it's a struggle to create these tasks and many give up and move for a easier competitor monitoring tool.
    With Kusto Language used by Azure Monitor, many customers had a good feedback because it's easier to create dasboards and query data. However some ones are restrict to use Cloud Solution due to company policy and prefer using on-premises solutions.
    Another barrier for using SQL query is a dependence from…

  6. Start-SCOMAgentMaintenanceMode should have -Force parameter

    Agent -initiated maintenance mode https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/manage-maintenance-mode-overview?view=sc-om-2019#enable-from-target-system-1 is great, however as of now it still forces an answer in the console prompt - preventing the use from automated scripts that run on target systems. Adding a -Force parameter that skips the "are you sure?" check would be very welcome and trivial to implement, without us having to reverse and simulate the behaviour to reach the same effect.

  7. Path, MP, Class, GUIDs, etc. Columns Needed in Numerous Screens

    - Groups: Add column for MP (where group is defined/stored)
    - Groups: add column to view "total members"
    - Group Explicit Members: Only the DisplayName of classes appear. There are many, many duplicate class names and it's nearly impossible to select the correct one. Add columns for MP and class Name.
    - Subscriptions: add column to view "subscription giud"
    - Performance View: when adding specific rules to a perf view only the DisplayName of the rules appear. Add columns for Name and MP.
    - Management Pack/Alert Tuning: Add path information
    - State Views: Add column for class Name and Monitoring…

  8. SCOM2016/2019 Web Consoles - Need Mgmt Group Name added to header bar

    Folks, we have multiple instances of SCOM running, many of which are accessed by the same teams. In the Web Console the Mgmt Group name is not visible anywhere on the screen and teams are finding it difficult to understand which console they are currently connected to. Can the Mgmt Group name be added to the header bar?

  12. 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.

  16. Prevent running MaintenanceMode from being overwritten

    Using the Maintenance Mode Scheduler that came with SCOM 2016 is pretty cool but there is no mechanism to detect if a server is already in MM. If we put a server in maintenance mode e. g. for 48 hours and someone else doesn't know this and schedules another MM let's say for 2 hours then the ealier scheduled MM of 48 hours will be overwritten and the MM ends after the 2 hours. So there should be a logic which checks if a MM is already set and how long. If the newly scheduled time period is shorter than…

  17. Solve Maintenance mode Conflict by use the furthest end time.

    Best way to explain is an exemple.

    I put a logical drive in Maintenance Mode for 60 Min.

    If my collegue put the windows Computer in maintenance WITH Child Iems for 15 min during my maintenance, My logical disk will be out of maintenance a the end on the Computer Maintenance.

    Normaly i expect the maintenance on my Logical disk should be end at his scheduled end time MINIMUM never Before.

    Thanks

  18. Audit SCOM User Role Actions

    There should be an option to turn on/off auditing on each of the user role types. We have a need to delegate override privileges to our users and would like to have some insight as to what they are changing and ensure the correct management packs are used for the storage of the overrides.

  19. Multi Select Alerts in Web Console

    Can we please have the ability to select more than one alert in the Web Console?

    At present (v1801), you can only select one update at a time

    This makes changing the likes of the Resolution State time consuming if there are a few of them..
