  1. multiple schedules on maintenance schedules or a copy function

    Currently you can only set 1 schedule for a maintenance schedules... it'll be good to have multiple like sql jobs, or ability to copy the same schedules and paste.

  2. Service Level Tracking - Add 'Business Hours'

    Please add the ability to define 'business hours' or schedules when authoring SLO objects. This would allow SLO tracking of objects only at given times or schedules to match business needs.

  3. Expose Maintenance Mode in SCOM 1801 REST API

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

  5. Authoring tools - please create extension for VSCode

    Hello! I think it would be great if you created VSCode extension that adds to authoring of Management Packs - features like intellisense, class definitons and so on. I guess VSCode would be a nice tool to edit XML files, if it had proper definitions.

    Thanks!

  7. IM alerting to Microsoft Teams

    Dear developers,
    it would be great to see IM SCOM integration with Microsoft Teams, so IM alerting can be done for those who have migrated from SfB to Teams.

    At the moment the only option is to either have SFB server onpremise and send IM notifcations to Teams/SFB Online or to use Hooks in Teams which isn't perfect because it actually sends posts on Teams Channel rather than sending IMs to people on Teams.

    Hopefully IM notifications support for Teams will come one day.

  8. Active Alerts view - not refreshing in non-IE browsers

    Ever since SCOM 1801, the Active Alerts view in WebConsole does not refresh automatically in non-IE browsers (Edge, Chrome, Firefox, etc.). An updated 'MonitoringBundle.js' file was provided by Microsoft support which made it work in modern browsers. But even in SCOM 2019, this issue is not fixed and I had to use the workaround script file. Could this be implemented as default for all versions? Internet Explorer may be hardly used anymore in the IT community.

  9. Support for Windows Server 2019 agents on SCOM 1807

    Please, provide support for Windows Server 2019 agents on SCOM 1807. I could bet it works fine, but haven't tested yet
    I can't migrate to SCOM 2019, as I still have to monitor some 2008 agents (that will still take some time to migrate)

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  15. Make the SCOM Console Windows Stop Disappearing

    Working in the SCOM console, when closing a window the console will occasionally disappear. You have to go to the task bar to find it and re-select the window.

    To reproduce this; First make sure the SCOM Console is full screen. Then click on an alert created by a rule. In the alert details, open up the rule by clicking on it.

    Then click Configuration, and View.

    Then close both windows.

    The SCOM Console will disappear.

  16. UNIX/Linux Management Pack Updates via SCOM 2012 R2

    We generally check the catalog regularly for updated Management Packs in SCOM 2012 R2. The catalog is currently showing what appear to be incorrect versions of the MPs for the customers still on 2012 R2:

    It might be a good idea to correct this, since these versions will break UNIX/Linux monitoring in SCOM 2012 R2, at the very least agent deployment will be broken.

  17. 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.

  18. SCOM 2019: creating Web Console Widgets - I would like to specify groups of servers via a .csv text file but I cannot find an import functio

    SCOM 2019: When creating Web Console Widgets - I would like to specify a group of servers via a .csv text file but I cannot find an import function - I seem to only be able to search for 1 server at a time. It seems an enterprise product would have a text file import button. Tks

  19. SCOM CI-connector keeps setting Logical Disks to Pending Delete

    I can only assume the SCOM team is responsible for the SCOM CI-connector as well.

    We're seeing a lot of disks being marked as "pending delete" from SCOM, and having them being set to Active again with the SCCM connector. In this case, the SCCM connector is correct. This poses problems since we use the disk size reported from SCCM to produce sizing reports and forecasts.
