UNIFYMonitor was developed to act as a branded portal to host content driven by PowerBI and Azure. While working on a client who has requirements for alert monitoring through UNIFYMonitor it was raised that the alerts we deliver to the client are branded and sent from Microsoft Azure. It would be preferable if the alerts, like our dashboards, are branded as UNIFY products.
The Log Analytics team have stated (here) that they plan on incorporating email/sms templates into the platform; however, there is no stated timeline or information on what level of customisation will be available.
Alerts have several forwarding options when triggered, including the ability to send json to Azure Functions, making it relatively easy to send data to any forwarding service we may configure/develop.
In the case of this project work we plan on using Ivanti as a tool to reformat and forward the alerts we send via Azure Log Analytics.
This item has been roadmapped for the current project.
AMS should incorporate the FIM/MIM reporting currently used for health checks on support contracts.
UNIFYMonitor will provide an SDK for end services to integrate.
When testing login/logout functionality in applications, there should be a low level verification that the login was as expected such as checking SAML messages, id tokens etc
Thanks for the suggestion, Ravneel. I've added this to the backlog.
I believe that the dropdowns on Monitor could do with some minor changes, in particular:
- user-select: none;
- cursor: pointer;
This item will likely be not applicable with the new project, and is not worth fixing for the current solution.
Currently the clients logo is presented in the dashboard. There is an undefined issues where-by the logo sometimes doesn't appear. To remove this issue altogether it would be best to remove the logo element from the dashboard granting more real estate for other metrics. The logo is still a nicety so It would be good to show it near the name of the client dashboard at the top of the screen or perhaps in place of the name..
This functionality has been added and is now live in the production site of monitor. There is now an action on the operations team to remove the logo tiles from the dashboards to create space for other more useful metrics
Currently there is an ingestion limit of 1 MB active on the Dev ingestion service. For a couple of dashboards in the Dev instance of UNIFYMonitor, the data being pushed in each package is much larger than 1 MB and all incoming packages fail to be ingested into Data Explorer. Development can not be done on these dashboards as no current data is available.
I'm currently experiencing an issue in DEV whereby when loading a dashboard an error occors and the dashboard stops loading. Additionally all subsequent widgets also provide an error when attempting to load individually.
So far i have been able to narrow this down to DEV and not a data issue. This is because production and dev dashboards are being sent the same data and the dashboard loads fine in DEV. The issue also hasn't always been in DEV. Previously the dashboard was working fine, though I cannot recall the exact point it stopped working.
If you need me to do any further testing just let me know. I'll include the errors below in a comment.
Thanks for your help
I have an alert in prod that doesn't appear to be triggering. I am certain the relevant data is in there but cannot confirm for sure. I've tried testing the alert, recreating but i cannot get an alert to actually send an email. If you could provide any information on troubleshooting or if this is a known issue letting me know, that would but much appreciated.
Found to be a problem with the specific query, rather than the alerts.
