Environment Filter

You can now filter your On-Demand Assessments by environments throughout the entire On-Demand Assessment flow, from Log Analytics, to the Services Hub On-Demand Assessment reports, and to the creation of your Assessment Remediation Program. In Log Analytics, you can see all of your environment data at once or filter by your individual environments to hone in on specific environment details to understand and resolve your issues. The environment filter works across focus areas and down to the affected object detail level. The environment flows down to your “Download All Recommendations” report on the Services Hub On-Demand Assessment page. Once you download the Excel report, you can filter by which environments you want to view, create pivot tables, and see your data the way you want. Also, when you create your Assessment Remediation Program, you will now be able to create your program based on specific environments within your On-Demand Assessment. This gives you the ability to focus on certain environments to remediate against as you resolve those recommendations first.

Log Analytics

On the Services Hub Primary Navigation, click IT Health and then select On-Demand Assessments.

Click on any On-Demand Assessment tile and then select View All Recommendations.

The new Log Analytics Environment filter is located above the focus areas. Click the drop down box and select the environments that you want to see. The UI for all focus areas data will change based on the environment(s) that you choose.

On-Demand Assessment Excel Report

After selecting an On-Demand Assessment tile from the On-Demand Assessments page, select Download All Recommendations.

Once the report has downloaded, open the Excel report and you will see a column titled Environments. You may filter by this column and use power of Excel to see your data the way that you want including your environment data.

The PPT report is a consolidated report for all environments.

Note

During the setup task, you have the option to add an “environment” friendly name. This is the name by which the assessed environment is identified when you review your results. If you do not set it, the environment name will be “See below chart for default names”, i.e. contoso.com. Use the “-environmentname” option in the setup command when you want to use a more friendly name.

Options that are available to you during setup are:

  • EnvironmentName
    • Add a friendly name for your environment (See below chart for default names) which can be used in the environment filter when you review your results.
  • AssessmentID
    • A GUID that identifies this assessed environment. If you omit it, we generate one for you.
  • ManagementGroup
    • Include the name of the ManagementGroup to which the Microsoft Monitoring Agent has been linked.

You will not be prompted for the above options; if you do not set them, default settings are used. Below are the default settings.

Technology Criteria
AD, ADSec forest name
Azure and O365 assessments tenant domain
Exchange organization name
SCCM central site name
