  1. Ability to send Error Notifications to Slack or Custom Email Address

    Currently, alerts can only be sent to the email of someone's personal account. But we would prefer not to create cloud accounts for all developers and operators. Instead, we'd like to send errors caught by stackdriver to a slack room or to a group email account (just as is done for errors caught by the normal stackdriver utility).

    The documents mention setting up a "forward" from your gmail account, but this is hacky and doesnt work for users that don't have access to a gsuite address

  2. Add ability to copy stackdriver dashboard between projects

    A pretty common setup is to have a gcp project for dev and prod environments. It would be great to have an ability to setup service dashboard in one gcp project(dev) and later copy dashboard as template for another gcp project.

  3. Don't adjust selected time when changing timezones

    When using the date selector, I often enter the time I want to look at first (because it is at the top), and then select the timezone after. After selecting the timezone, the time is automatically adjusted based on the original timezone. I would argue that this is rarely what the user wants, because they explicitly changed the timezone because it was incorrect. I often end up having to revert the auto adjusted time after changing timezones.

  4. In timezone selection, add shortcuts for UTC and local (system) timezone

    95% of the time I just want to switch between my local timezone (PST) and UTC. It is annoying to have to scroll through the list of all timezones. It would save a lot of time if there were shortcut buttons to change between UTC and local time (based on the user's system timezone).

  5. Ability to stop loading more logs

    Logs take a LOOOONG time to load if they are not from the past 24h, often times taking longer to load than the real time taken to log them (e.g. 5 minutes to load 2 minutes worth of logs). This makes finding logs tough, but it adds the complication of constantly updating the list once you have found the logs you want because it takes hours (literally) to complete whatever arbitrary amount of time it decided to attempt to load because you scrolled to the top/bottom and it triggered more loading. It causes the page to constantly change where the…

  7. Ability to pause a Stackdriver export

    It would be nice if you could 'pause' a Stackdriver export. Especially when it's sending records to a pub/sub queue for external processing.

    Right now, when we have a problem where we want to stop processing logs, we edit the export filter to include a condition that we know will not match any results. This ensures we do not try and process ongoing logs while we look into the problem. Once the problem is resolved, we edit the filter again to remove the fake condition and the export resumes working as expected.

    Limiting edits to the filters would reduce the…

  8. Allow dashboards to be organized into folders

    Currently, the dashboards in the side panel are in one big list of all dashboards in the project, which makes it hard to find a single dashboard without a bunch of scrolling. It would be nice to have those dashboards organized via folders, so we could organize related dashboards together and make them easier to find.

    Similar to grafana's dashboard folders: https://grafana.com/docs/reference/dashboard_folders/

  9. Log Viewer : more readable logs

    I see logs viewer is transforming our logs, some characters like " and carry returns are shown as " and \n, so, that makes the logs harder to read, so, for legacy applications some rework is required to find a way to make the logs readable when going to log viewer.
    So, I think it is very important to find a way to make the logs showable as they are generated on the source.

    example, what I expected to be shown as

    {

    "code": "201",
    
    "transactionTimestamp": 1571435347966,
    "data": {
    "prop1": {
    "prop2": {
    "booleanProp": false
    }
    }
    }

    }

    it…

  11. Allow deobfuscation in Stackdriver Profiler

    Our Java application is obfuscated by proguard by default, we'd like to use Stackdriver profiler but there is currently no option to use e.g. proguard maps to deobfuscate the profile samples. The Profiler dashboard should allow the user to load a obfuscation mapping to allow running safely obfuscated applications and still profiling them, keeping the obfuscation map only on the profiler platform and not on the instances themselves.

  14. Alert policies based on anomaly detection algorithms

    Up to now, only metric absence or metric threshold conditions are available in Alerting for SD Monitoring. Adding some anomaly detection algorithm can be helpful in some cases.

  15. Ability to filter GKE Namespaces

    I run several namespaces on my GKE clusters that generate errors that I do not care about, and several that I do.

    I'd like to be able to only be notified when errors are generated by specific GKE namespaces.

  18. Add an ability to comment lines on the "advanced logs filter" text area

    Currently, advanced logs filter area does not allow commenting filter lines to toggle between narrower and broader search.

    Something like:

    logName="projects/p/logs/hadoop-hdfs-namenode"

    would be very helpful

  19. Support for Dart

    In building an app with Flutter, GCP, and Firebase, it would be nice if Stackdriver Error Reporting was able to parse stack traces from Dart...could be an acceptable alternative to Crashlytics, which is not yet supported.

  20. Support Pub/Sub notifications on new Error report

    Today only e-mail notification or mobile app are supported.

    We want to send to Slack and possibly do other fancy logic with CI...

    We want to have Pub/Sub support to Cloud Function
