  1. time series insights additional retention options

    It would be great if you could analyze historic data with time series insights. Right now the data retention policies are either 90 days or 30 days depending on plan. It would be great to offer an option, that was just X million data points, regardless of date.

          • Allow URL name in the email subject generated by Application Insights web test

            When creating a new web test in AI, the "." (period character) is not allowed in the test name, meaning you cannot type in the URL name that do "contain the period character" for example www.abc.com
            This will result in the email notification being sent out without the URL name in the email subject, the recipient of the email notification wouldn’t know which website is down until he/she scrolls all the way down in the message

              • Cognitive services API documentation demos, code and basic how-tos are thin

                discouraged to use Azure and cognitive services because of lack of documentation and how-tos to use cognitive services.
                currently documentation is not linked to azure its on some other portal.
                most of it is how to migrate to new versions not use the current versions.

                • allow me to set a high water and low water value for scaling alerts.

                  Right now if you have alerts setup for scaling on an AppService you get an email or webhook alert for EVERY scaling event. I would like to be able to set a high water value that if the number of servers is >= to a value like 6 it would send out the alert email. I know my processes will scale during the day and that is expected behavior, I only want to know when it gets out of control. The low water would be used to clear the alert. When it comes back down and is < this value…

                          • Fresh satellite imagery and computing platform for spatial algorithms

                            Amazon has NEX, Google has their Earth Engine Platform.

                            Microsoft needs a product on Azure to first of all provide fresh satellite imagery from Landsat and Sentinel-2 for their customers to use for free - but more importantly a Big Data compute platform that allows developers to run their own Geospatial Algorithms on.

                            You could also add ready made recipes that can do the heavy lifting for developers to "fill in the blanks" and use in their own products.

                            Could be amazing!

                              Would be great if "Key Vault" wasn't hidden behind "Additional services". I think it's important enough to deserve its own category.

                              • Application Insights not recording telemetry when added through Extensions in the portal

                                I created an application insights resource and then tried to link it to one of my web apps through the add Extensions option in the Azure portal. But, I was not able to see any telemetry being generated for the web app, even after 24 hours.

                                It however worked for me in another web app, but this time I had added the application insights using NuGet package in Visual Studio, instead of adding the extensions in the portal.

                                • Offer a clustered PostgreSQL as a Service

                                  We use PostgreSQL as the "cheap" option for some of our corporate applications.

                                  We would like to move some to the cloud using a PaaS model both for the applications and databases.

                                  Amazon and IBM are offering PosgtreSQL as a service. We would love to have the same offering from Microsoft in Azure.

                                  Thanks in advance!

                                  • Add integration with "Let's Encrypt"

                                    Let's Encrypt offers low cost certificate authority services. They would be a great resource to integrate with for use in Azure Web Apps among other Azure services.

                                    • send grid reset password

                                      cannot reset password for sendgrid.
                                      In the new version of azure portal the password cannot be changed without having the existing password,

                                      And now a new field was added: existing password. Because of this newq field it is not possible to recover the password.
                                      Contacted Send Grid tech team and said that this is a Microsoft Problem because this is a Azure Account.
                                      Contacted Microsoft and the problem was not solved and said it is…
