  1. Lost default dashboard, can't recreate it or create a new one

    Site says:

    Dashboard not found
    Dashboard 'Dashboard' no longer exists.

    Right before the dashboard's death, I've tried to change the timespan for the Application Insights tile, and Dashboard asked me if I want to save settings or not. As I didn't intend to change it, I said no, and, voila, my dashboard is gone.

  2. Allow Application Insights to filter on custom data

    Request filtering in Application Insights should allow you to see and filter your custom data on the request sent in the telemetry.

    To repo, click a request and see DeveloperMode already in the Custom Data portion of the Request details. Now go to prior blade listing the Requests and click Filter, see that you cannot filter Custom Data properties. This is really unfortunate because I have critical data passed as a custom property via an ITelemetryInitializer implementation that I need to filter by.

  3. ability to filter our 401 Failed Requests in Application Insights

    When monitoring an application that uses NT Auth 401 request failures are expected because it is part of the authentication process. But it makes it really hard to find real failed requests because their are so many 401 failures in the failed request section.

  4. Point traces to source code

    After clicking over a trace entry in the azure portal in search results, I'd like the portal to load the source code in visual studio and point me to the line of code where my trace was written. If i don't have a build server, i just want to load the source code my symbols files are pointing the assemblies to.

  5. Oracle BPM and Oracle ADF

    We're developing a BPM application to be run on Weblogic, and all the tutorials point to using Oracle ADF for rendering the task forms. My question is: is it feasible to use some other framework other than Oracle ADF for this? We're not really that familiar with either Oracle BPM or Oracle ADF (https://tekslate.com/oracle-adf-training/), but we can't avoid using Oracle BPM (contract reqt), so we would like to see if we can avoid Oracle ADF instead to minimize the learning effort.

  6. 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…

  7. 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

  9. Add web hooks for Application Insights alerts.

    SQL Azure alerts have an option to add web hooks but this option is missing from Application Insights. It would be really useful to add this for custom notifications.

  11. Application Insights alerts useless with multiple directories

    Application Insight alert links that are sent to you via email are useless when you have multiple directories. You click on the link, which opens a browser, which prompts you to log in. Then you're taken to the wrong directory and given an "access denied" message.

    Sure, it's easy to switch to the correct directory at that point, which prompts another login. However, whatever your emailed alert was trying to show you is gone now, and almost impossible to find again.

  12. The application insights should get deleted as I delete a web app

    Also if there is a DB associated it should at least ask if I want to delete it.

  13. Allow the creation of a Application insight tile showing just a metric

    Hi,

    It should be nice to be able to just show one or many metric on a tile (for instance "avg page load last 24h") without the graph.

  14. Missing webhooks in availability test alerts

    When creating an alert in the Web Service > Tools > Alerts blade, there is a Webhook field, but when creating the web test in the Application Insights > Availability blade this field is missing and you can only configure to send an e-mail notification.

  15. Success criteria content text gets currupted when editing a web test

    I've created a web test in the App Insights > Availability blade with the following text in the "Content must contain" field:
    a&amp;b
    This test succedes.
    When I click "Edit test" and go to Success criteria, the text in the "Content must contain" field is invalid:
    a&b
    If I save the test, it starts to fail because the page contains a&amp;b but not a&b.

  16. TelemetryClient.Flush should be synchronous

    Everybody else uses Flush() to describe a synchronous flush. AI should also send synchronously. The call is pretty useless otherwise.

  17. (Near) Realtime refresh of Application Insight's blades

    The teams at my company use Application Insights to track all sorts of data. Each team room has a screen where the AppInsights can b displayed. Problem is, the data isn't auto refreshed by the portal, you have to manually refresh it. And if you add a browser extension to auto reload the tab, the charts are not being displayed after the browser refresh. So, no way to have the data being auto refreshed.

    Can't you sprinkle some SignalR magic to the portal? :)

    Thanks you in advance!

  20. AppInsights Java client should not write to System.err during startup

    AppInsights writes the following line to System.err during startup:
    AI: INFO 17-11-2015 23:53, 21: Configuration file has been successfully found as resource

    This shouldn't be written to System.err, but to System.out. Or not at all.
