  1. Add support for viewing raw body requests

    It would be great to see raw body request on analytics. Good for monitoring restful api calls (for example json payloads)

  2. Variable data retention (longer or shorter than the 90-day default)

    Please provide longer retention for raw data. I'm willing to pay for (the additional azure storage)!

    Application Insights variable retention is in active development now with release planned the first half of 2019.

    The first iteration of this feature will allow setting retention up to 2 years in several increments for each Application Insights resource (e.g. not by data type). The pricing for this will follow the same Azure Monitor log data retention pricing as used by Log Analytics.

    We will be able to onboard a limited number of customers manually in the coming weeks. If you’re interested, please send me (dalek@microsoft.com) the instrumentation key(s) of your Application Insights resource(s), and the desired retention duration (30, 60, 120, 180, 270, 365, 550 or 730 days).

    Thank you
    Dale Koetke

  3. Add support for Intranet application testing (not just via Internet). E.g., via NTLM

    App Insights works great for externally-facing applications. Would like the same rich experience for Internal/Intranet applications.

    With the release of Azure Functions 2.0, the previously posted template no longer works.

    However, we recognize the need for this request, and are actively scoping and prioritizing the work needed to make it happen.

    I am very interested in speaking with anyone who needs this feature to learn more about your scenarios, particularly any information around cost issues. If you would like to help me scope this feature, please reach out: mogrobin@microsoft.com.

  4. Add support for Redis (via StackExchange.Redis) for dependency monitoring.

    We already have great support for SQL and HTTP dependency monitoring and I think adding Redis would be a great addition. A good start would be monitoring through the StackExchange.Redis library.

  5. Support source maps in JavaScript exceptions

    Consider a large modern javascript application. Without seeing actual stack traces, diagnosing problems is really hard.

    We currently have the following setup:
    - Source maps are generated during build time and stored in private BLOB containers. We don't want to share sourcemaps for private projects with the world.
    - When JavaScript exception occurs, we gather the stack traces (using other js libraries such as stacktrace.js) and send a message to our backend service. This backend service finds appropriate source maps (it depends on client app version), prepares the de-obfuscated stack trace and logs a monitoring event.

    It would be nice…

  6. server response time needs to ignore signalr

    The average response time metric is not very useful if it is counting signalr persistent connections. I can't filter out these requests in the default dashboard graphs and it's a pain to filter it out in every single graph I create. There needs to be a way to ignore certain patterns from being tracked.

  7. Enable deploying shared queries via ARM

    We have multiple application insights instances (test, acc, prod) and want to configure them as Infrastructure as Code using ARM templates. It seems to be possible to add alerts to the templates, however I'm not able to add our share queries from our insights analytics to an ARM template. To be able to redeploy and keep track of our queries we want be able to add the developed queries in our ARM templates and deploy them as IAC.

  8. Turn-off Smart Detection by Default in App Insight

    We love the Smart Detection feature and the capabilities it offers. However, we have been getting numerous complaints about email notifications. Some of the alerts are turned on by default and get sent to users of the applications that are not part of the Enterprise Application Monitoring Team. Rather than having the alerts turned on by default, we would prefer an opt-in scenario, where the notifications were turned off by default, thereby preventing notifications from being sent to an inappropriate audience. Even though we have a script to turn the feature off, this is an additional administrative burden.
    Allowing for…

    Hi All,

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions!

    Following your feedback, we’re changing the default roles that receive email notifications from Smart Detection.

    Specifically, starting April 1, 2019, email notifications from Smart Detection will be sent only to users assigned to the subscription’s Monitoring Reader or Monitoring Contributor roles.

    More information about this upcoming change and how to prepare for it can be found here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/upcoming-change-to-azure-monitor-application-insights-smart-detection-emails/

    Thanks,
    Harel

  9. Add ARM template support for continuous export

    We can configure continuous export through PowerShell, but there is no way to do this through ARM templates currently. This would be very helpful.

    I use ARM templates to declare the desired state of my resource group. Every time I have to augment ARM templates with PowerShell commands, it gets much harder to deploy and test my deployment pipeline.

  10. Track SignalR traffic

    Right now, SignalR and WebSockets messages are invisible to AI. Worse yet, they count as a really long HTTP request. It would be nice to have a separate diagram in the Live Metrics Stream blade and everywhere else where successful or failed request are being displayed.

  11. Can AI support work item creation for on-premises TFS deployments?

    The existing work item creation integration flow targets hosted vsts accounts. Can AI also support work item creation for on-premises TFS deployments (as opposed to VSTS which is available now)?

  13. Enable collecting POST parameters by configuration

    When an exception happens and the details are captured on Application insight, it would be great if POST parameters were available as well.
    This feature can be turned off for certain pages via configuration r even posting an extra parameter like Ignore Post Parameters.
    This will make sure sensitive application data like login information is not captured.
    This feature can only work when a http POST ends up with a 500 error to assist debugging application, to make sure huge data is not captured and never used.

    There are natural PII concerns in auto-collecting POST parameters, and it’s something, as Dan mentioned, you can do yourself with telemetry initializer. That said, please keep upvoting so we can see how many folks are impacted by not having a more streamlined way of collecting POST parameters.

    We are working with the WAD2AI owners to see if IIS logs can be ingested that way, given that WAD already supports IIS log collection.

    Can you please clarify what are you looking to get out of the IIS logs? Most of the information in there is already available from the requests metadata we collect with AI.

  16. Where multiple app services send their telemetry to a single application insights instance, allow configuration of alerts at the app level.

    At the moment app insights alerts such a server exceptions do not differentiate which app service threw the exception if there are multiple app services talking to the same instance.

  18. Enable ARM support for API Access Keys

    I would like to deploy an entire solution based on App Insights which data is presented via a Web App:
    https://github.com/CatalystCode/bot-fmk-dashboard

    The web app I'm deploying will use the api of app insights to display insights and aggregated data in the form of graphs and metrics.

    For this to work, the web app needs to have access the app insights api and that can only be done via access keys.

    I want to enable customers to deploy the application with "one click arm deployment".

    Currently, after deployment, users have to create a key, copy app id and api key, open…
