  1. Implement support for the standard Azure RM metrics interface with Get-AzureRmMetric

    We're implementing a monitoring system for our Azure infrastructure and need to be able to query metrics for resources via PowerShell. We're currently able to use Get-AzureRmMetricDefinition and Get-AzureRmMetric to query metrics for other resources on a per-resource basis, but Application Insights doesn't support this (I would think) standard Azure RM interface. Please add support for Azure RM's Metrics infrastructure to query all the metrics otherwise available in Application Insights.

    • Can we have line breaks allowed? The query will be more readable that way.

      It is really painful to write a query and go to edit it in Kusto. Could you guys allow line breaks.

      • 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.

        • Support Enterprise Library Console for Application Insights Diagnostics Logging

          Logging through Enterprise Logging Library is now possible through the NuGet package here: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.EntlibTraceListener/0.1.0-build00190.

          The main problem is that the Enterprise Library Console doesn't support this reference
          So as soon as we add a reference to Application Insights Diagnostics Logging, we can't use the Enterprise Library Configuration Console anymore

          • Ability to choose for which applications to receive Weekly digest emails

            I would like a remedy for the issue, described as "We can’t choose the application to get the Digest email. It is an automatic process , it will choose top two oldest applications from the subscription." by a support technician at Microsoft.

            • Support Authenticated User id in usage scenarios

              Support Authenticated User id in usage scenarios . For retention currently we are showing retention users value wrt user_Id column. It would be good if we can support user_AuthenticatedId. Similarly for other usage blade like users, session, workbook, funnel etc.

              • Show percentage between the failed requests and total requests for each URL

                In the new Failures tool (in Preview), would be useful if you could add the percentage between the failed requests and total requests for each URL

                • Rotating dashboard of metrics

                  I'd like to configure about 6 different live streams and then have a large monitor installed with a page that just rotates through the 6 live streams like once every 30 seconds. But even the ability to just create a full screen view with a bunch of URLs and have them rotate at some configurable timespan would be great. I can build one, but think this should just be part of the dashboard feature.

                  • Increase the size of the title on the Live Stream page

                    Resource name should be larger than the words 'Live Stream' - when this page is open for several resources on a monitoring dashboard further away, it's hard to tell which is which.

                      • Select multiple server to monitor the health of the servers

                        Currently we can only select one server which filters everything to that server., but I would also like to select multiple servers or all instances of a particular instance

                        • Add optional resource group filter to Live Metrics Stream

                          I would like to narrow my view down to only a single resource group when viewing the Live Metrics Stream. In my case I have similar assets deployed to different resource groups. Seeing them all together is good, but I would also like to see one (resource group's worth) at a time.

                                  • Formatted Copy/Paste from results grid

                                    I'd really like to copy-paste cells out of the result table, into a problem ticket or a wiki page.

                                    Of course you don't stop Ctrl+C copy, but what comes out is just a bunch of run-together text, not an HTML table. Can you improve this experience?

                                    • Add Cloud Role Name to Live Metrics Stream

                                      On the Live Metrics Stream, the list of servers is displayed.

                                      1. Allow to list a column called 'cloud role name' next to the server name. This makes it clear which server correlates with which server.
                                      2. Allow easy filtering of the entire page by 'cloud role name'.

                                      When multiple roles share a single application insights resource, it an be hard to figure out which server is doing what. Still, it makes sense to log in a single app insights resource in order to have the relation and querying benifits.

                                      • Export Workbooks as PDF

                                        It would be really useful to export workbooks as PDF so they can be shared with users that do not have access to the Azure Portal.

                                        • Ask for confirmation before updating the Application Insights Extension

                                          When an update is available to the Application Insights extension, an alert with a go.microsoft.com link is displayed. If a user clicks that, the extension is immediately updated. This causes downtime because the app service is restarted.

                                          The update should not be executed without asking the user for confirmation. It is NOT clear from UI that the update will start immediately, rather I expected it to take me to a "update page" from where I can see the new version info, etc.
