  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.

    • Allow Application Insights Rest Api to return all data, even if the data = 0

      Currently Application Insights Rest Api doesn't return data that has a sum of 0, which makes generating graphs from the data incorrect and difficult.

      • App Insights API allow for customEvent name in $select query

        I'm trying out the Azure Application Insights REST API GET /events query through the (https://dev.applicationinsights.io/apiexplorer/events) and I can get a full query working fine and works with most $select parameters like 'user/id' but whenever I try 'customEvent/name' it brings back a null value for the item when I know there is a value whenever I get the full query with no $select parameter. Is there another way to grab this value through the select param? I'm using the select param in order to filter down the number of columns brought back that I don't need.

        Here is an…

        • Export to Power BI Query (M) from Azure Application Insights REST API

          It would be helpful for > 30 day report retention if the M Query to analyse the saved results in Power BI was also generated for the Blob Storage scenario. For example generate an M Query via API or portal which can read saved results from Azure Blob Storage or a string.

          For more details see: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/ca8083c7-59b9-49ed-8f79-e955e2f14e43/export-to-power-bi-query-m-and-azure-application-insights-rest-api?forum=ApplicationInsights

          • How to perform queries using the Azure API format: user authentication

            I want to get json data as explain in rest api doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/overview

            customEvents | where customDimensions.teamId == '8bcb0466-8227-4de4-b001-b70381b9cd04'

            As the rest api have limit of 15 call per min and 1500 per day as doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/Authorization/Rate-limits says to use Azure API and Azure Active Directory but there is no example available for that.

            I want to do it in node js but didn't find any sdk for the same.

            For AD authentication I used assport-azure-ad library.
            node.js azure active-directory ms-application-insights

            • Add duration to C# TrackPageView

              PageViews from javascript include page view load time, useful for tracking performance.

              PageViews in C# only have one parameter: name. This is a start, but we would like to know how long it takes each page in our WPF app to load from each of our users.

              We have the data in our app (time started, time end, and duration), but there is no good way of getting it to application insights. The TrackMetric method allows duration, but you can't select it in AI and look at custom properties nor can you search for it!

              Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/app-insights-api-custom-events-metrics#page-views

              • Create REST api for custom tracking i.e. trackEvent, trackView

                Create a REST api which will allow tracking methods to be called via a REST api.

                E.g POST methods for creating custom events https://dev.applicationinsights.io/api/trackevent

                • Implement push-style read API for Application Insights

                  Implement push-style read API for Application Insights.

                  API user could define a filter on Application Insights Events and/or Metrics, and then get data pushed into storage queue(s) / event hub(s).

                  • String comparison within JSON objects

                    I am logging entire JSON objects and I would like to query the API based on attributes of these objects. For instance I am logging request headers to the database and when I query the API I want to query something like:

                    traces | extend properties = customDimensions.req_headers
                    | where properties.["connection"] == "keep-alive"
                    | project timestamp, properties

                    Right now I am getting 0 results with that query. It is possible to click a small "+" button next to my "connection" field of the JSON object which adds exactly the line
                    | where properties.["connection"] == "keep-alive"
                    to my query so I…
