  1. 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

  2. Return Export ID on Application Insights Continuous Export creation

    Currently, creating a Continuous Export via the API or Go SDK returns a list of all continuous export configurations on success.

    It would be better if it returned only the export configuration just created, or only the Export ID for the configuration just created, so the user knows the Export ID of the new export configuration.

    Please see https://github.com/Azure/azure-sdk-for-go/issues/4745 for more details.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  3. Support exception.Data.Add()

    The Exception class allows us to add custom data using exception.Data.Add("label", "value"). It would be useful if this data could show up in Application Insights.

    Using telemetry.TrackException() we can report custom data in a very similar way as a Dictionary<string,string>, so hopefully it wouldn't be much work to support exception.Data.Add().

    The advantage would be that the custom data would be supported for exceptions that are caught and rethrown, as well as those using telemetary.TrackException().

  4. Bring back the HockeyApp Bridge as long as Visual Studio App Center does not support all Platforms

    The HockeyApp can be used from windows desktop applications which is what some people still do. While Visual Studio App Center does not support any Desktop Application type.

    Can we get back the HockyApp Bridge untill AppCenter is usable for our purpose?

  5. 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…

  6. Raise the 500,000 row limit on the Azure Log Analytics REST API

    https://dev.loganalytics.io/documentation/Using-the-API/Limits currently lists 500,000 as the limit in the number of rows a query can return. It would be helpful if we could raise this limit to make it easier to create PowerBI dashboards which slice and dice historical data, where in aggregate the raw data exceeds 500k rows. In practice this allows the dashboards to look further back in time.

  8. Data Purger role should respect Azure role-based access control (RBAC)

    We have an AD Group which has been granted Data Purger role through the resource group containing all of our development AI resources.

    However, it seems like the Purge API does not respect this. Instead, we would need to set explicit permissions for each user on each of the AI resources which is not an option in the management perspective.

  9. Make available REST APIs to create and fetch the API Key for Application Insights.

    Currently API Key needs to be created either from the portal or there is a powershell command available for it. However no REST API exists for same. As part of Azure REST support for Web Framework I think and strongly believe, support for such crucial services must be added to the REST.

    Thank You.

  10. 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…

  11. Better support for containerized / Kubernetes environment (sidecar)

    Run application insights as a sidecar that can be deployed alongside app that has logs directed to it. This aligns more closely with how other logging aggregators perform in a containerized / Kubernetes environment.

    This would alleviate burden of configuring app insights for multiple microservices (one time setup), provide consistency, and would make app insights even more available to every kind of container you are running as it is much more generic.

    i don't know if the Kubernetes API gives this ability but i wonder if app insights could register itself as an interceptor and apply metadata to correlate telemetry…

  12. Enable webhook callback on Exceptions

    Currently work item creation is only limited to GitHub and VSTS, well we can't switch our SCM and Project Management just to use Ai.

    If you enable a webhook, we can write custom hook to create work items and track them on our own.

  14. 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).

  15. Create an option to embed Application Map in PowerBi dashboard

    It would be nice if it's possible to embed the Application Map in PoweeBi dashboard, and even better if the application map can be consumed through an API call.

  16. Remove the API limit of 500,000 rows / 64 MB of data, or have the API return an error message or an empty dataset

    The current way the API handles the 500,000 row / 64 MB data limit is a problem when querying data from Application Insights into Power BI. As of the moment, no indication is given in Power BI if the API limit is exceeded and partial data is returned. That leaves every Power BI dashboard based on Application Insights unreliable and potentially misleading. If raising the API limit is not an option, then please have Application Insights return an error message or an empty dataset, so it becomes evident for the dashboard manager that the API limit has been exceeded, allowing…

  17. application insight rest api - allow filter on ingressTimestamp

    Currently the rest api does not allow to do the filter using "le", "ge" etc. IngressTimestamp which is part of CustomDimension item. I guess this is because it is treating ingressTimestamp as string field. It allows for eq operator but does not allow le gt etc. This is useful for pulling the incremental data from the application insight. we cannot rely on the timestamp field because some records are back filled. if we rely on timestamp to do the incremental extract then we miss some records

  19. Add support for programmatic cohort creation (e.g. via PowerShell)

    I would like to create a release pipeline which creates and configures a new AppInsights resource. Anyhow, I cannot find any option to do the AppInsights configuration. Example: Cohort creation. I cannot find how this can be done automatically via a release pipeline.

  20. Incorrect response on API call Microsoft.Insights/components when subscription do not contain any application insights components

    If calling the api endpoint for listing all Application insights components in a subscription and there is none, the returned json is [] (an empty array)

    GET https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/providers/Microsoft.Insights/components?api-version=2015-05-01

    This will not be deserializeable by the client since it expects an object (not an array) and will thus throw an exception.

    Using the Management c# nuget package (Microsoft.Azure.Management.ApplicationInsights v 0.2.0-preview) will show this by throwing the exception below

    Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializationException: Cannot deserialize the current JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) into type 'Microsoft.Azure.Management.ApplicationInsights.Management.Models.Page`1[Microsoft.Azure.Management.ApplicationInsights.Management.Models.ApplicationInsightsComponent]' because the type requires a JSON object (e.g. {"name":"value"}) to deserialize correctly.
    To fix this error either change the JSON to…
