  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

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • 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.

                  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).

                    • 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().

                        • 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.

                            • 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
