    • Application Insights on-prem web tests

      Are there plans to update Application Insights so that we can run web tests from on-prem locations in addition to the Azure locations? We have a need to monitor from within our network as well as outside the network.

      • Generate alerts in case web tests are not executed because of certain reason.

        In case, web tests are not executed in azure application insight there should be an alert generated which can specify the reason behind such incident.

                • Please fix web testing urls without a prefix (like example.com)

                  Currently you can't add a web test with an url like http://example.com
                  It will come up with the error: Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined

                  When adding a http://www.example.com which 302 redirecs to http://example.com,
                  the following exception is in the Web test result details "Exception" section:
                  System.UriFormatException: Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined.
                  at System.Uri.CreateThis(String uri, Boolean dontEscape, UriKind uriKind)
                  at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebTesting.HtmlDocument.ParseForDependentRequests(Boolean urlsOnly)
                  at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebStress.WebTestCaseVariation.BuildDependentRequestsList(WebTestInstrumentedTransaction instrumentedTransaction)

                  • Use public DNS servers in the same location as the test agents

                    Web tests are showing high page response times and also failures in Azure regions farthest from the test location when the URL is a *.trafficmanager.net name and there are multiple endpoints in many Azure regions worldwide. The test agents are using local DNS servers that are forwarding to DNS servers most in Redmond, WA when resolving public domain names and this is causing Azure Traffic Manager to send a response with an endpoint that is farthest from the actual test agent location.

                    Please take a look at the thread I started:

                    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/7efd2a25-0b11-497c-8020-7c5e932196aa/availability-requests-for-an-azure-traffic-manager-name-are-going-to-incorrect-azure-regions?forum=ApplicationInsights

                    • 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.

                        In order to help with adopting the SDK to send results from your custom availability tests, we have added a new Azure function template called “AppInsightsHttpAvailability-CSharp”. To find this, please select “Monitoring” in the scenario dropdown when you go to add a new Azure function from a template. You can get more information from its source here: https://github.com/Azure/azure-webjobs-sdk-templates/tree/dev/Templates/contents/AppInsightsHttpAvailability-CSharp.

                        You can replace the template test with any arbitrary test, use client certificates, deploy to an App service environment so it can access network protected applications.
                        Give it a run and let us know if it works for your scenarios. Also, what other templates would you like us to provide? We are looking at providing a Docker template with Selenium and AI SDK baked in. I don’t have an ETA on that at this time though.

                        Thanks,
                        Soubhagya Dash
