It would be great if there would be a SDK client which allows of querying data (metrics, events etc) instead of having to make REST API calls.
Even if it might be trivial to make REST calls, from a developer perspective it would be a big improvement to just be able to call a method without having to deal with auth or looking up the call you need to make.3 votes
Add adaptive sampling for Node.js SDKs

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 anymore1 vote

We'd like to use Application Insights with our native (Win32) server application written in C++, as well as our Win32 desktop application (C++).
Without C++ support we can't build a full stack solution based on Application Insights.2 votes
You used to be able to get Screen Resolution by creating a new Session chart and Grouping By "Screen Resolution". This option is no longer there! How can find this info now so it can help me make decisions (please don't let it be send custom events... i need to look at my current historic data)?4 votes
There should be a priority level that indicates the relative priority of the data.
The priority level of a tracked item should be possible to set on an item by item basis, or by more general declarative rules.
High priority data should be retained for longer time and care should be taken to make sure no high priority data is lost anywhere.
Example of use case:
You might want to mark events when a user change/request a new password longer than a metric of time taken for a storage request.6 votes
Having different retention policies for different telemetry items is a very interesting feature request. Enabling this is fundamentally non-trivial, so please keep upvoting and including the use cases where this is necessary. Please keep in mind that you can today ensure retention longer than 90d by using continuous export to archive subsets of the telemetry to external storages/data warehouses of your choice.

There is need for a good reference documentation (like normal MSDN documentation on the MSDN site), as well as "user guide" documentation and architectural documentation with whitepapers and elaborations on the different ways the framework can be used under different circumstances. For example how to use it in complex solutions with man different systems and platforms involved with different development, testing and production environment, integration with VisualStudio.com and so on.1 vote
Thanks for reaching out. It would be great to discuss this with you in more detail. Our primary documentation is at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/app-insights-overview and is an ongoing effort. I’d appreciate the chance to discuss this with you. Please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I like the idea of monitoring WCF Services with Application Insights and I'm sucessfully using the related SDK Lab already in production for a while. Please make the WCF Lab SDK offical! In addition, it would be nice to be able to log the RAW SOAP Messages as well.3 votes
Currently all traffic from your analysis is mapped to "Germany" (or Spain, ...) as region only. This create a lot of single spots but does not allow detailed analysis on the region or city even if those fields are supported in AI.1 vote
Current data submission through AI client requires a Key.
Storing a key in an application is not desirable. It will be a good idea if the AAD-authenticated applications (Service Principals) could be used instead of passing the key.
See Azure Key Vault integration with Azure Active Directory for an example of this works2 votes

App Insights drops the last octet of an IP. The only way to collect full IP is to do it manually or mess with telemetry initializers. Not a big deal, but IPs are not so sensitive and I don't think these should be obfuscated at all. At least give us an option (ideally in the portal) to collect the full IP.11 votes
Last octet is dropped by AI by design, since it represents PII (personally identifiable information). As you mentioned you can do this through the SDK or enrichment (i.e. customer can proactively collect PII, but not out of box). Can you describe a scenario where the full IP is required to triage/diagnose a production issue?
Ignore Microsoft generated internal events caused by an App Service's 'Always On' feature so the application insights feed is not cluttered
When Always ON is selected for an App service App, Microsoft send a keep alive 'Get /' to the app every 5 mins that clutters up the Application insights feed with events that are reality an internal system function and not related to 'real traffic'. (Real Get / events would want to be recorded). Could this traffic be ignored by insights rather than needing to implement filtering based upon the request source and type.2 votes

When exploring custom performance counters in Application Insights , the sample interval is by default 1 second, should there be a way to customize this in ApplicationInsights.config?2 votes
Per Sergey’s request:
Please reactivate GitHub issue and tell us what is your specific scenario why you need the collection interval to be shorter giving other characteristics of Application Insights backend. Assumptions is that you need more than just collection interval change and we need to know what.
The article at  provides guidance on using tags to annotate requests so that we can separate traffic coming from separate environments and such. However, adding tags right now requires explicitly writing an IContextInitializer.
It would be great if specifying the tags would be available as an option directly from the ApplicationInsights.config file, either by directly providing an element for including the tag data, or by providing a built-in IContextInitializer that read it from the application configuration.2 votes
