  1. SDK for WCF - make it official!

    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.

  2. Support more detailed region tracking (and not only by country)

    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.

  3. AAD Authenticated Application Insights SDK for data submission

    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 works

  5. Add support for viewing raw body requests

    It would be great to see raw body request on analytics. Good for monitoring restful api calls (for example json payloads)

  7. 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.

  8. Track CDN metrics in Application Insights

    I want to collect my telemetry data for my cdn and be able to tell
    - my overall cdn metrics for my app integrated in my solution
    - if I have a gain when enabling cdn
    - where I should leverage cdn

  10. JavaScript SDK: Page View analysis is not working at iPhone

    I embedded javascript code as the following documents, not working iPhone only.

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/app-insights-web-track-usage/

    I confirm, don't get in Page View in most of the iPhone.

  11. Support for changing custom performance counter sample interval in Application Insights

    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?

    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.

  12. Allow specifying Tags in ApplicationInsight.config

    The article at [1] 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.

  13. Enable collecting POST parameters by configuration

    When an exception happens and the details are captured on Application insight, it would be great if POST parameters were available as well.
    This feature can be turned off for certain pages via configuration r even posting an extra parameter like Ignore Post Parameters.
    This will make sure sensitive application data like login information is not captured.
    This feature can only work when a http POST ends up with a 500 error to assist debugging application, to make sure huge data is not captured and never used.

  14. server response time needs to ignore signalr

    The average response time metric is not very useful if it is counting signalr persistent connections. I can't filter out these requests in the default dashboard graphs and it's a pain to filter it out in every single graph I create. There needs to be a way to ignore certain patterns from being tracked.

  15. HttpException logging misses custom properties set by context initializer

    Hello,

    When Web API instances receives HttpException, some internal classes of App Insights log HttpException to portal.

    The issue is that it doesn't log customer properties which should be associated with this exception (I tried global context initializer and local TelemetryClient instance usage of "Properties" property.

  16. It would be great having Application Insight API so that for mobile phones it can be synced with offline data

    As far as we know that application insight service needs internet to post data to azure. For mobile platforms, we should have API accessible so that offline data can be synced using SQLlite and AI.
