  1. automatically enable requests tracking for Mobile Services

    LIve metrics don't work for mobile services. I want the live tracking also on the mobile services so I have my heads up display that can show me real time usage of the backend

  2. Allow custom metrics to be specified as TimeSpans so they use the same chart display as PageLoad & Dependency Durations.

    Some of the built-in AI event types (PageLoad, Dependency) have Duration metrics which are treated as TimeSpans and the charting tools support appropriate scaling when displaying aggregations of those values (e.g. hours, days, etc).

    But at present all metrics in CustomEvents are simply defined as doubles without associated metadata, so there is no way to specify when one represents a TimeSpan and should be displayed as such.

  3. Allow custom event data to be configured as charts just like the default metrics.

    I am recording data in custom events e.g.; duration an operation execution. I need a chart to see on an average how much an operation takes to execute across users/sessions/geography etc. I see no way to configure a chart based on my custom event data that can give me counts/average etc.

  4. A way to tell App insights that service is server-side only

    Our app is server-side only yet we get prompted for PageLoad time graphs and Applicatoin Map client side configurations etc, Many graphs will never show data.

    If I can teach App insights that there will never be any client side info it would be great if the UI adapted and did not make it seem like I am not using all app insights features.

  5. Lower granularity when in Full Screen

    In the Azure portal allow metric explorer with a lower granularity when making the 'blade' full screen (double clicking the top bar).
    Eg. by default 24 hour view has a 1 hour granularity. By making the blade full screen it will have a 10 minute granularity.

  6. Manually define tiers in appmap

    When tracking many nodes, the appmap autolayout quickly becomes quite messy. A feature to define a tier level or tier name to nodes to add some manual grouping to assist the layout would go a long way.

    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.

  7. Pin hierarchical view of Application Map to Dashboard

    Currently we can only pin the organic view of the App Map to a dashboard. We should also have the ability to pin the hierarchical view.

  8. Auto-refresh Application Maps on Dashboards

    Currently, all metric charts on a dashboard have the ability to auto-refresh on a Dashboard, but application maps do not.

    We find the app map to be a very useful monitoring across our whole solution, but it's completely useless on a large tv screen if it doesn't auto-refresh.

  10. pin user flow to dashboard

    User flows cannot be pinned to a dashboard. Pin button is disabled. I would very much like to add that to a dashboard.

  11. performance filter should be like search filter with picker for custom dimensions

    The Performance and Failures blades filtering should be like the fancy one from the Search blade. I don't like having to manually enter the custom dimensions and values rather than just picking. More so, I'd like to be able to save the filters (globally) and use on any blade (voted for other feature request). The filters still don't carry into the "View in Analytics" (other bug).

  12. Add performance of the measurements as a result just like availability in the new view.

    In the new view I miss the average time/duration of the measurements. In the Old view it was there. Please put this option back so i don't have to switch to the old view to recieve that data.

  13. Have the ability to display metrics associated with requests/dependencies onto the Application map

    I am adding some of our own metrics to the requests and dependencies for our application. i.e. Things like num deals booked, KiB processed etc...

    It would be very cool to see these on the application map, perhaps floating nearby the associated components/links.

    This would probably need to be configurable to avoid information overflow.

  14. When pinned to Dashboard, allow custom timespan further than 30 days in the past

    In Dashboard, normally the timespan of the tiles is defined at dashboard-level, but this can be overridden on a per-tile basis.

    However, the "from date" does not behave correctly when it's earlier than 1 month from today, even though the UI is correct.

    For example, if today is 26th Feb, and if I set the from date to any date before 27th Jan (e.g. 1st Jan), it will use 27th Jan to perform the query instead.

    This makes the custom timespan useless for many use cases, such as "from the 1st of last month to the end of last month".

  16. Application map sometimes shows all nodes and other times groups them together

    It's infuriating when it groups them all together for no reason.

  17. FrontDoors causing a big drain on Application Insights

    I've enabled Front Doors on my Web App with AppInsights enabled and noticed a huge increase in data ingested - possibly due to heartbeat queries from FD service. There should exist an option to discard / sample the same traffic, or deduplicate it somehow? I can't use app insights with azure front doors due to pricing consequences it creates, and I'll probably need to drop this in favor of front doors if this cant be helped

  18. Add filters for Count & Failure Rate for the Application Map

    In application Insight there is an application map feature that highlights the status of interaction between components. It would be great to have a way to filter the data to show only failures where the count is greater than a configurable threshold and a filter where the failure rate is over a certain failure rate. The combination of these two would help in getting to the data that would be address with a highest priority.

  19. Integrate AppInsight/Analytics visualiser/editor inside external WebSite/Sharepoint

    Azure App Insight Rest API is great and you already have done some great work on Charts.
    It would be great if you shared it to integrate into external websites so we don't have to turn raw datas into pretty graphics all over again (and ugly).

    Basically, I want a webpart where I type my query and get that on my sharepoint site (cf file). Or iframe integration.

  20. In the live metrics stream, I'd like to have the ability to filter which hosts are shown.

    I got a message saying that we had too many servers reporting. I don't necessarily need to see all of the hosts there, but I would like to be able to create a sharable, saveable view of the live metrics stream for a specific subset of hosts.

    This view would be very useful for monitoring high web volume events for our clients.
