  1. Pin a grid "chart" to dashboard

    In the new dashboard Metrics explorer the only chart type that cannot be pinned is a Grid. I had to use the one in Classic Explorer to pin it to my dashboard but it doesn't integrate with the time range settings for the whole dashboard.

  2. 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.

  3. Separate 4xx requests from 5xx requests in Live Metrics Stream

    Allow for a filter or another graph to track 401's, 403's, and all other 4xx calls separate from 5xx calls so that we know if we are encountering auth issues or exceptions in Live Metrics Stream.

  5. Scheduled Reports Need to be Integrated

    Being able to setup a function app to do this ok, but this is way to complicated for something that should built into the AI blade.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/automate-custom-reports

    Look at what you can do in Splunk. It is much easier. Let's get App Insights / Log Analytics to be better than that.

  7. Support charts with more decimals (+Y-Axis auto scaling)

    I really like the Azure ApplicationInsight charts, but I would like to see charts with autoscaling (y-axis) for my floating point custom metrics.

    For instance I have lots of floating point values like 10.2345678 with a change of ~0.00001 and the charts only shows 10.23, 10.23, 10.23 and so on...

    I would love to see more detail here!

    Thanks.

  8. Would it be possible to view custom events on the live metrics stream?

    No idea how you would do this but it would be pretty amazing if you could view custom metrics on the application insights live metrics stream!

  9. Drag the components

    The components should be movable when viewing the Application map in Azure portal.

  10. "Total of Server Requests by Request Performance" should be ordered by Request Performance

    The second default graph on the Overview page for my ASP.NET web application is "Total of Server Requests by Request Performance".

    The data in the chart is currently sorted by request performance. To understand this chart currently, I have to read down the "Request performance" column and think about the duration that each of those rows represents, and whether that's acceptable or not. I can't tell anything "at a glance".

    If the chart was instead sorted by the request, I could glance at the "shape" of the chart, and see that most requests are acceptable (<250ms) but some are in…

  11. Select multiple server to monitor the health of the servers

    Currently we can only select one server which filters everything to that server., but I would also like to select multiple servers or all instances of a particular instance

  13. display of pinned query limit 7 days

    it appears that when pinning a query to a dashboard, the graph display is limited to only 7 days regardless of the underlying query.

    is this possibly a bug in the display, held over from when there was only 7days of stored data? now that we have a 30 day timeframe for data, it would be good to see that in pinned graphs.

  14. automatically enable requests tracking for Mobile Services

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Combine Operations, Dependency and Exceptions failures

    Combine all the failure categories into one. Right now, I need to click each group to see all my failures (operations, dependency, exceptions).

    I originally had "operation failures" on a dashboard not realizing they were separate. Come to find out, I had a large number of exceptions.

    There should be one single true: FAILURES and then break it down.

    Thanks for your feedback and its 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.

  20. Add a view to show the route of API call, from Origin to Completion

    It would be very advantageous to be able to have a map of all API calls that were made from a certain source till completion, to help document and map out which services call each other and which round trips the make.
