  1. Add drill downs - live metrics

    Be good to allow 2 things :

    Click on an item in the telemetry window so we can drill as it happens

    Also be good to be able to take out a server from the stack by selecting it ..

    • The Sample Operation should include HTTPHeaders

      It would be nice to see the HTTPHeaders for a given request. or maybe i can't find it and it is already there?

        • Make data retention period configurable using analytics query

          For now data retention period is fixed to 90 days and can't be changed.
          In reality telemetry events have different values and should be stored accordingly.
          For example I'm interested in storing exception data only for a day or two, just to raise alerts. Trace records are needed to diagnose particular behavior\ reproduce a bug, so they should be kept just for the time I need to get this job done.
          On the contrary user related events, like purchases, logins, specific actions are very valuable and should be stored for years.
          These retention rules are unique to each business, so…

            Hello,

            Thanks for this suggestion. Is it sufficient if we’d allow data retention by data type? For example you could configuration traces, exceptions and depenedencies for a short period like a week, but keep custom events with your business telemetry for a longer period such as a year or more.

            Thanks
            Dale

            • Application Insights in China

              Application Insights is unfortunately not availble in Azure China. Are there any plans to support Application Insights in China?
              It would be necessary to run our production services in that region.

              • Export Workbooks as PDF

                It would be really useful to export workbooks as PDF so they can be shared with users that do not have access to the Azure Portal.

                  • Remove daily data limit for Visual Studio Enterprise subscribers

                    In a development situation, I've set up Application Insights to measure an Azure Function App. The function app is triggered every second with a small message from the IoTHub.
                    Within the hour, I've reached a daily data limit for Application Insights. As a Visual Studio Enterprise subscriber, I expect that I could use my monthly credit for selecting a pricing tier.

                    • Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

                      The portal looks great. Very slick. Not applying the dark theme to this cool view is jarring.

                      • A memo box to use

                        When you click a button a memo box pops up to help calculate
                        algorithms. The usual memo page is too white & it disappears when typing codes.

                        • Add ability to dismiss the banner tips

                          The banner tips are helpful, but I would like to dismiss them.
                          They get annoying rather quickly since you can’t remove them and they take focus away.

                          • Application Insights in Canada regions

                            We have restrictions that all our resources should be created in "Canada" region.
                            As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights.
                            Note: for example for customer implementing Sitecore solution which comes with Application Insights as first-class.

                            Original ask here:
                            https://feedback.azure.com/forums/34192--general-feedback/suggestions/18649744-application-insights-in-canada-regions
                            But just saw that there is this dedicated uservoice for Application Insights.

                            Thanks for your feedback.

                              • Bring Application Insights to Azure Stack

                                APM-tools are crucial in our organisation. An on-prem solution for this is important for organisations that aren't allowed to store data outside on-prem datacenter.

                                Would be a shame to be forced to use other on-prem software like appdynamics.
