  1. DBMS name to be configured in the Application Insights Configuration

    DBMS: The connect string is configured in the portal.azure.net in the Application Insights, that gives me a unique id for me to copy and paste in scm.azurewebsites.net . There by I get that one word string to be used in @ scm.azurewebsites.net for me to connect to DBMS which is a unique connection string encrypted that is only accessible from azurewebsites.net and my development environment by using SID and Application ID data web application, It is just like InstrumentionID, Application Key ID etc.,

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, could you please help provide additional details about the scenario you are trying to achieve so we better understand the requirement and this would also help the user community to upvote & comment on. This also 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.

  2. deep link from Live Metrics Stream detail item into Analytics query or Failures

    It would be great to have deep linking on the Live Metrics Stream page. When you click on one of the items in the "Sample Telemetry" list it shows a summary detail of the selected item. This is typically not enough to start a triage session of the issue.
    It would be very helpful if you could deep link directly into an analytics query or Failures with the selected item as the starting point for the triage session.

  3. Simplify configuration of AppInsights in government cloud

    When using AppInsights in the public cloud environment, I hardly need to configure anything in my application beyond the instrumentation key. However, when my AppInsights instance is deployed in Azure Government Cloud (e.g. Fairfax / Azure US Government envirionment) I need to manually configure URLs to up to 3 endpoints, according to this page:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-government/documentation-government-services-monitoringandmanagement#application-insights

    It would be much more convenient if I could simply configure "Environment = AzureUSGovernment" instead of needing to know URLs to 3 endpoints and how to configure them in every relevant language/platform.

  6. Allow me to rename the resources shown in the Application Map

    It would be great if I could customize the Application Map resources and name them based on business context labels... not the resource type, but the resource name

  7. The time range filter enhancement

    In "Application map". The time range filter needs to have a paging for date ranges.

    Currently i need to set the 01/01/2019 9:00AM - 01/01/2019 10:00AM click Apply. then to see the next hour or previous hour, i need to reenter these datetime. Instead having a paging buttons would be a better user experience.

  8. Enable configuration of colors in the application map

    People with a red-green colour deficiency cannot see the failure rate in Application Map. Configurable colours/ or a predefined another color set would be very helpful.

  9. Get the InstrumentationKey currently in ApplicationInsights.config from web.config or Portal App Settings

    Full App Insights functionality depends on the InstrumentationKey being specified in a file called ApplicationInsights.config deployed to the root of the application. On deployment, it's difficult to transform the app insights config file with the application insights instrumentation key used by the application.

    I suggest that Application Insights, instead of pulling the instrumentation key from the ApplicationInsights.config file, get the instrumentation key from the portal application settings, from the APPINSIGHTS_INSTRUMENTATIONKEY, for example.

    This would avoid Release Engineers from having to manually edit the ApplicationInsights.config file on every release to an environment. If they neglect to do this, one could end…

  11. Bug: Setting XDT_MicrosoftApplicationInsights_Mode = recommended produces bad response for node.js app

    When adding App Insights to a existing WebApps it comes preconfigured with App Settings XDTMicrosoftApplicationInsightsMode = recommended

    This causes the following strange behavior. Consider this simple node.js app:

    ```
    const http = require('http');

    const server = http.createServer(function(req, res) {
    if (req.url.indexOf('good') >= 0) {

    res.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');
    

    } else {

    res.writeHead(200, { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' });
    

    }
    res.end('{}');
    });

    console.log(Listening at port ${process.env.PORT}...);
    server.listen(process.env.PORT);
    ```

    basically what it does is setting ContentTypeo to json and returning {}. Two different ways of doing so (the route /good sets headers and sends them with the content, any other route…

  12. When looking at failures in AppInsight, how can I see what went wrong in each case?

    When looking at failures in AppInsights, how can I see what went wrong in each case?
    Right now, all I can see is that "something" went wrong.
    It does not help me at all.

  13. Include Date Range in Application Insights URLs - Suitable for Linking in Post Mortem Documents

    When an issue impacts our services and disrupts customers, I want to be able to find related information in Application Insights, and then create links to that data in post mortem documents to direct other interested parties to precisely filtered resources related to the incident.

  14. Add a clone button to quickly create a copy for another environment like QA, Staging or PROD

    Hi,

    We created an App Insights instance in development (DEV) we would like to instantiate also for other environments like QA, Staging and Production. Currently we export the PowerShell and ARM Template but that doesn't work (ticket has been created as the export is syntactically incorrect and action groups are missing) and is also cumbersome. It would be such a great user experience to just to hit clone, enter some parameters, like a new name, resource group etc, and be done with it. It would be a huge productivity boost.

    Thanks!

  15. filter app map based on tag or environment

    App Map as well as metrics can get cluttered with dev/test and even local machine data. While you could use different app insights keys, it would also be helpful to easily tag an environment and then easily filter out an environment on app map and other visualizations
