  1. Change variables and preconditions names in applicationHost.xdt file for app service extension in Azure

    The application insights azure app extension comes with an applicationHost.xdt file.
    You guys have the same names of variables and preconditions of all the examples found online.

    For example, the name of 2 variables and 1 precondition:
    HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING and HTTP_X_ORIGINAL_ACCEPT_ENCODING
    NeedsRestoringAcceptEncoding

    So when i added my own applicationHost.xdt file with the same variables names (as were the examples found online), in order to do reverse proxy with URL rewrite i had issues making it work.

  2. Add back the ability to View all Telemetry for this single operation from within End-to-End view

    End-to-End view gives ALOT of data. If I select a single operation in the long list of things a user did in their session, I want the "Related Items" pane on the left to allow me to see all telemetry items FOR THIS SINGLE OPERATION. I can see whole session and root operation. I had to disable End-To-End to restore this functionality.

  8. Include File name when File not found exception is thrown

    In Live Metrics Stream > Sample Telemetry - when there is an Exception of type System.Web.HttpException (0x80004005): File not found - it would be good if you can include the request url, so that we can quickly glance at the missing file.

  9. Application Insights in North Central US

    We have restrictions that all our disaster recovery resources should be created in "North Central US" region. As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights. Are there any plans on having app insights for North Central US region?

  10. share workbooks with "guests"

    It would be helpful to be able to share workbooks with "guests": email accounts outside of the organization with read-only access to view the workbooks (use case: share some performance charts with customers)

  15. Make data retention period configurable by data type / event content

    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…

  18. 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.

  19. Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

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

  20. 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.
