  2. 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…

  3. Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

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

  4. 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

  5. Failover for Application Insight as part of Disaster Recovery Plan

    We do not see fail-over mechanism for Application insight which should work for Disaster Recovery Plan. Seems DR still not supported by Application insight, below link for reference -

  6. service endpoint

    As a financial organisation we need to be able to send information securely to Application Insights to within our own virtual network and not via a public IP. Given Application Insights could potentially contain private and/or confidential data which definitely is not desired to be sent outside of our corporations network. So in order or our team to be able to use the functionality of Application Insights it would be great if we could have the functionality send the information via a service endpoint instead of one of the current public ip addresses.

  7. 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?

  8. Draw dependencies in Application Map for independent services on same sub domain

    When two independent services with different cloud role names are hosted on the same subdomain are called from the same source than the Application Map feature in Application Insight does not draw a connection from the source to both application nodes. Instead, the source is only connected to one service node, see "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" in the attached zip file.

    The file "BadApplicationMap.cs" have code which produces some sample telemetry that illustrates the current limitation of the Application Map feature. See also "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" for the application map that is created by the telemetry from that code.…

  10. 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.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which 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.

  11. Add search for app in application map

    With dozens of roles displaying in the multi-role application map, it is hard to find a specific one. Please add a small search / dropdown window to select an app and upon selection, center the map on this app.

  12. Add support for other named dependency types

    At the moment only SQL or HTTP is supported.

    I am using dependency tracking to time dependencies for specific function calls, or third party components. It would be good to identify these with meaningful names and have icons to support them in views on the portal.

  13. Application insights urls should have short option

    Application insights resources should have an option for a short url link so that it can be added to documentation, integrations, etc.

    Long urls with ids and big paths are not user friendly.

  14. Application Insightsにおける可用性テストについて

    現在、可用性テストに設定できるアラートは「異常時」「復旧時」を
    トリガーとしていますがそれぞれ別にアラートの編集が出来るべきと考えております。

    例えば、異常時をトリガーに自動再起動のRunbookを実行させるという仕組みを入れたとすると
    復旧時にも自動再起動が実行されることになり、無駄な再起動、無駄な通知が発生することになります。

    異常時には異常時のアラート編集を復旧時には復旧時のアラート編集を、それぞれ設定可能にして頂くと助かります。

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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!

  20. Allow the App Map Layout default to be specified

    Would like a preference for the layout format of the app map. Prefer the hierarchical layout ... it always defaults to the other layout
