      • Allow auditing of Application Insights activity

        Support the ability to audit and view who is using various features in AI, ad hoc queries that are run, what information was viewed, etc. Perhaps feed this information into Azure Activity Logs or similar. This information can then be used for certain auditing scenarios as well as usage and behavior information.

        • Error message of delete failure should be more specific.

          Even just the App Insights resource is locked to prevent to be deleted, we can't determine it since the error message is as below.

          "Could not deleted
          Could not delete application"

          The message should be more specific like as other resources such as Web Apps.

          • Expose a "Application Insights Component Reader" Role Definition

            In the same way you expose the "Application Insights Component Contributor" role, expose a new role that give access to Overview and all other parts of AI (including Analytics) in a read-only fashion

            • Ability to look up App Insights instance by IKey in Azure portal

              I have an IKey and am trying to figure out which AI instance it corresponds to. Clicking through every AI instance isn't very fun. Lookup would be much nicer. =)

              • Allow Application Insights App Services extension survive clean redeployment

                If you enable App Services extension for your service from the portal and then redeploy your service from Visual Studio selecting the clean option that deletes existing files, you Application Insights monitoring will be disabled. To re-enable monitoring you will need to remove and re-enable extension again.
                Please improve this by detecting redeployment and re-enabling extension automatically.

                • Add ability to recycle, stop, and start an IIS application pool

                  It would be great if Application Insight could provide control over the current AppPool. And even better, if it could provide ability to reboot the server.

                  • Allow enabling Application Insights on Virtual Applications, entirely through the Portal

                    If App insights are turned on the portal for a given App Service containing Virtual applications, then the App Insights currently don't work ( Live stream shows the app is offline). MS has reported that this is not supported at the present time. But it would be a big help since it is a barrier to porting legacy applications.

                        Thank you for posting this suggestion.

                        While work has not started on this suggestion yet, configuring Smart Detection rules via ARM and integrating with Action Groups are in our plans, and something we’d very much like to add after the current set of priorities are implemented. We’ll keep posting updates here as anything changes.

                        As for supporting “to define separate rules sets based on resource groups”, could you please clarify on this suggestion? Are you looking to configure Smart Detection rules at the resource group level rather than on the individual Application Insights resource?

                        Thanks,
                        Harel Broitman

                          • Enable ARM support for API Access Keys

                            I would like to deploy an entire solution based on App Insights which data is presented via a Web App:
                            https://github.com/CatalystCode/bot-fmk-dashboard

                            The web app I'm deploying will use the api of app insights to display insights and aggregated data in the form of graphs and metrics.

                            For this to work, the web app needs to have access the app insights api and that can only be done via access keys.

                            I want to enable customers to deploy the application with "one click arm deployment".

                            Currently, after deployment, users have to create a key, copy app id and api key, open…

                                    This is still on the team’s backlog, but there are other higher priority items such as cross-resource queries and enabling Log Analytics to run on the same Analytics backend and query-language that have needed resources first.

                                    Thank you for your patience! We do understand how important this is for our customers!
