  2. Support Authenticated User id in usage scenarios

    Support Authenticated User id in usage scenarios . For retention currently we are showing retention users value wrt userId column. It would be good if we can support userAuthenticatedId. Similarly for other usage blade like users, session, workbook, funnel etc.

    Counting by authenticated users is supported in the Users, Sessions, Events, and Cohorts tools. The Retention tool doesn’t support authenticated user counting, but the “N-period retention” workbook template does…check it out in the Workbooks tool. Counting authenticated users is on the backlog for the Funnels tool, but no ETA on when it will arrive.

  3. Export user flow graph as png/jpg/pdf

    There should be an option to export the user flow graph to an image or a PDF, so it can be shared with colleagues who don't have and need not have Azure access.

  4. Capture Region of Executing Process as part of analytics data

    In the analytics schema, we have fields cloudRoleName and cloudRoleInstance. When an application is deployed to multiple regions and each deployment is using a single instrumentation key, it would be useful to split data by the cloud geographic region that processed the telemetry,

    e.g. cloud_GeoRegion, to contain data such as 'West Europe', 'West US', 'UK West' etc.

    This would apply to any of the schemas, where cloudRoleName and cloudRoleInstance are recorded.

  5. user flow that can be configured by a custom Property (rather than session or operation)

    Currently User flow can "group" the flow of calls based on session or operation. But there are specific scenarios (Like a REST API) where continuity is not based on operations or session. But some custom property we inject in the CustomEvents (it can be either a custom SessionId that is sent by the client code or CustomUserId)

    Thanks for the feedback. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This 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.

  6. Make it possible to make a link to a specifc application insights log entry

    We are often in the situation where we need others to have a look at a log entry in application insights. Currently, we have to get that person over to out screen to have them look at it, but it is extremely cumbersome.

    It would be much better if we could have a link to the shown event and just pass the link around.

  7. Ability to list all the users in App Insights

    The Meet your user's section shows information about five sample users matched by the current query. But it should have the ability to list all the users and have the ability to search for a user on the UI itself.

  8. reverse dns domain as part of the user information

    A key information about the requests for us is a categorization of the requesting IP address. For example the IP address 19?.??1.2??.4 can be resolved to a single host name fw1.h???-??t.de. This implies that the requesting user is from the company owning the domain h???-??t.de. It would be great to have that domain name in application insights to see what other companies are browsing our web page.

  9. Daily cap

    Data volume trends” in “usage and estimate” for app insight shows data more than daily cap which we set. Could you please help us to get correct information in daily cap.

    I got information that, due to scale requirements, the daily cap cannot be strictly enforced by the Application Insights ingestion. Each ingestion front-end calculates the current daily total independently and could allow over-the-cap ingestion if the application is sending telemetry from multiple Azure regions or within high-volume regions and user will be billed only for billing/daily cap not for over-the-cap. Still, over cap daily volume trends miss-guide us. Please…

    Thank you for the feedback , will share the feedback with our team to further evaluate and see what can be done to correct it.

  10. Add support for viewing funnels by total events count. Currently its showing count per user.

    Want to view or show funnels for number of occurrence that event or flow has been happened in addition to showing just user count because same user might started the flow again but not completed it again which needs to be tracked.

  11. Application map diagram should display the full service instance name.

    It's hard to validate the components in the diagram when just a few letters are shown for each service instance. Test, pre-prod og prod instances have almost the same names.

  12. Add link from Events to Analytics pane

    On the usage | Events, after choosing 'View More Insights', and clicking on a Custom Event name in the Event Statistics.

    Add a link to the Analytics Query builder with a pre-configured query.
    customEvents
    | limit 50
    | where name == "{customEvents.name}"

  13. Fix UI to see truncated text in user flows

    If you have long page names, it is impossible to see the full name. This is a simple change request to see the full name; e.g. by a tooltip or allowing more lines of text in the UI element.

  14. User Flows link to Events page

    On UserFlows, have an option on the boxes (an Event), to go to the Events page with that specific Event selected to be able to delve more into the sessions that used it in a easier way.

  15. Browser performance view does not show per-page view performance

    The browser performance view's bottom left section (shows summary of all pages and an overall roll up) appears to have a bug in the query. Using the 'View in Analytics' -> 'Requests' option, I can see this is the query that is used for that panel:

    // this query calculates pageView duration percentiles and count by name
    let start=datetime("2019-06-02T15:37:00.000Z");
    let end=datetime("2019-06-03T15:37:00.000Z");
    let timeGrain=5m;
    let dataset=pageViews
    // additional filters can be applied here
    | where timestamp > start and timestamp < end
    | where clientType == "Browser"
    dataset
    // change 'operation
    Name' on the below line to segment by a…

  16. Usage Blades (Users, Sessions, Events, etc., etc.) usable across App Insights Resources

    Even though I can create Analytics queries across multiple AI resources, I do not have a way to view information across AI resources in a view like the blades in the Usage section. I would really, really like to be able to use these blades across AI resources, not unlike the way that the Transaction view automatically spans AI resources when looking at telemetry.

    Our system is composed of 30+ different ASP.NET applications and one SaaS non-.NET site that users interact with as if it were a single system. We have all pieces of it instrumented with App Insights, each…

  17. Seeing issues with Capturing Users, Sessions, Browser, Country and Events information charts in Application Insights

    Hi,

    I see issues in viewing telemetry data on App Insights Charts in Users, Sessions and Events sections in Usage Metrics.
    I'm using applicationinsights-js SDK in modular approach(Angular5 Typescript & Ionic Framework). I was able to capture dependencies, traces and other info, but unable to view Users/Sessions/Country Region info. Any help is greatly appreciated.
