  1. Enable deploying shared queries via ARM

    We have multiple application insights instances (test, acc, prod) and want to configure them as Infrastructure as Code using ARM templates. It seems to be possible to add alerts to the templates, however I'm not able to add our share queries from our insights analytics to an ARM template. To be able to redeploy and keep track of our queries we want be able to add the developed queries in our ARM templates and deploy them as IAC.

    • Funnels - where is Export to Power BI button?

      According to docs[1] I should be able to export a funnel to power BI.
      So I wonder why this option is missing from my funnel toolbar.
      There is a Share url option but that looks way less useful than the missing one.

      • Allow data retention beyond 2 years

        While work is in progress to extend retention up to 2 years (as Log Analytics has), there is a need for data retention longer than this.

        • Shared queries destination for multiple resource groups

          There should be a way to either share queries across multiple resource groups on the same subscription, or at least batch exporting/importing in the analytics blade. It's common to deploy several instances of an application to different resource groups as different sandboxes/environments, but typically we'd be interested in displaying analytics data uniformly across all environments.

          • Show data as it is – don't parse strings into objects automatically

            App Insights Analytics should not automatically parse data when shown in the UI. Show it exactly as it's returned so we know what we need to do to interact with it. I can't tell you how many times I hav eto play with a series of parsejson and tostring calls until I finally get what I want. When working with a new dataset, it's a good 30 minutes for me to figure it out. It's complete guesswork! I *HATE* working in App Insights Analytics because of this. It makes it incredibly difficult to work with data, which is pretty important.…

            • There is a delay of time for Application Insights Log Analytics data to appear in my dashboard

              My application will push logs to Appln Insights. When I search for the same log entries it wont appear immediately. It will show up after some delay of 3-5 mins. This issue is a show stopper for me. Please let me know the resolution.

              • Separate 4xx requests from 5xx requests in Live Metrics Stream

                Allow for a filter or another graph to track 401's, 403's, and all other 4xx calls separate from 5xx calls so that we know if we are encountering auth issues or exceptions in Live Metrics Stream.

                • 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

                        • In the live metrics stream, I'd like to have the ability to filter which hosts are shown.

                          I got a message saying that we had too many servers reporting. I don't necessarily need to see all of the hosts there, but I would like to be able to create a sharable, saveable view of the live metrics stream for a specific subset of hosts.

                          This view would be very useful for monitoring high web volume events for our clients.

                              I would like to create a release pipeline which creates and configures a new AppInsights resource. Anyhow, I cannot find any option to do the AppInsights configuration. Example: Cohort creation. I cannot find how this can be done automatically via a release pipeline.

                              • Compress continuous export data using GZip

                                It would be great if data could be compressed using GZip while exporting to Blob Storage (either by default, or as an option). It should compress quite well (saving on storage and transfer costs), and if the content-encoding on the blob is then set correctly most tools (and browsers) will be able to decompress the blobs on-the-fly when downloading.

                                Also, setting the content-type to "application/x-json-stream" may help integration with other tools.

                                      • App Services attach support custom applicationInsights.config.

                                        Currently we cannot change the ApplicationInsights.config, when we have set up Application Insights extension for monitoring Web App.
                                        ApplicationInsights.config is hidden from Kudu console.
                                        Could you review the below idea?

                                        idea:
                                        App Services attach support custom ApplicationInsights.config, when we have set up Application Insights extension.
