    • Allow Application Insights Rest Api to return all data, even if the data = 0

      Currently Application Insights Rest Api doesn't return data that has a sum of 0, which makes generating graphs from the data incorrect and difficult.

      • IIS LogParser view in appinsight

        Recently I have started using AppInsight and I found this to be very good monitoring tool as compared to appdynamics. I'm not sure whether this feature is in place. I would like to see Metrics view in AppInsight with options to view tabular details for the http request. Similar to IIS Log parsers. This will help analyse quickly which one is failing , pass, redirected etc. Overall search filter with trace, request looks good but it require bit of training to set right parameter and query. The inclusion of IIS log like query in built or ability write custom will…

        • Application Insights Slowest Operations should respond to filters

          In Application Insights portal, when you go to the page called Performance, there is a chart that shows the server response times and a list below with the title "What re my slowest operations?"

          I can add filters to the page, but they will only filter the chart not the list below, I think this is a bug, because when you then click on a call in the list below, it opens in a details pane, but the pane shows no data because that pane is filtered with the same filters as the chart.

          So you need to remove the…

          • Deleting Application Insights Resource does not remove site extension from app service using that resource

            When removing Application Insights from an app service, you can delete the resource in the portal. But it still keeps the site extension for the Application Insights Profiler web job installed and running. You have to manually uninstall the site extension to fully remove all traces of application insights from the app service. This should happen automatically.

            • More Visibility Into Node.js

              I would like more visibility into each node exe process on AS and ASEs, i.e. a visualization that shows how requests are being routed and delegated across indivifual node.exe instances, and a way to see visualization of cpu and memory consumption history for each process. I don’t have any real way of verifying that each node.exe instance is working as expected.

              • Make it possible in the AppInsight UI to check if you reached the limit on custom properties and remove old ones

                I *believe* that I may have accidentally reached the limit on custom properties, because I'm no longer able to create new ones (see reported issue "PageViewTelemetry Custom Properties not displaying in AppInsight, but DO appear in continuous export data").
                However, I have NO WAY to verify if that's the case, nor any way to clear out the erroneously created custom properties.

                As an aside, a limit of 200 properties is FAR too low...and far too easy to reach.

                This limit, combined with the inability to KNOW that the limit has been reached and no way to clean them up, has…

                • HttpException logging misses custom properties set by context initializer

                  Hello,

                  When Web API instances receives HttpException, some internal classes of App Insights log HttpException to portal.

                  The issue is that it doesn't log customer properties which should be associated with this exception (I tried global context initializer and local TelemetryClient instance usage of "Properties" property.

                  • Multiple column layouts for charts or display multiple favorites at same time

                    I would like to have charts span multiple columns. With only being able to display 1 favorite blade at a time, I am adding a lot of charts to a single blade and now finding I can't see them all without vertical scrolling required. Either allow multiple favorites to be visible at the same time or allow blades to have multiple columns to be able to see all the charts at once.

                    • More granular time ranges

                      I would like to have more granular time range filtering in the AI user interfaces. A minimum time range of 1 hour is too much for detailed analyses. I would like to see ranges specified in increments of x minutes.

                        • Data Purger role should respect Azure role-based access control (RBAC)

                          We have an AD Group which has been granted Data Purger role through the resource group containing all of our development AI resources.

                          However, it seems like the Purge API does not respect this. Instead, we would need to set explicit permissions for each user on each of the AI resources which is not an option in the management perspective.

                          • PerformanceCollectorModule should support every possible performance counter.

                            Hi,

                            Currently list of supported performance counters is hard-coded in AppInsights.WindowsServer library.
                            This is a huge limiting factor. We need to be able to monitor every possible performance counter. This includes counters with dynamic naming like .NET Data Provider for SQL Server. It will require adding process id placeholder and maybe regex support in performance counter name.

                            https://github.com/Microsoft/ApplicationInsights-dotnet-server/blob/4093e9a6d350a9d4759eb64a2be17a90dc23f85a/Src/PerformanceCollector/Perf.Shared.NetFull/Implementation/WebAppPerformanceCollector/CounterFactory.cs

                              • Make available REST APIs to create and fetch the API Key for Application Insights.

                                Currently API Key needs to be created either from the portal or there is a powershell command available for it. However no REST API exists for same. As part of Azure REST support for Web Framework I think and strongly believe, support for such crucial services must be added to the REST.

                                Thank You.

                                  After I turn on continuous export I would like to do a one time pull of event data that occurred before continuous export was enabled. This feature would export the data in the same format provided by continuous export to make it easy to ingest into a downstream reporting system.

                                  • Enable webhook callback on Exceptions

                                    Currently work item creation is only limited to GitHub and VSTS, well we can't switch our SCM and Project Management just to use Ai.

                                    If you enable a webhook, we can write custom hook to create work items and track them on our own.

                                      • Add convenience support for aggregating metrics

                                        Can the sample code here be supported and merged into the SDK? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/app-insights-api-custom-events-metrics#aggregating-metrics

                                        I like how natural and convenient the Requests and Exceptions and etc. integration is (for ASP.NET) but metrics is less convenient at the moment.

                                        • Add outbound ports to app insights.

                                          App services have an insanely low number of available outbound ports (~160). Past that things start to slow down and time out. Yet there is little to no information on the port usage. This would be invaluable for troubleshooting connection timeouts, keep-alive strategies, etc.
