  1. When looking at failures in AppInsight, how can I see what went wrong in each case?

    When looking at failures in AppInsights, how can I see what went wrong in each case?
    Right now, all I can see is that "something" went wrong.
    It does not help me at all.

      • Add support for displaying Scheduled Query Rule-based alerts in resources.azure.com

        As a frequent deployer of resources in Azure, I'd like to see support for showing scheduled query rules in resources.azure.com so that I can ease the authoring of new rules based on existing ones.

        • Add ARM template support for Azure Monitor Scheduled Query Rule export when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade

          It would be very helpful when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade in the Azure portal if we could export the ARM template for the Scheduled Query Rule that's about to be created, similar to the way we can export the "Automation Script" when creating other resources.

          This would be useful for helping us automated our monitoring in ARM templates as part of our CI/CD process.

                    • 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.…

                            Adding the release annotation task on a Linux agent throws the following error:

                            [error]A supported task execution handler was not found. This error usually means the task does not carry an implementation that is compatible with your current operating system. Contact the task author for more details.

                            Write the release task to support Linux or OS agnostic.

                            • Application Map - Export to PNG

                              Often the components displayed on the Application Map will extend outside of the visible area. I can take a screenshot if I zoom out, but then it is not legible. Or, I can compose multiple screenshots together as I pan, but that is tedious.

                              Suggestion: allow exporting the map as an image.

                              • Integrate AppInsight/Analytics visualiser/editor inside external WebSite/Sharepoint

                                Azure App Insight Rest API is great and you already have done some great work on Charts.
                                It would be great if you shared it to integrate into external websites so we don't have to turn raw datas into pretty graphics all over again (and ugly).

                                Basically, I want a webpart where I type my query and get that on my sharepoint site (cf file). Or iframe integration.

                                    Application Insights has the ability to connect to an existing Azure DevOps project so that Bug Work Items can be created.

                                    This doesn't seem to work if the Application Insights instance is in one Azure Subscription and DevOps is linked to a different subscription/AAD

                                    • Smart Detection to provide more details into .NET processes

                                      We have a WebAPI2 project that is spawning memory & CPU warnings - SmartDetection shows the metrics and when they occurred.

                                      However, there's no actionable details - like which .NET objects are consuming memory, or what API calls are generating CPU utilization.

                                        • Track SignalR traffic

                                          Right now, SignalR and WebSockets messages are invisible to AI. Worse yet, they count as a really long HTTP request. It would be nice to have a separate diagram in the Live Metrics Stream blade and everywhere else where successful or failed request are being displayed.
