  1. Enable/Disable link from/to a resource in the application map to make the map more readable.

    It would be useful to be able to enable/disable links to/from a resource by clicking on it or on the blade that appears when you click on it.

    • Update more frequently pinned to a Dashboard charts created in Analytics

      As a DevOps I need to observe aggregation of custom metrics showing the pulse of the system, which can be very nicely implemented via a query in App Insights\Analytics but if you pin them on a Dashboard they will update only hourly.

      We need an option for auto-refresh on such tiles/charts pinned on dashboard to be refreshed each 1-5 minutes.

              • Allow Combining of Individual Nodes in User Flow Diagrams

                Currently, if you have multiple pages that have the same root, but with different parameters, there is no way to collapse these into a singular category for analysis. There is already a grouping called other, so there is clearly the capability for doing grouped node analysis, and it would be great to see this extended to allow users to create their own groups. I would recommend allowing users to right-click on any node and offer options to combine it with any other node or existing node combination/grouping. This would solve the problem of logging pages with different queries (for example…

                • Allow Data Sources managements from the Analytics/Logs blade inAzure

                  In the old standalone AI website, we could click on settings and manage Data Sources, which would show up in "Other Data Sources".

                  Managing Data Sources, however, seems to be impossible in the Analytics Azure blade.

                  Please add a link to manage data sources in the "Logs" blade of an AI resource...

                  • Ability do embed dashboard to third party applications. E.g. CMS. Including Quick Pulse

                    Many of our clients would love to see the amazing reports we can generate in App Insights from with in their web application e.g. CMS. Although it would be possible to build these dashboards manually using the API, it would be much more feasible to just get an embed code for the metrics graphs ans list created in the Azure Portal.
                    This should also include the live streaming Quick Pulse.

                                Currently user cannot set custom time range on User Flow menu and it is difficult to get User Flow for specified interval. (e.g. to get daily report, user has to log-in Azure portal same time every day to get last 24 hours of data. )
                                Please add custom time range support on user Flow menu.

                                  • Define maintenance time period for Smart Detection

                                    We have a daily maintenance period to restart web pools (2:00am-2:05am), so during the warmup periods we are getting false positives in Smart Detection and a lot of email alerts. It would be very helpful to define a time period for pausing the Smart Detection per Application.

                                    • Improve Custom Event attributes sort order

                                      Currently all custom event data tracked is visible in the filtered search. Browsing between multiple events and comparing the custom data is difficult because the order in the dashboard or search view for custom events ALWAYS sorts the custom fields / properties in different order, not even alphabetically.
