  1. Please capture the full query text when recording SQL Commands

    Currently it appears as though SQL commands captured by AI are truncated if they're greater than 750 characters (I believe). For those of us that use Entity Framework, that's often not large enough to capture the entire command. This makes diagnosing query problems very difficult.

    Please capture either all of the command text, or at least something larger like 1500 or 3000 characters. Yes, this is a very large query - but it can be difficult to tame the beast that is Entity Framework.

    • 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.

      • Bring back the Custom Exception Properties Filter

        We were able to filter custom exception properties earlier. This was useful in being able to get rid of the noise when many custom properties are being saved for an exception

        • 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.

            • Support better deep linking to blades

              Right now one can copy the URL in paste it somewhere for others to click on to go immediately to a blade item in Application Insights, such as an exception. However, the link is very long and sometimes when users go straight to the URL it doesn't load correctly the first time. It would be nice if there was a "share" link or something similar where we could get a shorter url and if going straight to the urls loaded correctly the first time.

              • Remove custom events

                Please let us remove some events.

                The event javascript is a bit confusiong, so for example, i added a trackEvent("timezone", "Europe/Lisbon") , and what happened is that, the event timezone value for that event is split into an array of values like E, U,R,O,P,E,/,L,I,S,B,O,N , creating in the filter the prop E, U, r, and so on... Only after a bit of searching i realized i had to something more like trackEvent("account stats", {timezone:timezone}) and so on.. but now my filters are a bit polluted with wrong event data and need to remove that.

                Also for the metrics explore, i…

                • Support exception.Data.Add()

                  The Exception class allows us to add custom data using exception.Data.Add("label", "value"). It would be useful if this data could show up in Application Insights.

                  Using telemetry.TrackException() we can report custom data in a very similar way as a Dictionary<string,string>, so hopefully it wouldn't be much work to support exception.Data.Add().

                  The advantage would be that the custom data would be supported for exceptions that are caught and rethrown, as well as those using telemetary.TrackException().

                    • 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.

                      • The preview-map needs more functionality like filtering on role or operation, as well as grouping/hiding of dependencies

                        In large scale deployments with multiple operations, roles and dependencies the current preview-map is rendered useless as long as filtering, grouping and so forth is not enabled. It should for example be possible to select a specific role to view all its sub operations and/or dependencies.

                          The new map experience since has been updated with better grouping of dependencies and the ability to click on any component and see the details of the dependencies/and operations in the performance and failure triage experiences, as well as overall KPI in the right side pane (for groups).

                          How is this working (or not) for you. We greatly appreciate your feedback and help with improving our product.

                                We use group email address in our product in order to get email from azure monitoring alerts to specific teams/goals.
                                We found out that if a single person unsubscribe from the email alert sent from app insight the entire group will not be able to receive an alert email.

                                1) Enable single user from group email to subscribe/unsubscribe from a specific alert without affecting the entire emails in the group list

                                • Add support for SQL in analytics queries

                                  I have been trying to use the azure analytics custom query language (does it even have a name?) for months and have found it annoying to learn, limiting to apply, and inconsistent with other well developed data query languages such as TSQL.

                                  Why don't you just allow SQL to query the results database? Since back-end developers often know SQL anyway, it would be a much smaller step to dive into the analytics portal, and could open many possibilities for more powerful and flexible queries.

                                  • Add a 'description' attribute to the AI instance definition and dashboard

                                    We have a growing number of AI instances in our account, and since the Name cannot be changed (without a corresponding change in the application(s) that report to it), it is often very difficult to figure out which AI instance is the "right" one for a given project. Adding a "description" text field which could be edited at any time would greatly assist in management.

                                      Block F5 from updating the navigator. And instead, execute the query.

                                      • Make "End-to-end transaction details" optional, don't show by default

                                        The new feature "End-to-end transaction details" is maybe great but it usually takes longer to load then just show the details. Sometimes I am browsing through the Requests in the list and I don't have to see this End-to-end transaction but just the message or the request body (logged manually).
                                        Please make this showing optional within the details of the request, exception.

                                        • Show Message within list of events

                                          Would be ideal to see a little more in the list of events then just the event name. I use Events to categorize things but I always have more data added, like "Message", "args" or "Error". It would be great if this is shown in the list of the Matric Explorer => Search list.
                                          Explained here with pictures: https://github.com/Microsoft/ApplicationInsights-Home/issues/216
