  1. Add ability to clear telemetry in Live Metrics Stream

    Currently you cannot clear the telemetry of a Live Metrics Stream.

    A common use case is to open Live Metrics Stream and add filters to only display failed requests, dependencies, and exceptions.

    Without being able to clear the existing list of telemetry, it is very difficult to use the live stream as a dashboard on a TV or even on your PC to quickly identify problems in production.

    If the list was cleared, you would immediately know when an error occurred since the list is on longer empty. Once you've analyzed the issue, you could clear the telemetry again and…

  2. Using AI in microservice environments (like AKS or SF)

    Today each AI instance allows definition of a daily cap for the whole resource. This is not sufficient for scenarios where lots of services wants to share an AI instance (could be interesting for tracing analysis and so on). A solution could be different instrumentation keys for each service with a specific daily cap to prevent from blocking the whole AI instance by a misconfigured service that flood the instance with lots of messages.
    At the moment we have to use an AI instance for each service or each application running in the environment. For overall service analysis we can…

  3. Allow users to filter application map to exclude HTTP 404 errors

    The application map often shows red if there are lots of 404s in the app. However, most of the time, these are crawlers/bots hitting random pages on the site. It would be nice to have the option to exclude these on this page. We can filter them out in the Failures chart, but not the application map.

  4. Bring back favorites for search (including pinning to dashboard)

    We used "Search" to create multiple filtered queries and pinned them to the dashboard. Since several week it is not possible to edit favorites or to create new favorites. Pinning filtered queries is no more possible.
    Please, bring back this feature

  5. Simplify configuration of AppInsights in government cloud

    When using AppInsights in the public cloud environment, I hardly need to configure anything in my application beyond the instrumentation key. However, when my AppInsights instance is deployed in Azure Government Cloud (e.g. Fairfax / Azure US Government envirionment) I need to manually configure URLs to up to 3 endpoints, according to this page:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-government/documentation-government-services-monitoringandmanagement#application-insights

    It would be much more convenient if I could simply configure "Environment = AzureUSGovernment" instead of needing to know URLs to 3 endpoints and how to configure them in every relevant language/platform.

  6. Pre-filtered application map

    Allow creation of pre-filtered views for application map. I have many nodes writing to the same application insights from different environments.
    It will be helpful if i could create a pre-filtered views of the application map using specific cloud role names

  7. Azure Dashboard charts are limited to 30 Days

    We want to prepare dashboard which query application insight data for more than 30 days and currently that is not possible. Dashboard custom date selection should fetch application insight data which is beyond 30 days.
    Also, it gets override if you keep the timestamp in query itself.

  8. Link to Failures with current selection and filters

    It would be incredibly useful to be able to link to the Failures tab with the filters as they are.

    Currently it is just a link to /ApplicationInsightsResourceName/failures

  10. Application Availability Dashboard

    Ability to create an Application Availability Dashboard which can be split by custom fields such as Business Portfolio, Business Application, Application Component and provide an organisation wide view of the health of all applications hosted in the cloud

    - Availability % Last 1 hour, Last 24 Hours, Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days by Application service within portfolio
    - State of Nation - Snapshot of current Availability across estate by application within portfolio

    The applications may not all be hosted in Azure

  11. User Flows link to Events page

    On UserFlows, have an option on the boxes (an Event), to go to the Events page with that specific Event selected to be able to delve more into the sessions that used it in a easier way.

  14. Pin hierarchical view of Application Map to Dashboard

    Currently we can only pin the organic view of the App Map to a dashboard. We should also have the ability to pin the hierarchical view.

  15. Auto-refresh Application Maps on Dashboards

    Currently, all metric charts on a dashboard have the ability to auto-refresh on a Dashboard, but application maps do not.

    We find the app map to be a very useful monitoring across our whole solution, but it's completely useless on a large tv screen if it doesn't auto-refresh.

  16. Scale Breaks on Y Axis (Or a second Y Axis to display low/high extremes)

    A chart with a large volume of data in a specific category can overshadow the lower values in other categories that are still meaningful to vizualise on the chart.

    Having the ability to Scale Break (as in PowerBI), or render the lower values on a secondary Y axis would be extremely useful.

  17. Show partial Instrumentation Key in Dashboard to identify App Insight instances by instrumentation key

    When dealing with different App Insight instances specified within config files using an Instrumentation Key, it can be difficult to locate the specific App Insight Instance in the Azure Portal, armed only with the instrumentation key.

    Given an instrumentation key, I would like to quickly navigate to the relevant Application Insights instance in the Azure Portal, perhaps by being able to see a couple of the characters from the instrumentation key next to the list of the App Insights instances.

  18. Allow multiple work items profiles to create bugs in multiple DevOps projects

    Currently we one can only map "Work Items" to one Project/Area in DevOps. We could set up multiple Work Items profiles to select when creating the bug from Insights

  19. deep link from Live Metrics Stream detail item into Analytics query or Failures

    It would be great to have deep linking on the Live Metrics Stream page. When you click on one of the items in the "Sample Telemetry" list it shows a summary detail of the selected item. This is typically not enough to start a triage session of the issue.
    It would be very helpful if you could deep link directly into an analytics query or Failures with the selected item as the starting point for the triage session.

  20. application insight rest api - allow filter on ingressTimestamp

    Currently the rest api does not allow to do the filter using "le", "ge" etc. IngressTimestamp which is part of CustomDimension item. I guess this is because it is treating ingressTimestamp as string field. It allows for eq operator but does not allow le gt etc. This is useful for pulling the incremental data from the application insight. we cannot rely on the timestamp field because some records are back filled. if we rely on timestamp to do the incremental extract then we miss some records
