  1. There needs to be a option where we can sort data based on each server rather than seeing a consolidated view of all servers.

    • 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.

      • Support for versioned queries in Analytics Explorer

        It would be awesome if Analytics Explorer could load queries from source control.

        Queries saved in Analytics Explorer itself (under "my queries" or "shared queries") are not versioned. Nor is there any rollback facility.

        • Allow cloning of existing azure monitor alert rules

          Most of our alert rules are variants/copies of each other: same alert target, same action group, similar search queries, evaluation logic etc.

          It would be great if we could simply clone an existing alert rule (and modify it as needed) instead of creating one from scratch each time.

          • Azure monitor alert rules should allow importing queries from analytics explorer

            It would be awesome if there was a mechanism to allow importing queries from Analytics Explorer into Azure monitor alert rules.

            Today, while creating these alert rules, we have to copy-paste queries from analytics explorer. This means one has to (potentially) maintain several versions of the same query.

            • Undock Live Metric Stream for monitoring

              Allow the Live Metric Stream Page to be viewed as a standalone to be used as a live monitoring tool as right now the headers and the azure sidebar take up valuable space

                hi, i one of c# library to log messages to app-insight i note below code. As per fix comment it says to resolve veracode reported security issues.. i believe we dont need to do this as appinsight will already take care of all injection stuff during ingestion and during display in appinsight reports portal. any expert suggestions please advise or pointers

                string contents = Layout.Render(logEvent);

                contents = contents.Replace('<', ' ')
                .Replace('>', ' ')
                .Replace("\"", string.Empty)
                .Replace("'", string.Empty)
                .Replace("\r", " ")
                .Replace("\n", " ");
                contents = HtmlEncoder.Default.Encode(contents);
                return contents
                .Replace("%0d", " ")
                .Replace("&#xA;", " ")
                .Replace("%0D", " ")
                .Replace("%0a", " ") …

                    • Stop forcing me to give feedback - I have work to do

                      I am in the middle to trying to to work - and the Azure portal decides I need to provide feedback - no way to opt out - just provide feedback - or this drop down will not go away. It sucks - I am trying to do work - I will provide feedback when I am not in the middle of something .

                      • Scheduled Reports Need to be Integrated

                        Being able to setup a function app to do this ok, but this is way to complicated for something that should built into the AI blade.

                        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/automate-custom-reports

                        Look at what you can do in Splunk. It is much easier. Let's get App Insights / Log Analytics to be better than that.

                                  • Make it possible to make a link to a specifc application insights log entry

                                    We are often in the situation where we need others to have a look at a log entry in application insights. Currently, we have to get that person over to out screen to have them look at it, but it is extremely cumbersome.

                                    It would be much better if we could have a link to the shown event and just pass the link around.

                                      • Don't allow Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget to be installed on .NET 4.0

                                        `Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget` requires `Microsoft.ApplicationInsights`, but when I add the NuGet package `Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget` on a project that targets .NET 4.0, it installs fine, but doesn't install `Microsoft.ApplicationInsights`. Trying to manually add `Microsoft.ApplicationInsights` results in an error since it requires .NET 4.5. I think `Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget` needs to block installation on .NET 4.0 unless there is something I'm totally missing.

                                        Also, if there is a better place to file bugs, please advise.

                                        • How do I remove ApplicationInsights for a specific environment from Azure Portal ?

                                          What is the way to deactivate App Insights for our production environment ? We could remove AppInsights nuget packages from our app, but that would prevent us from using it when deployed in our test / staging environment. However, we do not want to use it anymore on production environment (due to too many "surprise monthly price" bad news).

                                          How can we do that ?
