    • service endpoint

      As a financial organisation we need to be able to send information securely to Application Insights to within our own virtual network and not via a public IP. Given Application Insights could potentially contain private and/or confidential data which definitely is not desired to be sent outside of our corporations network. So in order or our team to be able to use the functionality of Application Insights it would be great if we could have the functionality send the information via a service endpoint instead of one of the current public ip addresses.

      • Draw dependencies in Application Map for independent services on same sub domain

        When two independent services with different cloud role names are hosted on the same subdomain are called from the same source than the Application Map feature in Application Insight does not draw a connection from the source to both application nodes. Instead, the source is only connected to one service node, see "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" in the attached zip file.

        The file "BadApplicationMap.cs" have code which produces some sample telemetry that illustrates the current limitation of the Application Map feature. See also "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" for the application map that is created by the telemetry from that code.…

        • Run queries with F5 key

          As a Visual Studio developer and SSMS user, I'm used to press F5 to build/run queries. However, this often refreshes the site - losing my query in Application Insights.

          F5 should run the query.

          Alternatively, you should prompt the user if they want to save their query before leaving the page.

            • How to backfill continuous export for a previous date

              During Azure outage on 09/04, continuous export stop exporting data to blob from 10 to 15. However I was still able to see data in app insights.

              I was not able find a way to backfill export between 09/04 10 am to 3pm. Is the function supported? How to do it?

              • Correlate Azure SQL Dependency calls (queries) with Query Performance Insight data

                It would be great if we could drill down on App Insights dependency duration for the Azure SQL calls / database queries.
                On the other end, in the SQL the performance is also monitored, perhaps somehow correlating the calls from insights with the query ID would be a start?

                • Availability tests to test all instances of scaled WebApps

                  When you monitor the availability of a WebApp which has been scaled and has multiple instances, the tests are not very useful.

                  There can be unresponsive instance, but the availability tests might just target the healthy ones and potential issue goes unnoticed.

                  So it would beneficial if the tests could check each instance individually and also include the instance id in the alerts.

                  • Increase Limit on Number of Availability Tests

                    We have a need to monitor each of our customers, which have a unique URL (such as customer1.example.com, customer2.example.com). We have 170 (and growing) number of customers per a single Application Insights instance. We are trying to programatically create an Availability Test for each customer and are hitting the limit of 100 Availability Tests.

                    Can this limit be increased? Is there another workaround?

                    • Export the request urls that have a response code of 404 into csv

                      In the failures it'd be handy to be able to export the request urls that are giving the 404s so when a page has been removed or multiple pages have been removed. It can easily be exported so redirects can be easily handled and there'll be a reduce in any failures seen.

                      • Add clarity on how a standalone Java Application (not a web app) can leverage Application Insights for monitoring.

                        Standalone Java applications may not be using web, but once integrated with Application Insights SDK, could use its telemetry API to report exceptions, metrics etc.
                        Are there any specific steps to be taken to make this work, apart from possibly running on Tomcat to allow Telemetry client to communicate with Application Insights service in Azure.

                            • 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.

                                      • Move Application Insights Availability Alerts to Preview Format

                                        Move Application Insights Availability Alerts to Preview Format.
                                        As of now only classic is supported and 3:rd parties like OpsGenie does not support this anymore.

                                        • Add global filters

                                          Add ability to create global filters that carry across blades. (similar to Google Analytics segments filtering)

                                          For example filter on a custom dimension and time frame and have each blade use that filter.
