      • Enable segmentation of a web application in AI

        It should be possible to segment a website into different areas. Only data within an area should be used for smart detection and other features.

        For example
        In a website there might be two areas, the normal User website that's available to normal users, and another area, the Admin site which is used by administrators.
        It is not useful to be told that a page doing some maintenance task in the admin portal is doing much worse than all other pages...it is supposed to run for a long time!

        • Make upgrades of the Nuget packages for AI in Visual Studio non destructive to the current configuration

          Today, when you upgrade AI in VS, the new packages completely over writes whatever config you currently have.

          Make the upgrade smother and provide a GUI for configuring AI in Visual Studio

              Exclude the first few requests/events for each url/page/resource after a restart when evaluating Smart Detection.

              The initial requests to a url/page/resource typically take much longer time than what is normal.
              So the timing and measurements of the initial requests to a page/url only misleads the Smart Detection evaluation and produces a lot of random and useless results.

              Suggestion
              1. Figure out when a resource is restarted (probably the same time that AI is initialized).
              2. Keep an internal dictionary for requests, dependencies and other stuff. Reset when restarted.
              3. Every time a request/dependency/resource is processed by AP, add it to…

              • AdaptiveSamplingTelemetryProcessor node being added twice to default ApplicationInsights.config

                Whenever I add ApplicationInsights via the nuget packages, the ApplicationInsights.config file contains the AdaptiveSamplingTelemetryProcessor node two times:

                  • Add SnapshotDebugger Support to Azure AppService WebJobs

                    Application Insights Snapshot Debugging (with Snappoints, Logpoints, etc.) does not support Azure AppService WebJobs. This is documented at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/app-insights-snapshot-debugger.

                    The idea (a challenge) is to add Live Snapshot Debugging support to WebJobs. My guess is Live Snapshot Debugging works with HTTP pipelines via some IIS Snap-In (or the design equivalent).

                    For WebJobs, I suggest looking at the WebJobsSDK and perhaps leveraging some sort of Dependency Injection in combination with Triggers (ServiceBus Triggers, EventHub Triggers, etc.) such that an "in debug" inbound message can be forked into a the Debuged-Process.

                    • 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.

                      • SKIP the mandatory creditcard info at sign-up, there are more developers without a Creditcard than with one. Creditcards are only

                        SKIP the mandatory creditcard info at sign-up, there are more developers without a Creditcard than with one.

                        See what the creditcard brought the USA economy (2008) and do not wonder why people (mostly not Americans) are very reluctant to take a creditcard.

                        So by means of this policy you exclude people that don not want to live off credit.

                        That is a discriminating policy and should be changed immediately.

                        • Character encodings supported by Application Insights

                          It would be nice if it is clarified which character encoding is supported by Application Insights and SDKs.
                          We may want to send telemetry with application logs via LogBack and AI Appender but the log may have multi-bytes local language characters.

                          • Ability to set users Browser Location to App Insights from the javascript.

                            We have a business scenario, where our internet server is located in different country region (HongKong) and my application users are accessing the app from India. However, in page view report the users location is still show as HongKong. I think this is something we should have ability to overcome. It is very much likable scenario for other Companies as well and could add more value to the Application Insights as well.

                            I had communication with one of the exec from Microsoft and found that there is a method by which we set authenticated user (setAuthenticatedUserContext). Can we have a…

                                    • Enable Snapshot Debugger for Windows Desktop Apps (WPF/UWP/FORMS)

                                      Customers want a single location to do logging, analytics and telemetry. We need better support for Windows Desktop Apps in Application Insights. This includes adding the Snapshot Debugger.

                                      • Add Release Annotations to the Performance/Failures views

                                        Would be great if you could see Release Annotations from Dependencies as well.

                                        • Download schema definition from the UI

                                          Today, we can upload a schema definition in step 3 "Schema definition" of the "Edit data source" screen in Application Insights. Sometimes it would be useful to be able to download the current schema, so we can share it with other people, or perhaps run a find-and-replace operation in it.

                                          Please add a "download current schema" button, either in "Edit data source" or "Data Sources" page.
