  1. Application Insights in North Central US

    We have restrictions that all our disaster recovery resources should be created in "North Central US" region. As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights. Are there any plans on having app insights for North Central US region?

    • Add ability to log Bug WI from App Insights End-to-End transaction details

      We have the ability to log bug work items from some places in the portal (like from a smart alert) but would like the ability to log it from other places as well. Ideally from End-to-End transaction details screen as it is usually where you have all of the details about a failure.

      • Automate creation of shared queries

        Support creation of shared queries through ARM template. This will enable devOps teams to script the shared queries and propagate them among environments.

        • Allow user-specified http error codes to be excluded from Application Insights

          Allow an Azure user to exclude specified http error codes, such as 404, for a specified request from Application Insights. Our site is getting hit with multiple wp-login.php requests all day. We do not use PHP or WordPress, and the Application Insights reporting is resulting in false 404 alerts on a daily basis.

          • Smart Alert For Overall Request Volume

            Hello,

            Our team would like to setup a smart alert for overall volume of requests, which does not exist. We would like to be notified of spikes in volume of requests vs. data from previous time-frames.

                • Tracking requests made by Apache Camel

                  I would be nice to include tracking requests and dependencies made by Apache Camel. Right now, we cave custom configuration to track dependencies but it would be nice to have it in the SDK itself.

                  • Improve user geolocation accuracy

                    I know that IP geolocation is almost impossible to get right, but the library/service currently used is very bad for accuracy in the UK. It always makes the common mistake of showing my as based in Manchester, whereas I am actually based in London.
                    I don't know what different techniques eurekapi.com are using (I'm not associated with them in any way, except as a customer) but their service puts me not just correctly in London, but right down to the right area, Hammersmith and Fulham.
                    It would be great if AI were more accurate for the UK. I can't speak…

                    • Data Factory in Visual Studio

                      I am new at Azure with VS (I am still using VS2015). I cannot seem to execute my data factory locally. In order to test I still have to publish to the cloud? If I am correct that this is a missing feature then it would be very useful to be able to run locally. Thanks.

                      • integration send alert to third party (azure service bus, event hub, IFTTT, Slack)

                        Allow app insight integration with third party (azure service bus, event hub, IFTTT, Slack). Allow sending metrics or alerts on a schedule or on trigger to third party. For example, send alerts to Slack.

                        • Allow choice of process to view in Visual Studio

                          When you debug against multiple processes, ApplicationInsights picks a random one to show in the window and shows a yellow dialog "Multiple processes have been debugged. This window only shows data for XXXX"

                          Allow the user to select which process the chart displays for. don't need history just the ability to change the chart from the selection point onwards

                          • share workbooks with "guests"

                            It would be helpful to be able to share workbooks with "guests": email accounts outside of the organization with read-only access to view the workbooks (use case: share some performance charts with customers)

                            • Shorten package path names

                              To use the ApplicationsInsights.Web package in its current form, the solution must support the following path:

                              \packages\Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.WindowsServer.TelemetryChannel.2.4.0\lib\net45\Microsoft.AI.ServerTelemetryChannel.dll

                              This takes up 126 characters of the 260 allowed. This path is too long for our environment and Nuget fails. Is it possible to shorten package names?

                                • Allow us to configure alert email address(es) per AI instance and not just per alert type

                                  Currently when you set up a new AI instance you have to set up the custom email addresses for every alert type. This is time consuming and unnecessary. There should be a way to just configure it for the entire instance all at once.

                                  • Track SignalR traffic

                                    Right now, SignalR and WebSockets messages are invisible to AI. Worse yet, they count as a really long HTTP request. It would be nice to have a separate diagram in the Live Metrics Stream blade and everywhere else where successful or failed request are being displayed.

                                    • Setting threshold for Available MBytes

                                      We can gather Available MBytes (\Memory\Available MBytes) of Cloud Service as App Insights telemetry with setting Diagnotics configuration as pic1.png.
                                      However, I don't know how can we determine the supplementary unit for that when we want to set an alert rule. The unit of it appears just "count" as pic2.png.
                                      Also, as far as I checked, it is not "MBytes" but "Bytes" contrary to the name of the counter.
                                      It would be nice if all unit of counters are displayed clearly.

                                      • Cannot share reports or dashboards from "Personal" account to "Work or School" account

                                        I have a web app with JavaScript that records events in App Insights, in the Azure subscription that is part of my Visual Studio subscription, which is under a "Personal" account (even though it is through my company). If I share an App Insights with a user in my company and the user has a "Work or School Account" (same domain as my Personal account), they cannot view the report. Enabling the debugger in IE11 shows that they are getting "Access Denied" errors (though they see nothing but a blank frame). I should be able to share with any type…

                                        • "Total of Server Requests by Request Performance" should be ordered by Request Performance

                                          The second default graph on the Overview page for my ASP.NET web application is "Total of Server Requests by Request Performance".

                                          The data in the chart is currently sorted by request performance. To understand this chart currently, I have to read down the "Request performance" column and think about the duration that each of those rows represents, and whether that's acceptable or not. I can't tell anything "at a glance".

                                          If the chart was instead sorted by the request, I could glance at the "shape" of the chart, and see that most requests are acceptable (<250ms) but some are in…
