      • The time range filter enhancement

        In "Application map". The time range filter needs to have a paging for date ranges.

        Currently i need to set the 01/01/2019 9:00AM - 01/01/2019 10:00AM click Apply. then to see the next hour or previous hour, i need to reenter these datetime. Instead having a paging buttons would be a better user experience.

        • Sort sample operations by duration

          Currently sample operations are only sorted by Relevance or Date. I often want to investigate long running operations. But since I can't order them by Duration I have to manually scroll through and pick these out.

          • Decrease Web Test lantency after disabling monitoring

            After a Web Test is disabled, there is a 15-20 minutes latency before it is really disabled.
            It is causing a bunch of false-possitive alerts during automated deployments. Is there any way to reduce it?
            Thanks.

            • Enable configuration of colors in the application map

              People with a red-green colour deficiency cannot see the failure rate in Application Map. Configurable colours/ or a predefined another color set would be very helpful.

                • When pinned to Dashboard, allow custom timespan further than 30 days in the past

                  In Dashboard, normally the timespan of the tiles is defined at dashboard-level, but this can be overridden on a per-tile basis.

                  However, the "from date" does not behave correctly when it's earlier than 1 month from today, even though the UI is correct.

                  For example, if today is 26th Feb, and if I set the from date to any date before 27th Jan (e.g. 1st Jan), it will use 27th Jan to perform the query instead.

                  This makes the custom timespan useless for many use cases, such as "from the 1st of last month to the end of last month".

                      • Allow to select all alerts of a smart group (not only visible)

                        When viewing an alert smart group there's a possibility to select and edit all alerts at once. The issue is, that the "select all" option only selects the visible alerts of the current page. It doesn't select all alerts of all pages.
                        If there are lots of alerts in a smart group it's very painful to iterate through all pages and process the activities for every page.
                        It would be very useful to change the behavior of the "select all" option to really select all alerts (including alerts of other pages) or to add further select option to enable the…

                          • Pin a grid "chart" to dashboard

                            In the new dashboard Metrics explorer the only chart type that cannot be pinned is a Grid. I had to use the one in Classic Explorer to pin it to my dashboard but it doesn't integrate with the time range settings for the whole dashboard.

                            • Get the InstrumentationKey currently in ApplicationInsights.config from web.config or Portal App Settings

                              Full App Insights functionality depends on the InstrumentationKey being specified in a file called ApplicationInsights.config deployed to the root of the application. On deployment, it's difficult to transform the app insights config file with the application insights instrumentation key used by the application.

                              I suggest that Application Insights, instead of pulling the instrumentation key from the ApplicationInsights.config file, get the instrumentation key from the portal application settings, from the APPINSIGHTS_INSTRUMENTATIONKEY, for example.

                              This would avoid Release Engineers from having to manually edit the ApplicationInsights.config file on every release to an environment. If they neglect to do this, one could end…

                                    • Support for time granularity selected in Azure Portal Dashboard (via bin_auto?)

                                      When adding / pinning an Application Insights or Log Analytics chart to the dashboard, you can use the global time selector on the Dashboard to adjust both the the time range (e.g. past 1 hour, past 7 days) and the granularity (e.g. auto, 5 minutes, 1 hour, etc)

                                      However, that works only for the time range, but not for the granularity.

                                      The reason is that whenever you write a query to render a timechart, you have to hardcode the bin size in the query, e.g.:

                                      requests | summarize count() by bin(timestamp, 1m)

                                      Given the query above, I could now choose the…

                                      • gelf Graylog format support for streaming logs to Application Insights

                                        gelf is Graylog Extended Format

                                        There is an official and widely used logging driver for Docker based on gelf see https://docs.docker.com/config/containers/logging/gelf/

                                        This idea would enable sending the log output (console output) of a docker container via gelf to Application Insights (log-aggregation) n a direct fashion.

                                        There exists a custom way to achieve this which is however quite hacky, as blogged at https://lbadri.wordpress.com/2018/03/10/sending-docker-container-logs-to-azure-application-insights-using-gelf-driver/

                                          Can you Guys please make instance titles on application map to show whole name and not veryLong....ame, as having titles shown this way makes diagram completely unreadable.
