      • Add support for programmatic cohort creation (e.g. via PowerShell)

        I would like to create a release pipeline which creates and configures a new AppInsights resource. Anyhow, I cannot find any option to do the AppInsights configuration. Example: Cohort creation. I cannot find how this can be done automatically via a release pipeline.

        • Better support for containerized / Kubernetes environment (sidecar)

          Run application insights as a sidecar that can be deployed alongside app that has logs directed to it. This aligns more closely with how other logging aggregators perform in a containerized / Kubernetes environment.

          This would alleviate burden of configuring app insights for multiple microservices (one time setup), provide consistency, and would make app insights even more available to every kind of container you are running as it is much more generic.

          i don't know if the Kubernetes API gives this ability but i wonder if app insights could register itself as an interceptor and apply metadata to correlate telemetry…

          • Incorrect response on API call Microsoft.Insights/components when subscription do not contain any application insights components

            If calling the api endpoint for listing all Application insights components in a subscription and there is none, the returned json is [] (an empty array)

            GET https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/providers/Microsoft.Insights/components?api-version=2015-05-01

            This will not be deserializeable by the client since it expects an object (not an array) and will thus throw an exception.

            Using the Management c# nuget package (Microsoft.Azure.Management.ApplicationInsights v 0.2.0-preview) will show this by throwing the exception below

            • Bring back the HockeyApp Bridge as long as Visual Studio App Center does not support all Platforms

              The HockeyApp can be used from windows desktop applications which is what some people still do. While Visual Studio App Center does not support any Desktop Application type.

              Can we get back the HockyApp Bridge untill AppCenter is usable for our purpose?

              • Data Purger role should respect Azure role-based access control (RBAC)

                We have an AD Group which has been granted Data Purger role through the resource group containing all of our development AI resources.

                However, it seems like the Purge API does not respect this. Instead, we would need to set explicit permissions for each user on each of the AI resources which is not an option in the management perspective.

                • Make available REST APIs to create and fetch the API Key for Application Insights.

                  Currently API Key needs to be created either from the portal or there is a powershell command available for it. However no REST API exists for same. As part of Azure REST support for Web Framework I think and strongly believe, support for such crucial services must be added to the REST.

                  Thank You.

                    • Support exception.Data.Add()

                      The Exception class allows us to add custom data using exception.Data.Add("label", "value"). It would be useful if this data could show up in Application Insights.

                      Using telemetry.TrackException() we can report custom data in a very similar way as a Dictionary<string,string>, so hopefully it wouldn't be much work to support exception.Data.Add().

                      The advantage would be that the custom data would be supported for exceptions that are caught and rethrown, as well as those using telemetary.TrackException().

                      • Enable webhook callback on Exceptions

                        Currently work item creation is only limited to GitHub and VSTS, well we can't switch our SCM and Project Management just to use Ai.

                        If you enable a webhook, we can write custom hook to create work items and track them on our own.

                            • Implement support for the standard Azure RM metrics interface with Get-AzureRmMetric

                              We're implementing a monitoring system for our Azure infrastructure and need to be able to query metrics for resources via PowerShell. We're currently able to use Get-AzureRmMetricDefinition and Get-AzureRmMetric to query metrics for other resources on a per-resource basis, but Application Insights doesn't support this (I would think) standard Azure RM interface. Please add support for Azure RM's Metrics infrastructure to query all the metrics otherwise available in Application Insights.

                                Currently Application Insights Rest Api doesn't return data that has a sum of 0, which makes generating graphs from the data incorrect and difficult.

                                  I'm trying out the Azure Application Insights REST API GET /events query through the (https://dev.applicationinsights.io/apiexplorer/events) and I can get a full query working fine and works with most $select parameters like 'user/id' but whenever I try 'customEvent/name' it brings back a null value for the item when I know there is a value whenever I get the full query with no $select parameter. Is there another way to grab this value through the select param? I'm using the select param in order to filter down the number of columns brought back that I don't need.

                                  • How to perform queries using the Azure API format: user authentication

                                    I want to get json data as explain in rest api doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/overview

                                    customEvents | where customDimensions.teamId == '8bcb0466-8227-4de4-b001-b70381b9cd04'

                                    As the rest api have limit of 15 call per min and 1500 per day as doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/Authorization/Rate-limits says to use Azure API and Azure Active Directory but there is no example available for that.

                                    I want to do it in node js but didn't find any sdk for the same.

                                    For AD authentication I used assport-azure-ad library.
                                    node.js azure active-directory ms-application-insights

                                      • Implement push-style read API for Application Insights

                                        Implement push-style read API for Application Insights.

                                        API user could define a filter on Application Insights Events and/or Metrics, and then get data pushed into storage queue(s) / event hub(s).

                                          I am logging entire JSON objects and I would like to query the API based on attributes of these objects. For instance I am logging request headers to the database and when I query the API I want to query something like:
