  1. Return Export ID on Application Insights Continuous Export creation

    Currently, creating a Continuous Export via the API or Go SDK returns a list of all continuous export configurations on success.

    It would be better if it returned only the export configuration just created, or only the Export ID for the configuration just created, so the user knows the Export ID of the new export configuration.

    Please see https://github.com/Azure/azure-sdk-for-go/issues/4745 for more details.

  5. Provide option to unescape urls.

    When presented with a URL such as the one below as shown in the Command box of the end-to-end transactions windows, my eyes bleed. It would be a kindness if you could provide an 'unescape' check box to turn this into something a little more intelligible...

    https://xxxxxxx.table.core.windows.net:443/ConsolidatedPositionsByIdAndTime?$filter=%28PartitionKey%20eq%20%27B4%3AE6%3A2D%3ADD%3AAF%3AA3%27%29%20and%20%28%28RowKey%20ge%20%27-2518454905456040119%27%29%20and%20%28RowKey%20le%20%27-2518467001456040119%27%29%29&$top=1000

  6. Add possiblity to query from Log Analytics to fetch all alerts triggered by Application Insight alert rules

    It would be great if there is any table in Log Analytics where all triggered alerts are stored with details so I can use Log Analytics query to fetch what I want and build up custom charts and dashboard fit to business needs

  7. pin user flow to dashboard

    User flows cannot be pinned to a dashboard. Pin button is disabled. I would very much like to add that to a dashboard.

  8. Add Clarity on the Performance Testing, Is IT also deprecated along with DevOps?

    It's unclear if Application Insights performance tests are the same or will also be deprecated along with DevOps Web Tests/Load Testing.

    The performance testing shows up as "preview" which makes it look like it may be a new feature coming but not something that will be deprecated and thus a waste of time to look at.

  9. Allow Instrumentation Key Regeneration

  10. performance filter should be like search filter with picker for custom dimensions

    The Performance and Failures blades filtering should be like the fancy one from the Search blade. I don't like having to manually enter the custom dimensions and values rather than just picking. More so, I'd like to be able to save the filters (globally) and use on any blade (voted for other feature request). The filters still don't carry into the "View in Analytics" (other bug).

  11. Allow me to rename the resources shown in the Application Map

    It would be great if I could customize the Application Map resources and name them based on business context labels... not the resource type, but the resource name

  13. Mayor informacion de los errores detectados en Live Metrics Stream

    En el Live Metrics Stream se proporciona información sobre los errores detectados en tiempo real, sin embargo al hacer clic sobre ellos, la información es muy poca, sería muy interesante que se muestre mayor información acerca del error o haya un link que te lleve directamente al modulo de errores para poder saber de que trata a quien afecto.

  14. Add performance of the measurements as a result just like availability in the new view.

    In the new view I miss the average time/duration of the measurements. In the Old view it was there. Please put this option back so i don't have to switch to the old view to recieve that data.

  15. Provide link from App Insights Analytics results back to explore the items in App Insights

    The Application Insights blades are great for exploring failures/exceptions, seeing what happened in the user session to diagnose issues etc. Often though we have to write specific queries using Analytics. It would be great to be able to open any items (Exception, Custom Event, Dependency, Page View etc) back in App Insights so that the complete session can be navigated and troubleshooting conducted. The current process is that you write specific reports that return the items that you need to look into further, and then manually take the session id (or other identifying value) and go back to Application Insights…

  17. Consolidate Settings

    Consolidate the various places where one cat set the instrumentation key. I just found that my app had two different keys:

    APPINSIGHTS_INSTRUMENTATIONKEY
    ApplicationInsights:InstrumentationKey

    One set by the portal, which I think is for the debugger, snapshots, more integrated solutions and the other one is set by me or VS at install into the app. This is the one that I would typically use to embed for JS and (in some cases) manually at startup for the app.

    There's also the config file, it seems (I don;t use that). There should be one place to ensure that the correct key is…

  19. Have the ability to display metrics associated with requests/dependencies onto the Application map

    I am adding some of our own metrics to the requests and dependencies for our application. i.e. Things like num deals booked, KiB processed etc...

    It would be very cool to see these on the application map, perhaps floating nearby the associated components/links.

    This would probably need to be configurable to avoid information overflow.

  20. Usage Blades (Users, Sessions, Events, etc., etc.) usable across App Insights Resources

    Even though I can create Analytics queries across multiple AI resources, I do not have a way to view information across AI resources in a view like the blades in the Usage section. I would really, really like to be able to use these blades across AI resources, not unlike the way that the Transaction view automatically spans AI resources when looking at telemetry.

    Our system is composed of 30+ different ASP.NET applications and one SaaS non-.NET site that users interact with as if it were a single system. We have all pieces of it instrumented with App Insights, each…
