  1. Scale Breaks on Y Axis (Or a second Y Axis to display low/high extremes)

    A chart with a large volume of data in a specific category can overshadow the lower values in other categories that are still meaningful to vizualise on the chart.

    Having the ability to Scale Break (as in PowerBI), or render the lower values on a secondary Y axis would be extremely useful.

  2. Allow multiple work items profiles to create bugs in multiple DevOps projects

    Currently we one can only map "Work Items" to one Project/Area in DevOps. We could set up multiple Work Items profiles to select when creating the bug from Insights

  5. Disable & Enable Application Insights as Needed

    Need an option to Disable a specific instance of Application Insights and Azure Monitor during a planned Maintenance Window and then the ability to re-enable it when needed. Could not find such an option on the Azure Portal. Currently it is only possible to stop telemetry by changing the web.config file of the app but nothing on the server side on the Application Insights instance.

  6. Pause the gathering of data

    To be able to simply pause the collection of data via the portal without the need for removing the SDK's etc. I'm assuming that this would update the sample config to 0 for everything.

  7. Link for upgrading SDK does not match programming language

    The text says 'Your application is instrumented with Application Insights SDK version java:2.4.0. Upgrade to the latest stable SDK to get a live feed of events with details like request url, response code, SQL query, and exception stack.' so it does know that we use java, however the link is to https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Web/2.2.0 whereas it should point to Maven central.

  9. Fix UI to see truncated text in user flows

    If you have long page names, it is impossible to see the full name. This is a simple change request to see the full name; e.g. by a tooltip or allowing more lines of text in the UI element.

  10. Create an option to embed Application Map in PowerBi dashboard

    It would be nice if it's possible to embed the Application Map in PoweeBi dashboard, and even better if the application map can be consumed through an API call.

  11. API to get the top most searched terms

    We have a requirement to show popular search terms in the front end.
    It would be helpfull if we can get the top most common search terms record from rest apis or a way query them form application insights

  12. Make Log Analytics query to show the same result set as a standard search in Application Insights

    In Application Insights, when searching and showing a result set, select one result to show details, and (new thing) offer a button to show the same result in Log Analytics. Particular for exceptions, a lot of stuff is hidden in the condensed view, whereas Log Analytics shows all details, inner exceptions and more. Currently, it is very difficult to find the logged message in Application Insights in Log Analytics.

  13. Function To Generate Timeoffset based upon location

    The problem with timezone conversion is that one has to account for the variable nature of Daylight Savings time, etc.
    However, generating an offset is difficult (to display in local NY time, for example, one who have to know whether or not it is Daylight or Standard time at the time of the query.

    The idea here, is to provide an offset, based upon major city (I.e., such as when setting up a PC) or a regional identifier.

    Hence one could write

    timestamp + regionalOffset( "Los Angeles" )

    There may be the necessity of also querying a "region" list

  14. Remove the API limit of 500,000 rows / 64 MB of data, or have the API return an error message or an empty dataset

    The current way the API handles the 500,000 row / 64 MB data limit is a problem when querying data from Application Insights into Power BI. As of the moment, no indication is given in Power BI if the API limit is exceeded and partial data is returned. That leaves every Power BI dashboard based on Application Insights unreliable and potentially misleading. If raising the API limit is not an option, then please have Application Insights return an error message or an empty dataset, so it becomes evident for the dashboard manager that the API limit has been exceeded, allowing…

  15. Ability to hide app/component in Application Map

    All our services call an external logging service, this makes a lot of not-so-usefull links and makes the graph hard to consult, ability to hide this component and the links to it would clean up the graph

  16. Manually define tiers in appmap

    When tracking many nodes, the appmap autolayout quickly becomes quite messy. A feature to define a tier level or tier name to nodes to add some manual grouping to assist the layout would go a long way.

  19. User Flows link to Events page

    On UserFlows, have an option on the boxes (an Event), to go to the Events page with that specific Event selected to be able to delve more into the sessions that used it in a easier way.
