  1. Omit NTLM handshake 401 responses from Application Insights Failures

    So when requesting any resource that requires windows authentication (username, password, domain) from say a webjob running within an app service, the first 2 responses are 401 setting up the ntlm handshake (nonce, etc). These should not be considered failures. They're cluttering up the reporting with false negatives, as the 3rd part, the actual authenticated request, returns non-401.

  2. Export Saved Queries

    It would be nice to be able to export somehow my Saved and Shared Kusto queries - and be able to reuse them in another Application Insights instance

  3. Move Region while retaining log history

    As more regions become available for application insights, it would be nice to move region of application insight resource while retaining the log history.

  4. Ability to move objects in application map

    The application map gives a great overview of the current set up of an application and it's health. Sometimes however the creation of this map fails a little and some elements go on top of communication lines or other elements.

    It would be great if we were able to drag the elements in application map around with our mouse to reposition them.

  6. Link to Failures with current selection and filters

    It would be incredibly useful to be able to link to the Failures tab with the filters as they are.

    Currently it is just a link to /ApplicationInsightsResourceName/failures

  7. deep link from Live Metrics Stream detail item into Analytics query or Failures

    It would be great to have deep linking on the Live Metrics Stream page. When you click on one of the items in the "Sample Telemetry" list it shows a summary detail of the selected item. This is typically not enough to start a triage session of the issue.
    It would be very helpful if you could deep link directly into an analytics query or Failures with the selected item as the starting point for the triage session.

  8. Bring back favorites for search (including pinning to dashboard)

    We used "Search" to create multiple filtered queries and pinned them to the dashboard. Since several week it is not possible to edit favorites or to create new favorites. Pinning filtered queries is no more possible.
    Please, bring back this feature

  9. Ability to set cloud role name with codeless solutions

    SychevIgor has requested the ability to set cloud role name with codeless solutions:

    This is something that we've discussed in the past here:

  10. Add ability to filter end-to-end transaction view

    Add the ability to filter in the end-to-end transaction view. The transaction may include a lot of dependencies and other requests in such a way that the view becomes hard to read. It would be nice to be able to exclude dependencies of a certain type, or only show queues for a specific message type, for example. Or maybe exclude calls with duration less than 100ms.

  11. Add BGP Community for api.applicationinsights.io

    Currently, there's no way to route Application Insights traffic over ExpressRoute without enabling routing for the entire region.

    Other services, like Exchange Online and SharePoint Online, have BGP communities set up. There are even BGP communities for SQL, Cosmos DB, and storage. However, one does not exist for Application Insights:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/expressroute/expressroute-routing

    There should be a community specifically for Application Insights, especially if we want to make it the ubiquitous tool for monitoring in the Enterprise.

  13. Application insights urls should have short option

    Application insights resources should have an option for a short url link so that it can be added to documentation, integrations, etc.

    Long urls with ids and big paths are not user friendly.

  14. Set cloud_roleName in Application Insights

    It's currently hard to distinguish logs in Application insights because requests from different services/deployments all show up with the name "/score". As far as I've seen the only way to identify the service is to use a "startswith" on the "Container Id" customDimension.

    You should therefore set the "cloud_RoleName" field for all logs (requests, exceptions, traces). It should either be set to the service/deployment name, or it should be possible to specify a custom name per deployment (e.g. for allowing us to follow company-wide naming conventions).

    Setting the "cloud_RoleName" also enables other important features in Application Insights, like the Application…

  15. 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.

  16. Multi-select on Availability Tests

    Availability tests on Application Insights do not have the multi-select option. This means that in a resource with dozens of web tests, to start/stop all of them or a group of them this has to be done one by one.

  17. Using AI in microservice environments (like AKS or SF)

    Today each AI instance allows definition of a daily cap for the whole resource. This is not sufficient for scenarios where lots of services wants to share an AI instance (could be interesting for tracing analysis and so on). A solution could be different instrumentation keys for each service with a specific daily cap to prevent from blocking the whole AI instance by a misconfigured service that flood the instance with lots of messages.
    At the moment we have to use an AI instance for each service or each application running in the environment. For overall service analysis we can…

  18. Allow users to filter application map to exclude HTTP 404 errors

    The application map often shows red if there are lots of 404s in the app. However, most of the time, these are crawlers/bots hitting random pages on the site. It would be nice to have the option to exclude these on this page. We can filter them out in the Failures chart, but not the application map.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
