  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. When setting a HealthCheck allow the immediate testing of the endpoint in the portal

  6. Pin hierarchical view of Application Map to Dashboard

    Currently we can only pin the organic view of the App Map to a dashboard. We should also have the ability to pin the hierarchical view.

  7. Auto-refresh Application Maps on Dashboards

    Currently, all metric charts on a dashboard have the ability to auto-refresh on a Dashboard, but application maps do not.

    We find the app map to be a very useful monitoring across our whole solution, but it's completely useless on a large tv screen if it doesn't auto-refresh.

  9. Show partial Instrumentation Key in Dashboard to identify App Insight instances by instrumentation key

    When dealing with different App Insight instances specified within config files using an Instrumentation Key, it can be difficult to locate the specific App Insight Instance in the Azure Portal, armed only with the instrumentation key.

    Given an instrumentation key, I would like to quickly navigate to the relevant Application Insights instance in the Azure Portal, perhaps by being able to see a couple of the characters from the instrumentation key next to the list of the App Insights instances.

  10. application insight rest api - allow filter on ingressTimestamp

    Currently the rest api does not allow to do the filter using "le", "ge" etc. IngressTimestamp which is part of CustomDimension item. I guess this is because it is treating ingressTimestamp as string field. It allows for eq operator but does not allow le gt etc. This is useful for pulling the incremental data from the application insight. we cannot rely on the timestamp field because some records are back filled. if we rely on timestamp to do the incremental extract then we miss some records

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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…
