  1. Variable data retention (longer or shorter than the 90-day default)

    Please provide longer retention for raw data. I'm willing to pay for (the additional azure storage)!

    • Support source maps in JavaScript exceptions

      Consider a large modern javascript application. Without seeing actual stack traces, diagnosing problems is really hard.

      We currently have the following setup:
      - Source maps are generated during build time and stored in private BLOB containers. We don't want to share sourcemaps for private projects with the world.
      - When JavaScript exception occurs, we gather the stack traces (using other js libraries such as stacktrace.js) and send a message to our backend service. This backend service finds appropriate source maps (it depends on client app version), prepares the de-obfuscated stack trace and logs a monitoring event.

      It would be nice…

      • Support resizing of pinned dashboards

        When pinning an analytic to the dashboard, I currently can't customize its size, so a detailed bar-chart takes up the same size as a query that just produces a single number. This wastes space for small items and makes detail hard to see where it is needed. It would be a good idea to support resizing of pinned dashboard (This idea was originally suggested Via the Analytics portal feedback channel).

          • "Not" filters in Application Insights

            The application insights filtering is currently inclusive and not exclusive. I would like to setup a filter where all information about a filter is included EXCEPT a selected filter value.

            For example, it is not possible to exclude metrics from ONLY Internet Explorer 8.0. I could select every filter except Internet Explorer 8.0, but then I will not see other new browser versions in the future as traffic comes from them.

            • Use public DNS servers in the same location as the test agents

              Web tests are showing high page response times and also failures in Azure regions farthest from the test location when the URL is a *.trafficmanager.net name and there are multiple endpoints in many Azure regions worldwide. The test agents are using local DNS servers that are forwarding to DNS servers most in Redmond, WA when resolving public domain names and this is causing Azure Traffic Manager to send a response with an endpoint that is farthest from the actual test agent location.

              Please take a look at the thread I started:

              https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/7efd2a25-0b11-497c-8020-7c5e932196aa/availability-requests-for-an-azure-traffic-manager-name-are-going-to-incorrect-azure-regions?forum=ApplicationInsights

              • Have an easy way to have only server side tracking

                I have a web app and
                1) dont want to introduce new cookies in it or client side api tracking calls
                2) dont want to log client information /IP (last 8 octet obfuscated is okay) . Think GDPR requirements.

                I still need to be able to track server side requests and exceptions and alert on them

                What is the easiest way to achieve this?
