  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)!

    We are still taking requests for onboarding to the preview of Application Insights variable retention. Some features required to enable this via self-service are taking longer than expected, but we are still working it, and in the meantime will be glad to enable your Application Insights resource to have different retention settings.

    The first iteration of this feature will allow setting retention up to 2 years in several increments for each Application Insights resource (e.g. not by data type). The pricing for this will follow the same Azure Monitor log data retention pricing as used by Log Analytics.

    We will be able to onboard a limited number of customers manually in the coming weeks. If you’re interested, please send me (dalek@microsoft.com) the instrumentation key(s) of your Application Insights resource(s), and the desired retention duration (30, 60, 120, 180, 270, 365, 550 or 730 days).

    Thank you
    Dale Koetke

  2. Application Insights in North Central US

    We have restrictions that all our disaster recovery resources should be created in "North Central US" region. As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights. Are there any plans on having app insights for North Central US region?

  3. 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?
