  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)!

      Application Insights variable retention is in active development now with release planned the first half of 2019.

      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) your Application Insights ikeys.

      Thank you

    • Turn-off Smart Detection by Default in App Insight

      We love the Smart Detection feature and the capabilities it offers. However, we have been getting numerous complaints about email notifications. Some of the alerts are turned on by default and get sent to users of the applications that are not part of the Enterprise Application Monitoring Team. Rather than having the alerts turned on by default, we would prefer an opt-in scenario, where the notifications were turned off by default, thereby preventing notifications from being sent to an inappropriate audience. Even though we have a script to turn the feature off, this is an additional administrative burden.

        Hi All,

        Thank you for your feedback and suggestions!

        Following your feedback, we’re changing the default roles that receive email notifications from Smart Detection.

        Specifically, starting April 1, 2019, email notifications from Smart Detection will be sent only to users assigned to the subscription’s Monitoring Reader or Monitoring Contributor roles.

        More information about this upcoming change and how to prepare for it can be found here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/upcoming-change-to-azure-monitor-application-insights-smart-detection-emails/

        Thanks,
        Harel

      • 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?
