  1. Add support for Intranet application testing (not just via Internet). E.g., via NTLM

    App Insights works great for externally-facing applications. Would like the same rich experience for Internal/Intranet applications.

    With the release of Azure Functions 2.0, the previously posted template no longer works.

    However, we recognize the need for this request, and are actively scoping and prioritizing the work needed to make it happen.

    I am very interested in speaking with anyone who needs this feature to learn more about your scenarios, particularly any information around cost issues. If you would like to help me scope this feature, please reach out: mogrobin@microsoft.com.

  2. Increase Limit on Number of Availability Tests

    We have a need to monitor each of our customers, which have a unique URL (such as customer1.example.com, customer2.example.com). We have 170 (and growing) number of customers per a single Application Insights instance. We are trying to programatically create an Availability Test for each customer and are hitting the limit of 100 Availability Tests.

    Can this limit be increased? Is there another workaround?

  3. Validate HTTPS connection in URL Ping test

    I found current URL Ping test doesn't validate the HTTPS connection, e.g. if the SSL certificate's subject doesn't match the domain, the URL ping test will still pass. Sometimes if the SSL certificate expires, I'd like the URL Ping test fails so I can get the notification about it, because the end users will get the error when they access the URL with web browser.

    Please Do consider it.

  5. Ability to group availability tests

    We have a long list of availability tests for each one of our production environments (PROD, Staging, DR, etc). I would be nice to be able to group/visualize them - a two-level hierarchy should be fine

  6. Add support for non-HTTP(S) availability tests (TCP, UDP, DNS etc)

    It would be great if availability tests also supported non-HTTP test types, so that we could test SFTP/SSH based external services as well.

  7. Add plugin/data source functionalities for Multi-step Web Tests

    Currently it's not possible to create a custom plugin or to add a data source.

  8. Add support for HTTP method and HTTP header in "URL ping" web tests

    Lots of our API requires authorization, in these cases we need to add HTTP header to the request.

    We've had a problem with app service not accepting PUT and DELETE requests multiple times (the requests were canceled before they reached our code = they were not logged in Application Insights for example) and we want to have a test that lets us know when this happens again.

    In both cases, URL ping test would be enough we could specify HTTP method & HTTP header. It does not make sense to use multi step web tests for this & pay for…

  10. 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.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  11. Availability tests to test all instances of scaled WebApps

    When you monitor the availability of a WebApp which has been scaled and has multiple instances, the tests are not very useful.

    There can be unresponsive instance, but the availability tests might just target the healthy ones and potential issue goes unnoticed.

    So it would beneficial if the tests could check each instance individually and also include the instance id in the alerts.

  13. 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.

  14. Decrease Web Test lantency after disabling monitoring

    After a Web Test is disabled, there is a 15-20 minutes latency before it is really disabled.
    It is causing a bunch of false-possitive alerts during automated deployments. Is there any way to reduce it?
    Thanks.

  16. Add validation rule that validates properties of Json

    Would accept if you had to provide a model of the json as template while creating the test.

  17. Generate alerts in case web tests are not executed because of certain reason.

    In case, web tests are not executed in azure application insight there should be an alert generated which can specify the reason behind such incident.

  19. Please fix web testing urls without a prefix (like example.com)

    Currently you can't add a web test with an url like http://example.com
    It will come up with the error: Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined

    When adding a http://www.example.com which 302 redirecs to http://example.com,
    the following exception is in the Web test result details "Exception" section:
    System.UriFormatException: Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined.
    at System.Uri.CreateThis(String uri, Boolean dontEscape, UriKind uriKind)
    at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebTesting.HtmlDocument.ParseForDependentRequests(Boolean urlsOnly)
    at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebStress.WebTestCaseVariation.BuildDependentRequestsList(WebTestInstrumentedTransaction instrumentedTransaction)
    at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.WebStress.WebTestCaseVariation.AddParsedDependentRequests(ExecutionState executionState)
