  1. Provide more details when exception is thrown by App Insights SDK

    When I tried to track exceptions thrown by WCF services using telemetry.TrackException of the Microsoft.ApplicationInsights library then the exception was tracked but a exception was also thrown for System.ArgumentException: 'Value does not fall within the expected range.' The stack trace showed the following:

    at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo)
    at System.Web.Hosting.IIS7WorkerRequest.GetServerVariableInternal(String name)

    The exception did not mention which argument and what value was affected. So its very hard to find the root cause of the issue and arrive at a solution. Screenshot of the code and exception has been attached

  2. Tracking requests made by Apache Camel

    I would be nice to include tracking requests and dependencies made by Apache Camel. Right now, we cave custom configuration to track dependencies but it would be nice to have it in the SDK itself.

  3. Adaptive sampling suppport for Node.js

    Add adaptive sampling for Node.js SDKs

    "Adaptive sampling automatically adjusts the volume of telemetry sent from the SDK in your ASP.NET app." - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/app-insights-sampling

  4. AAD Authenticated Application Insights SDK for data submission

    Current data submission through AI client requires a Key.

    Storing a key in an application is not desirable. It will be a good idea if the AAD-authenticated applications (Service Principals) could be used instead of passing the key.

    See Azure Key Vault integration with Azure Active Directory for an example of this works

  5. Ignore Microsoft generated internal events caused by an App Service's 'Always On' feature so the application insights feed is not cluttered

    When Always ON is selected for an App service App, Microsoft send a keep alive 'Get /' to the app every 5 mins that clutters up the Application insights feed with events that are reality an internal system function and not related to 'real traffic'. (Real Get / events would want to be recorded). Could this traffic be ignored by insights rather than needing to implement filtering based upon the request source and type.

  6. Link for upgrading SDK does not match programming language

    The text says 'Your application is instrumented with Application Insights SDK version java:2.4.0. Upgrade to the latest stable SDK to get a live feed of events with details like request url, response code, SQL query, and exception stack.' so it does know that we use java, however the link is to https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Web/2.2.0 whereas it should point to Maven central.

    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.

  7. Introduction of App Insight SDK externally to deployed production applications

    Currently for production applications or applications which include product binaries, we are not able to enable introduction of SDK easily. We require to update application binaries (war, ear etc.) to update web.xml, but this is not always possible in production application.

    There is a need to introduce App Insight SDK externally to deployed production applications whereas there is not change/impact to application which is running.

  8. Any estimate on when the App Insights snapshot debugger feature will leave 'preview'?

    I've tried to find a roadmap or plan somewhere, to no avail.
    The feature is amazing, but I'm having trouble within our organizational policy bringing in tools in that are not yet GA.

    It also was difficult to establish if the feature was still in preview, various places seem ambivalent on the status (e.g. nuget, azure portal, ms docs tend to either omit or keep the preview label)

  9. Add convenience support for aggregating metrics

    Can the sample code here be supported and merged into the SDK? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/app-insights-api-custom-events-metrics#aggregating-metrics

    I like how natural and convenient the Requests and Exceptions and etc. integration is (for ASP.NET) but metrics is less convenient at the moment.

  10. Ability to set users Browser Location to App Insights from the javascript.

    We have a business scenario, where our internet server is located in different country region (HongKong) and my application users are accessing the app from India. However, in page view report the users location is still show as HongKong. I think this is something we should have ability to overcome. It is very much likable scenario for other Companies as well and could add more value to the Application Insights as well.

    I had communication with one of the exec from Microsoft and found that there is a method by which we set authenticated user (setAuthenticatedUserContext). Can we have a…

  11. Support Enterprise Library Console for Application Insights Diagnostics Logging

    Logging through Enterprise Logging Library is now possible through the NuGet package here: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.EntlibTraceListener/0.1.0-build00190.

    The main problem is that the Enterprise Library Console doesn't support this reference
    So as soon as we add a reference to Application Insights Diagnostics Logging, we can't use the Enterprise Library Configuration Console anymore

  12. Please provide documentation

    There is need for a good reference documentation (like normal MSDN documentation on the MSDN site), as well as "user guide" documentation and architectural documentation with whitepapers and elaborations on the different ways the framework can be used under different circumstances. For example how to use it in complex solutions with man different systems and platforms involved with different development, testing and production environment, integration with VisualStudio.com and so on.

  13. Support more detailed region tracking (and not only by country)

    Currently all traffic from your analysis is mapped to "Germany" (or Spain, ...) as region only. This create a lot of single spots but does not allow detailed analysis on the region or city even if those fields are supported in AI.

  15. HttpException logging misses custom properties set by context initializer

    Hello,

    When Web API instances receives HttpException, some internal classes of App Insights log HttpException to portal.

    The issue is that it doesn't log customer properties which should be associated with this exception (I tried global context initializer and local TelemetryClient instance usage of "Properties" property.

  16. It would be great having Application Insight API so that for mobile phones it can be synced with offline data

    As far as we know that application insight service needs internet to post data to azure. For mobile platforms, we should have API accessible so that offline data can be synced using SQLlite and AI.
