  1. Add support for viewing raw body requests

    It would be great to see raw body request on analytics. Good for monitoring restful api calls (for example json payloads)

  2. Enable collecting POST parameters by configuration

    When an exception happens and the details are captured on Application insight, it would be great if POST parameters were available as well.
    This feature can be turned off for certain pages via configuration r even posting an extra parameter like Ignore Post Parameters.
    This will make sure sensitive application data like login information is not captured.
    This feature can only work when a http POST ends up with a 500 error to assist debugging application, to make sure huge data is not captured and never used.

    There are natural PII concerns in auto-collecting POST parameters, and it’s something, as Dan mentioned, you can do yourself with telemetry initializer. That said, please keep upvoting so we can see how many folks are impacted by not having a more streamlined way of collecting POST parameters.

  3. C++ SDK for server and desktop applications

    We'd like to use Application Insights with our native (Win32) server application written in C++, as well as our Win32 desktop application (C++).

    Without C++ support we can't build a full stack solution based on Application Insights.

  4. Add a priority level for all traced events

    There should be a priority level that indicates the relative priority of the data.
    The priority level of a tracked item should be possible to set on an item by item basis, or by more general declarative rules.

    High priority data should be retained for longer time and care should be taken to make sure no high priority data is lost anywhere.

    Example of use case:
    You might want to mark events when a user change/request a new password longer than a metric of time taken for a storage request.

    Having different retention policies for different telemetry items is a very interesting feature request. Enabling this is fundamentally non-trivial, so please keep upvoting and including the use cases where this is necessary. Please keep in mind that you can today ensure retention longer than 90d by using continuous export to archive subsets of the telemetry to external storages/data warehouses of your choice.
