    • Application Insights in China

      Application Insights is unfortunately not availble in Azure China. Are there any plans to support Application Insights in China?
      It would be necessary to run our production services in that region.

        • filter app map based on tag or environment

          App Map as well as metrics can get cluttered with dev/test and even local machine data. While you could use different app insights keys, it would also be helpful to easily tag an environment and then easily filter out an environment on app map and other visualizations

          • Make data retention period configurable by data type / event content

            For now data retention period is fixed to 90 days and can't be changed.
            In reality telemetry events have different values and should be stored accordingly.
            For example I'm interested in storing exception data only for a day or two, just to raise alerts. Trace records are needed to diagnose particular behavior\ reproduce a bug, so they should be kept just for the time I need to get this job done.
            On the contrary user related events, like purchases, logins, specific actions are very valuable and should be stored for years.
            These retention rules are unique to each business, so…

            • service endpoint

              As a financial organisation we need to be able to send information securely to Application Insights to within our own virtual network and not via a public IP. Given Application Insights could potentially contain private and/or confidential data which definitely is not desired to be sent outside of our corporations network. So in order or our team to be able to use the functionality of Application Insights it would be great if we could have the functionality send the information via a service endpoint instead of one of the current public ip addresses.

              • Failover for Application Insight as part of Disaster Recovery Plan

                We do not see fail-over mechanism for Application insight which should work for Disaster Recovery Plan. Seems DR still not supported by Application insight, below link for reference -

                • Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

                  The portal looks great. Very slick. Not applying the dark theme to this cool view is jarring.

                  • Draw dependencies in Application Map for independent services on same sub domain

                    When two independent services with different cloud role names are hosted on the same subdomain are called from the same source than the Application Map feature in Application Insight does not draw a connection from the source to both application nodes. Instead, the source is only connected to one service node, see "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" in the attached zip file.

                    The file "BadApplicationMap.cs" have code which produces some sample telemetry that illustrates the current limitation of the Application Map feature. See also "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" for the application map that is created by the telemetry from that code.…

                    • 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?

                      • Add a clone button to quickly create a copy for another environment like QA, Staging or PROD

                        Hi,

                        We created an App Insights instance in development (DEV) we would like to instantiate also for other environments like QA, Staging and Production. Currently we export the PowerShell and ARM Template but that doesn't work (ticket has been created as the export is syntactically incorrect and action groups are missing) and is also cumbersome. It would be such a great user experience to just to hit clone, enter some parameters, like a new name, resource group etc, and be done with it. It would be a huge productivity boost.

                        Thanks!

                            • Add support for other named dependency types

                              At the moment only SQL or HTTP is supported.

                              I am using dependency tracking to time dependencies for specific function calls, or third party components. It would be good to identify these with meaningful names and have icons to support them in views on the portal.

                              • Add back the ability to View all Telemetry for this single operation from within End-to-End view

                                End-to-End view gives ALOT of data. If I select a single operation in the long list of things a user did in their session, I want the "Related Items" pane on the left to allow me to see all telemetry items FOR THIS SINGLE OPERATION. I can see whole session and root operation. I had to disable End-To-End to restore this functionality.

                                  It would be helpful to be able to share workbooks with "guests": email accounts outside of the organization with read-only access to view the workbooks (use case: share some performance charts with customers)

                                  • The time range filter enhancement

                                    In "Application map". The time range filter needs to have a paging for date ranges.

                                    Currently i need to set the 01/01/2019 9:00AM - 01/01/2019 10:00AM click Apply. then to see the next hour or previous hour, i need to reenter these datetime. Instead having a paging buttons would be a better user experience.

                                      • Get the InstrumentationKey currently in ApplicationInsights.config from web.config or Portal App Settings

                                        Full App Insights functionality depends on the InstrumentationKey being specified in a file called ApplicationInsights.config deployed to the root of the application. On deployment, it's difficult to transform the app insights config file with the application insights instrumentation key used by the application.

                                        I suggest that Application Insights, instead of pulling the instrumentation key from the ApplicationInsights.config file, get the instrumentation key from the portal application settings, from the APPINSIGHTS_INSTRUMENTATIONKEY, for example.

                                        This would avoid Release Engineers from having to manually edit the ApplicationInsights.config file on every release to an environment. If they neglect to do this, one could end…
