  1. Application Insights in Canada regions

    We have restrictions that all our resources should be created in "Canada" region.
    As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights.
    Note: for example for customer implementing Sitecore solution which comes with Application Insights as first-class.

    Original ask here:
    https://feedback.azure.com/forums/34192--general-feedback/suggestions/18649744-application-insights-in-canada-regions
    But just saw that there is this dedicated uservoice for Application Insights.

    Thanks for your feedback.

        • 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.

            • Application Insights in United Kingdom

              Our customers require us to keep all our data including logs and telemetry inside UK data centers. Any updates on when Application Insights will be available in UK?

              • 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…

                  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?

                  • Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

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

                      • share workbooks with "guests"

                        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)

                          • Stop forcing me to give feedback - I have work to do

                            I am in the middle to trying to to work - and the Azure portal decides I need to provide feedback - no way to opt out - just provide feedback - or this drop down will not go away. It sucks - I am trying to do work - I will provide feedback when I am not in the middle of something .

                              • 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.

                                • Change variables and preconditions names in applicationHost.xdt file for app service extension in Azure

                                  The application insights azure app extension comes with an applicationHost.xdt file.
                                  You guys have the same names of variables and preconditions of all the examples found online.

                                  For example, the name of 2 variables and 1 precondition:
                                  HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING and HTTP_X_ORIGINAL_ACCEPT_ENCODING
                                  NeedsRestoringAcceptEncoding

                                  So when i added my own applicationHost.xdt file with the same variables names (as were the examples found online), in order to do reverse proxy with URL rewrite i had issues making it work.
                                  I am new to this, so it took me a while to figure it out that there was actually a clash with the variables and…

                                  • 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.

                                      With GDPR it would be nice to add a feature that allows you to redact user information when using the continuous export function with App Insights.
