  1. Turn-off Smart Detection by Default in App Insight

    We love the Smart Detection feature and the capabilities it offers. However, we have been getting numerous complaints about email notifications. Some of the alerts are turned on by default and get sent to users of the applications that are not part of the Enterprise Application Monitoring Team. Rather than having the alerts turned on by default, we would prefer an opt-in scenario, where the notifications were turned off by default, thereby preventing notifications from being sent to an inappropriate audience. Even though we have a script to turn the feature off, this is an additional administrative burden.

      Hi All,

      Thank you for your feedback and suggestions!

      Following your feedback, we’re changing the default roles that receive email notifications from Smart Detection.

      Specifically, starting April 1, 2019, email notifications from Smart Detection will be sent only to users assigned to the subscription’s Monitoring Reader or Monitoring Contributor roles.

      More information about this upcoming change and how to prepare for it can be found here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/upcoming-change-to-azure-monitor-application-insights-smart-detection-emails/

      Thanks,
      Harel

    • Make Smart Detection data available via the App Insights REST API

      It would be great if information on issues identified by Proactive Detection was available via the App Insights REST API.

        Thank you for showing your support for this feature and seeing the value it would add to Smart Detection.

        We are continuing to assess when we can address this. Any more specific feedback on exactly what you’d like to see and how you would use this would be great.

        Thank you

      • Push notifications for Smart Detection alerts

        The email is usually a low priority tool. When there is a critical problem, I notice it too late (when I take the cell to check the email). I usually recive thousands of emails every day, however, push notifications are much less common and more visible.

          • Allow settings Smart Detection rules based on a default user specified template

            It is very tedious to have to setup which email address(es) need to be used rather than the default. It would be much easier if we could create a template and have that template be the default rather than the one you give us.

            • Send Smart Detection on performance degradation in time

              Smart Detection about operation performance degradation sent on daily basis, the ask is to send the notification when the degradation happens.

              • Show what instances are actually affected

                I have 20+ instances and Smart Detection tells me there was degradation for some period in response time. I have no way of knowing which Cloud App or Storage instance had the problem.

                • Turn off smart detection by http status code or exception type

                  For when the exception has really been handled by the app, but raised back to the client by design. E.g. a web api that returns a 400 Bad Request when post data fails validation.

                  Maybe this could be configured for particular route/status code combinations.

                      We monitor several on-prem applications via AI for various customers. It would be great if a Salesforce case could somehow be automatically created.

                      • Configure Smart Detection to not report on irrelevant issues

                        Some Smart Detection customers provided us with feedback that they would like to not receive Smart Detection about some performance of components they don't track or performances that are within their SLA.
                        1. For example, detection about slow page load time for Browser version XYZ isn't relevant for our service because we don't support this browser. We'd like to configure Smart Detection to not send Detections about Browser version XYZ in the future.
                        2. Another example: Detection about operation ZYX performance degraded from 1 sec to 3 sec. This detection isn't relevant for us since our SLA is 5 sec.…

                        • Add smart detection rule for abusive networks

                          Small/medium businesses get hammered by abusive actors daily. Having an alert in place to detect abusive clients would be extremely useful.

                                • Smart Detection to provide more details into .NET processes

                                  We have a WebAPI2 project that is spawning memory & CPU warnings - SmartDetection shows the metrics and when they occurred.

                                  However, there's no actionable details - like which .NET objects are consuming memory, or what API calls are generating CPU utilization.
