  1. Enable more cohort analysis tools in Application Insights

    We are using AI for assessing the usage of features using custom events, but better ways of seeing changes in usage over time within Application Insights queries would be beneficial (new chart types and cohort groupings)

    • Add the ability to define tags when creating VSTS Work Items in Application Insights

      By adding the ability of including tags with a Work Item for VSTS in the Application Insights workflow, this will allow teams to have better query granularity with work that is defined by events in Application Insights.

      • Zoom in and out on a time series chart

        I would like to be able to focus in on time chart plots. It's very annoying to manually tweak the time range.

        • Add ability to see related telemetry for dependency calls

          We can see related telemetry for requests and exceptions. Allow us to see this for dependecy calls as well. This would make it much easier to investigate slow or failed dependency calls.

          • Preserve Time Range

            When browsing around charts on Azure, they all seem to default to 24-hour time range. I almost always want a 30 minute time range because I'm usually looking at charts when I am trying to diagnose an issue. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Azure remembers this setting and it seems to be stored separately per blade so I find myself spending a lot of time just switching the granularity.

            Ideally, Azure would apply some machine learning and magically figure out what I want and adjust the defaults accordingly. More realistically, I would like to be able to setup a site-wide…

            • Add feature to accept insights data only sent from domain in the allowed list

              If somebody takes my Instrumentation key, they can use it to upload junk data to my App Insights.

              With Google Analytics you can create a white list of domains from which data will be accepted. Any data incoming from any other domain is simply rejected.

              I was hoping for AI to have this as well, but I didn't find it in my settings...

              • Add ARM template support for continuous export

                We can configure continuous export through PowerShell, but there is no way to do this through ARM templates currently. This would be very helpful.

                I use ARM templates to declare the desired state of my resource group. Every time I have to augment ARM templates with PowerShell commands, it gets much harder to deploy and test my deployment pipeline.

                • The preview-map needs more functionality like filtering on role or operation, as well as grouping/hiding of dependencies

                  In large scale deployments with multiple operations, roles and dependencies the current preview-map is rendered useless as long as filtering, grouping and so forth is not enabled. It should for example be possible to select a specific role to view all its sub operations and/or dependencies.

                    The new map experience since has been updated with better grouping of dependencies and the ability to click on any component and see the details of the dependencies/and operations in the performance and failure triage experiences, as well as overall KPI in the right side pane (for groups).

                    How is this working (or not) for you. We greatly appreciate your feedback and help with improving our product.

                  • 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 optional resource group filter to Live Metrics Stream

                        I would like to narrow my view down to only a single resource group when viewing the Live Metrics Stream. In my case I have similar assets deployed to different resource groups. Seeing them all together is good, but I would also like to see one (resource group's worth) at a time.

                          • Formatted Copy/Paste from results grid

                            I'd really like to copy-paste cells out of the result table, into a problem ticket or a wiki page.

                            Of course you don't stop Ctrl+C copy, but what comes out is just a bunch of run-together text, not an HTML table. Can you improve this experience?

                            • 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.

This information can then be used for certain auditing scenarios as well as usage and behavior information.

                                  SQL Server offers various query metrics such as CPU time, reads, and writes. However, this information is not exposed to client applications and services. Only duration from the client's perspective is available. I would like to see better integration of SQL Server metrics with client metrics.

                                    • Show different trace colors based on severity

                                      On the Search blade, all of the Traces are green, whether or not the level is Informational, Warning, Error, etc. It would be nice if you could change it so that Debug was blue, Informational was green, Warning was yellow, Error was red, etc. to make it easier to distinguish the different levels in the list.

                                        • Capture Screen Resolution is missing

                                          You used to be able to get Screen Resolution by creating a new Session chart and Grouping By "Screen Resolution". This option is no longer there! How can find this info now so it can help me make decisions (please don't let it be send custom events... i need to look at my current historic data)?
