  1. Add a public library of common used analytics queries

    While some applications have specific requirements, a lot of reports that come out of analystics must be pretty common. It would be nice to have an área in which to find common queries already optimized and 'verified' by the community and/or Microsoft itself.
    Queries like: "between two dates, which are the pages that had most time consumption difference"

    • 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.

        • 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...

            • 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.
              Allowing for…

              • Character encodings supported by Application Insights

                It would be nice if it is clarified which character encoding is supported by Application Insights and SDKs.
                We may want to send telemetry with application logs via LogBack and AI Appender but the log may have multi-bytes local language characters.

                • 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.

                          • 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.

                                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?

                                  Support the ability to audit and view who is using various features in AI, ad hoc queries that are run, what information was viewed, etc. Perhaps feed this information into Azure Activity Logs or similar. 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.

                                      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)?

                                      • 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.

                                          Today when the Daily Cap is reached , Azure sends an email to the account administrators - a web hook will allow alerting a wider group of people which this message is relevant to.
