    • Remove Limits such as less than 100 unique values for each property for filtering and group-by

      We are actively using Application Insights with SharePoint 2013 (On-Premise) to send telemetry data. We are constantly hitting 100 unique value limit. Can this limit be removed or at least increased to 1000.

      • Track CDN metrics in Application Insights

        I want to collect my telemetry data for my cdn and be able to tell
        - my overall cdn metrics for my app integrated in my solution
        - if I have a gain when enabling cdn
        - where I should leverage cdn

        • save my filters in the live metrics stream

          When I filter out SignalR and Dependency 404's, for example, on the Live Metrics Stream, let me save that so I don't have to do it every time I'm monitoring the site.

          • 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.

            • Enable the creation of Annotations in VSTS linux agents

              Adding the release annotation task on a Linux agent throws the following error:

              [error]A supported task execution handler was not found. This error usually means the task does not carry an implementation that is compatible with your current operating system. Contact the task author for more details.

              Write the release task to support Linux or OS agnostic.

              • There is a delay of time for Application Insights Log Analytics data to appear in my dashboard

                My application will push logs to Appln Insights. When I search for the same log entries it wont appear immediately. It will show up after some delay of 3-5 mins. This issue is a show stopper for me. Please let me know the resolution.

                • Support for versioned queries in Analytics Explorer

                  It would be awesome if Analytics Explorer could load queries from source control.

                  Queries saved in Analytics Explorer itself (under "my queries" or "shared queries") are not versioned. Nor is there any rollback facility.

                  • Allow cloning of existing azure monitor alert rules

                    Most of our alert rules are variants/copies of each other: same alert target, same action group, similar search queries, evaluation logic etc.

                    It would be great if we could simply clone an existing alert rule (and modify it as needed) instead of creating one from scratch each time.

                    • Data Purger role should respect Azure role-based access control (RBAC)

                      We have an AD Group which has been granted Data Purger role through the resource group containing all of our development AI resources.

                      However, it seems like the Purge API does not respect this. Instead, we would need to set explicit permissions for each user on each of the AI resources which is not an option in the management perspective.

                      • Export user flow graph as png/jpg/pdf

                        There should be an option to export the user flow graph to an image or a PDF, so it can be shared with colleagues who don't have and need not have Azure access.

                        • Add Release annotations to Live Stream and Metrics, not just Metrics Explorer!

                          Annotations would be very valuable on Live Stream and the new Metrics(preview) area. My hope this would also push to the dashboards created from these as well.

                          • Automatic refresh and configurable refresh interval

                            Introduce a dashboard setting to allow configuring a refresh interval, similar to the concept in Kibana, e.g.

                            https://s33.postimg.cc/4dy7qrbhb/refresh-interval.png

                            At the configured interval, all tiles on a dashboard should refresh their sources and update accordingly

                              • Support better deep linking to blades

                                Right now one can copy the URL in paste it somewhere for others to click on to go immediately to a blade item in Application Insights, such as an exception. However, the link is very long and sometimes when users go straight to the URL it doesn't load correctly the first time. It would be nice if there was a "share" link or something similar where we could get a shorter url and if going straight to the urls loaded correctly the first time.

                                  After I turn on continuous export I would like to do a one time pull of event data that occurred before continuous export was enabled. This feature would export the data in the same format provided by continuous export to make it easy to ingest into a downstream reporting system.

                                  • Support exception.Data.Add()

                                    The Exception class allows us to add custom data using exception.Data.Add("label", "value"). It would be useful if this data could show up in Application Insights.

                                    Using telemetry.TrackException() we can report custom data in a very similar way as a Dictionary<string,string>, so hopefully it wouldn't be much work to support exception.Data.Add().

                                    The advantage would be that the custom data would be supported for exceptions that are caught and rethrown, as well as those using telemetary.TrackException().

                                    • Add support for non-HTTP(S) availability tests (TCP, UDP, DNS etc)

                                      It would be great if availability tests also supported non-HTTP test types, so that we could test SFTP/SSH based external services as well.

                                      • Validate HTTPS connection in URL Ping test

                                        I found current URL Ping test doesn't validate the HTTPS connection, e.g. if the SSL certificate's subject doesn't match the domain, the URL ping test will still pass. Sometimes if the SSL certificate expires, I'd like the URL Ping test fails so I can get the notification about it, because the end users will get the error when they access the URL with web browser.

                                        Please Do consider it.
