  1. Render GANTT charts

    Adding ability to render GANTT charts to visualize data. This will be extremely helpful to see if there are any race conditions in my code. Can easily identify concurrent requests to a shared resource.

    • 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.

      • Calls to Remote Dependencies | Names are not useful

        it shows TYPE, DEPENDENCY, DURATION, SUCCESS.

        It's cool, but for me DEPENDENCY is the name my remote sql server, and if i go 10 times for different reasons I get 10 items with the same name, and I have to click each of them to see what the command is.

        My idea is that at least, when the blade is maximized show the ACTUAL "Dependency name" property, which in my case is SQL: [MYSCHEMA].[MYPROCEDURE]

        I have no idea why this is not shown by default, or at least no way to configure it.

        Cheers

        • 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.

            • Support updating the query for a graph.

              After pinning a query w/graph etc. to a dashboard, i can't edit/update the query, in-place. i'm forced to goto analytics, which creates a new query, when modified the only option i have is to pin the new query to my dashboard. then edit the title of the new graph, delete the old one and rework the layout.
              would be really great if i could simply edit/update the query associated with an already pinned graph.

              • Create REST api for custom tracking i.e. trackEvent, trackView

                Create a REST api which will allow tracking methods to be called via a REST api.

                E.g POST methods for creating custom events https://dev.applicationinsights.io/api/trackevent

                • Add Seconday Axis to Charts in Analytics

                  I have 3 output columns TimeStamp(datetime), JobRunDuration (int), RowsProcessed (int)

                  When I use “render timechart” AI is showing me the two Int values on same axis.
                  It would be great if a secondary axis could be added to charts so that two values could be represented in same chat.

                    • Allow grids to be pinned to the dashboard

                      Currently, you can pin charts (either built-in or ones created in Metrics Explorer) to a portal Dashboard. However, pinning a grid does not seem to be supported. This would be very useful for data that is grouped around things like the operation name or dependency name.

                      • Allow auto-simplification "Others" group on dashboard pinned charts to be hidden.

                        Depending on the data being charted the auto-aggregated "Others" group can sometimes be the largest value and overwhelm the other data points in the chart.

                        For these cases it would be useful to be able to disable showing the Others group chart lines.

                        • Support "Data from Debug Session Telemetry" option for all project types that can send telemetry

                          The option to show the live Telemetry Data from the current or last debug session in Visual Studio is currently explicitly restricted so that it only works for ASP.NET project types with direct AI configuration.

                          It should be made possible to manually enable this VS integration feature for any Visual Studio solution or startable project type that is known to emit AI telemetry events.

                          • WCF Message Logging

                            I have just tried the WCF monitoring with Application Insights and it seems to be very helpful. One thing I'm missing is a feature to log the raw (soap xml) messages, too. Would be great if you could add such a feature.

                                • Allow specifying Tags in ApplicationInsight.config

                                  The article at [1] provides guidance on using tags to annotate requests so that we can separate traffic coming from separate environments and such. However, adding tags right now requires explicitly writing an IContextInitializer.

                                  It would be great if specifying the tags would be available as an option directly from the ApplicationInsights.config file, either by directly providing an element for including the tag data, or by providing a built-in IContextInitializer that read it from the application configuration.

                                  [1] http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/01/07/application-insights-support-for-multiple-environments-stamps-and-app-versions.aspx

                                  • Azure monitor alert rules should allow importing queries from analytics explorer

                                    It would be awesome if there was a mechanism to allow importing queries from Analytics Explorer into Azure monitor alert rules.

                                    Today, while creating these alert rules, we have to copy-paste queries from analytics explorer. This means one has to (potentially) maintain several versions of the same query.

                                        • Make available REST APIs to create and fetch the API Key for Application Insights.

                                          Currently API Key needs to be created either from the portal or there is a powershell command available for it. However no REST API exists for same. As part of Azure REST support for Web Framework I think and strongly believe, support for such crucial services must be added to the REST.

                                          Thank You.
