  1. Please add "View full value" functionality for the Release Properties. Can't see long values.

    Please add "View full value" functionality for the Release Properties values. It is an issue for long text i.e. release notes. (Hints show full value)

    • Add "Last 3 Months" to time range selection

      Since Application Insights holds data of the last 3 months it would be great to have this selection. It is possible to do with the calendar controls but then you have to update the dates each time you revisit the chart.

      • Can AI support work item creation for on-premises TFS deployments?

        The existing work item creation integration flow targets hosted vsts accounts. Can AI also support work item creation for on-premises TFS deployments (as opposed to VSTS which is available now)?

        • Move dashboard widgets to another dashboard

          I am currently building multiple AppInsight dashboards and discovered there is no way to move a widget from one dashboard to another. Also, when looking at a AppInsight Chart and clicking the pin, I can't tell which dashboard it will be pinned to.

          • 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…

            • Display MySQL on Application Map when the database is hosted on VM

              I have a website and a MySQL database. The website is hosted as Azure Web App and have Application Insights enabled, and the database is hosted into VM instance. ow the database is not displayed on Application Map. It would be great to see the database on Application Map.

                  • Add a "button" to hide/unhide series

                    It would be good to be able to hide/unhide series from a chart by clicking on its name in the legend.
                    Hiding/unhiding bars in a barchart could be useful too.

                    • Add logarithmic scale to charts

                      It would be good to have an option to use logarithmic scale on bar and time charts.
                      This option may be both available in the UI and in the query language (with a "| render barchart logaritmic" ?)

                      • Application Insights save render barchart as image through API

                        I would like a functionality similar than logparser outout CHART: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/scriptcenter/dd919274.aspx

                        I would like to programmatically run a App Insights query (with a render barchart) to get a graph, and be able to save it as an image.

                        Right now we have to build many reports in word files, so we have to manually run the query, take a screenshot and copy&paste it to a word file. It would be great if we can automate all the process.

                        Thanks

                              • A way to tell App insights that service is server-side only

                                Our app is server-side only yet we get prompted for PageLoad time graphs and Applicatoin Map client side configurations etc, Many graphs will never show data.

                                If I can teach App insights that there will never be any client side info it would be great if the UI adapted and did not make it seem like I am not using all app insights features.

                                  • Allow full IP to be collected

                                    App Insights drops the last octet of an IP. The only way to collect full IP is to do it manually or mess with telemetry initializers. Not a big deal, but IPs are not so sensitive and I don't think these should be obfuscated at all. At least give us an option (ideally in the portal) to collect the full IP.

                                      Last octet is dropped by AI by design, since it represents PII (personally identifiable information). As you mentioned you can do this through the SDK or enrichment (i.e. customer can proactively collect PII, but not out of box). Can you describe a scenario where the full IP is required to triage/diagnose a production issue?

                                    • Lower granularity when in Full Screen

                                      In the Azure portal allow metric explorer with a lower granularity when making the 'blade' full screen (double clicking the top bar).
                                      Eg. by default 24 hour view has a 1 hour granularity. By making the blade full screen it will have a 10 minute granularity.

                                      • Make it possible in the AppInsight UI to check if you reached the limit on custom properties and remove old ones

                                        I *believe* that I may have accidentally reached the limit on custom properties, because I'm no longer able to create new ones (see reported issue "PageViewTelemetry Custom Properties not displaying in AppInsight, but DO appear in continuous export data").
                                        However, I have NO WAY to verify if that's the case, nor any way to clear out the erroneously created custom properties.

                                        As an aside, a limit of 200 properties is FAR too low...and far too easy to reach.

                                        This limit, combined with the inability to KNOW that the limit has been reached and no way to clean them up, has…

                                        • Bring Application Insights to Azure Stack

                                          APM-tools are crucial in our organisation. An on-prem solution for this is important for organisations that aren't allowed to store data outside on-prem datacenter.

                                          Would be a shame to be forced to use other on-prem software like appdynamics.
