  1. Tracking requests made by Apache Camel

    I would be nice to include tracking requests and dependencies made by Apache Camel. Right now, we cave custom configuration to track dependencies but it would be nice to have it in the SDK itself.

        • Sitecore Monitoring

          Although the integration with Application Insights will provide reasonable .net metrics, there is no clear documentation on how to get that from Sitecore.
          Please provide monitoring for Sitecore and its components, like MongoDB, SOLR, Tomcat

          • 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…

                • Have an easy way to have only server side tracking

                  I have a web app and
                  1) dont want to introduce new cookies in it or client side api tracking calls
                  2) dont want to log client information /IP (last 8 octet obfuscated is okay) . Think GDPR requirements.

                  I still need to be able to track server side requests and exceptions and alert on them

                  What is the easiest way to achieve this?

                  • Please provide documentation

                    There is need for a good reference documentation (like normal MSDN documentation on the MSDN site), as well as "user guide" documentation and architectural documentation with whitepapers and elaborations on the different ways the framework can be used under different circumstances. For example how to use it in complex solutions with man different systems and platforms involved with different development, testing and production environment, integration with VisualStudio.com and so on.

                    • Notify of problem when Scheduled Analytics Metric can't be saved

                      Failure responses when creating the Scheduled Analytics Metric don’t appear in the UI for me. After a few times trying to create a metric and getting a blank answer without the item saving, I used browser development tools to find out the HTTP response was a 400 (bad request) and had various errors.

                      Example 1: trying to save a metric with a name > 32 characters, the UI progress bar displays and quickly goes away, the metric doesn’t save, doesn’t go back to the list of metrics, and just sits there. Investigating the HTTP messages yields the following response: {"Message":"Metric…

                      • Add metric "Devices (Unique)" to AI UI

                        I send unique device id when track telemetry (Context.Device.Id = "unique-device-id").
                        I have no ability to add chart with devices metric.
                        Any chance of adding it?

                        • Data Factory in Visual Studio

                          I am new at Azure with VS (I am still using VS2015). I cannot seem to execute my data factory locally. In order to test I still have to publish to the cloud? If I am correct that this is a missing feature then it would be very useful to be able to run locally. Thanks.

                          • Disable particular Event(s) or Metric(s) on portal

                            I am a Localytics user. On Localytics management portal, there is admin page to allow administrators to enable or disable any event. Once event is disabled, Localytics will not process that event, simply discard it. This is very convenient, because it takes time to wait for the code change to propagate to production or all clients, sometimes, some client may never upgrade.

                            Once particular events are disabled, there will be no more cost generated by those events.

                            • Remove daily data limit for Visual Studio Enterprise subscribers

                              In a development situation, I've set up Application Insights to measure an Azure Function App. The function app is triggered every second with a small message from the IoTHub.
                              Within the hour, I've reached a daily data limit for Application Insights. As a Visual Studio Enterprise subscriber, I expect that I could use my monthly credit for selecting a pricing tier.

                                • How to perform queries using the Azure API format: user authentication

                                  I want to get json data as explain in rest api doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/overview

                                  customEvents | where customDimensions.teamId == '8bcb0466-8227-4de4-b001-b70381b9cd04'

                                  As the rest api have limit of 15 call per min and 1500 per day as doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/Authorization/Rate-limits says to use Azure API and Azure Active Directory but there is no example available for that.

                                  I want to do it in node js but didn't find any sdk for the same.

                                  For AD authentication I used assport-azure-ad library.

                                  • There needs to be a low-latency log display or API

                                    Like all telemetry, logging currently arrives in the form of searchable data only after a significant lag.

                                    That makes the logging unusable for debugging purposes, which is one of the most important use cases for logging.

                                    There needs to be a way to either view incoming log entries in near real-time or there needs to be an API to get at them at near real time.

                                    Alternatively, it should be possible to redirect the events to a message or even queue in near real time.

                                    At the moment, one has to send logging from one's application twice: once to app…

                                      • Add ability to dismiss the banner tips

                                        The banner tips are helpful, but I would like to dismiss them.
                                        They get annoying rather quickly since you can’t remove them and they take focus away.

                                        • Application Insights VSTS widget chart should fill in missing days in the chart with a value of 0.

                                          When I add the Application Insights widgets to my TFS dashboard, I am able to connect to my data just fine, but when there is no data for a day, the line does not go back to zero for that day, it just goes to the value for the next day with a value. I would like to have each day within the date range have a value of zero when there is no data for that date.
