  1. First class support for Service Fabric

    While Service Fabric was in preview there was a nuget package for AI in SF, but seems that it has not gone GA with SF. Would love to see health reports from SF in AI, along with monitoring of services/actors.

    • Make Smart Detection data available via the App Insights REST API

      It would be great if information on issues identified by Proactive Detection was available via the App Insights REST API.

        Thank you for showing your support for this feature and seeing the value it would add to Smart Detection.

        We are continuing to assess when we can address this. Any more specific feedback on exactly what you’d like to see and how you would use this would be great.

        Thank you

      • live metrics support for Node.js

        Support for "Live Metrics" in Application Insights for Node.js (and Java) applications.

        If not already supported (I can't find it), I would suggest that feature so we can get good information about our Node and Java applications.

        • 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?

          • Application Insights in Canada regions

            We have restrictions that all our resources should be created in "Canada" region.
            As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights.
            Note: for example for customer implementing Sitecore solution which comes with Application Insights as first-class.

            Original ask here:
            https://feedback.azure.com/forums/34192--general-feedback/suggestions/18649744-application-insights-in-canada-regions
            But just saw that there is this dedicated uservoice for Application Insights.

            Thanks for your feedback.

            • Create AI VSTS widget that supports Analytics queries

              Create a VSTS widget that supports Analytics queries. Being able to use Analytics Queries would be really useful. With AIQL, you can create widgets that are targeted, meaningful, and specific to the team.

              • Support for crash data of mobile apps (HockeyApp Bridge app)

                It would be nice if Application Insights can collect crash data of mobile apps by using HockeyApp Bridgs App (https://azure.microsoft.com/ja-jp/blog/access-hockeyapp-data-in-ai-with-hockeyapp-bridge-app/) or somehow. It seems to work only with legacy Windows Apps (WPF/WinForms) but not mobile apps.

                  The request is being resolved as “unplanned”. As HockeyApp moves to Visual Studio Mobile Center (https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/mobile-center/), we will be implementing such functionality there. Existing HockeyApp customers will have a migration path towards Visual Studio Mobile Center. Until this feature is available however, we would ask you instrument crashes using the Custom Event mechanism available in HockeyApp and Application Insights Analytics.

                • Handle TSQL commands in the dependency blade better

                  In the command field in the dependency blade, long TSQL commands get truncated and remove the most important part of the statement, the FROM and WHERE clauses. Without this, the entire blade is almost useless.

                  It would be better to show the entire statement, or even truncate the start of the statement, rather than the end.

                    • Push notifications for Smart Detection alerts

                      The email is usually a low priority tool. When there is a critical problem, I notice it too late (when I take the cell to check the email). I usually recive thousands of emails every day, however, push notifications are much less common and more visible.

                        Here’s a status update from Anton: Push notification for Smart Detection alerts work was back due to other higher priority work items, but this is still planned in the backlog.

                      • Ability to export all the data of currently selected event to CSV / JSON

                        When you've selected a particular event, all of it's data is show in the detail tab. Provide an ability to quickly save this as CSV / JSON from the portal for reference.

                          • Error message of delete failure should be more specific.

                            Even just the App Insights resource is locked to prevent to be deleted, we can't determine it since the error message is as below.

                            "Could not deleted
                            Could not delete application"

                            The message should be more specific like as other resources such as Web Apps.

                                I would love to be able to take different metrics/data, and show them with live data on my own company website or dashboard.

                                We could show the overall performance of our company apps on our custom dashboard.
                                It could be an easy way for us to give customers various data about our apps on their environment.

                                And tonnes of more uses.

                                • Track SignalR traffic

                                  Right now, SignalR and WebSockets messages are invisible to AI. Worse yet, they count as a really long HTTP request. It would be nice to have a separate diagram in the Live Metrics Stream blade and everywhere else where successful or failed request are being displayed.

                                  • Application Insights: Added Aggregation Type "Median" to Metric Charts

                                    For Metric Charts there are options Sum, Min, Max, Avg.

                                    An additional option Median would be often helpful because it is resistant against outliers.

                                    (The median is the number separating the higher half of values from the lower half.)

                                      We recently shipped a public preview of the new Interactive Performance Investigation experience which allows filtering out the outliers for given percentile. To try it out, on the Application Insights resource, select “Previews” tab on the Application Insights resource and opt-in to preview of this feature. Please leave feedback for new functionality. In the meantime, I am resetting the status of this request to “under review”.

                                    • Enable ARM support for API Access Keys

                                      I would like to deploy an entire solution based on App Insights which data is presented via a Web App:
                                      https://github.com/CatalystCode/bot-fmk-dashboard

                                      The web app I'm deploying will use the api of app insights to display insights and aggregated data in the form of graphs and metrics.

                                      For this to work, the web app needs to have access the app insights api and that can only be done via access keys.

                                      I want to enable customers to deploy the application with "one click arm deployment".

                                      Currently, after deployment, users have to create a key, copy app id and api key, open…

                                        • Support a single unified solution for n-Tier Windows Desktop & Server Applications

                                          Application Insights has become significantly less useful since the decision to fragment the telemetry experience by pointing rich client applications at HockeyApp and restricting AI to ASP.NET scenarios.

                                          For Enterprise Development Scenarios we would like to be able to use a single supported solution that works consistently across n-Tier applications built using the full range of currently supported Microsoft Platforms (.NET & Win32 Desktop Applications, Windows Services, WCF Services).

                                          In practise this is still just about possible by using the low level AI SDK, but increasingly Windows Desktop apps are being locked out of new features e.g. the Visual Studio…
