    • Allow auditing of Application Insights activity

      Support the ability to audit and view who is using various features in AI, ad hoc queries that are run, what information was viewed, etc. Perhaps feed this information into Azure Activity Logs or similar. This information can then be used for certain auditing scenarios as well as usage and behavior information.

        • 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.

            • Integrate SQL Server Query Metrics Such as Server CPU Time

              SQL Server offers various query metrics such as CPU time, reads, and writes. However, this information is not exposed to client applications and services. Only duration from the client's perspective is available. I would like to see better integration of SQL Server metrics with client metrics.

                  • Increase the number of exceptions that appear in the VS Code Lens. Limiting to the top 15 exceptions is too small for large code bases.

                    Increase the number of exceptions that appear in the VS Code Lens. Limiting to the top 15 exceptions is too small for large code bases. Perhaps top 100 exceptions or more would be much better.

                    • Add expand-all

                      Add an "Expand All" option to the parsed stack result view in the details column of the Exception objects.
                      This way, you don't have to click each individual component to expand it.

                      • Uncheck all event types in Diagnostic Search filter

                        When I browse all telemetries in Diagnostic Search, I sometimes need to focus just on one Event Type (for example Requests). Now I have to uncheck another Event Types.

                        My suggest is add "un/check" box for all telemetries (see attachment)

                        • 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.

                          • Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

                            The portal looks great. Very slick. Not applying the dark theme to this cool view is jarring.

                            • Remember settings of application insight live stream screen

                              Remember settings of application insight live stream screen. It is annoying to reset all settings each day for live monitoring my web app. Beginning with telemetry filters, ending with colums displayed for the instances.

                              • Capture Region of Executing Process as part of analytics data

                                In the analytics schema, we have fields cloud_RoleName and cloud_RoleInstance. When an application is deployed to multiple regions and each deployment is using a single instrumentation key, it would be useful to split data by the cloud geographic region that processed the telemetry,

                                e.g. cloud_GeoRegion, to contain data such as 'West Europe', 'West US', 'UK West' etc.

                                This would apply to any of the schemas, where cloud_RoleName and cloud_RoleInstance are recorded.

                                    • Ability to look up App Insights instance by IKey in Azure portal

                                      I have an IKey and am trying to figure out which AI instance it corresponds to. Clicking through every AI instance isn't very fun. Lookup would be much nicer. =)

                                      • SQL query monitoring for ASP.NET Core

                                        Currently SQL query monitoring is supported for 'classic' ASP.NET projects. For ASP.NET Core projects however SQL queries don't get monitored at all. Not when target .NET Full and not when targeting .NET Core.

                                        • Ability to disable weekly digest and all mail using ARM

                                          The defaults digest and welcome mail setting of spamming all accounts in the Azure subscription doesn't work in practice and real world scenario's, with lots of people working in Azure using multiple Dev, Test, Acceptance environments.
                                          We would like to have an option to disable these mails while creating an AI resource, so we can add this to our ARM template.
