  1. Generate alerts in case web tests are not executed because of certain reason.

    In case, web tests are not executed in azure application insight there should be an alert generated which can specify the reason behind such incident.

    • Remove limitation for 250 telemetry entries in VS local debug session

      Visual Studio developer analytics tooling has a limitation for showing only latest 250 telemetry entries in local debug session. It becomes really painful to diagnose the issues if App produces lots of telemetry, cos you need to figure out how to configure telemetry sampling\initializes to catch the issues in local debug session. Sending debug telemetry to AppInsights in Azure is not always an option. Often there are lags between sending the telemetry and time it appears in AppInsights .
      It would be great if AppInsights team removes this limitation in VS tooling.

      • Create a Saleforce case from an Application Insights alerts

        We monitor several on-prem applications via AI for various customers. It would be great if a Salesforce case could somehow be automatically created.

        • Add ability to recycle, stop, and start an IIS application pool

          It would be great if Application Insight could provide control over the current AppPool. And even better, if it could provide ability to reboot the server.

          • Configure Smart Detection to not report on irrelevant issues

            Some Smart Detection customers provided us with feedback that they would like to not receive Smart Detection about some performance of components they don't track or performances that are within their SLA.
            1. For example, detection about slow page load time for Browser version XYZ isn't relevant for our service because we don't support this browser. We'd like to configure Smart Detection to not send Detections about Browser version XYZ in the future.
            2. Another example: Detection about operation ZYX performance degraded from 1 sec to 3 sec. This detection isn't relevant for us since our SLA is 5 sec.…

            • Continuous export to Azure Data Lake Store

              Application Insights should support continuous export to Azure Data Lake Store the same way as support for continuous export to Blob Storage.

              Azure Data Lake Store is the new and "future proof" place to store all raw Big Data that you want to analyze using HD Insights / Azure Data Lake Analytics / Power BI etc.

              Attached is a slide from the "Introducing Data Lake" that shows the difference between Data Lake Store and Blob Storage https://mva.microsoft.com/en-US/training-courses/16910

                • Allow enabling Application Insights on Virtual Applications, entirely through the Portal

                  If App insights are turned on the portal for a given App Service containing Virtual applications, then the App Insights currently don't work ( Live stream shows the app is offline). MS has reported that this is not supported at the present time. But it would be a big help since it is a barrier to porting legacy applications.

                  • 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.

                          • Display Carriage Returns in Custom Data in Analytics Portal

                            I frequently add exception traces to messages and view them in the Analytics portal with custom queries. While it's nice to be able to query exceptions, looking at the data that contains content with linefeeds is a pain. It would be nice if the grid view expansion for custom data could break out the raw JSON strings in proper line broken content.

                            • App Insights API allow for customEvent name in $select query

                              I'm trying out the Azure Application Insights REST API GET /events query through the (https://dev.applicationinsights.io/apiexplorer/events) and I can get a full query working fine and works with most $select parameters like 'user/id' but whenever I try 'customEvent/name' it brings back a null value for the item when I know there is a value whenever I get the full query with no $select parameter. Is there another way to grab this value through the select param? I'm using the select param in order to filter down the number of columns brought back that I don't need.

                              Here is an…

                                    • Change Sample Telemetry list under Live Metrics Stream to append new items at the bottom

                                      The Sample Telemetry list adds new items at the top. This makes it confusing since lists normally append new stuff at the bottom.

                                      Change it to append and auto scroll to the bottom.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
