    • Formatted Copy/Paste from results grid

      I'd really like to copy-paste cells out of the result table, into a problem ticket or a wiki page.

      Of course you don't stop Ctrl+C copy, but what comes out is just a bunch of run-together text, not an HTML table. Can you improve this experience?

      • Allow settings Smart Detection rules based on a default user specified template

        It is very tedious to have to setup which email address(es) need to be used rather than the default. It would be much easier if we could create a template and have that template be the default rather than the one you give us.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

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

              • 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.

                  • Capture Screen Resolution is missing

                    You used to be able to get Screen Resolution by creating a new Session chart and Grouping By "Screen Resolution". This option is no longer there! How can find this info now so it can help me make decisions (please don't let it be send custom events... i need to look at my current historic data)?

                      I have 20+ instances and Smart Detection tells me there was degradation for some period in response time. I have no way of knowing which Cloud App or Storage instance had the problem.

                      • Add a web hook to notify on Daily cap

                        Today when the Daily Cap is reached , Azure sends an email to the account administrators - a web hook will allow alerting a wider group of people which this message is relevant to.

                        • Add Seconday Axis to Charts in Analytics

                          I have 3 output columns TimeStamp(datetime), JobRunDuration (int), RowsProcessed (int)

                          When I use “render timechart” AI is showing me the two Int values on same axis.
                          It would be great if a secondary axis could be added to charts so that two values could be represented in same chat.

                          • SDK for WCF - make it official!

                            I like the idea of monitoring WCF Services with Application Insights and I'm sucessfully using the related SDK Lab already in production for a while. Please make the WCF Lab SDK offical! In addition, it would be nice to be able to log the RAW SOAP Messages as well.

                            • Azure Dashboard Tiles for Scalar Analytics Queries

                              For simple KPIs it would be great to be able to pin a simple scalar result to a small (1x1 to 2x2) dashboard tile.

                              Ideally these could be made visually identical to the built-in KPI tiles from Application Insights for Users, Page Views, etc, including the option to set an Icon & Up/Down trend.

                                I am logging entire JSON objects and I would like to query the API based on attributes of these objects. For instance I am logging request headers to the database and when I query the API I want to query something like:

                                traces | extend properties = customDimensions.req_headers

                                Right now I am getting 0 results with that query. It is possible to click a small "+" button next to my "connection" field of the JSON object which adds exactly the line

                                        As a financial organisation we need to be able to send information securely to Application Insights to within our own virtual network and not via a public IP. Given Application Insights could potentially contain private and/or confidential data which definitely is not desired to be sent outside of our corporations network. So in order or our team to be able to use the functionality of Application Insights it would be great if we could have the functionality send the information via a service endpoint instead of one of the current public ip addresses.

                                        • Enable the creation of Annotations in VSTS linux agents

                                          Adding the release annotation task on a Linux agent throws the following error:

                                          [error]A supported task execution handler was not found. This error usually means the task does not carry an implementation that is compatible with your current operating system. Contact the task author for more details.

                                          Write the release task to support Linux or OS agnostic.
