  1. Show what instances are actually affected

    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.

      • Create REST api for custom tracking i.e. trackEvent, trackView

        Create a REST api which will allow tracking methods to be called via a REST api.

        E.g POST methods for creating custom events https://dev.applicationinsights.io/api/trackevent

        • 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.

              • String comparison within JSON objects

                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
                | where properties.["connection"] == "keep-alive"
                | project timestamp, properties

                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
                | where properties.["connection"] == "keep-alive"
                to my query so I…

                  • Remove Limits such as less than 100 unique values for each property for filtering and group-by

                    We are actively using Application Insights with SharePoint 2013 (On-Premise) to send telemetry data. We are constantly hitting 100 unique value limit. Can this limit be removed or at least increased to 1000.

                      • Support for versioned queries in Analytics Explorer

                        It would be awesome if Analytics Explorer could load queries from source control.

                        Queries saved in Analytics Explorer itself (under "my queries" or "shared queries") are not versioned. Nor is there any rollback facility.

                        • Data Purger role should respect Azure role-based access control (RBAC)

                          We have an AD Group which has been granted Data Purger role through the resource group containing all of our development AI resources.

                          However, it seems like the Purge API does not respect this. Instead, we would need to set explicit permissions for each user on each of the AI resources which is not an option in the management perspective.

                            Introduce a dashboard setting to allow configuring a refresh interval, similar to the concept in Kibana, e.g.

                            https://s33.postimg.cc/4dy7qrbhb/refresh-interval.png

                            At the configured interval, all tiles on a dashboard should refresh their sources and update accordingly

                            • Enable deploying shared queries via ARM

                              We have multiple application insights instances (test, acc, prod) and want to configure them as Infrastructure as Code using ARM templates. It seems to be possible to add alerts to the templates, however I'm not able to add our share queries from our insights analytics to an ARM template. To be able to redeploy and keep track of our queries we want be able to add the developed queries in our ARM templates and deploy them as IAC.

                                When you debug against multiple processes, ApplicationInsights picks a random one to show in the window and shows a yellow dialog "Multiple processes have been debugged. This window only shows data for XXXX"

                                • Add a server filter to the Live Metrics Stream

                                  On the Live Metrics Stream it would be useful to be able to view the metrics for a subset of servers. Currently it is only possible to view all servers together or a single server.

                                  For example, if I had a Virtual Machine Scale Set (VMSS) representing servers hosting an application gateway and another VMSS representing servers hosting back end microservices, I would like to be able to select all gateway servers to view metrics for the combined set of gateway servers.

                                  • Implement support for querying telemetry in SDK's

                                    It would be great if there would be a SDK client which allows of querying data (metrics, events etc) instead of having to make REST API calls.

                                    Even if it might be trivial to make REST calls, from a developer perspective it would be a big improvement to just be able to call a method without having to deal with auth or looking up the call you need to make.

                                    • Enhancing filtering within Performance (preview) within Application Insights

                                      Within the performance preview of application insights there is the ability to provide a search/filter term to your Operation names.
                                      The ability to enhance this filtering such that all of the charts are updated based on the filter. Effectively it could act as a multi select of all the operation names that fall under the filter I have applied. This would in-turn update the graphs to include only the operation names I am interested in

                                      • Can we have line breaks allowed? The query will be more readable that way.

                                        It is really painful to write a query and go to edit it in Kusto. Could you guys allow line breaks.
