  1. Ability do embed dashboard to third party applications. E.g. CMS. Including Quick Pulse

    Many of our clients would love to see the amazing reports we can generate in App Insights from with in their web application e.g. CMS. Although it would be possible to build these dashboards manually using the API, it would be much more feasible to just get an embed code for the metrics graphs ans list created in the Azure Portal.
    This should also include the live streaming Quick Pulse.

    • 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.

        • Validate HTTPS connection in URL Ping test

          I found current URL Ping test doesn't validate the HTTPS connection, e.g. if the SSL certificate's subject doesn't match the domain, the URL ping test will still pass. Sometimes if the SSL certificate expires, I'd like the URL Ping test fails so I can get the notification about it, because the end users will get the error when they access the URL with web browser.

          Please Do consider it.

          • The preview-map needs more functionality like filtering on role or operation, as well as grouping/hiding of dependencies

            In large scale deployments with multiple operations, roles and dependencies the current preview-map is rendered useless as long as filtering, grouping and so forth is not enabled. It should for example be possible to select a specific role to view all its sub operations and/or dependencies.

              The new map experience since has been updated with better grouping of dependencies and the ability to click on any component and see the details of the dependencies/and operations in the performance and failure triage experiences, as well as overall KPI in the right side pane (for groups).

              How is this working (or not) for you. We greatly appreciate your feedback and help with improving our product.

              Thanks,

            • Application Insights in North Central US

              We have restrictions that all our disaster recovery resources should be created in "North Central US" region. As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights. Are there any plans on having app insights for North Central US region?

              • integration send alert to third party (azure service bus, event hub, IFTTT, Slack)

                Allow app insight integration with third party (azure service bus, event hub, IFTTT, Slack). Allow sending metrics or alerts on a schedule or on trigger to third party. For example, send alerts to Slack.

                • 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.

                      • 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.

                              • 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

                                • 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.

                                      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)?

                                      • 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.

                                          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.
