  1. 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.

    • WCF Message Logging

      I have just tried the WCF monitoring with Application Insights and it seems to be very helpful. One thing I'm missing is a feature to log the raw (soap xml) messages, too. Would be great if you could add such a feature.

      • Allow turning off donut graphs in Search details view

        Allow turning off donut graphs in Search details view. I want to look at the graph on top and the details on the bottom at the same time, and the new donut graphs get in the way and there is no way to turn them off.

        • Copy PowerBI query to clipboard instead of file download

          When you export the PowerBI query from the App Insights Analytics site, it downloads the query in a text file, which is very tedious when exporting a lot of queries to the PowerBI desktop application.

          A simple solution is to remove the file download step and simply copy the query directly to the user's clipboard. (See the Kusto Explorer export to PowerBI feature which does exactly this.)

          This will allow users to easily paste the queries directly into PowerBI.

          • Turn off smart detection by http status code or exception type

            For when the exception has really been handled by the app, but raised back to the client by design. E.g. a web api that returns a 400 Bad Request when post data fails validation.

            Maybe this could be configured for particular route/status code combinations.

                  • Render GANTT charts

                    Adding ability to render GANTT charts to visualize data. This will be extremely helpful to see if there are any race conditions in my code. Can easily identify concurrent requests to a shared resource.

                    • Add optional resource group filter to Live Metrics Stream

                      I would like to narrow my view down to only a single resource group when viewing the Live Metrics Stream. In my case I have similar assets deployed to different resource groups. Seeing them all together is good, but I would also like to see one (resource group's worth) at a time.

                      • Support "Data from Debug Session Telemetry" option for all project types that can send telemetry

                        The option to show the live Telemetry Data from the current or last debug session in Visual Studio is currently explicitly restricted so that it only works for ASP.NET project types with direct AI configuration.

                        It should be made possible to manually enable this VS integration feature for any Visual Studio solution or startable project type that is known to emit AI telemetry events.

                        • C++ SDK for server and desktop applications

                          We'd like to use Application Insights with our native (Win32) server application written in C++, as well as our Win32 desktop application (C++).

                          Without C++ support we can't build a full stack solution based on Application Insights.

                          • Allow auto-simplification "Others" group on dashboard pinned charts to be hidden.

                            Depending on the data being charted the auto-aggregated "Others" group can sometimes be the largest value and overwhelm the other data points in the chart.

                            For these cases it would be useful to be able to disable showing the Others group chart lines.

                            • Preserve Time Range

                              When browsing around charts on Azure, they all seem to default to 24-hour time range. I almost always want a 30 minute time range because I'm usually looking at charts when I am trying to diagnose an issue. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Azure remembers this setting and it seems to be stored separately per blade so I find myself spending a lot of time just switching the granularity.

                              Ideally, Azure would apply some machine learning and magically figure out what I want and adjust the defaults accordingly. More realistically, I would like to be able to setup a site-wide…

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • OMS Application Insights Connector ARM Template

                                    I was able to create an ARM template to create an OMS work space with a solution for Application Insights Connector. I would like to extend it by adding an array of Application Insights Resource names. That way once the template is deployed, the Application Insight resources are automatically configured in the Application Insights connector OMS solution.

                                    • Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

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

                                      • Add method for converting UTC time to a local time zone

                                        It would be great if we could do something like this...

                                        | extend localtimestamp = tolocaltime(timestamp, "Eastern Standard Time")
                                        | summarize Count = count(whatever) by bin(localtimestamp, 24h)

                                        • 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.
