  1. Add support for viewing raw body requests

    It would be great to see raw body request on analytics. Good for monitoring restful api calls (for example json payloads)

  2. Variable data retention (longer or shorter than the 90-day default)

    Please provide longer retention for raw data. I'm willing to pay for (the additional azure storage)!

    We are still taking requests for onboarding to the preview of Application Insights variable retention. Some features required to enable this via self-service are taking longer than expected, but we are still working it, and in the meantime will be glad to enable your Application Insights resource to have different retention settings.

    The first iteration of this feature will allow setting retention up to 2 years in several increments for each Application Insights resource (e.g. not by data type). The pricing for this will follow the same Azure Monitor log data retention pricing as used by Log Analytics.

    We will be able to onboard a limited number of customers manually in the coming weeks. If you’re interested, please send me (dalek@microsoft.com) the instrumentation key(s) of your Application Insights resource(s), and the desired retention duration (30, 60, 120, 180, 270, 365, 550 or 730 days).

    Thank you
    Dale Koetke

  3. Add support for Intranet application testing (not just via Internet). E.g., via NTLM

    App Insights works great for externally-facing applications. Would like the same rich experience for Internal/Intranet applications.

    With the release of Azure Functions 2.0, the previously posted template no longer works.

    However, we recognize the need for this request, and are actively scoping and prioritizing the work needed to make it happen.

    I am very interested in speaking with anyone who needs this feature to learn more about your scenarios, particularly any information around cost issues. If you would like to help me scope this feature, please reach out: mogrobin@microsoft.com.

  4. Add support for Redis (via StackExchange.Redis) for dependency monitoring.

    We already have great support for SQL and HTTP dependency monitoring and I think adding Redis would be a great addition. A good start would be monitoring through the StackExchange.Redis library.

  5. server response time needs to ignore signalr

    The average response time metric is not very useful if it is counting signalr persistent connections. I can't filter out these requests in the default dashboard graphs and it's a pain to filter it out in every single graph I create. There needs to be a way to ignore certain patterns from being tracked.

  6. 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.

  7. Add ARM template support for continuous export

    We can configure continuous export through PowerShell, but there is no way to do this through ARM templates currently. This would be very helpful.

    I use ARM templates to declare the desired state of my resource group. Every time I have to augment ARM templates with PowerShell commands, it gets much harder to deploy and test my deployment pipeline.

  8. Track SignalR traffic

    Right now, SignalR and WebSockets messages are invisible to AI. Worse yet, they count as a really long HTTP request. It would be nice to have a separate diagram in the Live Metrics Stream blade and everywhere else where successful or failed request are being displayed.

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. Could you please share about your scenario which would help us to better understand the scope. We do have other feedback request from customers to ignore few parts with in SignalTraffic . https://feedback.azure.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/8395065-server-response-time-needs-to-ignore-signalr#{toggle_previous_statuses}.

    So want to better understand the two requirements and prioritize it accordingly with our existing feature backlog. Please share additional details on your scenario. Thank you

  9. set color legend

    Render AI Analytic query chart with custom colors. For example, would like to render a red bar for failed requests and green bar for successful requests.

  11. Enable collecting POST parameters by configuration

    When an exception happens and the details are captured on Application insight, it would be great if POST parameters were available as well.
    This feature can be turned off for certain pages via configuration r even posting an extra parameter like Ignore Post Parameters.
    This will make sure sensitive application data like login information is not captured.
    This feature can only work when a http POST ends up with a 500 error to assist debugging application, to make sure huge data is not captured and never used.

    There are natural PII concerns in auto-collecting POST parameters, and it’s something, as Dan mentioned, you can do yourself with telemetry initializer. That said, please keep upvoting so we can see how many folks are impacted by not having a more streamlined way of collecting POST parameters.

  12. Add IIS logs Application Insights

    Allow App Insights to capture the IIS logs from the webservers. This would be very helpful when debugging on prem servers.

    We are working with the WAD2AI owners to see if IIS logs can be ingested that way, given that WAD already supports IIS log collection.

    Can you please clarify what are you looking to get out of the IIS logs? Most of the information in there is already available from the requests metadata we collect with AI.

  13. Where multiple app services send their telemetry to a single application insights instance, allow configuration of alerts at the app level.

    At the moment app insights alerts such a server exceptions do not differentiate which app service threw the exception if there are multiple app services talking to the same instance.

  18. Add ability to clear telemetry in Live Metrics Stream

    Currently you cannot clear the telemetry of a Live Metrics Stream.

    A common use case is to open Live Metrics Stream and add filters to only display failed requests, dependencies, and exceptions.

    Without being able to clear the existing list of telemetry, it is very difficult to use the live stream as a dashboard on a TV or even on your PC to quickly identify problems in production.

    If the list was cleared, you would immediately know when an error occurred since the list is on longer empty. Once you've analyzed the issue, you could clear the telemetry again and…

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  19. save selected columns in the query url

    each time we open our saved queries we need to filter the columns again the to see only the relevant columns we need

  20. There is a delay of time for Application Insights Log Analytics data to appear in my dashboard

    My application will push logs to Appln Insights. When I search for the same log entries it wont appear immediately. It will show up after some delay of 3-5 mins. This issue is a show stopper for me. Please let me know the resolution.
