  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Add a priority level for all traced events

    There should be a priority level that indicates the relative priority of the data.
    The priority level of a tracked item should be possible to set on an item by item basis, or by more general declarative rules.

    High priority data should be retained for longer time and care should be taken to make sure no high priority data is lost anywhere.

    Example of use case:
    You might want to mark events when a user change/request a new password longer than a metric of time taken for a storage request.

    Having different retention policies for different telemetry items is a very interesting feature request. Enabling this is fundamentally non-trivial, so please keep upvoting and including the use cases where this is necessary. Please keep in mind that you can today ensure retention longer than 90d by using continuous export to archive subsets of the telemetry to external storages/data warehouses of your choice.

  6. VueJs Support

    Add support for VueJs that supports the entire Analytics feature set. There is an open source one currently, but its pretty basic.

  7. Character encodings supported by Application Insights

    It would be nice if it is clarified which character encoding is supported by Application Insights and SDKs.
    We may want to send telemetry with application logs via LogBack and AI Appender but the log may have multi-bytes local language characters.

  8. 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)?

  10. Track CDN metrics in Application Insights

    I want to collect my telemetry data for my cdn and be able to tell
    - my overall cdn metrics for my app integrated in my solution
    - if I have a gain when enabling cdn
    - where I should leverage cdn

  11. 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.

  12. Let us capture UserAgent and other request headers/params

    I understand you not capturing full UserAgent by default because of concerns of PII.

    But please give some control over this data scrubbing, so we can (at our own risk) let certain fields through.

    An awful lot of our App Insights monitor internal microservices that are only called by other microservices and there are no concerns knowing which microservice and which version. On the contrary, it is incredibly valuable information for debugging.

    We deal with this at the moment by logging custom traces for every request, but this complicates our queries and raises our app insights bill.

  13. AdaptiveSamplingTelemetryProcessor node being added twice to default ApplicationInsights.config

    Whenever I add ApplicationInsights via the nuget packages, the ApplicationInsights.config file contains the AdaptiveSamplingTelemetryProcessor node two times:

    <TelemetryProcessors>
    <Add Type="Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Extensibility.PerfCounterCollector.QuickPulse.QuickPulseTelemetryProcessor, Microsoft.AI.PerfCounterCollector"/>
    <Add Type="Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Extensibility.AutocollectedMetricsExtractor, Microsoft.ApplicationInsights"/>
    <Add Type="Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.WindowsServer.TelemetryChannel.AdaptiveSamplingTelemetryProcessor, Microsoft.AI.ServerTelemetryChannel">
    <MaxTelemetryItemsPerSecond>5</MaxTelemetryItemsPerSecond>
    <ExcludedTypes>Event</ExcludedTypes>
    </Add>
    <Add Type="Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.WindowsServer.TelemetryChannel.AdaptiveSamplingTelemetryProcessor, Microsoft.AI.ServerTelemetryChannel">
    <MaxTelemetryItemsPerSecond>5</MaxTelemetryItemsPerSecond>
    <IncludedTypes>Event</IncludedTypes>
    </Add>
    </TelemetryProcessors>

  14. 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.

  16. JavaScript SDK: Page View analysis is not working at iPhone

    I embedded javascript code as the following documents, not working iPhone only.

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/app-insights-web-track-usage/

    I confirm, don't get in Page View in most of the iPhone.

  17. Support for changing custom performance counter sample interval in Application Insights

    When exploring custom performance counters in Application Insights , the sample interval is by default 1 second, should there be a way to customize this in ApplicationInsights.config?

    Per Sergey’s request:

    Please reactivate GitHub issue and tell us what is your specific scenario why you need the collection interval to be shorter giving other characteristics of Application Insights backend. Assumptions is that you need more than just collection interval change and we need to know what.

  18. Allow specifying Tags in ApplicationInsight.config

    The article at [1] provides guidance on using tags to annotate requests so that we can separate traffic coming from separate environments and such. However, adding tags right now requires explicitly writing an IContextInitializer.

    It would be great if specifying the tags would be available as an option directly from the ApplicationInsights.config file, either by directly providing an element for including the tag data, or by providing a built-in IContextInitializer that read it from the application configuration.

  19. Add support to track SQL Command Text in Application Insigts SDK (2.10)

    As you know before we could track sql command text's with "deprecated" Application Insights Extension v2.65 on App Services which could works same time with Application Insights SDK. But, currently we could not track sql queries in the sql dependency telemetry. Now, application Insights services able to give that feature only with the agent which is installed on the app services. We are requesting that feature into Applciation Insights SDK.

    Thanks for the feedback. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This 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.

  20. Bug in sending events based on XMLHttpRequest.prototype.send

    In Sender.ts, private _xhrSender(payload: string[], isAsync: boolean) method:

    The line var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest(); relies on an existing xhr object may be overriden in some properties.

    For instance, if I override XMLHttpRequest.prototype.send(), I could break the sending flow of events.

    I saw this happen in JIRA (Atalassian) with appInsights.
    This is a functionality issue as well as a security issue.

    The appInsights JS code should obtain the original send() code or save the prototype.send at the start of the code (to at list avoid changes during runtime)
