  2. Add ability to see related telemetry for dependency calls

    We can see related telemetry for requests and exceptions. Allow us to see this for dependecy calls as well. This would make it much easier to investigate slow or failed dependency calls.

  3. 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…

  4. Ability to set cloud role name with codeless solutions

    SychevIgor has requested the ability to set cloud role name with codeless solutions:
    https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/48326

    This is something that we've discussed in the past here:

    Thanks for your feedback and its 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.

  5. Url for time spans and other filtering

    It would be great if it were possible to drill into a particular time range for any of the analytis pages, and then generate a URL to be able to send to someone else ( or yourself ) which will take you back to that appropriate timespan (and/or any other filters you have in place ).

    Or alternatively be able to save these filters as sharable and just have the timespan as a url parameter.

  6. 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.

  7. Enable more cohort analysis tools in Application Insights

    We are using AI for assessing the usage of features using custom events, but better ways of seeing changes in usage over time within Application Insights queries would be beneficial (new chart types and cohort groupings)

  8. End-to-end transaction view for arbitrary operation IDs

    Instead of only being able to open the end-to-end transaction view for a operations that failed, from the failures blade, be able to open the view directly and enter the operation ID you wish to view.

    This would allow us to use the end-to-end transaction view on operations that are not failures but are of interest to the DevOps team. For example, operations found via a custom log query.

  9. 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.

  10. Create Dashboard template for an application in order to create a concrete dashboard for a certain environment

    We would like to build Azure Dashboard by template (not necessarily ARM template) like Grafana is doing.

    We have applications that run in different environments: DEV, INT, PROD
    For every environment we have a separate Application Insights resource where we store our metrics.

    We want to define a dashboard template that defines all charts we want to have for our application. And we want to target this template to a certain Application Insights instance in order to create a environment specific dashboard (i.e. MyApplication Monitoring PROD).

    Beside some pinned standard monitoring charts from the webapp resource (Request overview timeline, total…

  13. Autoscale Web App take into account the number of instances running

    The current feature of auto scaling is on based on one metric like CPU or memory.

    I would like to have a matrix with 2 metrics in it. CPU or Memory along with the number of instances running at that moment.

    This will enable me to logical downscale the instances. For example:

    2 -> 1 instances: at < 30% CPU, which results in around 60% CPU on 1 instance

    For
    4 -> 3 instances: at < 45% CPU, which also results in around 60% CPU on 3 instances.

    For now when a day of work starts with 1 instance and…

  14. Support updating the query for a graph.

    After pinning a query w/graph etc. to a dashboard, i can't edit/update the query, in-place. i'm forced to goto analytics, which creates a new query, when modified the only option i have is to pin the new query to my dashboard. then edit the title of the new graph, delete the old one and rework the layout.
    would be really great if i could simply edit/update the query associated with an already pinned graph.

  15. Allow grids to be pinned to the dashboard

    Currently, you can pin charts (either built-in or ones created in Metrics Explorer) to a portal Dashboard. However, pinning a grid does not seem to be supported. This would be very useful for data that is grouped around things like the operation name or dependency name.

  16. Filtering the Application Map

    Application Map is a great tool. but it has very few filtering options. We should be able to define our areas of interest to focus on specific services.

  18. Scale Breaks on Y Axis (Or a second Y Axis to display low/high extremes)

    A chart with a large volume of data in a specific category can overshadow the lower values in other categories that are still meaningful to vizualise on the chart.

    Having the ability to Scale Break (as in PowerBI), or render the lower values on a secondary Y axis would be extremely useful.

  19. FrontDoors causing a big drain on Application Insights

    I've enabled Front Doors on my Web App with AppInsights enabled and noticed a huge increase in data ingested - possibly due to heartbeat queries from FD service. There should exist an option to discard / sample the same traffic, or deduplicate it somehow? I can't use app insights with azure front doors due to pricing consequences it creates, and I'll probably need to drop this in favor of front doors if this cant be helped

  20. Set an alert threshold from a live metrics stream graph

    While watching a live metrics stream, i noticed that i had a high error rate. It would be nice if there was a way to from a graph create an alert if the thing plotted crossed some threshold (failures per second was what i was looking at when i had this thought)
