  1. Add metric namespace property to customMetrics table

    Metric namespace is available to filer by when building a chart on Metrics blade. However, there is no way to query or filter by metric namespace when querying customMetrics table in Log Analytics.

    Is it possible to add metric namespace property to customMetrics table?

  2. pin user flow to dashboard

    User flows cannot be pinned to a dashboard. Pin button is disabled. I would very much like to add that to a dashboard.

  3. 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,

  5. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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)

  11. 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.

  12. Allow manual entering of application insight annotation

    1) Don't limit annotations in Application Insights to just releases

    2) Allow manual entering of application insight annotations in the AI web app, not just from a step in the release process

  13. Add support for Appgateway (or other proxies) in appmap

    The appmap in application insights is great, but end-to-end tracking skips a step when proxies such as AGW, CDN or FrontDoor are not part of the dependency mapping.

  14. 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.

  15. When pinned to Dashboard, allow custom timespan further than 30 days in the past

    In Dashboard, normally the timespan of the tiles is defined at dashboard-level, but this can be overridden on a per-tile basis.

    However, the "from date" does not behave correctly when it's earlier than 1 month from today, even though the UI is correct.

    For example, if today is 26th Feb, and if I set the from date to any date before 27th Jan (e.g. 1st Jan), it will use 27th Jan to perform the query instead.

    This makes the custom timespan useless for many use cases, such as "from the 1st of last month to the end of last month".

  17. Pin a grid "chart" to dashboard

    In the new dashboard Metrics explorer the only chart type that cannot be pinned is a Grid. I had to use the one in Classic Explorer to pin it to my dashboard but it doesn't integrate with the time range settings for the whole dashboard.

  18. Separate 4xx requests from 5xx requests in Live Metrics Stream

    Allow for a filter or another graph to track 401's, 403's, and all other 4xx calls separate from 5xx calls so that we know if we are encountering auth issues or exceptions in Live Metrics Stream.

  19. Scheduled Reports Need to be Integrated

    Being able to setup a function app to do this ok, but this is way to complicated for something that should built into the AI blade.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/automate-custom-reports

    Look at what you can do in Splunk. It is much easier. Let's get App Insights / Log Analytics to be better than that.
