  2. No easy method to disable, resulting in surplus, unwanted logging data

    Azure Insights 3.0 default settings has too many metrics turned on by default that logs more than 8GB. There is no easier way to turn off some of the metrics that are not essential. Add the ability to easily disable some of the metrics that are not necessary for the default metrics that are logged.

  5. Allow users to change displayed name of resources on the Application Maps

    It would be helpful to be able to assign a display name for the different nodes on the application map.

  6. Combine Operations, Dependency and Exceptions failures

    Combine all the failure categories into one. Right now, I need to click each group to see all my failures (operations, dependency, exceptions).

    I originally had "operation failures" on a dashboard not realizing they were separate. Come to find out, I had a large number of exceptions.

    There should be one single true: FAILURES and then break it down.

  7. Add a view to show the route of API call, from Origin to Completion

    It would be very advantageous to be able to have a map of all API calls that were made from a certain source till completion, to help document and map out which services call each other and which round trips the make.

  8. Add Pie Chart support and Funnel/Retention to Application Dashboard

    Hello, It would be great, if Application Dashboard can support more charts/metrics for Insight. Some examples;

  13. Please add darkmode!!!

    When using Live Metrics the screen becomes white again. While my settings are darkmode.

    Maybe an idea to make Live Metrics darkmode as well. Same as this page. The white hurts my eyes.

  14. Provide better integration with other azure dashboard

    The failure and availability dashboards of Application Insight can be pinned into an already existing azure dashboard (with app service plan cpu & memory data for example). But the problems are that when I travel the timeline in this kind of charts, all of them mark the same momet of time (they are synchronized), but application insight failure and availability charts are not part of that. Also, when I pin a application insight dashboard, it has it's own period and it doesn't follow the fillter applied to the standard monitoring charts (lets say I what to set last 24 hours…

  15. Provide a scale-independent rate aggregation

    It's really frustrating that when charting metrics, the Y axis counts events per division so that changing the visible range (x axis) rescales the Y axis. Can we have a chart type/aggregation that understands rates please? For example if I am logging request events, I want to be able to plot requests/per second regardless of whether I'm looking at the last hours data or the last weeks.

  16. App Insights Metrics can't show custom metrics

    Metrics chart fails with error 'Error retrieving data' when using special characters (parenthesis) in custom dimensions, removing the special character renders the graph. Need the ability to render the graphs using custom characters for dimension values/filters.

  18. Allow access to Live Metric Stream data feed for building custom visualizations

    Allow access to the underlying live metrics stream so I can build realtime visualizations in any such tool (ie, vizceral, d3, etc)

  19. Carry time selection from overview to detail

    When I look at the application insights overview screen, I often change the timeframe from the default of 1 hour to 1, 7, or 30 days. If I then click on one of the areas, such as failures, it always arrives on that page showing 24 hours. It would be great if it would carry my prior selection forward so that the information it displays matches what I was viewing on the overview.
