  1. 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…

  3. Set cloud_roleName in Application Insights

    It's currently hard to distinguish logs in Application insights because requests from different services/deployments all show up with the name "/score". As far as I've seen the only way to identify the service is to use a "startswith" on the "Container Id" customDimension.

    You should therefore set the "cloud_RoleName" field for all logs (requests, exceptions, traces). It should either be set to the service/deployment name, or it should be possible to specify a custom name per deployment (e.g. for allowing us to follow company-wide naming conventions).

    Setting the "cloud_RoleName" also enables other important features in Application Insights, like the Application…

  4. Azure Dashboard charts are limited to 30 Days

    We want to prepare dashboard which query application insight data for more than 30 days and currently that is not possible. Dashboard custom date selection should fetch application insight data which is beyond 30 days.
    Also, it gets override if you keep the timestamp in query itself.

  5. Allow for configured downtime

    To be able to provide an expected downtime window so that uptime reported by ping-availability doesn't drop when it is expected due to a planned deployment

  6. 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.

  7. Application insights urls should have short option

    Application insights resources should have an option for a short url link so that it can be added to documentation, integrations, etc.

    Long urls with ids and big paths are not user friendly.

  8. Support for time granularity selected in Azure Portal Dashboard (via bin_auto?)

    When adding / pinning an Application Insights or Log Analytics chart to the dashboard, you can use the global time selector on the Dashboard to adjust both the the time range (e.g. past 1 hour, past 7 days) and the granularity (e.g. auto, 5 minutes, 1 hour, etc)

    However, that works only for the time range, but not for the granularity.

    The reason is that whenever you write a query to render a timechart, you have to hardcode the bin size in the query, e.g.:

    requests | summarize count() by bin(timestamp, 1m)

    Given the query above, I could now choose the…

  10. Return Export ID on Application Insights Continuous Export creation

    Currently, creating a Continuous Export via the API or Go SDK returns a list of all continuous export configurations on success.

    It would be better if it returned only the export configuration just created, or only the Export ID for the configuration just created, so the user knows the Export ID of the new export configuration.

    Please see https://github.com/Azure/azure-sdk-for-go/issues/4745 for more details.

  11. Allow to select all alerts of a smart group (not only visible)

    When viewing an alert smart group there's a possibility to select and edit all alerts at once. The issue is, that the "select all" option only selects the visible alerts of the current page. It doesn't select all alerts of all pages.
    If there are lots of alerts in a smart group it's very painful to iterate through all pages and process the activities for every page.
    It would be very useful to change the behavior of the "select all" option to really select all alerts (including alerts of other pages) or to add further select option to enable the…

  12. 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.

  13. Using AI in microservice environments (like AKS or SF)

    Today each AI instance allows definition of a daily cap for the whole resource. This is not sufficient for scenarios where lots of services wants to share an AI instance (could be interesting for tracing analysis and so on). A solution could be different instrumentation keys for each service with a specific daily cap to prevent from blocking the whole AI instance by a misconfigured service that flood the instance with lots of messages.
    At the moment we have to use an AI instance for each service or each application running in the environment. For overall service analysis we can…

  14. Application Insightsにおける可用性テストについて

    現在、可用性テストに設定できるアラートは「異常時」「復旧時」を
    トリガーとしていますがそれぞれ別にアラートの編集が出来るべきと考えております。

    例えば、異常時をトリガーに自動再起動のRunbookを実行させるという仕組みを入れたとすると
    復旧時にも自動再起動が実行されることになり、無駄な再起動、無駄な通知が発生することになります。

    異常時には異常時のアラート編集を復旧時には復旧時のアラート編集を、それぞれ設定可能にして頂くと助かります。

  16. gelf Graylog format support for streaming logs to Application Insights

    gelf is Graylog Extended Format

    There is an official and widely used logging driver for Docker based on gelf see https://docs.docker.com/config/containers/logging/gelf/

    This idea would enable sending the log output (console output) of a docker container via gelf to Application Insights (log-aggregation) n a direct fashion.

    There exists a custom way to achieve this which is however quite hacky, as blogged at https://lbadri.wordpress.com/2018/03/10/sending-docker-container-logs-to-azure-application-insights-using-gelf-driver/

  17. Raise the 500,000 row limit on the Azure Log Analytics REST API

    https://dev.loganalytics.io/documentation/Using-the-API/Limits currently lists 500,000 as the limit in the number of rows a query can return. It would be helpful if we could raise this limit to make it easier to create PowerBI dashboards which slice and dice historical data, where in aggregate the raw data exceeds 500k rows. In practice this allows the dashboards to look further back in time.

  18. Multi-select on Availability Tests

    Availability tests on Application Insights do not have the multi-select option. This means that in a resource with dozens of web tests, to start/stop all of them or a group of them this has to be done one by one.

  19. deep link from Live Metrics Stream detail item into Analytics query or Failures

    It would be great to have deep linking on the Live Metrics Stream page. When you click on one of the items in the "Sample Telemetry" list it shows a summary detail of the selected item. This is typically not enough to start a triage session of the issue.
    It would be very helpful if you could deep link directly into an analytics query or Failures with the selected item as the starting point for the triage session.

  20. Monitor Scripting

    Enable creation of a script e.g. javascript that is executed for monitoring process. This would enable management of creation of oauth tokens (or whatever else the developer might want to do during monitoring process), multi-step monitoring (without having to utilize the multi-step stuff built into visual studio.
