Welcome to the Azure Application Insights UserVoice site. This site is for suggestions and ideas for all aspects of Application Insights such as our SDKs, Web tests, Analytics, etc. We look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Identify and reject duplicate log transmissions

    We experienced occasional duplicate log entries in application insights
    that we were able to trace back to failed transmissions:
    An error occurred while sending the request. | Unable to read data from the transport connection: Connection reset by peer. | Connection reset by peer

    The ServerTelemetryChannel, which we are using, will then store the transmission in the file system and retry after a certain interval. The issue is that the first transmission was also successful and a networking issue happened for some unknown reason afterwards. So the data gets processed twice.

    To prevent this, I would propose the following solution:

  2. Add logarithmic scale to charts

    It would be good to have an option to use logarithmic scale on bar and time charts.
    This option may be both available in the UI and in the query language (with a "| render barchart logaritmic" ?)

  3. 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.

  4. unminify - add support for multiple apps

    While hosting multiple frontend apps and deploying them one per app service, in case they share the same folder and filename structure the feature does not work currently if we use a single app insights instance.

    The same folder and filename structure is typical for every frontend framework nowadays.
    Example:
    https://app1.com/js/main.js
    https://app2.com/js/main.js

    In this case the last deployed jsmap files will be the only ones accessible and debugging will become more confusing than helpful.

    Please add support for this as it seems a core functionality that might have been overlooked.

  5. URL of monitor the availability of website

    When we use monitor the availability of website, insert URL on Azure portal. On the other hand, It seems that the syntax of the URL is not checked.
    For example, even if insert "Space" in FQDN of URL, it can be registered to monitor. It is useful to have a function to check the syntax when registering.

    Thank you for the feedback, we will share this feedback to our team and also this 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.

  6. Add support for managed identity endpoints

    Currently request to get MI tokens look like request to localhost/127.0.0.1 endpoint. It could be automatically detected by AI as endpoints are configured in App Service configuration and could be retrieved by AI. Then they can be displayed accordingly.

  7. Data needs to be encrypted even when saved locally on disk when App Insights throttling limits are reached

    Right now, Microsoft does no encrypt data saved locally to disk when Application insights SDK writes to local disk when throttling limits are reached. Please refer to the following section from Microsoft documentation at

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/app/data-retention-privacy

    This needs to be encrypted or alternative solutions provided, we cannot afford to have any data to be un-encrypted at any given point of time on Azure

    Does the SDK create temporary local storage?

    Yes, certain Telemetry Channels will persist data locally if an endpoint cannot be reached. Please review below to see which frameworks and telemetry channels are affected.

    Telemetry channels that utilize local…

  8. Integrate Azure Application Insights Dashboard with Microsoft Teams

    The Azure AI Dashboard is really amazing, we have all our required data available at one place. However, we want the ability to integrate that dashboard on Microsoft Teams, as the data we are aiming to collect is mainly for Product people and we do not want them to login to azure portal time and again to check the stats from application, also, we do not want them to modify anything on the portal. Also we want all the some of the other devs to have access to that data, but we do not want them to mess with the…

  9. Parameterized Kusto Queries via REST API

    Parameterized queries in the Kusto Query Language are a great way to mitigate injection attacks. This is already available in other offerings that support KQL. It would be nice if the Application Insights REST API offered this ability as well.

  10. Dependency tracking for Azure Cosmos DB with TCP mode

    According to the documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/app/asp-net-dependencies#automatically-tracked-dependencies only HTTP calls are tracked as dependency for Azure Cosmos DB and TCP mode is not supported. Please, add support to track dependency calls to Cosmos DB when Direct TCP mode is used.

  11. 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?

  12. Scroll to specific search result in End-to-End Transaction Details

    When doing a search, it is relatively easy to find a specific request, dependency, etc, especially given a url or an Operation ID to search off of.

    However, for complex transaction details which have a huge number of lines, from many different endpoints/operations, going to the very top of the transaction when clicking on a specific search result is a pretty annoying UX.

    It is particularly annoying when the same endpoint/operation is hit multiple times throughout a transaction, and you're interested in a very specific one (for example, when investigating performance, if a certain operation is an outlier, perhaps due…

  14. Ability to set a custom time period with local time daylight saving accounted for

    When setting a custom time in the Portal> App Insights> Search area, the Start Time and End Time are not truly local time with Daylight saving applied.

    Searching between 8am and 8:05am local time should return results for 8am-8:05am local time, however, it actually returns 9am-9:05am as this is daylight saving time.

  17. Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Wcf is recommended in a blog from 2016. This product works well in our testing. It appears to be pre-release

    I am wondering why Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Wcf is not on the Nuget.org source yet. This is causing concerns with our dev team over usage of the libraries in our applications.

  19. Detect abnormal increases in time spent on queues

    If a service is not keeping up with its queue or service is not running this might be shown by messages sitting on queues for longer periods of time. Would this be something that can be monitored

  20. allow to choose if 40x range of http repsonses is really a failure/error.

    Currently our application insights dashboard thinks all 40x type http responses are failed requests.

    We run a lot of APIs and a 404 in our case is a valid/correct response.

    I know this is topic is debated across the internet - and there is an argument against returning 404s like we do - however it would be good to be able to configure Application Insights so that we can say what class of https responses are failures/errors.
