  1. 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…

  2. Application Insights Availability multi-step web test format

    Hi,

    right now, the only format available for Application Insights Availability multi-step web test is "webtest", which is specific to Visual Studio.
    In order to support more technologies, it should be compatible with other widespread formats (HAR, Selenium, JMeter, ...).

    Cheers

  4. Unable to create Cross Resource Alerts via ARM template

    If you change the query to a Cross Resource query using the template in the document linked below, you get a 400 error with this message.

    I can take the exact same query and make an alert in the portal against the same Application Insights instance without issue.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/monitoring-and-diagnostics/monitor-alerts-unified-log-template

    "error": {
    "code": "properties.search.query is not a valid log or metric query.Response status code does not indicate success: 400 (Bad Request).",
    "message": {
    "lang": "en-US",
    "value": "properties.search.query is not a valid log or metric query.Response status code does not indicate success: 400 (Bad Request)."
    },
    "innererror": {
    "stacktrace": "System.ArgumentException: properties.search.query is…

  6. Alert in Application Insights not working for Failure request metric

    In my Application Insights for my Web APP (dot net WEB API 2):
    I created the alert rule with metrics alert (Failed requests(Platform) - on error code 500 ).
    ![image](https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/21296191/52702036-8c764980-2f8c-11e9-8148-2f0a25a29eb0.png)

    I have many 500 http error response codes in my app I want to alert:

    But they not caught(and alerted) with my condition signal logic (Evaluated based on - period 5 mins, every 1 min):

  7. Add possiblity to query from Log Analytics to fetch all alerts triggered by Application Insight alert rules

    It would be great if there is any table in Log Analytics where all triggered alerts are stored with details so I can use Log Analytics query to fetch what I want and build up custom charts and dashboard fit to business needs

  8. Application insights smart detection - utilise existing action groups

    When editing a rule in "Smart Detection settings", you can only choose between email and webhooks as a notification option.
    It would be nice to utilise existing action groups configured within Azure monitor.

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Integration with action groups will become supported for the “Failure Anomalies” detection rule in the coming weeks, as part of the transition from classic alerts (more info here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/monitoring-classic-retirement).

    Action groups support for the other Smart Detection rules is also in our backlog, but there’s no ETA for this yet.

  9. Allow cloning of existing azure monitor alert rules

    Most of our alert rules are variants/copies of each other: same alert target, same action group, similar search queries, evaluation logic etc.

    It would be great if we could simply clone an existing alert rule (and modify it as needed) instead of creating one from scratch each time.

  11. Display actual time the problem occurred in email body.

    The alert email I receive states:
    When did this happen:
    March 21, 2019 0:00 UTC

    When it actually happened 3/20 8:00 PM - 3/21 7:59 PM.
    If you are going to put the information in the email it should at least be accurate and useful.

  12. Individual check boxes for notifications so we can choose to only alert e.g. contributers in smart detection settings for alerts.

  15. Add support for displaying Scheduled Query Rule-based alerts in resources.azure.com

    As a frequent deployer of resources in Azure, I'd like to see support for showing scheduled query rules in resources.azure.com so that I can ease the authoring of new rules based on existing ones.

  16. Add ARM template support for Azure Monitor Scheduled Query Rule export when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade

    It would be very helpful when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade in the Azure portal if we could export the ARM template for the Scheduled Query Rule that's about to be created, similar to the way we can export the "Automation Script" when creating other resources.

    This would be useful for helping us automated our monitoring in ARM templates as part of our CI/CD process.

  17. Add an option to display alerts in local time

    We've responded to customer requests to display UTC as local time for analytics, but email alerts are still being sent out in UTC (which then has to be converted manually, possibly in the middle of a major incident). There is customer demand for alerts to be sent out in local time (or another selected time zone) instead of UTC.

  18. Azure monitor alert rules should allow importing queries from analytics explorer

    It would be awesome if there was a mechanism to allow importing queries from Analytics Explorer into Azure monitor alert rules.

    Today, while creating these alert rules, we have to copy-paste queries from analytics explorer. This means one has to (potentially) maintain several versions of the same query.

  20. Subscribe/Unsubscribe single email address from group email

    We use group email address in our product in order to get email from azure monitoring alerts to specific teams/goals.
    We found out that if a single person unsubscribe from the email alert sent from app insight the entire group will not be able to receive an alert email.

    I vote for the following enhancements:
    1) Enable single user from group email to subscribe/unsubscribe from a specific alert without affecting the entire emails in the group list
    2) Enable in the azure portal to subscribe/unsubscribe for monitoring alert emails (in addition to the email send from app insight, which can…
