  1. Multi-resource Alerts for AppInsights

    For customers that have already created many AppInsight resources having to manually create alerts on each resource is tedious and time consuming. It also doesn't guarantee that the AppInsight Resource Alerts are all configured.

    Need a way to enforce alert uniformity across AppInsight resources. regardless of if they are already existing resources or newly created.

  2. Add BGP Community for api.applicationinsights.io

    Currently, there's no way to route Application Insights traffic over ExpressRoute without enabling routing for the entire region.

    Other services, like Exchange Online and SharePoint Online, have BGP communities set up. There are even BGP communities for SQL, Cosmos DB, and storage. However, one does not exist for Application Insights:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/expressroute/expressroute-routing

    There should be a community specifically for Application Insights, especially if we want to make it the ubiquitous tool for monitoring in the Enterprise.

  3. Extend Application Insights in Canada East region

    We have restrictions that all our non-production resources should be created in "Canada" regions. We deploy them mostly in Canada East because Canada Central is more expensive than CAE and proximity.

    If deploying App Insights in Canada Central, we get charged for bandwith egress to Canada East. As a result, it is problematic to use Application Insights in Canada Central for us.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your 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. 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.

  7. cloud filtering / preprocessing of data

    Currently, you can do data sampling in the cloud to reduce the amount of data ingested/retained.

    It would be useful if you could also specify simple filters to remove data at ingestion time.

    e.g filter by severityLevel, CustomDimensions.CategoryName, applicationVersion.

    We have a number of hard to update clients in the field, that have been poorly configured and are sending too much data.

  8. Application Insights service tags for NSGs

    Azure Monitor has a service tag that can be applied to an NSG - does the Application Insights webtest ips fall into this range? If not, can you add those? Its tedious updating IP list every time.

  9. Allow globally configurable rules for "Successful request" true/false

    There's no way to globally configure some HTTP status codes (e.g. 404 or any other user wants to treat as successful) to be "Successful request" = true.
    Yes, you can workaround this using SDK, but when you use e.g. Azure API Management, there's no way to configure this.
    Because of that Failure blade contains a lot of noise that user needs to filter out every time.

    Please make this globally configurable.

  10. Live Metrics Stream - Live filter (Grep the live traces)

    Can you give me a textbox to type in a bit of text I'm looking for, and the 'Sample Telemetry' flying past is filtered to just show matching items?

    This can give me a super quick verification when I deploy a fix. Currently I have to hunt manually for the telemetry that proves the fix (Or wait many minutes until I can find it with a KQL query)

  11. 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.

  13. Add functionality to remember filters

    Add functionality to remember Sample Telemetry filters in the Live Metrics Stream. My telemetry is junked up with so many "Starting HttpMessageHandler cleanup cycle... Ending HttpMessageHandler cleanup cycle...". Every time I come back to the live stream, I have to re-enter all of the filters just to see useful traces.

  14. Ability to move objects in application map

    The application map gives a great overview of the current set up of an application and it's health. Sometimes however the creation of this map fails a little and some elements go on top of communication lines or other elements.

    It would be great if we were able to drag the elements in application map around with our mouse to reposition them.

  15. 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。

  17. 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.

  18. filter app map based on tag or environment

    App Map as well as metrics can get cluttered with dev/test and even local machine data. While you could use different app insights keys, it would also be helpful to easily tag an environment and then easily filter out an environment on app map and other visualizations

  20. service endpoint

    As a financial organisation we need to be able to send information securely to Application Insights to within our own virtual network and not via a public IP. Given Application Insights could potentially contain private and/or confidential data which definitely is not desired to be sent outside of our corporations network. So in order or our team to be able to use the functionality of Application Insights it would be great if we could have the functionality send the information via a service endpoint instead of one of the current public ip addresses.
