  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…

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which 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.

  2. Url for time spans and other filtering

    It would be great if it were possible to drill into a particular time range for any of the analytis pages, and then generate a URL to be able to send to someone else ( or yourself ) which will take you back to that appropriate timespan (and/or any other filters you have in place ).

    Or alternatively be able to save these filters as sharable and just have the timespan as a url parameter.

  3. Make Smart Detection customizable/configurable

    Our team would like to filter out/ stop Smart Detection of certain requests. We regularly get emails for "Abnormal rise in failure request rates", and would like to be able to exclude requests that have certain parameters from this smart detection (for example, if the request has a certain parameter in the URL or a specific header, don't count it towards the alert).

  5. 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.

  6. Profiler support for .Net Core Azure Functions

    I would like to be able to profile a .Net Core Azure Function such that I can see a breakdown of how long each method invocation takes within the call stack so I can optimise any bottlenecks.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. I'd like to filter Insights by tag (assigned to my applications) instead of Roles

    I'd like to filter Insights in Performance and Failures by tag (assigned to my applications) instead of Roles (by default there is All) and selecting each application I want

  10. Add Grouping By Resource Types

    It would be useful to have an ability to group by resource types on Application Map: Azure Web Apps, SQL Servers, Storages and etc. We have multitenant application and by having this ability it will be much easier to collect average metrics.

  12. user flow that can be configured by a custom Property (rather than session or operation)

    Currently User flow can "group" the flow of calls based on session or operation. But there are specific scenarios (Like a REST API) where continuity is not based on operations or session. But some custom property we inject in the CustomEvents (it can be either a custom SessionId that is sent by the client code or CustomUserId)

  13. Show retrieved http status code for url ping tests

    For URL Ping tests, we can configure a specific URL ping test as failure based on the retrieved http status code but we are not seeing the http status code being captured as a dedicated metric. It would be helpful if http status code is captured and available as a dedicated metric so that we can build specific dashboards for visualizing the http status code of the URLs that are monitored via URL Ping test.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Have a way to send test notification for Smart Detection

    It would be nice to be able to send some sort of test notification to make sure the Monitoring Reader / Contributor roles are defined correctly to receive notices. This would especially be useful when those roles are moved to another user, and you want to verify that they're set correctly.

  18. Disable & Enable Application Insights as Needed

    Need an option to Disable a specific instance of Application Insights and Azure Monitor during a planned Maintenance Window and then the ability to re-enable it when needed. Could not find such an option on the Azure Portal. Currently it is only possible to stop telemetry by changing the web.config file of the app but nothing on the server side on the Application Insights instance.

  19. Include user's browser time-zone in the session information

    This would help:
    * make informed decisions about DevOps (deployments, hotfixes etc).
    * make informed decisions about prioritizing time-zone-related functionalities.

    Implementation

    Notably, this should be reporting the timezone's tz database id, which is supported by modern browsers under Intl.DateTimeFormat().resolvedOptions().timeZone (see [this link](https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6939685/get-client-time-zone-from-browser)).

    If needed to support older browsers like IE11, could just report offset from new Date().getTimezoneOffset().
