  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. Redis, Twilio and option to hide profiler from Application map

    Hello I have a few proposals for Application map
    1) I don't see Redis service and Twilio requests on the map
    2) Profiler's not the main works endpoint. I wanted to see some option to hide profiler from Application map

  3. Comply with opentracing

    Hello,

    application insights is great product. However, I fear that you are doing a strategical mistake by not complying with https://opentracing.io/
    Many projects (e.g.: https://github.com/opentracing-contrib/nginx-opentracing) already use opentracing to integrate a capability with APM tools which respects opentracing standards.

  5. Option to show default performance, failures, etc pages in UTC.

    When looking at the basic Application Insights | Failures tab there is no option to show time as UTC rather than local. Since all the raw data logging here and in my other logs is UTC this makes me do a conversion from local to UTC every time I want to to query what was going on near a time range.

    Thanks for your feedback and its 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Raise the 5000 row limit on the Azure Application Insights REST API

    https://dev.applicationinsights.io/apiexplorer/events?appId=DEMOAPP&apiKey=DEMOKEY&eventType=requests&$filter=startswith(request%2Fname%2C%20%27GET%27)%20and%20(request%2FresultCode%20ne%20%27200%27%20or%20request%2Fduration%20gt%20500.0) currently lists 500 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 integrate with SQL, POPWER BI,etc . We usually need to do the operation like parse it inside SQL and do some dynamic nesting-heavy.

  9. Increase the request limit of log analytics API

    Currently, Each AAD user is able to make up to 200 requests per 30 seconds. We need to increase this limit according to our requirement

  10. Show requester's IP Address on failure

    Currently I have thousands of unknown requests being made to the end point "/" on my app, which doesn't exist. I have no idea where this is coming from and I cannot get any information from App Insights to drill into this further.

  11. Provide more detail in the error message when you try to delete an API key unsuccessfully

    When a resource lock is in place and you try to delete an API key, you get a generic "Error: Try again" message - it would be nice if the error message could have indicated it was a resource lock that was preventing the API key from being deleted.

  12. Run Saved Query via API

    We have saved and shared query that gets updated semi-regularly, and gets used in multiple places. Currently we have to change it in flow, UI that calls AppInsights API, and in the shared query. It would be great if we could just call that query in flow and through the API via some id, so we would only need to modify it in one place.

  13. Data Point for custom anayltics solution out of azure portal

    These are below possible data-points which we required from azure API for custom analytic solution

    App services
    - Request Rates
    - Response times
    - Failure rates
    - Pages are most popular at what times of day, and where your users are.
    - Exceptions - Stack trace and related requests.. both server and browser exceptions are reported
    - Page views and load performance
    - Availability statuses

    Can you please let me know using which api we should accomplish

  14. Create an option to embed Application Map in PowerBi dashboard

    It would be nice if it's possible to embed the Application Map in PoweeBi dashboard, and even better if the application map can be consumed through an API call.

  15. Remove the API limit of 500,000 rows / 64 MB of data, or have the API return an error message or an empty dataset

    The current way the API handles the 500,000 row / 64 MB data limit is a problem when querying data from Application Insights into Power BI. As of the moment, no indication is given in Power BI if the API limit is exceeded and partial data is returned. That leaves every Power BI dashboard based on Application Insights unreliable and potentially misleading. If raising the API limit is not an option, then please have Application Insights return an error message or an empty dataset, so it becomes evident for the dashboard manager that the API limit has been exceeded, allowing…

  16. 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.

  17. application insight rest api - allow filter on ingressTimestamp

    Currently the rest api does not allow to do the filter using "le", "ge" etc. IngressTimestamp which is part of CustomDimension item. I guess this is because it is treating ingressTimestamp as string field. It allows for eq operator but does not allow le gt etc. This is useful for pulling the incremental data from the application insight. we cannot rely on the timestamp field because some records are back filled. if we rely on timestamp to do the incremental extract then we miss some records

  18. 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.
