  1. 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.

    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.

  2. 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).

  3. ignore specific exceptions

    I keep getting false positives in smart detection, because our WCF services return a custom fault in certain situations. These faults are not failures, but part of normal execution.
    It would be nice if we could tell SmartDetection to ignore specific faults/exceptions.

  4. Add Date-Time Range for Smart Detection Failure Anomalies Analysis Page

    When looking at the failure anomalies page, it would be nice to be able to select a date/time range. We've noticed a trend in a specific failure over time, but when looking at the failure anomalies analysis page, we can only see data for the last 12 hours. Being able to go back days or months would allow us to visualize a trend in this request that keeps failing, without losing the Detection Analysis summaries.

    Thanks for reaching out to us. Currently both Failure anomalies and Smart Detection features have Time range in the UI based on which the graphs change, Are you referring that feature is not catering your needs. If so, could you please explain you scenario so that we can take your feedback and prioritize with our existing Feature backlog accordingly.

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

    Individual check boxes for notifications so we can choose to only alert e.g. contributers in smart detection settings for alerts Now there is only one check box that notifies subscription owners, contributors and readers.

  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. Smart Detection to provide more details into .NET processes

    We have a WebAPI2 project that is spawning memory & CPU warnings - SmartDetection shows the metrics and when they occurred.

    However, there's no actionable details - like which .NET objects are consuming memory, or what API calls are generating CPU utilization.

  14. Define maintenance time period for Smart Detection

    We have a daily maintenance period to restart web pools (2:00am-2:05am), so during the warmup periods we are getting false positives in Smart Detection and a lot of email alerts. It would be very helpful to define a time period for pausing the Smart Detection per Application.

  15. Let us remove Smart Detection items or filter out localhost requests

    I'd like to be able to remove items from Smart Detection I have investigated and/or solved. Also, I need to filter out localhost as development on localhost skews response times

  16. Add additional email recipient for alerts and apply it to all alerts

    At the moment if you want to add an additional recipient to the alerts you have to manually edit all alerts. A setting can be added to apply a list of email recipients to all alerts.

  17. Send Smart Detection emails in a more timely manner

    Smart detection emailed me for a brief duration problem, but I did not receive the email until over three hours after the end of the detection.

  18. Use deep links in Smart Detection emails

    Received an email today from Smart Detection, but the "see analysis of the issue" and "configure" links just go to my Azure portal main page. I am already logged in to Azure in that browser. So if these are deep links they are not working for some reason.

  19. Would like the ability to display dates in clients time zone in smart detections.

    Currently smart detection shows dates in UTC. We would like the ability to set the time zone for display purposes only.. or use timezone based on the client browsers time zone

  20. Make "New Work Item" send to a webhook

    As we use Target Process rather than Github or VSTS I would like a new work item to send to something we control so we can generate work items
