  1. Azure Function Logs -> Live app metrics should display data for that AF only by default

    Currently, if you're looking at an Azure Function's logs and you click on the "live app metrics" link on top you're taken to a (complicated and seemingly impossible to filter) view of ALL currently running app's logs in real time.

    I'm proposing that view to be filtered to show only the currently selected AF's logs by default (and to make it easy to switch to see the metrics in all of the current app's AFs or any other AF within the same app).

    Making it easy to switch to another app would be a plus.

    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. Compact view for end-to-end transaction telemetry items

    It would be nice to have a more compact view for the "View all telemetry" mode of the end-to-end transaction view,
    having everything for a telemetry item in one line to fit more items on the screen without scrolling,
    which would be more suitable for big screens.
    (I added a picture as illustration).

  3. Allow us to disable clients IP, city and Country data collection

    some way of disabling geolocation data collection to met different privacy policies would be nice

  4. Add Log Analytics support for Application Insights telemetry that has been exported to Azure storage

    From what I can tell from reading AI documentation, data that is Continuously Exported to Azure Storage is only accessible in its raw form and cannot be analyzed using the existing Log Analytics and Metrics tools available with Monitor.

    It would be very helpful if these tools could be used with Azure Storage data (specifically telemetry data stored there) so we are not limited to just the data collected in the 730 day maximum retention period.

  5. From End-to-end transaction details a developer should be able to create the request graph, kind of sequence diagram.

    From End-to-end transaction details a developer should be able to create the request graph, kind of sequence diagram. Basically from app insight it should create a dependency grpah and call graph. in the proper sequence the way calls are going.

  6. Include 'Location' header in 3xx responses

    Include 'Location' header in 3xx responses when viewing the request properties (e.g. on the End-to-end transaction view).

  7. Migrate existing data from one instrument key to another

    In order to preserve existing data it would be nice to be able to migrate data from one instrument key to another. We have production data that was being logged to an incorrect key in our production environment. It was being logged under QA and it would be nice to be able to put this existing data in correct bucket of production after it was logged.

  8. Display telemetry custom property value as link

    It would be great if values of custom properties that are urls were displayed as hyperlinks and therefore clickable.

  9. Add ability to filter end-to-end transaction view

    Add the ability to filter in the end-to-end transaction view. The transaction may include a lot of dependencies and other requests in such a way that the view becomes hard to read. It would be nice to be able to exclude dependencies of a certain type, or only show queues for a specific message type, for example. Or maybe exclude calls with duration less than 100ms.

  10. Add support for viewing funnels by total events count. Currently its showing count per user.

    Want to view or show funnels for number of occurrence that event or flow has been happened in addition to showing just user count because same user might started the flow again but not completed it again which needs to be tracked.

  11. Carry time selection from overview to detail

    When I look at the application insights overview screen, I often change the timeframe from the default of 1 hour to 1, 7, or 30 days. If I then click on one of the areas, such as failures, it always arrives on that page showing 24 hours. It would be great if it would carry my prior selection forward so that the information it displays matches what I was viewing on the overview.

  12. Integration of Application Insights with Dynamics 365 CRM Online –, Frontend + Backend

    On the client side, we can capture data by integrating AI with JS libraries. AI can log custom metrics like page load time, button click time on the Browser-side. This data is insufficient to monitor full system performance. We want to measure the duration of the entire life cycle of the process. - Frontend + Backend.

    The result we want to achieve in on the server-side as follows.
    “Capturing and viewing page load times & times after save, delete, update button clicks in D365. Sample objects Contacts, Activities, Opportunities, Leads etc.”

    The only method is to transfer trace information to…

  13. Show percentile requests times in application map.

    Have an option to change what percentile of request times are shown between dependencies (right now I think the average i shown).

  14. Available Memory Counter in the Azure Live Metrics Stream

    Unfortunately, there is no counter for Available Memory (Available Mbytes) or memory consumption in the Live Metrics Stream. It would be great to see one of these performance counters added to the Live Metrics Stream.

  15. 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.

  16. Application map diagram should display the full service instance name.

    It's hard to validate the components in the diagram when just a few letters are shown for each service instance. Test, pre-prod og prod instances have almost the same names.

  17. Add metric namespace property to customMetrics table

    Metric namespace is available to filer by when building a chart on Metrics blade. However, there is no way to query or filter by metric namespace when querying customMetrics table in Log Analytics.

    Is it possible to add metric namespace property to customMetrics table?

  19. 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.

  20. Can you add Release annotation icon to Application Insights - Availability graph?

    It would be nice to visualize the release/deploy of new env versions in the availability chart. Similar to performance chart and failures chart.
