  1. pin user flow to dashboard

    User flows cannot be pinned to a dashboard. Pin button is disabled. I would very much like to add that to a dashboard.

  2. Add Clarity on the Performance Testing, Is IT also deprecated along with DevOps?

    It's unclear if Application Insights performance tests are the same or will also be deprecated along with DevOps Web Tests/Load Testing.

    The performance testing shows up as "preview" which makes it look like it may be a new feature coming but not something that will be deprecated and thus a waste of time to look at.

  3. Allow Instrumentation Key Regeneration

    In order to be able to recover from an exposure through the JS SDK, it would be necessary to be able to regenerate the instrumentation key

  4. Add support for viewing RU consumption in Cosmos DB operations

    To balance performance with cost optimisation it would be great to see how throughput it affecting or constraining performance with in inadequate RU consumption.

  5. performance filter should be like search filter with picker for custom dimensions

    The Performance and Failures blades filtering should be like the fancy one from the Search blade. I don't like having to manually enter the custom dimensions and values rather than just picking. More so, I'd like to be able to save the filters (globally) and use on any blade (voted for other feature request). The filters still don't carry into the "View in Analytics" (other bug).

  6. Allow me to rename the resources shown in the Application Map

    It would be great if I could customize the Application Map resources and name them based on business context labels... not the resource type, but the resource name

  7. Allow users to filter application map to exclude HTTP 404 errors

    The application map often shows red if there are lots of 404s in the app. However, most of the time, these are crawlers/bots hitting random pages on the site. It would be nice to have the option to exclude these on this page. We can filter them out in the Failures chart, but not the application map.

  9. Mayor informacion de los errores detectados en Live Metrics Stream

    En el Live Metrics Stream se proporciona información sobre los errores detectados en tiempo real, sin embargo al hacer clic sobre ellos, la información es muy poca, sería muy interesante que se muestre mayor información acerca del error o haya un link que te lleve directamente al modulo de errores para poder saber de que trata a quien afecto.

  10. Add performance of the measurements as a result just like availability in the new view.

    In the new view I miss the average time/duration of the measurements. In the Old view it was there. Please put this option back so i don't have to switch to the old view to recieve that data.

  11. Provide link from App Insights Analytics results back to explore the items in App Insights

    The Application Insights blades are great for exploring failures/exceptions, seeing what happened in the user session to diagnose issues etc. Often though we have to write specific queries using Analytics. It would be great to be able to open any items (Exception, Custom Event, Dependency, Page View etc) back in App Insights so that the complete session can be navigated and troubleshooting conducted. The current process is that you write specific reports that return the items that you need to look into further, and then manually take the session id (or other identifying value) and go back to Application Insights…

  13. Consolidate Settings

    Consolidate the various places where one cat set the instrumentation key. I just found that my app had two different keys:

    APPINSIGHTS_INSTRUMENTATIONKEY
    ApplicationInsights:InstrumentationKey

    One set by the portal, which I think is for the debugger, snapshots, more integrated solutions and the other one is set by me or VS at install into the app. This is the one that I would typically use to embed for JS and (in some cases) manually at startup for the app.

    There's also the config file, it seems (I don;t use that). There should be one place to ensure that the correct key is…

  14. Bring back favorites for search (including pinning to dashboard)

    We used "Search" to create multiple filtered queries and pinned them to the dashboard. Since several week it is not possible to edit favorites or to create new favorites. Pinning filtered queries is no more possible.
    Please, bring back this feature

  16. Have the ability to display metrics associated with requests/dependencies onto the Application map

    I am adding some of our own metrics to the requests and dependencies for our application. i.e. Things like num deals booked, KiB processed etc...

    It would be very cool to see these on the application map, perhaps floating nearby the associated components/links.

    This would probably need to be configurable to avoid information overflow.

  17. Scale Breaks on Y Axis (Or a second Y Axis to display low/high extremes)

    A chart with a large volume of data in a specific category can overshadow the lower values in other categories that are still meaningful to vizualise on the chart.

    Having the ability to Scale Break (as in PowerBI), or render the lower values on a secondary Y axis would be extremely useful.

  18. Usage Blades (Users, Sessions, Events, etc., etc.) usable across App Insights Resources

    Even though I can create Analytics queries across multiple AI resources, I do not have a way to view information across AI resources in a view like the blades in the Usage section. I would really, really like to be able to use these blades across AI resources, not unlike the way that the Transaction view automatically spans AI resources when looking at telemetry.

    Our system is composed of 30+ different ASP.NET applications and one SaaS non-.NET site that users interact with as if it were a single system. We have all pieces of it instrumented with App Insights, each…

  19. Allow multiple work items profiles to create bugs in multiple DevOps projects

    Currently we one can only map "Work Items" to one Project/Area in DevOps. We could set up multiple Work Items profiles to select when creating the bug from Insights

  20. 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…
