  1. Application Insights Dynamics monitoring integration/support

    The JavaScript SDK can be used with Dynamics sites, but it isn't a fully integrated experience and things like page load times do not yield the expected results.

    There are community authored wrappers that leverage the App Insights JS SDK and provide additional support but we would like to see a fully supported solution/attach scenario that would allow easy monitoring enablement across all Dynamics pages.

  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. default pills

    Add possibility to save pills (filters) added in Failures (or other places), so that one don't have to add back the same pill each time (in case one always wants to filter out some issues).

    Or perhaps, being able to filter out issues that have happened, for example similar to sentry.io (ignore until happens X times again, ignore for X minutes/hours/days/months), or in a general place where one can add/edit/remove these kinds of rules.

  4. Show Operation and Request/Dependency Ids in Live Metrics Stream

    Knowing the root operation Id and/or request/dependency Ids from Sample Telemetry panel would help a lot to search and identify whole operation timeline and related log records.

  5. 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.

  6. able to send individual test for each instance of the App

    When creating tests for availability, we need to be able to test every Instance of the APP, this way this would really be a reliable watchdog

  7. able to send test request every minute?

    When adding availability tests would be nice to be able to send it every 1 minute instead of every 5 minute

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Omit NTLM handshake 401 responses from Application Insights Failures

    So when requesting any resource that requires windows authentication (username, password, domain) from say a webjob running within an app service, the first 2 responses are 401 setting up the ntlm handshake (nonce, etc). These should not be considered failures. They're cluttering up the reporting with false negatives, as the 3rd part, the actual authenticated request, returns non-401.

  12. Set cloud_roleName in Application Insights

    It's currently hard to distinguish logs in Application insights because requests from different services/deployments all show up with the name "/score". As far as I've seen the only way to identify the service is to use a "startswith" on the "Container Id" customDimension.

    You should therefore set the "cloud_RoleName" field for all logs (requests, exceptions, traces). It should either be set to the service/deployment name, or it should be possible to specify a custom name per deployment (e.g. for allowing us to follow company-wide naming conventions).

    Setting the "cloud_RoleName" also enables other important features in Application Insights, like the Application…

  13. Pause the gathering of data

    To be able to simply pause the collection of data via the portal without the need for removing the SDK's etc. I'm assuming that this would update the sample config to 0 for everything.

  14. Link for upgrading SDK does not match programming language

    The text says 'Your application is instrumented with Application Insights SDK version java:2.4.0. Upgrade to the latest stable SDK to get a live feed of events with details like request url, response code, SQL query, and exception stack.' so it does know that we use java, however the link is to https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Web/2.2.0 whereas it should point to Maven central.

  15. Add support to track SQL Command Text in Application Insigts SDK (2.10)

    As you know before we could track sql command text's with "deprecated" Application Insights Extension v2.65 on App Services which could works same time with Application Insights SDK. But, currently we could not track sql queries in the sql dependency telemetry. Now, application Insights services able to give that feature only with the agent which is installed on the app services. We are requesting that feature into Applciation Insights SDK.

  17. Fix UI to see truncated text in user flows

    If you have long page names, it is impossible to see the full name. This is a simple change request to see the full name; e.g. by a tooltip or allowing more lines of text in the UI element.

  18. 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.

  19. API to get the top most searched terms

    We have a requirement to show popular search terms in the front end.
    It would be helpfull if we can get the top most common search terms record from rest apis or a way query them form application insights

  20. Make Log Analytics query to show the same result set as a standard search in Application Insights

    In Application Insights, when searching and showing a result set, select one result to show details, and (new thing) offer a button to show the same result in Log Analytics. Particular for exceptions, a lot of stuff is hidden in the condensed view, whereas Log Analytics shows all details, inner exceptions and more. Currently, it is very difficult to find the logged message in Application Insights in Log Analytics.
