  1. Add support for viewing raw body requests

    It would be great to see raw body request on analytics. Good for monitoring restful api calls (for example json payloads)

  2. Add support for Redis (via StackExchange.Redis) for dependency monitoring.

    We already have great support for SQL and HTTP dependency monitoring and I think adding Redis would be a great addition. A good start would be monitoring through the StackExchange.Redis library.

  3. Add support for Intranet application testing (not just via Internet). E.g., via NTLM

    App Insights works great for externally-facing applications. Would like the same rich experience for Internal/Intranet applications.

    With the release of Azure Functions 2.0, the previously posted template no longer works.

    However, we recognize the need for this request, and are actively scoping and prioritizing the work needed to make it happen.

    I am very interested in speaking with anyone who needs this feature to learn more about your scenarios, particularly any information around cost issues. If you would like to help me scope this feature, please reach out: mogrobin@microsoft.com.

  4. server response time needs to ignore signalr

    The average response time metric is not very useful if it is counting signalr persistent connections. I can't filter out these requests in the default dashboard graphs and it's a pain to filter it out in every single graph I create. There needs to be a way to ignore certain patterns from being tracked.

  5. Enable deploying shared queries via ARM

    We have multiple application insights instances (test, acc, prod) and want to configure them as Infrastructure as Code using ARM templates. It seems to be possible to add alerts to the templates, however I'm not able to add our share queries from our insights analytics to an ARM template. To be able to redeploy and keep track of our queries we want be able to add the developed queries in our ARM templates and deploy them as IAC.

  6. Add ARM template support for continuous export

    We can configure continuous export through PowerShell, but there is no way to do this through ARM templates currently. This would be very helpful.

    I use ARM templates to declare the desired state of my resource group. Every time I have to augment ARM templates with PowerShell commands, it gets much harder to deploy and test my deployment pipeline.

  7. set color legend

    Render AI Analytic query chart with custom colors. For example, would like to render a red bar for failed requests and green bar for successful requests.

  8. Track SignalR traffic

    Right now, SignalR and WebSockets messages are invisible to AI. Worse yet, they count as a really long HTTP request. It would be nice to have a separate diagram in the Live Metrics Stream blade and everywhere else where successful or failed request are being displayed.

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. Could you please share about your scenario which would help us to better understand the scope. We do have other feedback request from customers to ignore few parts with in SignalTraffic . https://feedback.azure.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/8395065-server-response-time-needs-to-ignore-signalr#{toggle_previous_statuses}.

    So want to better understand the two requirements and prioritize it accordingly with our existing feature backlog. Please share additional details on your scenario. Thank you

  9. Allow storage accounts with network acl for App Insights Continuous Export

    Currently when a storage account has the firewall configured, the continuoous export stops working, due it's not supported as described at "https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/app/export-telemetry#analyze"
    This request is to enable support for storage account with network acl in place.

  10. Profiler support for .Net Core Azure Functions

    I would like to be able to profile a .Net Core Azure Function such that I can see a breakdown of how long each method invocation takes within the call stack so I can optimise any bottlenecks.

  11. There is a delay of time for Application Insights Log Analytics data to appear in my dashboard

    My application will push logs to Appln Insights. When I search for the same log entries it wont appear immediately. It will show up after some delay of 3-5 mins. This issue is a show stopper for me. Please let me know the resolution.

  12. Application Map - Export to PNG

    Often the components displayed on the Application Map will extend outside of the visible area. I can take a screenshot if I zoom out, but then it is not legible. Or, I can compose multiple screenshots together as I pan, but that is tedious.

    Suggestion: allow exporting the map as an image.

  13. Azure Dashboard charts are limited to 30 Days

    We want to prepare dashboard which query application insight data for more than 30 days and currently that is not possible. Dashboard custom date selection should fetch application insight data which is beyond 30 days.
    Also, it gets override if you keep the timestamp in query itself.

  14. save my filters in the live metrics stream

    When I filter out SignalR and Dependency 404's, for example, on the Live Metrics Stream, let me save that so I don't have to do it every time I'm monitoring the site.

  15. Enable collecting POST parameters by configuration

    When an exception happens and the details are captured on Application insight, it would be great if POST parameters were available as well.
    This feature can be turned off for certain pages via configuration r even posting an extra parameter like Ignore Post Parameters.
    This will make sure sensitive application data like login information is not captured.
    This feature can only work when a http POST ends up with a 500 error to assist debugging application, to make sure huge data is not captured and never used.

  16. 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…

  17. Allow custom code references in Application Insights multi-step webtests

    Application Insights on Azure lets me upload a .webtest file to monitor application availability. My application is a REST/JSON service, and so my .webtest references a custom ExtractJSONRule derived from the ExtractionRule base class to pick out and check data from the JSON response. I can upload the .webtest file OK, but of course, without the custom C# code for the ExtractJSONRule, it always fails.

    Please provide a mechanism to allow .webtest files which reference one or more custom .cs files for custom ExtractionRule and ValidationRule classes.

  19. 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.

  20. Validate HTTPS connection in URL Ping test

    I found current URL Ping test doesn't validate the HTTPS connection, e.g. if the SSL certificate's subject doesn't match the domain, the URL ping test will still pass. Sometimes if the SSL certificate expires, I'd like the URL Ping test fails so I can get the notification about it, because the end users will get the error when they access the URL with web browser.

    Please Do consider it.

    This is planned for single URL tests (not multi-step tests), for early 2020. We are planning to have two modes:
    a. fail test if SSL negotiation fails
    b. fail test if SSL cert is about to expire

    For (b), what config options would be you be interested in? Fail if cert will expire in 7 days, 30 days, 90 days?
