  1. 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.

  2. Continuous export to Azure Data Lake Store

    Application Insights should support continuous export to Azure Data Lake Store the same way as support for continuous export to Blob Storage.

    Azure Data Lake Store is the new and "future proof" place to store all raw Big Data that you want to analyze using HD Insights / Azure Data Lake Analytics / Power BI etc.

    Attached is a slide from the "Introducing Data Lake" that shows the difference between Data Lake Store and Blob Storage https://mva.microsoft.com/en-US/training-courses/16910

  3. Export past events in same format as continuous export

    After I turn on continuous export I would like to do a one time pull of event data that occurred before continuous export was enabled. This feature would export the data in the same format provided by continuous export to make it easy to ingest into a downstream reporting system.

  4. Add properties of tracked events from AppCenter to App Insights, with date and time

    On App Center, when I track an event, I can add properties.
    Those are quite limited : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/appcenter/sdk/analytics/xamarin#custom-events but are fine.
    I would love to be able to export them in App Insights, and to be able to create relationship between each properties.

    In other words, properties should be linked to their event and we could known the date and time they have been thrown.

  5. 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.

  6. Application Insight and REST API Solution

    Is there a way Application Insight data that is stored via Stream Analytics to be consumed the same way as using the REST API for Application Insight? Is there source code to stand up the same REST API on a server we host? We need this because we know the data retention is only 90 days for Application Insight.

    Alert sent to user: Fix: Merging of ETL files has failed (0x8007007a) error.

    What should we do now? Does AI recover gracefully or fall into a failed state and require the host to be restarted?

  8. Compress continuous export data using GZip

    It would be great if data could be compressed using GZip while exporting to Blob Storage (either by default, or as an option). It should compress quite well (saving on storage and transfer costs), and if the content-encoding on the blob is then set correctly most tools (and browsers) will be able to decompress the blobs on-the-fly when downloading.

    Also, setting the content-type to "application/x-json-stream" may help integration with other tools.

  9. How to backfill continuous export for a previous date

    During Azure outage on 09/04, continuous export stop exporting data to blob from 10 to 15. However I was still able to see data in app insights.

    I was not able find a way to backfill export between 09/04 10 am to 3pm. Is the function supported? How to do it?
