  1. Export Saved Queries

    It would be nice to be able to export somehow my Saved and Shared Kusto queries - and be able to reuse them in another Application Insights instance

  2. 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.

  3. Ability to move objects in application map

    The application map gives a great overview of the current set up of an application and it's health. Sometimes however the creation of this map fails a little and some elements go on top of communication lines or other elements.

    It would be great if we were able to drag the elements in application map around with our mouse to reposition them.

  4. 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…

  5. Ability to set cloud role name with codeless solutions

    SychevIgor has requested the ability to set cloud role name with codeless solutions:
    https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/48326

    This is something that we've discussed in the past here:

  6. 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.

  7. Codeless Agent Integration - Allow override for "already instrumented" checks

    Allow override for "already instrumented" checks

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/app/azure-web-apps#troubleshooting

    I have applications that have the "System.Net.Http" and "Microsoft.Azure.EventHubs" assemblies loaded, which depend on the "System.Diagnostics.DiagnosticSource" assembly. When this assembly is loaded, Application Insights codeless integration for App Service doesn't work. This is due to a check for the Diagnostics assembly. Please allow an override to allow AI to start without checking for this assembly - when I do manage to get it to load, it works fine.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Move Region while retaining log history

    As more regions become available for application insights, it would be nice to move region of application insight resource while retaining the log history.

  13. Link to Failures with current selection and filters

    It would be incredibly useful to be able to link to the Failures tab with the filters as they are.

    Currently it is just a link to /ApplicationInsightsResourceName/failures

  14. deep link from Live Metrics Stream detail item into Analytics query or Failures

    It would be great to have deep linking on the Live Metrics Stream page. When you click on one of the items in the "Sample Telemetry" list it shows a summary detail of the selected item. This is typically not enough to start a triage session of the issue.
    It would be very helpful if you could deep link directly into an analytics query or Failures with the selected item as the starting point for the triage session.

  15. 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

    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

  18. Sort sample operations by duration

    Currently sample operations are only sorted by Relevance or Date. I often want to investigate long running operations. But since I can't order them by Duration I have to manually scroll through and pick these out.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
