Azure Monitor-Application Insights

Welcome to the Azure Application Insights UserVoice site. This site is for suggestions and ideas for all aspects of Application Insights such as our SDKs, Web tests, Analytics, etc. We look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Add BGP Community for api.applicationinsights.io

    Currently, there's no way to route Application Insights traffic over ExpressRoute without enabling routing for the entire region.

    Other services, like Exchange Online and SharePoint Online, have BGP communities set up. There are even BGP communities for SQL, Cosmos DB, and storage. However, one does not exist for Application Insights:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/expressroute/expressroute-routing

    There should be a community specifically for Application Insights, especially if we want to make it the ubiquitous tool for monitoring in the Enterprise.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Remove the API limit of 500,000 rows / 64 MB of data, or have the API return an error message or an empty dataset

    The current way the API handles the 500,000 row / 64 MB data limit is a problem when querying data from Application Insights into Power BI. As of the moment, no indication is given in Power BI if the API limit is exceeded and partial data is returned. That leaves every Power BI dashboard based on Application Insights unreliable and potentially misleading. If raising the API limit is not an option, then please have Application Insights return an error message or an empty dataset, so it becomes evident for the dashboard manager that the API limit has been exceeded, allowing…

  6. Multi-select on Availability Tests

    Availability tests on Application Insights do not have the multi-select option. This means that in a resource with dozens of web tests, to start/stop all of them or a group of them this has to be done one by one.

  7. Using AI in microservice environments (like AKS or SF)

    Today each AI instance allows definition of a daily cap for the whole resource. This is not sufficient for scenarios where lots of services wants to share an AI instance (could be interesting for tracing analysis and so on). A solution could be different instrumentation keys for each service with a specific daily cap to prevent from blocking the whole AI instance by a misconfigured service that flood the instance with lots of messages.
    At the moment we have to use an AI instance for each service or each application running in the environment. For overall service analysis we can…

  8. Simplify configuration of AppInsights in government cloud

    When using AppInsights in the public cloud environment, I hardly need to configure anything in my application beyond the instrumentation key. However, when my AppInsights instance is deployed in Azure Government Cloud (e.g. Fairfax / Azure US Government envirionment) I need to manually configure URLs to up to 3 endpoints, according to this page:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-government/documentation-government-services-monitoringandmanagement#application-insights

    It would be much more convenient if I could simply configure "Environment = AzureUSGovernment" instead of needing to know URLs to 3 endpoints and how to configure them in every relevant language/platform.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Expand User timeline pane

    The User Timeline pane would be so useful, if only there was the ability to expand it! The requests names in it are shortened, and because many different requests start with the same URL, I can't tell them apart unless I hover my mouse over them. That takes much more time than necessary and because of that forces me to search for requests in Logs instead, where I can expand the name column.

  14. Can't see full sql

    We're unable to see SQL passed into database. If it's a proc, we can see the name of the proc, but what we're tying to do is look at failures and continuously improve. That would require full command text, including full sql with paramters.

    The purple color looks really bad for charts. Please change it for transparent (to support white and dark theme) or allow to change it by self.

  18. Provide Access to ResponseHeader Information from WebTests programmatically

    Provide ResponseHeader Information from AvailabilityTests Programmatically. Currently it is available only through the webtest result file.

    Certain key information is present within the headers to identify the test failure patterns.

  19. Daily cap

    Data volume trends” in “usage and estimate” for app insight shows data more than daily cap which we set. Could you please help us to get correct information in daily cap.

    I got information that, due to scale requirements, the daily cap cannot be strictly enforced by the Application Insights ingestion. Each ingestion front-end calculates the current daily total independently and could allow over-the-cap ingestion if the application is sending telemetry from multiple Azure regions or within high-volume regions and user will be billed only for billing/daily cap not for over-the-cap. Still, over cap daily volume trends miss-guide us. Please…

  20. Option to expand the sample telemetry window

    I would we ideal to expand the Sample telemetry window instead of the small windows it is now. Then you can use it just like the tail function in linux for looking at logfiles. This shouldn't be that difficult to implement, but makes a huge difference for us.
