  1. Application Insights Application Map should allow print to pdf

    Application Insights Application Map should allow print to pdf. The existing zoom in feature makes it really hard to take screenshots due to the limited space azure browser experience allows. (Alternatively giving us an api to pull the graph nodes so we can generate our own graphics would work as well)

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  2. Add Grouping By Resource Types

    It would be useful to have an ability to group by resource types on Application Map: Azure Web Apps, SQL Servers, Storages and etc. We have multitenant application and by having this ability it will be much easier to collect average metrics.

  3. Show retrieved http status code for url ping tests

    For URL Ping tests, we can configure a specific URL ping test as failure based on the retrieved http status code but we are not seeing the http status code being captured as a dedicated metric. It would be helpful if http status code is captured and available as a dedicated metric so that we can build specific dashboards for visualizing the http status code of the URLs that are monitored via URL Ping test.

  5. Add support to save custom configurations.

    We use live analytics to monitor our long-running background processes. We don't utilise any API calls, and so request based metrics are of no use.

    We manually change a few of the widgets to CustomEvent and Exceptions to monitor, but pinning those changes to the dashboard reverts our custom changes and adds in the Request Count/Duration widgets.

    If we could have the ability to save changes to a stream and then load those changes in when the dashboard item is clicked it would make life a bit easier.

  6. Allow globally configurable rules for "Successful request" true/false

    There's no way to globally configure some HTTP status codes (e.g. 404 or any other user wants to treat as successful) to be "Successful request" = true.
    Yes, you can workaround this using SDK, but when you use e.g. Azure API Management, there's no way to configure this.
    Because of that Failure blade contains a lot of noise that user needs to filter out every time.

    Please make this globally configurable.

  7. Live Metrics Stream - Live filter (Grep the live traces)

    Can you give me a textbox to type in a bit of text I'm looking for, and the 'Sample Telemetry' flying past is filtered to just show matching items?

    This can give me a super quick verification when I deploy a fix. Currently I have to hunt manually for the telemetry that proves the fix (Or wait many minutes until I can find it with a KQL query)

  8. http status code with its name

    On portal azure, specially on application insights failures investigation, allow somehow (using title on hovering elements) to display the name of http status codes and perhaps a link to their specification.

  9. 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.

  10. Application map should not show 127.0.0.1 as a separate server

    Application Map in App Insights today shows calls to 127.0.0.1 as if it were some separate server with multiple servers calling into it. It should instead know that it's the same server and show a loop-back arrow for dependency calls.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  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.
