  1. 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.

  4. Push notifications for Smart Detection alerts

    The email is usually a low priority tool. When there is a critical problem, I notice it too late (when I take the cell to check the email). I usually recive thousands of emails every day, however, push notifications are much less common and more visible.

  5. Support Authenticated User id in usage scenarios

    Support Authenticated User id in usage scenarios . For retention currently we are showing retention users value wrt user_Id column. It would be good if we can support user_AuthenticatedId. Similarly for other usage blade like users, session, workbook, funnel etc.

    Counting by authenticated users is supported in the Users, Sessions, Events, and Cohorts tools. The Retention tool doesn’t support authenticated user counting, but the “N-period retention” workbook template does…check it out in the Workbooks tool. Counting authenticated users is on the backlog for the Funnels tool, but no ETA on when it will arrive.

  6. Application Insights: Added Aggregation Type "Median" to Metric Charts

    For Metric Charts there are options Sum, Min, Max, Avg.

    An additional option Median would be often helpful because it is resistant against outliers.

    (The median is the number separating the higher half of values from the lower half.)

  7. 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.

  8. Add a public library of common used analytics queries

    While some applications have specific requirements, a lot of reports that come out of analystics must be pretty common. It would be nice to have an área in which to find common queries already optimized and 'verified' by the community and/or Microsoft itself.
    Queries like: "between two dates, which are the pages that had most time consumption difference"

  9. Application Insights service tags for NSGs

    Azure Monitor has a service tag that can be applied to an NSG - does the Application Insights webtest ips fall into this range? If not, can you add those? Its tedious updating IP list every time.

  10. Add support for Azure Monitor Service Tag Availability Tests

    Currently, Application Insights is part of Azure Monitor. However, Availability tests and other Application Insights are not included in the Azure Monitor service tag, so administrators must instead currently use the IP addresses listed at: For now, the only way to address this would be using the IPs at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/app/ip-addresses and subscribing to the RSS feed: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/commits/master/articles/azure-monitor/app/ip-addresses.md.atom.

  11. Application insights smart detection - utilise existing action groups

    When editing a rule in "Smart Detection settings", you can only choose between email and webhooks as a notification option.
    It would be nice to utilise existing action groups configured within Azure monitor.

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Integration with action groups will become supported for the “Failure Anomalies” detection rule in the coming weeks, as part of the transition from classic alerts (more info here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/monitoring-classic-retirement).

    Action groups support for the other Smart Detection rules is also in our backlog, but there’s no ETA for this yet.

  13. open query in new tab of existing analytics window

    rather than opening a new analytics window each time i hit the analytics button, it would be cleaner to open a new tab, if the window is already open...
