  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Function To Generate Timeoffset based upon location

    The problem with timezone conversion is that one has to account for the variable nature of Daylight Savings time, etc.

    However, generating an offset is difficult (to display in local NY time, for example, one who have to know whether or not it is Daylight or Standard time at the time of the query.

    The idea here, is to provide an offset, based upon major city (I.e., such as when setting up a PC) or a regional identifier.

    Hence one could write

    timestamp + regionalOffset( "Los Angeles" )

    There may be the necessity of also querying a "region" list

  8. Deletion of old data/data that was acquired during the testing of app insights integration into the application

    Allow deletion of old data via Azure portal--We have accumulated a lot of junk data that was generated while we were testing application insights for our application.

    Thanks for reaching out to us and sharing your feedback request. Currently Application Insights have variable retention policy in preview which would allow you to shorten the retention policy less than the default of 90 days. If you see that the retention policy is not catering your needs please reach out to us with additional information on your scenario. Thank you

  10. Provide option to unescape urls.

    When presented with a URL such as the one below as shown in the Command box of the end-to-end transactions windows, my eyes bleed. It would be a kindness if you could provide an 'unescape' check box to turn this into something a little more intelligible...

    https://xxxxxxx.table.core.windows.net:443/ConsolidatedPositionsByIdAndTime?$filter=%28PartitionKey%20eq%20%27B4%3AE6%3A2D%3ADD%3AAF%3AA3%27%29%20and%20%28%28RowKey%20ge%20%27-2518454905456040119%27%29%20and%20%28RowKey%20le%20%27-2518467001456040119%27%29%29&$top=1000

  13. Can you Guys please make instance titles on application map to show whole name and not like veryLong....ame

    Can you Guys please make instance titles on application map to show whole name and not veryLong....ame, as having titles shown this way makes diagram completely unreadable.

  15. Add support to configure applicationInsight.config file setting from portal

    It will be great to manage applicationInsight.config from portal , just like web.config appSettings , connectionStrings etc.

    These settings can override the file if present ( same as web.config)

  17. Allow Combining of Individual Nodes in User Flow Diagrams

    Currently, if you have multiple pages that have the same root, but with different parameters, there is no way to collapse these into a singular category for analysis. There is already a grouping called other, so there is clearly the capability for doing grouped node analysis, and it would be great to see this extended to allow users to create their own groups. I would recommend allowing users to right-click on any node and offer options to combine it with any other node or existing node combination/grouping. This would solve the problem of logging pages with different queries (for example…

  18. 10K record limit in Analytics.

    I am collecting Analytics data by using Continuous Export. The problem I am running into is the 10K record limit in Analytics to run queries against. I need to be able to query at least a months worth at a time.
    Do you have tools other than Analytics to work with larger files? Is there a tool that can parse the log files better?

    Could we get some more information about what exactly the request is here?

    The 10,000 row limit only applies to the amount of data returned by a query – the query still runs over the entire dataset within App Insights. There’s usually some data aggregation that you are looking for, not the raw data itself, and for that you can be using operators. If it’s looking through distinct values or counts thereof, there’s the summarize operator; if it’s filtering down to a particular value of a particular field – there’s “where”; etc. Do note that all these aggregations, filters, etc work across as big a dataset as you throw at them: it is only the final result set where you’re limited to the 10k rows.

    If this doesn’t help with your query let us know more specifics as to what you are trying to achieve.

    Cheers,
    Morgan

  19. Run queries with F5 key

    As a Visual Studio developer and SSMS user, I'm used to press F5 to build/run queries. However, this often refreshes the site - losing my query in Application Insights.

    F5 should run the query.

    Alternatively, you should prompt the user if they want to save their query before leaving the page.
