  1. Add outbound ports to app insights.

    App services have an insanely low number of available outbound ports (~160). Past that things start to slow down and time out. Yet there is little to no information on the port usage. This would be invaluable for troubleshooting connection timeouts, keep-alive strategies, etc.

  2. Allow query results to be formatted and emailed periodically

    I should be able to provide a query, specify it's run frequency/trigger, map it's results to a template and email that out to a specific email address.

    Currently you redirect us to azure functions but that places the burden on end users. Reporting should be a core feature of AppInsights.

  3. Application Map not working for WebApp

    Turned out that Application Map doesn't work for WebApp. Would be nice to specify it on the site, so that we wouldn't have to spend time trying to make it work. Do we know when it will be supported?

  4. Results sorted by timestamp value in descending value; most recent to oldest by default

    By default the results should be ordered by most recent timestamp to oldest.

  5. Add support for SQL in analytics queries

    I have been trying to use the azure analytics custom query language (does it even have a name?) for months and have found it annoying to learn, limiting to apply, and inconsistent with other well developed data query languages such as TSQL.

    Why don't you just allow SQL to query the results database? Since back-end developers often know SQL anyway, it would be a much smaller step to dive into the analytics portal, and could open many possibilities for more powerful and flexible queries.

  6. Download schema definition from the UI

    Today, we can upload a schema definition in step 3 "Schema definition" of the "Edit data source" screen in Application Insights. Sometimes it would be useful to be able to download the current schema, so we can share it with other people, or perhaps run a find-and-replace operation in it.

    Please add a "download current schema" button, either in "Edit data source" or "Data Sources" page.

  8. Notify of problem when Scheduled Analytics Metric can't be saved

    Failure responses when creating the Scheduled Analytics Metric don’t appear in the UI for me. After a few times trying to create a metric and getting a blank answer without the item saving, I used browser development tools to find out the HTTP response was a 400 (bad request) and had various errors.

    Example 1: trying to save a metric with a name > 32 characters, the UI progress bar displays and quickly goes away, the metric doesn’t save, doesn’t go back to the list of metrics, and just sits there. Investigating the HTTP messages yields the following response: {"Message":"Metric…

  9. Add a "button" to hide/unhide series

    It would be good to be able to hide/unhide series from a chart by clicking on its name in the legend.
    Hiding/unhiding bars in a barchart could be useful too.

  10. allow to choose if 40x range of http repsonses is really a failure/error.

    Currently our application insights dashboard thinks all 40x type http responses are failed requests.

    We run a lot of APIs and a 404 in our case is a valid/correct response.

    I know this is topic is debated across the internet - and there is an argument against returning 404s like we do - however it would be good to be able to configure Application Insights so that we can say what class of https responses are failures/errors.
