    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. Support better deep linking to blades

    Right now one can copy the URL in paste it somewhere for others to click on to go immediately to a blade item in Application Insights, such as an exception. However, the link is very long and sometimes when users go straight to the URL it doesn't load correctly the first time. It would be nice if there was a "share" link or something similar where we could get a shorter url and if going straight to the urls loaded correctly the first time.

  3. Show different trace colors based on severity

    On the Search blade, all of the Traces are green, whether or not the level is Informational, Warning, Error, etc. It would be nice if you could change it so that Debug was blue, Informational was green, Warning was yellow, Error was red, etc. to make it easier to distinguish the different levels in the list.

  4. Provide a JDBC or ODBC driver for querying Application Insights

    Application insights is not a dialect of SQL server. However, it is a declarative language, and data is stored in a relatively tabular like function.

    I'd rather query Application Insights from JetBrains DataGrip or another JDBC or ODBC based thick client for SQL. It would take a lot of community involvement to really get the driver up to snuff for any given thick client GUI. However, a driver with rudimentary support for querying would instantly be useful for reporting and ETL type scenarios.

  5. Bring back favorites for search (including pinning to dashboard)

    We used "Search" to create multiple filtered queries and pinned them to the dashboard. Since several week it is not possible to edit favorites or to create new favorites. Pinning filtered queries is no more possible.
    Please, bring back this feature

  6. Time Format in Local Format and 24-hours

    Old Search showed results in my local datetime-format (which is dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm). The new Transaction-Search now showes date in default american-format (which is MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm AM/PM).

    Please change it back because it is quite error-prone to always keep that 12-hour format in mind or maybe give an option to set it somewhere.

  7. Browser back button should return to search result

    The title says it all really, more of a bug imho. Can't tell you the number of times I've pressed te backbutton on my mouse only to loose the search query entered before and having to do it all over again. Seems to be a general issue in the Azure UI.

  9. Scroll to specific search result in End-to-End Transaction Details

    When doing a search, it is relatively easy to find a specific request, dependency, etc, especially given a url or an Operation ID to search off of.

    However, for complex transaction details which have a huge number of lines, from many different endpoints/operations, going to the very top of the transaction when clicking on a specific search result is a pretty annoying UX.

    It is particularly annoying when the same endpoint/operation is hit multiple times throughout a transaction, and you're interested in a very specific one (for example, when investigating performance, if a certain operation is an outlier, perhaps due…

  10. Expose "End-to-end transaction details" to kusto queries

    Whatever query is going on behind the scenes, to populate the "End-to-end transaction details" - Can it please be exposed in the query language?

    I have a list of 60 operation ids I want to find out "whatever is known about" across our dozens of App Insights resources. It would be convenient if I could do this in bulk, in the query language.

  11. 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.

  12. Compact view for end-to-end transaction telemetry items

    It would be nice to have a more compact view for the "View all telemetry" mode of the end-to-end transaction view,
    having everything for a telemetry item in one line to fit more items on the screen without scrolling,
    which would be more suitable for big screens.
    (I added a picture as illustration).

  13. Enable to jump to request from the sample telemetry

    If you are looking at the live metric and see a request which you are interested in looking into, this should allow you to jump to the information of that request

  14. Allow turning off donut graphs in Search details view

    Allow turning off donut graphs in Search details view. I want to look at the graph on top and the details on the bottom at the same time, and the new donut graphs get in the way and there is no way to turn them off.

  15. Uncheck all event types in Diagnostic Search filter

    When I browse all telemetries in Diagnostic Search, I sometimes need to focus just on one Event Type (for example Requests). Now I have to uncheck another Event Types.

    My suggest is add "un/check" box for all telemetries (see attachment)

  17. Export from Transaction Search

    It would be great to have an export function on Transaction Search in Application Insights. Having found the data that I am looking for in the logs using the search filters, it would be great to then be able to download that. Bizarrely, the feature doesn't seem to exist.

    If I click the view in logs function, there is no option there to download the results either.

  19. Turn off showing other additional operations in End-to-end transaction details

    In Failures blade, observed an endpoint with approx 2000 failures in last 24hrs. When I click on the operation name in the table, on the right side a list of operations/calls to that end point are listed. When I click on an operation, the end-to-end transaction panel is shown, but instead of showing just the selected operation it starts loading every call to that endpoint. It doesn't even limit it to the last 24 hours. Instead of being able to see a single opeartion it starts loading (and keeps loading), so far it is over 20 thousand! and it is…

  20. Allow clearing of time frame in Search queries

    After making a search and then selecting a time frame in the UI there's no way, that I could find, to reset the search to the current time frame.

    Repro:
    Do a search over the last 30 minutes
    Using the UI select a portion of that 30 minutes
    After reading the results try to get the latest 30 minutes again

    Results:
    UI doesn't have any way of clearing the time
    Even the 30 minutes I was last at is not selectable in the UI
    In order to get the 30 minutes back I need to select the last hour, hit…
