  1. Auto-refresh Application Maps on Dashboards

    Currently, all metric charts on a dashboard have the ability to auto-refresh on a Dashboard, but application maps do not.

    We find the app map to be a very useful monitoring across our whole solution, but it's completely useless on a large tv screen if it doesn't auto-refresh.

  3. Show partial Instrumentation Key in Dashboard to identify App Insight instances by instrumentation key

    When dealing with different App Insight instances specified within config files using an Instrumentation Key, it can be difficult to locate the specific App Insight Instance in the Azure Portal, armed only with the instrumentation key.

    Given an instrumentation key, I would like to quickly navigate to the relevant Application Insights instance in the Azure Portal, perhaps by being able to see a couple of the characters from the instrumentation key next to the list of the App Insights instances.

  4. DBMS name to be configured in the Application Insights Configuration

    DBMS: The connect string is configured in the portal.azure.net in the Application Insights, that gives me a unique id for me to copy and paste in scm.azurewebsites.net . There by I get that one word string to be used in @ scm.azurewebsites.net for me to connect to DBMS which is a unique connection string encrypted that is only accessible from azurewebsites.net and my development environment by using SID and Application ID data web application, It is just like InstrumentionID, Application Key ID etc.,

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, could you please help provide additional details about the scenario you are trying to achieve so we better understand the requirement and this would also help the user community to upvote & comment on. This also 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.

  5. application insight rest api - allow filter on ingressTimestamp

    Currently the rest api does not allow to do the filter using "le", "ge" etc. IngressTimestamp which is part of CustomDimension item. I guess this is because it is treating ingressTimestamp as string field. It allows for eq operator but does not allow le gt etc. This is useful for pulling the incremental data from the application insight. we cannot rely on the timestamp field because some records are back filled. if we rely on timestamp to do the incremental extract then we miss some records

  8. 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

  9. Add Clarity on the Performance Testing, Is IT also deprecated along with DevOps?

    It's unclear if Application Insights performance tests are the same or will also be deprecated along with DevOps Web Tests/Load Testing.

    The performance testing shows up as "preview" which makes it look like it may be a new feature coming but not something that will be deprecated and thus a waste of time to look at.

  10. performance filter should be like search filter with picker for custom dimensions

    The Performance and Failures blades filtering should be like the fancy one from the Search blade. I don't like having to manually enter the custom dimensions and values rather than just picking. More so, I'd like to be able to save the filters (globally) and use on any blade (voted for other feature request). The filters still don't carry into the "View in Analytics" (other bug).

  12. Mayor informacion de los errores detectados en Live Metrics Stream

    En el Live Metrics Stream se proporciona información sobre los errores detectados en tiempo real, sin embargo al hacer clic sobre ellos, la información es muy poca, sería muy interesante que se muestre mayor información acerca del error o haya un link que te lleve directamente al modulo de errores para poder saber de que trata a quien afecto.

  13. Add performance of the measurements as a result just like availability in the new view.

    In the new view I miss the average time/duration of the measurements. In the Old view it was there. Please put this option back so i don't have to switch to the old view to recieve that data.

  15. Consolidate Settings

    Consolidate the various places where one cat set the instrumentation key. I just found that my app had two different keys:

    APPINSIGHTS_INSTRUMENTATIONKEY
    ApplicationInsights:InstrumentationKey

    One set by the portal, which I think is for the debugger, snapshots, more integrated solutions and the other one is set by me or VS at install into the app. This is the one that I would typically use to embed for JS and (in some cases) manually at startup for the app.

    There's also the config file, it seems (I don;t use that). There should be one place to ensure that the correct key is…

  17. Have the ability to display metrics associated with requests/dependencies onto the Application map

    I am adding some of our own metrics to the requests and dependencies for our application. i.e. Things like num deals booked, KiB processed etc...

    It would be very cool to see these on the application map, perhaps floating nearby the associated components/links.

    This would probably need to be configurable to avoid information overflow.

  18. Usage Blades (Users, Sessions, Events, etc., etc.) usable across App Insights Resources

    Even though I can create Analytics queries across multiple AI resources, I do not have a way to view information across AI resources in a view like the blades in the Usage section. I would really, really like to be able to use these blades across AI resources, not unlike the way that the Transaction view automatically spans AI resources when looking at telemetry.

    Our system is composed of 30+ different ASP.NET applications and one SaaS non-.NET site that users interact with as if it were a single system. We have all pieces of it instrumented with App Insights, each…

  20. Decrease Web Test lantency after disabling monitoring

    After a Web Test is disabled, there is a 15-20 minutes latency before it is really disabled.
    It is causing a bunch of false-possitive alerts during automated deployments. Is there any way to reduce it?
    Thanks.
