  2. Improve Custom Event attributes sort order

    Currently all custom event data tracked is visible in the filtered search. Browsing between multiple events and comparing the custom data is difficult because the order in the dashboard or search view for custom events ALWAYS sorts the custom fields / properties in different order, not even alphabetically.

  3. 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

  4. Export functionality in App insight

    Would be great if I can export charts in pdf format from Azure app insight.

  5. Increase the size of the name of the Application Insights instance on the Live Metrics Screen

    We have multiple Live Views, and the size of the name of the AI instance is very small and tucked under the generic Live Metrics Stream title. Makes it difficult. Would like to see the name larger, or ideally be able to display a "Friendly" name for the instance.

  6. When choosing the time range the calendar settings should be configurable. Week start day, 24H format.

    When choosing the time range in Failures and Search the calendar settings should be configurable. I would like to be able to choose the week start day, 24H format. Or at least, it should take the local settings. The week starts from Monday, not Sunday, in the UK and Ireland. The 24H format is more convenient to set the custom time.

  9. 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.

  11. How to backfill continuous export for a previous date

    During Azure outage on 09/04, continuous export stop exporting data to blob from 10 to 15. However I was still able to see data in app insights.

    I was not able find a way to backfill export between 09/04 10 am to 3pm. Is the function supported? How to do it?

  12. Export the request urls that have a response code of 404 into csv

    In the failures it'd be handy to be able to export the request urls that are giving the 404s so when a page has been removed or multiple pages have been removed. It can easily be exported so redirects can be easily handled and there'll be a reduce in any failures seen.

  13. Add clarity on how a standalone Java Application (not a web app) can leverage Application Insights for monitoring.

    Standalone Java applications may not be using web, but once integrated with Application Insights SDK, could use its telemetry API to report exceptions, metrics etc.
    Are there any specific steps to be taken to make this work, apart from possibly running on Tomcat to allow Telemetry client to communicate with Application Insights service in Azure.

  14. Let us remove Smart Detection items or filter out localhost requests

    I'd like to be able to remove items from Smart Detection I have investigated and/or solved. Also, I need to filter out localhost as development on localhost skews response times

  15. Show QueryString And Domain originated the exception for WebApp

    En To End transaction details does not include domain and QueryString that originated the exception in WebApp, making it hard to debug.

  16. Add additional email recipient for alerts and apply it to all alerts

    At the moment if you want to add an additional recipient to the alerts you have to manually edit all alerts. A setting can be added to apply a list of email recipients to all alerts.

  17. Provide a option to override country or region

    When browsing through a VPN the IP address is changed and it mess up the user country/region information from the client perspective. Currently there is not a way to change the country/region using the client side nor the server side. It would be good to provide a way to override such an information by using an initializer.

  18. Use deep links in Smart Detection emails

    Received an email today from Smart Detection, but the "see analysis of the issue" and "configure" links just go to my Azure portal main page. I am already logged in to Azure in that browser. So if these are deep links they are not working for some reason.

  19. Any estimate on when the App Insights snapshot debugger feature will leave 'preview'?

    I've tried to find a roadmap or plan somewhere, to no avail.
    The feature is amazing, but I'm having trouble within our organizational policy bringing in tools in that are not yet GA.

    It also was difficult to establish if the feature was still in preview, various places seem ambivalent on the status (e.g. nuget, azure portal, ms docs tend to either omit or keep the preview label)
