  2. Application map sometimes shows all nodes and other times groups them together

    It's infuriating when it groups them all together for no reason.

  3. Introduction of App Insight SDK externally to deployed production applications

    Currently for production applications or applications which include product binaries, we are not able to enable introduction of SDK easily. We require to update application binaries (war, ear etc.) to update web.xml, but this is not always possible in production application.

    There is a need to introduce App Insight SDK externally to deployed production applications whereas there is not change/impact to application which is running.

    Alert sent to user: Fix: Merging of ETL files has failed (0x8007007a) error.

    What should we do now? Does AI recover gracefully or fall into a failed state and require the host to be restarted?

  7. Bug: Setting XDT_MicrosoftApplicationInsights_Mode = recommended produces bad response for node.js app

    When adding App Insights to a existing WebApps it comes preconfigured with App Settings XDTMicrosoftApplicationInsightsMode = recommended

    This causes the following strange behavior. Consider this simple node.js app:

    ```
    const http = require('http');

    const server = http.createServer(function(req, res) {
    if (req.url.indexOf('good') >= 0) {

    res.setHeader(&#39;Content-Type&#39;, &#39;application/json&#39;);
    

    } else {

    res.writeHead(200, { &#39;Content-Type&#39;: &#39;application/json&#39; });
    

    }
    res.end('{}');
    });

    console.log(Listening at port ${process.env.PORT}...);
    server.listen(process.env.PORT);
    ```

    basically what it does is setting ContentTypeo to json and returning {}. Two different ways of doing so (the route /good sets headers and sends them with the content, any other route…

  8. Add Desktop vs Mobile information in table pageView

    I'm looking into the performance of a website on Desktop vs. Mobile devices. The Application Insights table I mainly use is browserTimings.

    If it's possible, I would like to see an extra column in the tables pageViews and browserTimings to make it possible to differentiate between Desktop, Mobile, Tablet or Other devices.

    I can now make it up from the columns clientType, clientModel, and client_OS, but it would give me more peace of mind if this is already done when Application Insight has processed the data.

    Let me know what your thoughts are.

  9. When looking at failures in AppInsight, how can I see what went wrong in each case?

    When looking at failures in AppInsights, how can I see what went wrong in each case?
    Right now, all I can see is that "something" went wrong.
    It does not help me at all.

  10. Include Date Range in Application Insights URLs - Suitable for Linking in Post Mortem Documents

    When an issue impacts our services and disrupts customers, I want to be able to find related information in Application Insights, and then create links to that data in post mortem documents to direct other interested parties to precisely filtered resources related to the incident.

  12. Integrate AppInsight/Analytics visualiser/editor inside external WebSite/Sharepoint

    Azure App Insight Rest API is great and you already have done some great work on Charts.
    It would be great if you shared it to integrate into external websites so we don't have to turn raw datas into pretty graphics all over again (and ugly).

    Basically, I want a webpart where I type my query and get that on my sharepoint site (cf file). Or iframe integration.

  14. Smart Detection to provide more details into .NET processes

    We have a WebAPI2 project that is spawning memory & CPU warnings - SmartDetection shows the metrics and when they occurred.

    However, there's no actionable details - like which .NET objects are consuming memory, or what API calls are generating CPU utilization.

  16. In the live metrics stream, I'd like to have the ability to filter which hosts are shown.

    I got a message saying that we had too many servers reporting. I don't necessarily need to see all of the hosts there, but I would like to be able to create a sharable, saveable view of the live metrics stream for a specific subset of hosts.

    This view would be very useful for monitoring high web volume events for our clients.

  18. Add support for programmatic cohort creation (e.g. via PowerShell)

    I would like to create a release pipeline which creates and configures a new AppInsights resource. Anyhow, I cannot find any option to do the AppInsights configuration. Example: Cohort creation. I cannot find how this can be done automatically via a release pipeline.

  19. Compress continuous export data using GZip

    It would be great if data could be compressed using GZip while exporting to Blob Storage (either by default, or as an option). It should compress quite well (saving on storage and transfer costs), and if the content-encoding on the blob is then set correctly most tools (and browsers) will be able to decompress the blobs on-the-fly when downloading.

    Also, setting the content-type to "application/x-json-stream" may help integration with other tools.

  20. App Services attach support custom applicationInsights.config.

    Currently we cannot change the ApplicationInsights.config, when we have set up Application Insights extension for monitoring Web App.
    ApplicationInsights.config is hidden from Kudu console.
    Could you review the below idea?

    idea:
    App Services attach support custom ApplicationInsights.config, when we have set up Application Insights extension.
