    string contents = Layout.Render(logEvent);

    contents = contents.Replace('<', ' ')

                                .Replace(&#39;&gt;&#39;, &#39; &#39;)

  3. Stop forcing me to give feedback - I have work to do

    I am in the middle to trying to to work - and the Azure portal decides I need to provide feedback - no way to opt out - just provide feedback - or this drop down will not go away. It sucks - I am trying to do work - I will provide feedback when I am not in the middle of something .

  5. Would like the ability to display dates in clients time zone in smart detections.

    Currently smart detection shows dates in UTC. We would like the ability to set the time zone for display purposes only.. or use timezone based on the client browsers time zone

  7. Don't allow Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget to be installed on .NET 4.0

    Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget requires Microsoft.ApplicationInsights, but when I add the NuGet package Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget on a project that targets .NET 4.0, it installs fine, but doesn't install Microsoft.ApplicationInsights. Trying to manually add Microsoft.ApplicationInsights results in an error since it requires .NET 4.5. I think Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.NLogTarget needs to block installation on .NET 4.0 unless there is something I'm totally missing.

    Also, if there is a better place to file bugs, please advise.

  8. How do I remove ApplicationInsights for a specific environment from Azure Portal ?

    What is the way to deactivate App Insights for our production environment ? We could remove AppInsights nuget packages from our app, but that would prevent us from using it when deployed in our test / staging environment. However, we do not want to use it anymore on production environment (due to too many "surprise monthly price" bad news).

    How can we do that ?

  9. Do not deprecate weekly Application Insights Digest Emails

    Please do not deprecate the weekly Application Insights digest emails. They provide exactly the information I want and need without the added effort of having to setup a custom reporting option. It just seems silly to take this feature away and force your customers to setup a programmatic "custom" reporting option using Microsoft Flow or Logics Apps with an Azure Function when you already provide a very reasonable automatic weekly digest email option.

  10. Add convenience support for aggregating metrics

    Can the sample code here be supported and merged into the SDK? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-insights/app-insights-api-custom-events-metrics#aggregating-metrics

    I like how natural and convenient the Requests and Exceptions and etc. integration is (for ASP.NET) but metrics is less convenient at the moment.

  11. 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.

  12. Reduce Map Spacing when clustering

    When you have a map with many services/roles/applications.
    There is a tendency to have a few "hotspots" centered on the map and all the other things moved "far away" such that to get an overview you have to zoom out where each node in the graph is ridiculously small.

    It would be awesome if the clustering could somehow take into account that the spacing relative to these central hotspots should not be too large. Included screendump of an example.

  13. Change variables and preconditions names in applicationHost.xdt file for app service extension in Azure

    The application insights azure app extension comes with an applicationHost.xdt file.
    You guys have the same names of variables and preconditions of all the examples found online.

    For example, the name of 2 variables and 1 precondition:
    HTTPACCEPTENCODING and HTTPXORIGINALACCEPTENCODING
    NeedsRestoringAcceptEncoding

    So when i added my own applicationHost.xdt file with the same variables names (as were the examples found online), in order to do reverse proxy with URL rewrite i had issues making it work.
    I am new to this, so it took me a while to figure it out that there was actually…

  14. Dimension in User Flow Chart

    If you select Dimensions in the User Flow it's not getting visible if there are long event names. Therefore show it seperatly on the cards.

  15. 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.

  16. Add a connection count for function apps

    Add a connection count for function apps. When my app gets socked with messages it goes into an unhealthy state as it tries to process all of them. It opens too many connections. Regardless if I use a lazy one or not, It's going to choke if it takes a long time to process and it's receiving a lot in a rush.

  17. Redact user information from Continuous export of App Insights

    With GDPR it would be nice to add a feature that allows you to redact user information when using the continuous export function with App Insights.

  18. Make "New Work Item" send to a webhook

    As we use Target Process rather than Github or VSTS I would like a new work item to send to something we control so we can generate work items

  20. Please capture the full query text when recording SQL Commands

    Currently it appears as though SQL commands captured by AI are truncated if they're greater than 750 characters (I believe). For those of us that use Entity Framework, that's often not large enough to capture the entire command. This makes diagnosing query problems very difficult.

    Please capture either all of the command text, or at least something larger like 1500 or 3000 characters. Yes, this is a very large query - but it can be difficult to tame the beast that is Entity Framework.
