  1. Add metric namespace property to customMetrics table

    Metric namespace is available to filer by when building a chart on Metrics blade. However, there is no way to query or filter by metric namespace when querying customMetrics table in Log Analytics.

    Is it possible to add metric namespace property to customMetrics table?

  2. Enable the creation of Annotations in VSTS linux agents

    Adding the release annotation task on a Linux agent throws the following error:

    [error]A supported task execution handler was not found. This error usually means the task does not carry an implementation that is compatible with your current operating system. Contact the task author for more details.

    Write the release task to support Linux or OS agnostic.

  3. Add Seconday Axis to Charts in Analytics

    I have 3 output columns TimeStamp(datetime), JobRunDuration (int), RowsProcessed (int)

    When I use “render timechart” AI is showing me the two Int values on same axis.
    It would be great if a secondary axis could be added to charts so that two values could be represented in same chat.

  4. App Insight integration with Azure Key Vault

    It would be great to have a tight integration of App Insight with Azure Key Vault so that it allows App Insight able to fetch credentials directly from Key Vault during run time to run the availability web tests. We don't want to hard code anything in web tests to connect to Key Vault but rather it should be able to connect and fetch required credentials from Vault and run the web tests.

  5. Move dashboard widgets to another dashboard

    I am currently building multiple AppInsight dashboards and discovered there is no way to move a widget from one dashboard to another. Also, when looking at a AppInsight Chart and clicking the pin, I can't tell which dashboard it will be pinned to.

  7. Integrate Azure Application Insights Dashboard with Microsoft Teams

    The Azure AI Dashboard is really amazing, we have all our required data available at one place. However, we want the ability to integrate that dashboard on Microsoft Teams, as the data we are aiming to collect is mainly for Product people and we do not want them to login to azure portal time and again to check the stats from application, also, we do not want them to modify anything on the portal. Also we want all the some of the other devs to have access to that data, but we do not want them to mess with the…

  8. Allow Instrumentation Key Regeneration

  9. User Flow custom time range support

    Currently user cannot set custom time range on User Flow menu and it is difficult to get User Flow for specified interval. (e.g. to get daily report, user has to log-in Azure portal same time every day to get last 24 hours of data. )
    Please add custom time range support on user Flow menu.

  10. Support exception.Data.Add()

    The Exception class allows us to add custom data using exception.Data.Add("label", "value"). It would be useful if this data could show up in Application Insights.

    Using telemetry.TrackException() we can report custom data in a very similar way as a Dictionary<string,string>, so hopefully it wouldn't be much work to support exception.Data.Add().

    The advantage would be that the custom data would be supported for exceptions that are caught and rethrown, as well as those using telemetary.TrackException().

    Message of logged exception is often cut off. Full data cannot be displayed.
    Please increase length of message property to get full data.

    Thank you for posting this suggestion.

    While work has not started on this suggestion yet, configuring Smart Detection rules via ARM and integrating with Action Groups are in our plans, and something we’d very much like to add after the current set of priorities are implemented. We’ll keep posting updates here as anything changes.

    As for supporting “to define separate rules sets based on resource groups”, could you please clarify on this suggestion? Are you looking to configure Smart Detection rules at the resource group level rather than on the individual Application Insights resource?

    Thanks,
    Harel Broitman

  13. First class support for Service Fabric

    While Service Fabric was in preview there was a nuget package for AI in SF, but seems that it has not gone GA with SF. Would love to see health reports from SF in AI, along with monitoring of services/actors.

  14. Pre-filtered application map

    Allow creation of pre-filtered views for application map. I have many nodes writing to the same application insights from different environments.
    It will be helpful if i could create a pre-filtered views of the application map using specific cloud role names

  15. Ensure live metrics respects the current theme

    The portal looks great. Very slick. Not applying the dark theme to this cool view is jarring.

  16. Embeddables/Web widgets

    I would love to be able to take different metrics/data, and show them with live data on my own company website or dashboard.

    We could show the overall performance of our company apps on our custom dashboard.
    It could be an easy way for us to give customers various data about our apps on their environment.

    And tonnes of more uses.

  17. URL of monitor the availability of website

    When we use monitor the availability of website, insert URL on Azure portal. On the other hand, It seems that the syntax of the URL is not checked.
    For example, even if insert "Space" in FQDN of URL, it can be registered to monitor. It is useful to have a function to check the syntax when registering.

  18. filter app map based on tag or environment

    App Map as well as metrics can get cluttered with dev/test and even local machine data. While you could use different app insights keys, it would also be helpful to easily tag an environment and then easily filter out an environment on app map and other visualizations

  19. Make data retention period configurable by data type / event content

    For now data retention period is fixed to 90 days and can't be changed.
    In reality telemetry events have different values and should be stored accordingly.
    For example I'm interested in storing exception data only for a day or two, just to raise alerts. Trace records are needed to diagnose particular behavior\ reproduce a bug, so they should be kept just for the time I need to get this job done.
    On the contrary user related events, like purchases, logins, specific actions are very valuable and should be stored for years.
    These retention rules are unique to each business, so…

  20. Handle TSQL commands in the dependency blade better

    In the command field in the dependency blade, long TSQL commands get truncated and remove the most important part of the statement, the FROM and WHERE clauses. Without this, the entire blade is almost useless.

    It would be better to show the entire statement, or even truncate the start of the statement, rather than the end.
