  1. Notify of problem when Scheduled Analytics Metric can't be saved

    Failure responses when creating the Scheduled Analytics Metric don’t appear in the UI for me. After a few times trying to create a metric and getting a blank answer without the item saving, I used browser development tools to find out the HTTP response was a 400 (bad request) and had various errors.

    Example 1: trying to save a metric with a name > 32 characters, the UI progress bar displays and quickly goes away, the metric doesn’t save, doesn’t go back to the list of metrics, and just sits there. Investigating the HTTP messages yields the following response: {"Message":"Metric…

  4. The Sample Operation should include HTTPHeaders

    It would be nice to see the HTTPHeaders for a given request. or maybe i can't find it and it is already there?

  6. Check Path

    Can VS check the Directory on creating a new Project,
    if my Name or the created Path too big for the System.

    i have create a project with name "Can I Cook Something" and i get a Exception later in the build Prozess:

  8. Implement support for the standard Azure RM metrics interface with Get-AzureRmMetric

    We're implementing a monitoring system for our Azure infrastructure and need to be able to query metrics for resources via PowerShell. We're currently able to use Get-AzureRmMetricDefinition and Get-AzureRmMetric to query metrics for other resources on a per-resource basis, but Application Insights doesn't support this (I would think) standard Azure RM interface. Please add support for Azure RM's Metrics infrastructure to query all the metrics otherwise available in Application Insights.

  9. Support Enterprise Library Console for Application Insights Diagnostics Logging

    Logging through Enterprise Logging Library is now possible through the NuGet package here: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.EntlibTraceListener/0.1.0-build00190.

    The main problem is that the Enterprise Library Console doesn't support this reference
    So as soon as we add a reference to Application Insights Diagnostics Logging, we can't use the Enterprise Library Configuration Console anymore

  10. Rotating dashboard of metrics

    I'd like to configure about 6 different live streams and then have a large monitor installed with a page that just rotates through the 6 live streams like once every 30 seconds. But even the ability to just create a full screen view with a bunch of URLs and have them rotate at some configurable timespan would be great. I can build one, but think this should just be part of the dashboard feature.

  11. Ask for confirmation before updating the Application Insights Extension

    When an update is available to the Application Insights extension, an alert with a go.microsoft.com link is displayed. If a user clicks that, the extension is immediately updated. This causes downtime because the app service is restarted.

    The update should not be executed without asking the user for confirmation. It is NOT clear from UI that the update will start immediately, rather I expected it to take me to a "update page" from where I can see the new version info, etc.

  12. Allow Application Insights Rest Api to return all data, even if the data = 0

    Currently Application Insights Rest Api doesn't return data that has a sum of 0, which makes generating graphs from the data incorrect and difficult.

  15. Increase the number of exceptions that appear in the VS Code Lens. Limiting to the top 15 exceptions is too small for large code bases.

    Increase the number of exceptions that appear in the VS Code Lens. Limiting to the top 15 exceptions is too small for large code bases. Perhaps top 100 exceptions or more would be much better.

  16. Remove daily data limit for Visual Studio Enterprise subscribers

    In a development situation, I've set up Application Insights to measure an Azure Function App. The function app is triggered every second with a small message from the IoTHub.
    Within the hour, I've reached a daily data limit for Application Insights. As a Visual Studio Enterprise subscriber, I expect that I could use my monthly credit for selecting a pricing tier.

  17. IIS LogParser view in appinsight

    Recently I have started using AppInsight and I found this to be very good monitoring tool as compared to appdynamics. I'm not sure whether this feature is in place. I would like to see Metrics view in AppInsight with options to view tabular details for the http request. Similar to IIS Log parsers. This will help analyse quickly which one is failing , pass, redirected etc. Overall search filter with trace, request looks good but it require bit of training to set right parameter and query. The inclusion of IIS log like query in built or ability write custom will…

  18. A memo box to use

    When you click a button a memo box pops up to help calculate
    algorithms. The usual memo page is too white & it disappears when typing codes.

  19. Allow Application Insights App Services extension survive clean redeployment

    If you enable App Services extension for your service from the portal and then redeploy your service from Visual Studio selecting the clean option that deletes existing files, you Application Insights monitoring will be disabled. To re-enable monitoring you will need to remove and re-enable extension again.
    Please improve this by detecting redeployment and re-enabling extension automatically.

  20. Generate alerts in case web tests are not executed because of certain reason.

    In case, web tests are not executed in azure application insight there should be an alert generated which can specify the reason behind such incident.
