  5. Allow Combining of Individual Nodes in User Flow Diagrams

    Currently, if you have multiple pages that have the same root, but with different parameters, there is no way to collapse these into a singular category for analysis. There is already a grouping called other, so there is clearly the capability for doing grouped node analysis, and it would be great to see this extended to allow users to create their own groups. I would recommend allowing users to right-click on any node and offer options to combine it with any other node or existing node combination/grouping. This would solve the problem of logging pages with different queries (for example…

  9. Application map: Breakdown the instance into the webjobs parts on an appservice with multiple webjobs in it.

    Breakdown the instance into the webjobs parts on an appservice with multiple webjobs in it. Show the lines from each dependency call to each webjob.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. 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
