  1. Update more frequently pinned to a Dashboard charts created in Analytics

    As a DevOps I need to observe aggregation of custom metrics showing the pulse of the system, which can be very nicely implemented via a query in App Insights\Analytics but if you pin them on a Dashboard they will update only hourly.

    We need an option for auto-refresh on such tiles/charts pinned on dashboard to be refreshed each 1-5 minutes.

  2. Automatic refresh and configurable refresh interval

    Introduce a dashboard setting to allow configuring a refresh interval, similar to the concept in Kibana, e.g.

    https://s33.postimg.cc/4dy7qrbhb/refresh-interval.png

    At the configured interval, all tiles on a dashboard should refresh their sources and update accordingly

  4. Error message of delete failure should be more specific.

    Even just the App Insights resource is locked to prevent to be deleted, we can't determine it since the error message is as below.

    "Could not deleted
    Could not delete application"

    The message should be more specific like as other resources such as Web Apps.

  5. Support for on-prem

    It would be great to use Application Insights for on-premises scenarios as well.

  6. Add session replay

    Add ability to do session replay. Dynatrace has the ability to tie performance metrics with session replay allowing you to a) see how slow your site feels to others and b) look at the performance metrics for why it is slow.

  7. Add Release Annotations to the Performance/Failures views

    Would be great if you could see Release Annotations from Dependencies as well.

  8. Add support for HTTP method and HTTP header in "URL ping" web tests

    Lots of our API requires authorization, in these cases we need to add HTTP header to the request.

    We've had a problem with app service not accepting PUT and DELETE requests multiple times (the requests were canceled before they reached our code = they were not logged in Application Insights for example) and we want to have a test that lets us know when this happens again.

    In both cases, URL ping test would be enough we could specify HTTP method & HTTP header. It does not make sense to use multi step web tests for this & pay for…

  9. Allow pinned Analytics Dashboard Charts to click through to event search view.

    One of the great features of Application Insights is the ability to drill down into the data by clicking through the metrics charts to create new filtered search blades.

    Many useful built in portal tiles have been removed recently (e.g. 'Top Crashes' showing Impacted User Count); Analytics allows us to recreate the same view on a dashboard in a more general way but the pinned chart does not have the same "drill down" abilities to the data that the old built in tiles had.

    It would be great if there was an option to allow clicking through the pinned charts…

  10. Azure Dashboard Tiles for Scalar Analytics Queries

    For simple KPIs it would be great to be able to pin a simple scalar result to a small (1x1 to 2x2) dashboard tile.

    Ideally these could be made visually identical to the built-in KPI tiles from Application Insights for Users, Page Views, etc, including the option to set an Icon & Up/Down trend.

  11. 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

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  12. Show traces in End-To-End view

    The End-To-End view currently displays requests, dependencies and exceptions. It would be nice with an option to also display traces in the timeline, instead of having to click the "View all telemetry" button, and viewing them as a long list.

    This will especially improve readability for parallel sub-operations, which is very hard in a long list view, and relatively easy in the fold/unfold view of the timeline.

    As there can sometimes be many traces, it would be nice with an option to select a severity level filter.

  13. Export past events in same format as continuous export

    After I turn on continuous export I would like to do a one time pull of event data that occurred before continuous export was enabled. This feature would export the data in the same format provided by continuous export to make it easy to ingest into a downstream reporting system.

  14. 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().

  15. unminify - add support for multiple apps

    While hosting multiple frontend apps and deploying them one per app service, in case they share the same folder and filename structure the feature does not work currently if we use a single app insights instance.

    The same folder and filename structure is typical for every frontend framework nowadays.
    Example:
    https://app1.com/js/main.js
    https://app2.com/js/main.js

    In this case the last deployed jsmap files will be the only ones accessible and debugging will become more confusing than helpful.

    Please add support for this as it seems a core functionality that might have been overlooked.

  16. Log blocking function at Application insights side

    Application Insights uses the Application Insights Instrumentation Key to freely collect logs for different subscriptions and environments.
    At the same time, unnecessary logs may be uploaded if the Application Insights Instrumentation Key is known.

    Therefore, it is necessary for Application Insights to have a function to identify the resources to which logs are to be transferred and to block those resources that are not required for monitoring.

    Thank you for the feedback, can you please help expand your scenario , expectation is that we only share Application Insights Instrumentation Key from those who there telemetry events be sent to Application insights instance , however when you say unnecessary logs may be uploaded it would be helpful if you can explain your scenario so that our team can further evaluate the feedback

  17. Filter application map based on cloud role name

    Be able to filter the nodes which are visible on the application map

  18. Export user flow graph as png/jpg/pdf

    There should be an option to export the user flow graph to an image or a PDF, so it can be shared with colleagues who don't have and need not have Azure access.
