  1. 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.

  2. Azure Dashboard charts are limited to 30 Days

    We want to prepare dashboard which query application insight data for more than 30 days and currently that is not possible. Dashboard custom date selection should fetch application insight data which is beyond 30 days.
    Also, it gets override if you keep the timestamp in query itself.

    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.

  3. Allow to select all alerts of a smart group (not only visible)

    When viewing an alert smart group there's a possibility to select and edit all alerts at once. The issue is, that the "select all" option only selects the visible alerts of the current page. It doesn't select all alerts of all pages.
    If there are lots of alerts in a smart group it's very painful to iterate through all pages and process the activities for every page.
    It would be very useful to change the behavior of the "select all" option to really select all alerts (including alerts of other pages) or to add further select option to enable the…

  4. 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().

  5. integration send alert to third party (azure service bus, event hub, IFTTT, Slack)

    Allow app insight integration with third party (azure service bus, event hub, IFTTT, Slack). Allow sending metrics or alerts on a schedule or on trigger to third party. For example, send alerts to Slack.

  6. Setting threshold for Available MBytes

    We can gather Available MBytes (\Memory\Available MBytes) of Cloud Service as App Insights telemetry with setting Diagnotics configuration as pic1.png.
    However, I don't know how can we determine the supplementary unit for that when we want to set an alert rule. The unit of it appears just "count" as pic2.png.
    Also, as far as I checked, it is not "MBytes" but "Bytes" contrary to the name of the counter.
    It would be nice if all unit of counters are displayed clearly.

  7. VueJs Support

    Add support for VueJs that supports the entire Analytics feature set. There is an open source one currently, but its pretty basic.

  10. Add a public library of common used analytics queries

    While some applications have specific requirements, a lot of reports that come out of analystics must be pretty common. It would be nice to have an área in which to find common queries already optimized and 'verified' by the community and/or Microsoft itself.
    Queries like: "between two dates, which are the pages that had most time consumption difference"

  11. Create REST api for custom tracking i.e. trackEvent, trackView

    Create a REST api which will allow tracking methods to be called via a REST api.

    E.g POST methods for creating custom events https://dev.applicationinsights.io/api/trackevent

  12. Get status monitor for other platforms (Java based web servers, BDD servers, Linux or Windows)

    Status monitor gather a lot of useful info, it would be nice getting a status monitor for other web servers (Tomacat, Apache), hooking into Java SDK too, and compatible with Windows and Linux.

    Also, status monitor for other types of servers like SQL Server or Oracle, or non web based app servers would be usefull to understand system behaviors for end to end analysis.

    Moreover, installing an agent while system is already in production is a change easy to test and apply, whereas asking for a new release including custom telemetry can take time (depending on continous deployment efficiency).

  13. Allow me to move of icons in Application maps.

    I leverage Application maps to monitor traffic flow. It's difficult to have a holistic view if I'm not able to move the individual icons closer together.
    Right now I have to move up and down the map because the icons spread out too much so I miss something if it's all the way down the bottom, so please allow me to move of icons in Application maps.

  14. "service tag" for Application Insights whitelisting in NSGs

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-network/security-overview

    Create a service tag for application insights so it is easier for a user to whitelist the app insights IPs on the NSGs

  15. Draw dependencies in Application Map for independent services on same sub domain

    When two independent services with different cloud role names are hosted on the same subdomain are called from the same source than the Application Map feature in Application Insight does not draw a connection from the source to both application nodes. Instead, the source is only connected to one service node, see "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" in the attached zip file.

    The file "BadApplicationMap.cs" have code which produces some sample telemetry that illustrates the current limitation of the Application Map feature. See also "wrongly drawn application map.PNG" for the application map that is created by the telemetry from that code.…

  17. 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.

  18. Ability to exclude specific requests from Performance Preview Blade in Azure Portal

    This Performance (Preview) blade in the Azure Portal is super helpful.

    One suggestion though: we have lots of very frequent (and fast) requests to a health check resource which is pinged by the load balancer and also used for the availability tests which run every 1 minute from 4 different locations.

    These requests totally pollute the statistics.

    Is it possible to filter out specific requests?

  19. Expose a "Application Insights Component Reader" Role Definition

    In the same way you expose the "Application Insights Component Contributor" role, expose a new role that give access to Overview and all other parts of AI (including Analytics) in a read-only fashion

  20. Show different trace colors based on severity

    On the Search blade, all of the Traces are green, whether or not the level is Informational, Warning, Error, etc. It would be nice if you could change it so that Debug was blue, Informational was green, Warning was yellow, Error was red, etc. to make it easier to distinguish the different levels in the list.
