  1. Add Release Annotations to the Performance/Failures views

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

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Return Export ID on Application Insights Continuous Export creation

    Currently, creating a Continuous Export via the API or Go SDK returns a list of all continuous export configurations on success.

    It would be better if it returned only the export configuration just created, or only the Export ID for the configuration just created, so the user knows the Export ID of the new export configuration.

    Please see https://github.com/Azure/azure-sdk-for-go/issues/4745 for more details.

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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().

  13. Application Insights in North Central US

    We have restrictions that all our disaster recovery resources should be created in "North Central US" region. As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights. Are there any plans on having app insights for North Central US region?

  14. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. Add a server filter to the Live Metrics Stream

    On the Live Metrics Stream it would be useful to be able to view the metrics for a subset of servers. Currently it is only possible to view all servers together or a single server.

    For example, if I had a Virtual Machine Scale Set (VMSS) representing servers hosting an application gateway and another VMSS representing servers hosting back end microservices, I would like to be able to select all gateway servers to view metrics for the combined set of gateway servers.

  19. VueJs Support

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

  20. Allow auditing of Application Insights activity

    Support the ability to audit and view who is using various features in AI, ad hoc queries that are run, what information was viewed, etc. Perhaps feed this information into Azure Activity Logs or similar. This information can then be used for certain auditing scenarios as well as usage and behavior information.
