  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Add ability to recycle, stop, and start an IIS application pool

    It would be great if Application Insight could provide control over the current AppPool. And even better, if it could provide ability to reboot the server.

  11. Application Insights Slowest Operations should respond to filters

    In Application Insights portal, when you go to the page called Performance, there is a chart that shows the server response times and a list below with the title "What re my slowest operations?"

    I can add filters to the page, but they will only filter the chart not the list below, I think this is a bug, because when you then click on a call in the list below, it opens in a details pane, but the pane shows no data because that pane is filtered with the same filters as the chart.

    So you need to remove the…

  12. Change Sample Telemetry list under Live Metrics Stream to append new items at the bottom

    The Sample Telemetry list adds new items at the top. This makes it confusing since lists normally append new stuff at the bottom.

    Change it to append and auto scroll to the bottom.

  13. Add ability to dismiss the banner tips

    The banner tips are helpful, but I would like to dismiss them.
    They get annoying rather quickly since you can’t remove them and they take focus away.

  15. There needs to be a low-latency log display or API

    Like all telemetry, logging currently arrives in the form of searchable data only after a significant lag.

    That makes the logging unusable for debugging purposes, which is one of the most important use cases for logging.

    There needs to be a way to either view incoming log entries in near real-time or there needs to be an API to get at them at near real time.

    Alternatively, it should be possible to redirect the events to a message or even queue in near real time.

    At the moment, one has to send logging from one's application twice: once to app…

  17. How to perform queries using the Azure API format: user authentication

    I want to get json data as explain in rest api doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/overview

    customEvents | where customDimensions.teamId == '8bcb0466-8227-4de4-b001-b70381b9cd04'

    As the rest api have limit of 15 call per min and 1500 per day as doc https://dev.applicationinsights.io/documentation/Authorization/Rate-limits says to use Azure API and Azure Active Directory but there is no example available for that.

    I want to do it in node js but didn't find any sdk for the same.

    For AD authentication I used assport-azure-ad library.
    node.js azure active-directory ms-application-insights

  18. Deleting Application Insights Resource does not remove site extension from app service using that resource

    When removing Application Insights from an app service, you can delete the resource in the portal. But it still keeps the site extension for the Application Insights Profiler web job installed and running. You have to manually uninstall the site extension to fully remove all traces of application insights from the app service. This should happen automatically.

  19. Please provide documentation

    There is need for a good reference documentation (like normal MSDN documentation on the MSDN site), as well as "user guide" documentation and architectural documentation with whitepapers and elaborations on the different ways the framework can be used under different circumstances. For example how to use it in complex solutions with man different systems and platforms involved with different development, testing and production environment, integration with VisualStudio.com and so on.

  20. Allow customers to identify App Insights resources which are collecting data but no one is viewing it

    It's essential in the enterprise to ensure that App Insights resources that are collecting data are really being used, and not just collecting data, incurring costs, but no one is using the data.
