  1. 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.

  2. Add ability to see related telemetry for dependency calls

    We can see related telemetry for requests and exceptions. Allow us to see this for dependecy calls as well. This would make it much easier to investigate slow or failed dependency calls.

  3. Preserve Time Range

    When browsing around charts on Azure, they all seem to default to 24-hour time range. I almost always want a 30 minute time range because I'm usually looking at charts when I am trying to diagnose an issue. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Azure remembers this setting and it seems to be stored separately per blade so I find myself spending a lot of time just switching the granularity.

    Ideally, Azure would apply some machine learning and magically figure out what I want and adjust the defaults accordingly. More realistically, I would like to be able to setup a site-wide…

  4. Url for time spans and other filtering

    It would be great if it were possible to drill into a particular time range for any of the analytis pages, and then generate a URL to be able to send to someone else ( or yourself ) which will take you back to that appropriate timespan (and/or any other filters you have in place ).

    Or alternatively be able to save these filters as sharable and just have the timespan as a url parameter.

    Thanks for the feedback. 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

  5. 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.

  6. gelf Graylog format support for streaming logs to Application Insights

    gelf is Graylog Extended Format

    There is an official and widely used logging driver for Docker based on gelf see https://docs.docker.com/config/containers/logging/gelf/

    This idea would enable sending the log output (console output) of a docker container via gelf to Application Insights (log-aggregation) n a direct fashion.

    There exists a custom way to achieve this which is however quite hacky, as blogged at https://lbadri.wordpress.com/2018/03/10/sending-docker-container-logs-to-azure-application-insights-using-gelf-driver/

  7. 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.

  9. Character encodings supported by Application Insights

    It would be nice if it is clarified which character encoding is supported by Application Insights and SDKs.
    We may want to send telemetry with application logs via LogBack and AI Appender but the log may have multi-bytes local language characters.

  11. Add optional resource group filter to Live Metrics Stream

    I would like to narrow my view down to only a single resource group when viewing the Live Metrics Stream. In my case I have similar assets deployed to different resource groups. Seeing them all together is good, but I would also like to see one (resource group's worth) at a time.

  12. 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.

  13. Capture Region of Executing Process as part of analytics data

    In the analytics schema, we have fields cloud_RoleName and cloud_RoleInstance. When an application is deployed to multiple regions and each deployment is using a single instrumentation key, it would be useful to split data by the cloud geographic region that processed the telemetry,

    e.g. cloud_GeoRegion, to contain data such as 'West Europe', 'West US', 'UK West' etc.

    This would apply to any of the schemas, where cloud_RoleName and cloud_RoleInstance are recorded.

  16. Capture Screen Resolution is missing

    You used to be able to get Screen Resolution by creating a new Session chart and Grouping By "Screen Resolution". This option is no longer there! How can find this info now so it can help me make decisions (please don't let it be send custom events... i need to look at my current historic data)?

  17. Enable more cohort analysis tools in Application Insights

    We are using AI for assessing the usage of features using custom events, but better ways of seeing changes in usage over time within Application Insights queries would be beneficial (new chart types and cohort groupings)

  18. Add the ability to define tags when creating VSTS Work Items in Application Insights

    By adding the ability of including tags with a Work Item for VSTS in the Application Insights workflow, this will allow teams to have better query granularity with work that is defined by events in Application Insights.

  20. Track CDN metrics in Application Insights
