  1. Add exception details like call stack to Alert emails for quicker investigation

    Alert emails for exceptions do not show exception message and call stack. It forces us to click on app insights link which is slow to open and we've to click through multiple links to get to call stacks which is slow and can take many minutes. This is productivity loss and sometimes we don't get to investigate all alerts due to the overhead involved because of lack of this feature

  3. Auto-adjusting alerts based on moving averages, and more

    Please enable alerts by a percent or hard number above or below a threshold calculated by AI, as in the average value of this metric for this time of day for this day of the week. On Sunday and Monday, we have low traffic to our apps, so it is very unlikely for alerts based on Friday volume to trigger, even though there may be issues for the low volume users on a Sunday or Monday.

  4. alert when a metric sample is no longer sent (missing data)

    Please support the ability to configure an alert rule to trigger then the associated metric data is no longer sent (missing data)., so that we can detect issues with the application that result in lack of data. The alert shall auto-resolve when data next arrives (and if the threshold criteria is satisfied).

    we have not closed on a plan at this time. As a workaround however, please note the update here: https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/14428134-add-alerts-based-on-results-of-analytics-queries. With the support for metrics derived from analytics queries, you can track an aggregate of the data received, and set a different number when there are no results. Let us know if that works for you.

  5. Add the ability to configure alerting service windows in Application Insights

    Please add the ability to configure service windows in AppInsights Alerting. We provide some services to customers in timeframes that are not 24/7, for example 10x7 or 8x5 (Business Hours). I would like to supress alerts that occur outside these services windows and provide uptime reports for our services within those service windows.

  6. App Insight alert email should show all the recipients in To line

    App Insight allows to set list of recipients who wants to receive alert email in the event when there is a failure with availability web tests. We can provide more than one recipients using semicolon.

    Let's say we specified more than 1 recipients to receive email alert from App Insight then when recipient actually receive the alert email it only shows 1 email address of the person who received it.

    It would be better to show all the all the recipients in To line of App Insight alert email so everyone who is looking at that email to know who…
