How can we improve Azure API Management?

Log custom traces to Application Insights

Provide a policy to log custom traces to Azure Application Insights, similar to the log-to-eventhub policy.

    From an platform point of view it makes much sense to have all telemetry data in one repository like app insights to streamline ops and life easier for devops

    For me, putting everything that is traced in <trace> policy expressions into customDimensions of Application Insights requests telemetry, would suffice for a start.

    Well, I was comparing the Azure APIM a logging approach with AWS API Gateway CloudWatch - mach easier to monitor request/response and header bodies. Also the Testing in AWS allows to create multiple named tests and run them as a suit ( similar to a postman). Looking for the compatible ease of use for Azure APIM

    Currently, EventHub Logging is present. It would be great to log APIM transaction details to Application Insights.
    The current analytics in APIM is good, but it will give more rich experience if the data is present in App.Insights too.
