How can we improve Application Insights?

Application insight to get functional at virtual directory level as well at runtime rather than only at root level only.

    Hi Dale,

    Below is the reply from Microsoft Azure support executive

    "I just heard from our product team. Enabling App insights in the Azure portal will enable monitoring only for the primary or root app. Virtual applications will not be monitored. This is by design. As of now, there is no support to monitor the virtual applications by enabling AI (run time) just in the Azure portal.

    If you would like all the virtual applications to be monitored as well, you will have to add the app insights SDK to all the app, as you have already verified this to be working.

    However, enabling AI in portal should not break the other virtual apps. Our product team is still investigating the reason the apps are failing. "

    We have multiple virtual directories under main app service using Application Settings feature. Everything works fine but when we enable application insight from the portal all the virtual directories application started failing complaning about Application insight dll reference missing.

    None of these applications have application insight reference at build time.

    This issue was raised to Microsoft support as well as per there suggestion posted this request. This is the ticket # REG:117052215779654 it has all the details.
