How can we improve Application Insights?

Application Insights in China

Application Insights is unfortunately not availble in Azure China. Are there any plans to support Application Insights in China?
It would be necessary to run our production services in that region.

Application Insights is available in China East 2. While the core service is complete, we will be adding some of the ease of onboarding integrations over the next few months. Initially it will not support the simple steps to add Application Insights from the portal.

Additionally, the outside in Availability Monitoring is not available within China. To monitor via web tests, this currently requires using public Azure.

    can you please give an update when Application insights will be available in China and in which region?

    Silence is deafening on this. Earth to Microsoft, come in please. It's been a year since the last update.
    Has this been abandon? Political problems? What is going on? Give us something! Pretty Please.

    We are desperately waiting for Application Insights in China. 2019Q1 has come and gone but no appinsights unfortunately.. Any new info on when this will be available? We would also be interested in a private or public preview.

    @Ryan O'Connor: We are logging from China to Azure data center in Asia, which apparently works, but has some interruptions.
    Take care that there are no private data somewhere hidden in URL, custom events, these are not allowed to leave China mainland.

    Application Insights in data center in China would be really helpful, so no workaround is needed anymore. We have not found anything official from Microsoft on the setup described above.

    Hi, we were using app insights in china by logging telemetry to the US region. But that seems to have stopped working near the end of March and I can't figure out how to get it working again. Checked api keys, upgraded app insights SDK, checked appinsights.config etc. Is this supported in any way?

    We use Azure Hosting for our solution and we would be very beneficial from having Application Insights in China as we use it in other Azure datacenters.
    Pls make it happen Microsoft team :)
