Using Microsoft Azure Application Insights with Orchestrator (substituting Event Log)

Hi there. I was wondering if anyone has been able to hook up Azure Application Insights from Orchestrator as a log source. I am quite keen on this, especially for Orchestrator hosted on Azure App Service - simply because it could be a mission (still very much possible) to look at Event Logs of an App Service host under BAU administration mode.

Theoretically, NLog has a package for AppInsights which should do it with a bit of Web.config customisation (and I am about to embark on that journey). But would be great to hear from someone who might have cracked the equation already.

I am interested in this as well, I there anyone who has reached out to you or have you done it in the meantime?

Hey mate @Fritsie , I did not hear back on this yet. However, I should mention that the new Azure Marketplace installer does create an AppInsight resource - so it would be interesting to see what it brings to the table from an observability standpoint. I’d be raising support ticket(s) to understand this more, will report back.


I have implemented this using App Service and Application Insights.
I wrote a post in my blog about this, you will find details on how to implement it there.

Hopefully this helps.
