Azure application insights (AI) is a great tool to monitor operations of Safewhere Identify. You can enable AI for your Identify instances in a few simple steps:
Copy its instrumentation key.
Open the web.config files of the Admin and Runtime sites and add a new key to its
appSettingssection:1<add key="ApplicationInsightsInstrumentationKey" value="Your instrumentation key goes here" />
Use your Identify instance and check the AI account to see if data is logged correctly.
Customizing collected data
You can customize what data should be collected by modifying the ApplicationInsights.config file found in the bin folders.
We disable the dependency telemetry by default. Identify, when using SQL Server (not Azure SQL database), uses database dependency for cache invalidation. This means that if the telemetry is turned on, it will collect huge number of dependency events which overshadow all other more important events.
