Extension publishers can get telemetry about issues in their extension before partners and customers report it.

Feature details

You can now add an instrumentation key for Azure Application Insights in the app.json file for an extension.

When events such as the following happen in code units that are part of the extension, then this signal will be sent to the Azure Application Insights account that has the supplied instrumentation key:

  • Long-running SQL queries
  • Report execution
  • Extension updates
  • Update errors due to exceptions thrown in upgrade code in the extension
  • Web service requests
