PreemptSdk with Application Insights and an App Service

I wasn’t able to find any documentation on this setting so PreemptSdk I figured I’d write a quick post on it.

This setting when set to 1 will ignore the SDK that’s added as a NuGet package in the application deployed as an Azure Web App and fall back to the extension that’s built into the app service infrastructure. If you are not seeing your logs from your web app written to application insights try changing this app setting to 0 and confirm if it resolves your issue.

Hope this helps others 🙂
