ASP.NET MVC logs appear in live metrics but not in performance tab RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have ASP.NET MVC webapp setup (.net core 2.2), and configured to use Application Insights.

    I have included the following nuget packages:

    - Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.AspNetCore 2.14.0

    - Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.ApplicationInsights 2.14.0


    In Startup.cs, I have configured the following:


    public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)


          // etc




    I have configured the application insights instrumentation key in the appsettings as follows:


      "ApplicationInsights": {

        "InstrumentationKey": "<my-instrumentation-key>"



    When a request is made to the webapp, it appears in the live metrics stream.

    However, when trying to dive into the logs via the Peformance tab, I cannot see them appear. In other web apps that I have made in the past, I can now drill into the logs, API requests and all their details. Here, I cannot see them for some reason.

    Any guidance on what I might be missing in order for the logs to appear here? I need to be able to look a the details of the API requests, their full request URI, and possible stack traces in case a request raises an error. 


    Thanks you,
