  • Hello Priya, 

    Thanks for reaching out to us. 

    Yes, you can use Application Insights for Monitoring Sql Queries by setting the following : 

    Grant modify access to IIS_IUSRS group for these paths:


    Then, Application Insights  will start to record SQL queries.

    You also can do this via the command line:

    icacls %WINDIR%\Temp /t /c /grant IIS_IUSRS:(OI)(CI)M
    icacls %WINDIR%\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local /t /c /grant IIS_IUSRS:(OI)(CI)M

    Also take a look at this thread for more info - AI Tracking SQL Queries

    I hope this information helps.
