Can Application Insights be used to gather telemetry from a Classic ASP application? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know Application Insights has an SDK for ASP.NET and Java, but I was curious if it is possible to get Application Insights to collect telemetry from a Classic ASP application. If so, how would you recommend doing this?

  • Hello Chris,

    You can collect Java Script side telemetry with AI JS SDK right away, it should not be a problem with ASP.

    For server-side telemetry, however, you can look at the examples of AI SDK for different technologies here at ApplicationInsights-Home on GitHub. The list of the repositories has the languages/technologies and links to look for their implementation, see if you can leverage some of those.

    ApplicationInsights-Home repo also has a "spec/schema" of the data that the endpoint will accept/require, so you can compose your own JSON object and send it over to AI Endpoint if none of the existing languages/snippets you'll find in the aforementioned repos will help.
