c# – Telemetry Client won’t log to Application Insights

I’m working in a ASP.net full framework 4.7.2 web application. I’m trying to log to Application Insights. I added the default ApplicationInsights.config.

I wrote some code but I just can’t seem to find out why it doesn’t log to Application Insights.

Can anyone help me or does anyone see my problemn? I checked the InstrumentationKey and that’s set. When I Google on this issue, I just seem to end up at the new ILogger and .net core stuff that won’t work for me.

I’m receiving all metrics just not my custom logging.

private static TraceTelemetry CreateTraceTelemetry(string message, SeverityLevel severityLevel, IDictionary<string, string> parameters = null)
{
    // Create the telemetry
    var traceTelemetry = new TraceTelemetry
    {
        Message = message,
        SeverityLevel = severityLevel,
        // We use local times in stead of UTC
        Timestamp = DateTimeOffset.Now,
    };

    // Add all parameters
    foreach (var keyValuePair in GetProperties(parameters))
    {
        traceTelemetry.Properties.Add(keyValuePair);
    }

    return traceTelemetry;
}

private void InternalLog(string message, SeverityLevel severityLevel, IDictionary<string, string> parameters)
{
    // Create a new client each time
    var telemetryClient = new TelemetryClient(TelemetryConfiguration.Active)
    {
        InstrumentationKey = InstrumentationKey,
    };
    // Add to the buffer queue 
    telemetryClient.TrackTrace(CreateTraceTelemetry(message: message, severityLevel: severityLevel, parameters: parameters));
    // Send logging to Application Insights
    telemetryClient.Flush();
}
