For more information, see Logstash reference Working with plugins.

Configuration

Required Parameters

ikey

The Application Insights Instrumentation key.

ai_type

The type of Application Insights event: "trace", "metric" and "event" are supported

Optional Parameters

ai_message_field

Specifies the name of the event field to be used as the Message field of the Application Insights trace. If not specified, Message in Application Insights will be "Null".

Specifies the name of the event field to be used as the Properties field of the Application Insights trace. The type of the field needs to be Hash. If not specified, all fields in event will be used.

ai_severity_level_field

Specifies the name of the event field to be used as the Severity level of the Application Insights trace. If not specified, all traces will be "Informational".

ai_severity_level_mapping

Specifies how to map the values read from ai_severity_level_field to Application Insights severity level. This is a hash containing the possible values from event as keys and corresponding Application Insights Severity Level constants as values.

See example below for how to map Azure diagnostics log level values to Application Insights severity values.

ai_metrics_names

Specifies the names of the event fields to be used as metrics name; the value of each field specified will be reported as metric value. If not specified, no metric will be reported.

If this is set to True, the plugin sends telemetry to Application Insights immediately; otherwise the plugin respects production sending policies defined by other properties.
