Microsoft Azure Application Insights integration for Flask.

Project description


Flask extension for Microsoft Azure Application Insights.

Make your Flask application able to send tracking information to an Application Insights Azure component.

Build Status codecov


  • flask>=1.0.2
  • applicationinsights==0.11.6

If you are encountering locale issues with application insights, please check this hack:


Retrieve package from pypi:

pip install flask_applicationinsights

Instrumentation key can be provided programmatically as well as by environment variable or flask configuration key. Key name is APPINSIGHTS_INSTRUMENTATION_KEY.


Will track all requests (succeeded or failed) to your application insight referenced by its instrumentation key.

from flask import Flask
from flask_applicationinsights import ApplicationInsights

app = Flask(__name__)

insight = ApplicationInsights(instrumentation_key='<yours>')

def index():
    return 'HIT'


You can also add custom properties or measurements to each tracked request by using special decorators.


insight = ApplicationInsights(...)
def custom_properties(req: Request, resp: Response):
    return {
        'req_pragma': req.headers.get('Pragma'),
        'resp_charset': resp.charset


Not open yet due to initial WIP.
