LogLevel values not matching

Hello,

Can you please advise why the values for LogLevel in Microsoft.Extensions.Logging,
do NOT match those in Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.DataContracts?

here is the code:

114743-ms-extensions-log-level.jpg

114725-appinsights-severity-level.jpg

So in my C# code, when I have the statement:

//in the loglevel this is = 3  
logger.LogWarning("User does not have access");  

I was expecting this to show up in Application Insights as 3, but instead it shows as 2.

This can sometimes lead to issues in interpreting logs and usage data.

would appreciate your advice,
thanks

    Hi @simplify3000 ,

    why the values for LogLevel in Microsoft.Extensions.Logging, do NOT match those in Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.DataContracts

    They are two different packages, to the Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.DataContracts.SeverityLevel, it is used by ExceptionTelemetry and TraceTelemetry to identify severity level. And the LogLevel Enum defines logging severity levels.

    From your code and description, I assume you want to enable Application Insights for an ASP.NET Core application and collect logs, right?

    If that is the case, you should use the following package in the Asp.net Core application:

    Then, it will use the Microsoft.Extensions.Logging.LogLevel to set the log level.

    More detail information about using Application Insights with Asp.net Core application, see:
