We are working with one of our application teams to utilize the Azure PaaS OneAgent with their application services. The application team is using Azure Application Insights as one of their developer tools, and our agent is providing a warning message that Azure Application Insights "may" conflict with the PaaS Agent.
My client is wondering, are there any features that are part of the Azure App Insights, that will not conflict with our agent? If we have to continue to allow the use of the Azure App Insights, they want to know what functionalities can be used without breaking the OneAgent.
If anyone has any experience with this, or has any details I can provide to my client?

In general Azure Application Insights (as I know) are using code instrumentation as well. Using One agent together with them may produce overhead for application. It’s never good idea to have multiple technologies that are making code instrumentation. (It may work properly, but nobody will guarantee that this will be always like that)
