Question

I had made an offhand comment about how I wished that please, please, please could @azure stop logging 404 responses as errors in both App Insights and in kudu where I can look at detailed failed requests. In both places, I have hundreds of errors logged that are either 404 responses to requests i have no control over, say robots.txt or files hackers look for to find known vulnerabilities, or because our APIs listed as dependencies in app insights return 404 responses to API requests legitimately. An example of that is a a call to an api to search for an email, and if it's not found it returns 404. 

We don't want these logged as errors. Logging them is expected, just not as errors. Is there any way to make that happen?

The service is App Services, basically .net core apps running in azure PAAS. 

I am mostly doing this for an enterprise account where my account is well contact me privately for that, but the twitter conversation linked my here so i used my personal business account. 

Thanks, Philip Nelson
