Using Cloudflare's Universal SSL service, we can provide our website over a safe HTTPS connection. This post walks you through setting up the SSL encrypted connection from client to Cloudflare, to your Azure Web Application using the Full (strict) option and Cloudflare's origin certificates.

Ignoring Umbraco ping.aspx from Azure Application Insights

- Umbraco
Application Performance Monitors provide you with a lot of data, but some of that data may not be relevant. Specifically, in Umbraco there is a page at \umbraco\ping.aspx that is being called frequently to keep the site alive. This is very useful to prevent the site from "dying" (?), but the data for this request isn't that relevant and could skew your statistics. Using Azure Application Insights ITelemetryProcessor, we can prevent ping request from being sent to Azure Application Insights.
