How to disable Application Insights in Power BI Report Server on premise?



we installed the Power BI Report Server on premise, published a Power BI report to the server and tried to integrate the report in our application using an IFrame.


During the execution of the report we saw that a http request to the following URL // has been made. I searched for this link or part of it within the configuration files and didn't find a setting for it. Within some dlls we found some information around "Application Insights" using this URL.


How can we disable this Application Insights Feature of Power BI report Server? It is not allowed in our environment to send data to a software vendor.


Thanks and best regards
