Generally Available – Application Insights Integration

Today we are excited to announce the General Availability of Azure API Management (APIM) integration with Azure Application Insights (AI)! This feature lets customers add APIM telemetry to AI and use AI’s rich set of capabilities to monitor and troubleshoot their APIs. 

With general availability, in addition to a host of stability fixes, there are additional updates:

  • Diagnostic settings at the global level  (i.e., for all APIs) and individual API level
  • Fixed rate sampling to help reduce the volume of telemetry sent from APIM to AI
  • Option to always send telemetry when there is an error or exception, regardless of sampling settings
  • Log headers and payload

If you participated in the preview of this feature, the global-level logging will continue to work. You can go to APIs -> All APIs -> Settings -> Diagnostics Logs to change the settings.
