Application Insights Connector – What happened to it?
In this post, Azure Consultant Nasir Syed explains integration preferences between Log Analytics and Application Insights.
Application Insights Connector provided a way to include Application Insights data into a Log Analytics workspace. This data duplication was required to enable visibility across infrastructure and application data. With Application Insights extended data retention support in March, 2019 and the ability to perform cross-resource queries in addition to being able to view multiple Azure Monitor Application Insights resources, there is no need to duplicate data from your Application Insights resources and send it to Log Analytics. Furthermore, the Connector only sent a subset of the applications properties to Log Analytics, while the cross-resource queries gives you enhanced flexibility.
As such, Application Insights Connector has now been deprecated and removed from Azure Marketplace along with OMS portal deprecation on March 30, 2019.
