As organizations run more business-critical automation workloads on Microsoft Power Platform, it is critical to have deeper visibility into the performance of automations. Today, we are excited to announce the public preview of a new feature – integration of cloud flow telemetry data with Azure Application Insights. With this new capability, administrators can connect their Microsoft Power Platform environment to an Azure Application Insights instance for advanced diagnostic and monitoring of their automations.
Customers can now leverage Azure’s market-leading application performance monitoring (APM) capabilities to diagnose and monitor their workflows running on Microsoft Power Automate. Customers would be able to leverage the out-of-the box capabilities available on Application Insights and directly use it to analyze cloud flow telemetry. This includes metrics dashboards, out-of-the box and custom alerts, performance diagnostics and custom analysis of cloud flow telemetry via log analytics.
Customers can select to emit cloud flow runs, triggers and action-level data from an environment to application insights. The connection can be set up in just a few steps from the Power Platform Admin Center, and the step-by-step wizard instructions can be found here.
Customers can connect multiple environments into a single instance of Application Insights. If you do not have an Application Insights instance already set up, you can do so by following the steps here.
Once the connection is set up, all the events should start flowing from the power platform environment to the application insights instance. On the Application Insights side, cloud flow runs data are stored in the requests table, and the triggers and action level data are stored in the dependencies table. You can then perform monitoring, alerting, custom debugging etc. from Application Insights. Step-by-step instructions on how to diagnose the cloud flow telemetry data are documented here.
We’re excited to bring this detailed and holistic visibility of Power Automate telemetry at scale. We appreciate the feedback we’ve received from our private preview participants and are excited to open this capability to everyone.
Please feel free to provide your questions and feedback in the Power Automate community. Happy Automating!
