If you’re still using the older version of Application Insights in the Visual Studio Online portal, you’ll have to update your application to use the new version hosted in the Azure Preview portal by October 15.
We announced in an August blog post on Azure Blogs that Application Insights has transitioned from the Visual Studio Online portal to being one of the services offered in the new Azure Preview portal. You can read more details there on our transition schedule and check out our series of short videos describing the new experience. We continue to invest in Application Insights features and functionality in our Azure portal experience, and hit a milestone in April when we announced our Public Preview and furthermore in June when we launched our Pricing Tiers.
Retiring Application Insights in VSO Portal
On October 15, 2015 Application Insights in the VSO portal will move to a read-only mode. It will not accept new data from the MMA agent or our telemetry SDKs and no longer execute web tests configured in the VSO portal. You will still be able to use Application Insights in the VSO portal to view data collected prior to October 15.
Application Insights in the VSO portal will be retired on November 30, 2015.
