Generally Available: Managed identity authentication in Azure Monitor container insights

Veröffentlichungsdatum: 13 Juni, 2023

Following our public preview announcement last August, we are happy to announce the General Availability of Managed Identity authentication in Container Insights. 

Managed Identity is a secure and simplified authentication model where our monitoring agent uses the cluster’s managed identity to send data to the Azure Monitor backend. It replaces the existing legacy certificate-based local authentication and removes the requirement of adding a monitoring metrics publisher role to the cluster. Both system-assigned identity and user-assigned identity are supported.

Managed Identity will now also be the default authentication mechanism for Container Insights going forward and customers are encouraged to migrate to Managed identity authentication.
