Azure Monitor Container Insights preview version for Azure Red Hat OpenShift v4.x will be retired by 31 May 2022

Published date: 08 December, 2021

Container Insights on Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes is now generally available, and offers greater functionality including:

  • Automatic updates for the container monitoring agent
  • Metric-based alerts and other monitoring features in parity with Container Insights for AKS
  • Improved onboarding via Azure portal, Azure CLI or ARM

With these new functionalities to optimise your business operations, we are retiring Container Insights on Azure Red Hat OpenShift v4.x preview version on 31 May 2022.  We encourage you to make the switch earlier and migrate to using Container Insights on Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes. After 31 May 2022, Container Insights on Azure Red Hat OpenShift v4.x preview version will not be supported. 

Required Action
To minimise disruption to your Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes monitoring, review the steps in this migration document and transition all OpenShift clusters to the Container Insights on Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes before 31 May 2022.
