Multi-step web tests will be retired on 31 August 2024

Published date: 25 August, 2021

Multi-step web tests depend on Visual Studio webtest files, and it has been announced that Visual Studio 2019 will be the last version with webtest functionality. Therefore, we are retiring multi-step web tests within Application Insights on 31 August 2024.  
 
We recommend using TrackAvailability() to submit custom availability tests instead of multi-step web tests. With TrackAvailability() and custom availability tests, you can run tests on any compute you want and use C# to easily author new tests.  

You won’t be able to create new multi-step web tests after 31 August 2023.
