Public preview: New Application Insights standard test for synthetic monitoring
Published date: July 14, 2021
URL ping test in Azure Monitor Application Insights has long been a simple way for you to monitor your endpoints. We are now enhancing its capability with a new type of availability test "standard test" to meet most of your single request test needs.
The standard test can run any single request test required and is a major upgrade on the existing URL ping test. It has the reactive SSL check but also a proactive SSL certificate check. You can set a time period before a certificate expires to be alerted that it will need to be updated. The standard test also has a dedicated configuration section for more advanced tests, can be deployed up to 16 locations. This test will have an associated cost per configured test execution, once it becomes generally available.
