New log experience in the Azure portal

Published date: August 30, 2018

The Analytics portal in Azure Application Insights and the Advanced Analytics portal in Azure Log Analytics are now part of the Azure portal. 

The new log experience in the Azure portal enables:

  • Multiple tabs—use as many tabs as you want to run multiple queries.

  • Rich visualizations—choose from a variety of charting options.

  • Improved IntelliSense and language auto-completion.

  • Syntax highlighting—read queries more easily.

  • Column selection—select the columns of the results table, and their order.

  • Query explorer—access your saved queries and functions within the editor.

  • Schema view—review the full schema of your data.

  • Share—create links to queries, or pin queries to any shared Azure dashboard.

The new experience is already available in the Azure portal as Logs (preview) under Log Analytics and as Analytics under Application Insights. The current experience will continue to be available as Logs in Log Analytics.

The external Analytics portal remains up and running, for those who prefer to keep using it outside the Azure portal.
