Public Preview: Azure Container Apps OpenTelemetry Agent support

Published date: March 27, 2024

Azure Container Apps now supports a managed OpenTelemetry agent. Available in public preview, this feature allows you to use open-source standards to send your app’s data without setting up an OTLP collector yourself.  You can use the managed agent to choose where to send logs, metrics, and traces.

When this feature is enabled, a managed OpenTelemetry agent is enabled in the Container Apps environment. The agent collects and exports data. Data can currently be sent to Azure Monitor Application Insights (logs, traces), 3rd party product Datadog (metrics, traces), and any generic OTLP-configured endpoint (logs, metrics, traces). You can currently use ARM/Bicep and CLI commands to manage the agent. Standard usage fees apply.
