Overview

The Azure AppInsight output will stream analytics and insights to your Azure endpoint.


Review Sample Configuration

The following sample configuration displays an output without the name of the organization-level integration:

- name: app-insights
   type: azure
   endpoint: https://dc.services.visualstudio.com/v2/track
   api_key: '{{ Env "TEST_AZURE_APIKEY" }}'

- name: app-insights-with-base-type
   type: azure
   endpoint: https://dc.services.visualstudio.com/v2/track
   api_key: '{{ Env "TEST_AZURE_APIKEY" }}'
   base_type: EventData

Review Parameters

Review the following parameters that you can configure in the Edge Delta App.


name

Required

Enter a descriptive name for the output or integration.

For outputs, this name will be used to map this destination to a workflow.

Review the following example:

name: app-insights

integration_name

Optional

This parameter refers to the organization-level integration created in the Integrations page.

If you need to add multiple instances of the same integration into the config, then you can add a custom name to each instance via the name parameter. In this situation, the name should be used to refer to the specific instance of the destination in the workflows.

Review the following example:

integration_name: orgs-azureappinsight

type

Required

Enter azure.

Review the following example:

type: azure

api_key

Optional

Enter the AppInsight's instrumentation key.

Review the following example:

api_key: '{{ Env "TEST_AZURE_APIKEY" }}'

endpoint

Optional

Enter the Azure AppInsight endpoint.

Review the following example:

endpoint: https://dc.services.visualstudio.com/v2/track

base_type

Optional

This parameter indicates where to funnel data. 

To funnel data into a tracing index, enter MessageData.

To funnel data into an event index, enter EventData.

Review the following example:

base_type: EventData

features

Optional

This parameter defines which data types to stream to the destination.

If you do not provide a value, then all will be set.

To learn more, review the Review Feature Types section in Stream Outputs and Integrations Overview.

Review the following example:

features: metric

buffer_ttl

Optional

Enter a length of time to retry failed streaming data.

After this length of time is reached, the failed streaming data will no longer be tried.

Review the following example:

buffer_ttl: 2h

buffer_path

Optional

Enter a folder path to temporarily store failed streaming data.

The failed streaming data will be retried until the data reaches its destinations or until the Buffer TTL value is reached.

If you enter a path that does not exist, then the agent will create directories, as needed.

Review the following example:

buffer_path: /var/log/edgedelta/pushbuffer/

buffer_max_bytesize

Optional

Enter the maximum size of failed streaming data that you want to retry.

If the failed streaming data is larger than this size, then the failed streaming data will not be retried.

Review the following example:

buffer_max_bytesize: 100MB
