So watching this weeks community standup ASP.NET Community Standup - December 11, 2018 - 2.2 Release Party! and Scott Hanselman shows how to make a dashboard for your application insights resource in no time.

How do I make a dashboard for Application Insights?

Basically head over to the (1) Azure Portal and (2) find your resource, I’ve opened up my blog


Once open click the (3) Application Dashboard button


What this will do for us is take all the important information from our resource and make a dashboard for us like below


The dashboard is also shared with other admins of the subscription


That was much quicker to make than the previous Blog dashboard that I made and has a lot more meaningful data on it Smile

I plan on writing a bunch of online tools and sharing the code for how I made those tools. If you have any feedback you can ping me on Twitter (@GordonBeeming) or mail me [email protected].
