A few days ago, i received an Email from Microsoft that announces the retirement of URL Ping Test in Azure Monitor.
On 30 September 2026, the URL ping test capability of the application insights feature of Azure Monitor will be retired
There is some guidance available: Migrate availability tests
I’ve set up a Azure Monitor with URL Ping a few months ago.
That’s how the URL ping looks like
I’ve added a new Standard test
And deleted the URL ping test
That’s the result. Looks fine
