Bridging the Gap: Azure App Insights to On-Prem Elastic Stack

Zach Gardner Azure, Development Technologies, Tutorial 1 Comment

Recently, while working for a large healthcare client in New York, I ran into an interesting problem that had slim literature on how to solve it.

Our application is primarily on-prem, but it does leverage Azure for a few functions that are easier to solve in a cloud-native environment. We wanted to be able to monitor those functions using the same Elastic Stack that we use to monitor our on-prem application.

I was tasked with building a bridge between where our functionality logs to in Azure (App Insights), and getting that securely back into our Elasticsearch instance that powers our Elastic Stack.

This blog post will detail the solution I landed on. I hope it will be useful to others that need to solve a similar problem!
