When you provision a new Azure Logic Apps (Standard) instance, you will have the opportunity to create/use an Application Insights instance.
Application Insights will provide a datastore for analytics related to your Azure Logic Apps (Standard) instance. This includes runtime telemetry that can be used to determine the overall health of your interfaces that are hosted within your Azure Logic Apps (Standard) instance.

One of the other benefits of connecting your Azure Logic Apps (Standard) instance to Application Insights is the ability to visualize the performance of your interfaces from an Application Map. To access the Application Map, navigate to your Application Insights instance and then click on Application map.

When the Application map loads, you will see a visual representation of your Azure Logic Apps (Standard) instance and all the various endpoints that it connects to. Some of the data you can expect to see includes the number of times a particular endpoint has been called, the latency involved and whether it failed or succeeded.

Something that you may notice is that the Azure managed connectors don’t immediately show up. Well technically they are there but are behind the shape that represents API Hubs which is the platform component that provides connectivity to all these managed connectors. If we click on that icon, we will see some additional details fly out from the right pane.
Within this view we can look at the individual operations that have been called and their related performance characteristics.

Conclusion

By enabling Application Insights for your Azure Logic Apps (Standard) instance, you can really take advantage of powerful telemetry. While the Application Map is an interesting feature, there are additional use cases that can be addressed like running Kusto queries, building custom dashboards and much more.
