Update: Friday, 18 January 2019 21:30 UTC

We continue to investigate issues within Application Insights. Impacted customers must apply workaround to resolve failures in export like creating new container, reconfiguring and after some buffer time go back to old container. We will keep investigating for any failures even after applying this workaround.
  • Work Around: Creating new container, reconfigure Export with new container, wait for status to turn green and go back to old container.
