Concerning the following:
I'm looking to understand more about the impacts of migrating existing Application Insights based logs to an Azure Monitor "Log Analytics Workspace" resource. At my company we already have quite a few dashboards, queries, and alerts built against the existing App Insights solution. I fear that the migration of logs will break all of these. For example, "customEvents" will become "AppEvents" and that will may break many things according to this:
Am I understanding correctly? Can anyone advise an upgrade path that won't break things?
When you try to migrate an App Insights resource you get a message that says "Telemetry stored in both locations will be merged when making queries.". Can anyone clarify this? Does that mean we can continue using the old saved queries and dashboards within App Insights and they will continue to function after the migration (but reading the new Workspace)?
Is it possible to start feeding logs to the Workspace in parallel while still feeding them into the old App Insights solution? This would allow us to gradually convert our queries and dashboards to the new Workspace without instantly breaking them all in an instant, and then perform the full migration only when done the updates.
Is there a way to identify all saved log queries and log usages in Azure? We have many teams and resources in use and may have unknown log usages we don't want to miss.

@jknureva Did you manage to find out if classic appinsights based dashboard, alerts, log query alerts etc were working after the migration?

Yes, the classic content continues to work after the migration. I think this functionality will eventually be removed, but for now you can migrate to the new Log Analytics Workspace and continue to use the old interfaces, log queries, dashboards, and so on.
