Hello,

I have a question about this article: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/retirement-notice-transition-to-custom-availability-tests-in-application-insights/

Recently I started to work with the customer who uses Multi-step web test. Every 3 months I must update some data in the .webtest file and of course re-upload it to the Azure (Availability test page).

There is a comment "You won’t be able to create new multi-step web tests after 31 August 2023". So my question is: will I be able to update existing Availability test after 31 August 2023?

I'd like to understand how much time do we have to replace current solution with something else.

Thanks in advance,

Sergey.
