Is there a way to get notified by Azure ApplicationInsights when a new exception appears?

We are using Application Insights by Azure. At the moment I have to manually check the exceptions after each deployment to see if a new one appeared. Has anyone figured out a way to get notified (via Azure alert) once a new exception appears? For example, other error trackers like Sentry support this.


  • We did a deployment at 15:15
  • A previously unknown exception appears at 15:17
  • An email is sent to me with content "New exception X appeared in project Y"

Here is a screenshot demonstrating this a bit more clearly:

    Yo can create an alert for each condition, if you see the blade on your screenshot, you can see the "Alerts" under Monitoring, go there and set your alert.

    This is a tutorial to create an alert

    Hope this helps,

    After much research, I have concluded that this is currently not possible.

    1.5 years have passed. Is there a way now to detect new exceptions and have alerts firing for such?
