Monitor logic apps with Azure Log Analytics

To monitor and get richer debugging details about your logic apps, turn on Azure Log Analytics when you create your logic app. Log Analytics provides diagnostics logging and monitoring for your logic apps when you install the Logic Apps Management solution in the Azure portal. This solution also provides aggregated information for your logic app runs with specific details such as status, execution time, resubmission status, and correlation IDs. This article shows how to turn on Log Analytics so you can view runtime events and data for your logic app runs.

To turn on Azure Log Analytics for existing logic apps, follow these steps to turn on diagnostic logging and send logic app runtime data to Log Analytics.

Note

This page previously described steps for how to perform these tasks with the Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS), which is retiring in January 2019, replaces those steps with Azure Log Analytics instead.

Prerequisites

Before you start, you need a Log Analytics workspace. Learn how to create a Log Analytics workspace.

Turn on diagnostics logging when creating logic apps

  1. In Azure portal, create a logic app. Choose Create a resource > Integration > Logic App.

    Create a logic app

  2. Under Create logic app, perform these tasks as shown:

    1. Provide a name for your logic app and select your Azure subscription.

    2. Create or select an Azure resource group.

    3. Set Log Analytics to On.

    4. From the list Log Analytics workspace list, select the workspace where you want to send data for your logic app runs.

      Create logic app

      After you finish this step, Azure creates your logic app, which is now associated with your Log Analytics workspace. Also, this step also automatically installs the Logic Apps Management solution in your workspace.

    5. When you're done, choose Create.

  3. To view your logic app runs, continue with these steps.

Install Logic Apps Management solution

If you already turned on Log Analytics when you created your logic app, skip this step. You already have the Logic Apps Management solution installed.

  1. In the Azure portal, select All services. In the search box, find "log analytics", and select Log Analytics.

    Select "Log Analytics"

  2. Under Log Analytics, find and select your Log Analytics workspace.

    Select your Log Analytics workspace

  3. Under Get started with Log Analytics > Configure monitoring solutions, choose View solutions.

    Choose "View solutions"

  4. On the Overview page, choose Add, which opens the Management Solutions list. From that list, select Logic Apps Management.

    Select "Logic Apps Management"

    If you can't find the solution, at the bottom of the list, choose Load more until the solution appears.

  5. Choose Create, confirm the Log Analytics workspace where you want to install the solution, and then choose Create again.

    Choose "Create" for "Logic Apps Management"

    If you don't want to use an existing workspace, you can also create a new workspace at this time.

    When you're done, the Logic Apps Management solution appears on the Overview page.

View logic app run information

After your logic app runs, you can view the status and count for those runs on the Logic Apps Management tile.

  1. Go to your Log Analytics workspace, and open the Overview page. Choose Logic Apps Management.

    Logic app run status and count

    Here, your logic app runs are grouped by name or by execution status. This page also shows details about failures in actions or triggers for the logic app runs.

    Status summary for your logic app runs

  2. To view all the runs for a specific logic app or status, select the row for a logic app or a status.

    Here is an example that shows all the runs for a specific logic app:

    View runs for a logic app or a status

    This page has these advanced options:

    • Tracked properties:

      This column shows tracked properties, which are grouped by actions, for the logic app. To view the tracked properties, choose View. To search the tracked properties, use the column filter.

      View tracked properties for a logic app

      Any newly added tracked properties might take 10-15 minutes before they appear first time. Learn how to add tracked properties to your logic app.

    • Resubmit: You can resubmit one or more logic app runs that failed, succeeded, or are still running. Select the checkboxes for the runs that you want to resubmit, and choose Resubmit.

      Resubmit logic app runs

  3. To filter these results, you can perform both client-side and server-side filtering.

    • Client-side filter: For each column, choose the filters that you want, for example:

      Example column filters

    • Server-side filter: To choose a specific time window or to limit the number of runs that appear, use the scope control at the top of the page. By default, only 1,000 records appear at a time.

      Change the time window

  4. To view all the actions and their details for a specific run, select a row for a logic app run.

    Here is an example that shows all the actions for a specific logic app run:

    View actions for a logic app run

  5. On any results page, to view the query behind the results or to see all results, choose See All, which opens the Log Search page.

    See All on Results pages

    On the Log Search page,

    • To view the query results in a table, choose Table.

    • To change the query, you can edit the query string in the search bar. For a better experience, choose Advanced Analytics.

      View actions and details for a logic app run

      On the Azure Log Analytics page, you can update queries and view the results from the table. This query uses Kusto query language, which you can edit if you want to view different results.
