NOW AVAILABLE: Mastering SharePoint Framework Continuous Monitoring Azure Application Insights Chapter Published

By Last Updated: June 21, 2024 3 minutes read

Today I published a new chapter to the Ultimate bundle of my Mastering the SharePoint Framework course. This new chapter, DevOps: Monitoring & Telemetry with Azure Application Insights, is immediately available to all existing Ultimate bundle subscribers!

Info: DevOps: Monitoring & Telemetry with Azure Application Insights

Development teams and organizations are always looking for ways to automate, streamline, and improve processes related to building software. SharePoint Framework development teams are no different. This process usually brings together development and operations, commonly called DevOps, to continually provide value to customers. DevOps is comprised of multiple practices and components. One aspect of DevOps is continuous monitoring.

In this chapter, you’ll learn how to implement continuous monitoring into your SharePoint Framework projects using Azure Application Insights, one component in the larger Azure Monitor suite or products.

This new chapter is nearly 2 hours long & brings the Ultimate course to 13+ hours of content across 80 lessons. The complete course is over 32 hours long across 246 lessons!

You’ll find the following lessons in this new chapter:

  1. What is DevOps? What is Continuous Monitoring?
  2. Azure Application Insights
  3. SharePoint Framework & Continuous Monitoring
  4. Implement Azure Application Insights in SPFx Projects
  5. DEMO: Implement Continuous Monitoring of SPO Tenants
  6. DEMO: Implement Continuous Monitoring of SPFx components

One of the demos from this chapter shows how to create a SPFx component that you can install in your SPO tenant that will track every time someone in your organization selects one of the buttons in the Microsoft 365 suite bar. This way, you can get detailed analytics on how many users are opening the “waffle” menu, selecting the “help” icon or clicking on the “settings” button.

This is one of two DevOps chapters in the Ultimate bundle. The other DevOps chapter was released two weeks ago: DevOps: CI/CD with GitHub Actions & Azure Pipelines. This milestone means there are just two more chapters to complete before the course is content complete. THe next chapter is about sharing code across SPFx project where I’ll show you how to use library components and npm packages in your SPFx solutions.
