Acquia Insight


EOL notice! Acquia Insight will reach end-of-life on March 15, 2022. For more information, see Retiring the Acquia Insight Score feature.

Acquia Insight is a suite of tools that evaluates your website’s performance, security, and search engine optimization to help you monitor and optimize your websites. Insight uses the Acquia Connector module on your website to connect to the Acquia Insight service on a regular schedule, sending up-to-date information about the website’s code and configuration.

Acquia Insight scores for each environment’s active domain are displayed on your subscription’s Environments page.


Acquia Insight is a legacy service and offered with limited troubleshooting support.

About the Acquia Connector

Before you can use Acquia Insight, you must install and enable the latest stable release of Acquia Connector. The Acquia Connector module is a Drupal module suite enabling Drupal websites to exchange information with the Acquia Insight service. It consists of the following modules:

  • Acquia Connector: Provides secure communication between your Drupal website and Acquia to monitor uptime, check for updates, and collect website information. For details about what information the Acquia Connector sends, see Sending information to Acquia Insight.
  • Acquia Search: (Drupal 7) Gets you started with Search, Acquia’s plug-and-play search service. The Acquia Insight module is divided into separate Acquia Agent and Acquia Site Profile Information modules.

For more information about installing the Acquia Connector and how it works, see:

Known issues in Acquia Insight

Modules appear to be disabled despite being enabled on the site in Drupal 9

Modules appear to be disabled despite being enabled on the site in Drupal 9. This issue occurs when a module doesn’t have the core property: core_version_requirement in its info.yml file. This change is introduced for core modules in Drupal 9.

Any module that adopts the new core_version_requirement property and doesn’t declare core, is impacted. Acquia’s NSPI service that produces the Insight report, doesn’t know what to do with such modules. Hence, the service ignores the modules.

Acquia recommends that you ignore the Insight reporting of such modules.
