Azure Search Alerts
Azure Search should have alerts similar to Azure SQL database. For example, I should be able to set up an alert to warn me if my index is almost full, et.c
Too bad, MS did not think of it or they are after money.

Search still doesn't support storage-based alerts. Our index filling up caused an outage in our production environment, and it'd be really helpful if Azure Search supported these alerts out-of-the-box instead of us having to roll our own custom solution. Has there been any more thought to supporting this?

Still looking for this feature. Azure Monitor should be able to alter us of search indexer failures. This is extremely important and we should be able to create alters for ANY Azure resources.
This has been requested since 2015 and hasn't been implemented? Seems comical that a "production-ready service" would not be able to include alerting on the fact that an indexer failed. We had one failing for months with no one noticing.
This is not ideal, but you can use Get Indexer Status (Azure Search Service REST API) in your monitoring system. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/searchservice/get-indexer-status

Raising Event Grid events (similar to Azure storage and other services) for indexer run completed, errors etc. would be fantastic to drive downstream functionality - like event-triggered Azure Functions.

Please give an update on this.

The indexer fails silently, really need an alert on that, better to be a web hook, so that we can customize how we handle the notification.

Indexer silently fails and is noticed only when issues are reported and has to be manually checked.

Any update on this one Eugene? We are forced to build apps to monitor right now.
Pavan Kumar Jayavarapu commented
Alerts are very much needed for all failure scenarios
Bill McCrary commented
Exactly this - we have to have some way to monitor this backend stuff. Indexers are a no-brainer for our use case, but now I have to manually monitor this job until the platform can do that for me.
I hope these alerts also include things to help us monitor scale, like QPS/response time analytics, possibly a query analyzer like SQL offers to help people identify query improvements.

I would like to see alerts for when a search indexer fails to index documents. Our team went multiple days without realizing that it had stopped working.
