Azure Alert Management provides a unified alerting experience across all Azure monitoring services including but not limited to Azure Monitor (Metrics and Activity Logs), Application Insights and OMS Log Analytics with support for third party services coming in future.
Azure Alert Management provides features such as alert correlation and state management.
This forum is to discuss anything related to alerting in Azure.

  1. Pre-populate alert text with existing alert properties

    When creating a new alert, pre-populate some of the alert fields such as email subject and body using the other properties of an alert. For example, the body could look like this:

    {resource name} in {resource group} for subscription {subscription name} has triggered the following condition {condition description}.

  2. Role Assignment

    I want to create an e-mail alert whenever Role Assignments are created/modified at the subscription level without using PIM. If anyone has done this or knows how to do it please let me know. I have created numerous alerts during testing (i.e. by doing the action then using the log entry in the activity log to create the alert etc.) but the action doesn't trigger an e-mail alert. (I have used the same action groups that work for other alerts at lower resource group/VM level successfully)

  3. Be able to create metric alerts on non-existing metric

    We want a DevOps approach of monitoring, meaning that monitoring alerts are written in code using ARM templates and are deployed just after Application in the same deployment pipeline.
    When we want to deliver a new feature on our application, behind a new API endpoint, in the application code, we define a new custom metric for it.
    But we are unable to create the alert associated as long as no one used the new endpoint.
    Could you allow the creation of metric-based alerts on non-existing metrics to allow this scenario ?

  4. Ability to increase Aggregation granularity (period) to more than 24 hours

    Currently the maximum value for aggregation granularity is 24 hours. We have a scenario where we would like to have this number way higher, like 48 or 72 hours. It would be great if this can be made available so that we don't have to look around for other alerting platforms.

  6. More information in Alerts email, Activity that failed, parameters, etc.

    I was wondering if it is possible to send more information when a pipeline fails in the Alerts. It would be good to see in the Alert Email, which activity failed within the pipeline as well as any parameters that were passed into the pipeline. This would allow for easier identification of where in the process the pipeline failed, instead of just seeing the pipeline name.

  7. Alert based on "Last Activity Time" for IOT Device

    Looking to create an alert that for an IOT Device when the "Last Activity Time" exceeds a certain time threshold.

    eg; alert when "Last Activity Time" is older than 24 hours

    Would allow us to create email alerts to specific people on particular IOT Devices

  8. Log role deletions to the Activity Logs

    Azure Activity Logs record when roles are assigned to users. We should also be displaying events for when roles are removed from users, and the actor who removed the role.

  9. Include subscription name and ID in the budget alert notification email

    Include subscription name and ID in the budget alert notification email.
    Today it says "Account information" at the bottom section, but below it is blank. Getting multiple budget alert notification makes it impossible to know which subscription it concerns.

  10. Alert rotation on-call scheduling

    Would like the ability to set a schedule of which action group gets the alert. This would allow for a rotating on-call response. Action group 1 gets the notification on week 1, Action group 2 gets the notification on week 2, etc. This could also be beneficial for hourly rotation (day shift / night shift). Currently using PagerDuty for this, but the integration with Log Analytic alerts is terrible.

  11. Multiple target resources

    Currently there is possibility to choose only one and existed target resource per alert. It would be very handy if I can specify multiple resource of the same type and also apply it for non-existed resource that will be automatically applied after resource is created.

  12. Action group - Let us control name and region for Resouce group

    Let us control name and region for Resouce group created along with a Action Groip.

    The default resource group created can't be renamed, and the region is hard coded to east us (if I'm not mistaken). It will fail even, if your'e having Azure Policies to block resource group creation in certain regions. There should be better logic involved in choosing default region. Or better: Let us choose.

  14. Add ARM template support for Azure Monitor Scheduled Query Rule export when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade

    It would be very helpful when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade in the Azure portal if we could export the ARM template for the Scheduled Query Rule that's about to be created, similar to the way we can export the "Automation Script" when creating other resources.

    This would be useful for helping us automated our monitoring in ARM templates as part of our CI/CD process.

  15. Feature of testing if action groups would be sent correctly in Azure Monitor.

    When I create an alert rule in Azure Monitor to send an email, I want to test if the email would be sent and received correctly.

    Now, it doesn't seem to have this feature in Azure Monitor.
    So it is better for me if there is this feature.

    Hello,

    I’m reaching out to let you know that we’ve started designing this feature.

    We’re planning to conduct a usability study in the coming weeks to test this feature’s UX, and looking for participants to take part and help shape this feature.

    If you’re interested in participating in this study, please reach out to me at harelbr@microsoft.com

    Thanks!

  16. Add New Zealands country code 64 for action group SMS alerts

    Add New Zealands country code 64 for action group SMS alerts as currently the only option if for members to get emails and we have to sign up to pay for a 3rd party application to get the SMS functionality we need. Would like to have this all handed in Azure in the future.

  17. Allow automatic deactivation of Custom LogSearch Alerts

    We would like to see is to have a way to automatically deactivate custom Log Search alerts when the alert condition stops being true. For instance, if we define an alert as a Custom Log Search with the following query:

    requests
    | where resultCode == “404”

    Where threshold is greater than 100, when the number of 404 goes above 100, then the alert system sends an activation request and once the number of 404 goes below 100, then it sends a deactivation request. That should allow for a new parameter so it can be injected in a custom JSON webhook…

  18. 'Run Now' on Rules Management defintion

    While configuring an alert in the 'Rules Management' blade, it would be useful to 'Run now' which would trigger the alert, perhaps with sample payload for fields that would be calculated by a query / metric.

    This would be useful to ensure that the setup of the alert and any actions groups defined are correctly triggered - particularly for cases with web hook integrations and any downstream systems.

    This would allow a quick sense check + give the user confidence that any integration they have defined is going to be triggered correctly when data triggers the rule

  20. Localization an Alert E-mail

    Currently an alert e-mail is in English only. For much more cloud operates can easily understand the alert e-mail, I hope it could be configurable the alert e-mail in each languages.
