  1. Alert metric Average Response Time does not graph right AND/OR I am getting false sent alerts frequently

    Alerts for a sites average response time are constantly hit and there is no conditions to be found... I'd presume its my own ignorance, but the graph says all is well and New Relic says the same when comparing apples to apples. Which leads me to suspect as a tool looking at the past 5 mins as a threshold be is 3, 10, or 60... its simply being thrown constantly and not actually accurate.

    See attached. The graphs are showing no such data occurrence. Yet the alerts keep firing off.

    Let me know if you need more info. Happy to…

  2. Feature Enhancements - Metric alert multiple dimensions request

    Hi team,

    While using Azure monitor during the development, we found there are lots of limitations/by design in the metric alert dimension feature, please help have a look and share with us if any plan to enhance or release the features:

    Background:
    Our objective is to try make alerts better by looking at two metrics at the same time. This can be achieved by using ‘Split by dimension’ already available in Azure Monitor.
    Both the below options will allow us to configure Azure monitor in such a way that criticality of the alert is decided within and we don’t get…

  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. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. Azure monitor alert rules should allow importing queries from analytics explorer

    It would be awesome if there was a mechanism to allow importing queries from Analytics Explorer into Azure monitor alert rules.

    Today, while creating these alert rules, we have to copy-paste queries from analytics explorer. This means one has to (potentially) maintain several versions of the same query.

  8. Support alerting on a filtered metric

    I'd like to receive alert by specific api controller response time such as '~/api/viewpost > 3sec'

    We can monitor it, but cannot create an alert rule.

    This request is similar to the link, and your team closed due to duplicate issue. But the link is broken; https://feedback.azure.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/9702621-alert-can-be-fired-with-metric-performance-counter

  10. Dynamic tresholds on metrics custom logs

    Dynamic tresholds can only be used on the OOTB logs of Application insights. When trying to add them on custom logs, this isn't possible. Only static tresholds can be used there.

  11. Adding more specific failure types as the dimension for synapse workspace pipeline runs

    Currently when you try to create an alert for synapse workspace pipeline runs ended, you have three dimensions to be set as the condition, result, failure type and pipeline name. However for the failure type, there are only two types, none and user error. As far as I am concerned, this failure type dimension will be useless if it only has these two categories.
    Thus we were wondering if it is possible to add more specific failure types.
    Any help would be appreciated! Thank you in advance.

  12. ADF pipeline alert configuration- Custom Alert message feature & edit mail configuration

    In ADF alert configuration there should be option to customize the mail alerts body. Also there should be option to modify existing alerts configuration-> Email list (currently once mail id is set we can't edit the same)

  13. Allow more values in Frequency of evaluation

    Right now the frequency of evaluation is only up to 1 hour. For some of our use cases it's too frequent. It would be great if it allows to select values for every hour up to 24 hours.

  14. Allow every hour aggregation granularity period

    Right now the aggregation granularity has very limited allowed values. If we want to aggregate for last 4 hours then its not possible. At least it should be available for every hour period up to 24 hours.

  15. Add dynamic alerts for resources without having to create that resource first.

    It should be possible to create an alert for future workloads. Currently we can't create a dynamic alert on SQL CPU usage for example. And this is per region we have to create if we want dynamic. If we are preparing a new environment for customers we should not have to create dummy resources just to add an alert.

  16. 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}.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Alert email to use the name of the alert in the Email Subject

    We are forced to give Alerts specific names because they cannot be duplicated, so naturally, we give them names that relate to the resource being alerted against. This "naming convention" is a great help when viewing all active alerts because we can tell at a glance which resource is affected on narrow long screens (90degree flipped screen). But the email we receive does not mention the name of the Alert anywhere. Would be really really helpful to use the Alert name in the subject line, for reading emails from mobile by Subject.

  20. Activity log alert severity

    Currently we can only set alert severity for metric alert and log query alert. For activity log alert, it is not supported to change the severity, and is default to 4 - Verbose. We would like to change the severity of activity log alert as well.
