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. Allow alerts to be triggered thru Logic Apps, Functions or Custom Applications

    Allow alerts to be triggered thru Logic Apps, Fucntions or Custom Applications.

    in our case , many monitoring fucntions are creating alerts and posting it to third party system. We r thinking use Azure Alert and Action Groups but can trigger Alerts from Fucntions..

  2. Reduce Spam from Metrics Alerts

    My metrics alerts fire every few minutes, despite previous alerts not being Resolved. A new copy of the same alert should not be able to fire until either the previous alert is Resolved or some configurable amount of time has passed.

  3. Suppress Alerts by Machine or User

    We would like to be able to suppress alerts based on the Computer or TargetUserAccount returned in the search query. For example, if I am monitoring disk space every 60 minutes, I should only receive 1 alert for INSTANCE1 but still be able to alert on other instances entering a low disk space condition the next time the alert runs. Similarly, if I alert on a user account failed login attemps, I should be able to exclude just that user but alert on others the next time that alert is polled.

  4. The alert's resource link to App Insights should take you right to the triggering requests or their timeframe

    In the Alerts UI, the App Insights link for request-based Alerts (i.e Server Response Time) should take you right to the triggering requests or their timeframe, not just the home page for App Insights.

  5. Complex Alert Criteria

    I would like the ability to create more complex alert criteria such as the ratio of one metric against another. For instance, I would like to configure an alert using a "total errors metric" / "total requests metric". If the ratio exceeded some number then the alert would be triggered.

  8. Increase the flexibility in Email/SMS/Push format.

    The SMS/Push notification is really great, but there are no VM name on it. When customers receive a SMS/Push, they only know a alert is fired, but they don't know which VM is facing the issue. They have to open email to check the details.

    The Email/SMS/Push format might not fit customer's need. Maybe Azure could add some boxes let customer themselves to add the items info they need. such as "ComputerName", "ServicesName".

  10. 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

  11. Set schedule for alerts

    We have configured 1000s of alerts for databases performance and response time for webapps. We do all our releases in the late evenings. This means I will get 1000s of emails saying that performance is not good. I would like to be able to set a maintenance window for the alert so that we don't get these alerts during our maintenance window.

  12. Allow webhooks to authenticate via authentication headers

    CUrrently, providing the tokenID of the webhook in the alert URI is not the most secure method of posting - we would like to be able to use authorization headers to authenticate against our webhook and also identify the source of the post.

    Having tokens in the url is really poor as typically logging software will log the request path + parameters (meaning the tokenID will be exposed),

  13. Email or Azure portal notification regarding migration of classic alerts

    Currently, it is hard to know status of migration from classic alerts to new alerts from customer standpoint.

    Is it possible to send emails out to Azure Monitor classic alerts user so that they can get latest information as soon as possible?

  14. allow webhook payload to contain resource tag's or resource group's tags

    our centralized monitoring needs tags of resource but not resource id itself as cloud entities are ephemeral we use tags to identify but right now we are doing this with additional process

  15. There should be a custom JSON payload option for Application Insights alerts.

    There should be a custom JSON payload option for Application Insights alerts.

    it's not actually currently possible to use the custom JSON payload option for Application Insights alerts. It's only possible for Log Analytics alerts.

  17. Link to "Search results" at alert email is malformed when the log query is too long

    When the AppInsights query is log, the "Search result" link to AppInsights log search query included in the alert email is malformed. It looks like the query is cut off hence the URL is not completed.

  18. 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.

  19. Alerts for "Max Request Units" in Cosmos DB

    In the legacy alerts, there was an alert called "Maxs RUs Sec" that would trigger if we hit a certain RU count on Cosmos DB.

    In the new Alerts, we cannot find a way to get the same alert setup. We only see "Total Request Units" however this does not give us what we are looking for.

    Is "Maxs RUs Sec" an upcoming feature? Is there a current workaround for to get this data in an alert?
