Azure Monitor- Alert Management

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. Improve acknowledgement experience

    Acknowledging large numbers of alerts is a painfully manual process.
    Portal-based grouping or select-all options would be helpful, as would an API-based function (using Powershell or Azure CLI).

  2. Better Alert / Action Group relationships within Portal UI

    From the 'edit action group' blade (selecting an action group from MicrosoftAzureMonitoring/NotificationReceiversDetailBlade/queryInputs) it would be useful to have a link to a view that shows all of the alerts that currently use the action group

    A summary of that count could also be useful on the manage actions view (https://portal.azure.com/#blade/MicrosoftAzureMonitoring/NotificationGroupsBlade/queryInputs) i.e. a column 'used by x alerts')

    There's a disconnect between alerts and action groups at the moment, navigation and the relationships between them should be easier to understand and manage

  3. Metric alert lifecycle on 30 days expiration

    Currently, Azure Monitor removes alerts after 30 days. For metric alerts, it creates the situation where active (fired) alerts can be removed by the system BEFORE it get into resolved state. This leads to condition when there is no visual indicators in the UI about unhealthy state of the metric. At the same time, Azure Monitor does not fire new notifications as it considers that underlying metric conditions didn't change.
    This gap in the Azure monitoring experience has to be addressed. Ideally, I would love to see next behavior. When system removes 30-days old alert with "Fired" monitor condition, it…

  4. Manage Action Rules via automation tools

    Action rules are great, but I don't see any documentation on how to manage them via CLI, ARM template, and/or Azure PowerShell. This is important so we can update action rules as part of our deployment process. Currently, every time we add a new resource group, it requires action rules to be updated, as different groups of engineers are responsible for different resource groups. This is something that can easily be forgotten, and as such, the ability to manage it programmatically is important.

  5. Add ability to Resolve Query Based Alert

    Hi. As for today, query based alert cannot be Resolved at all. Not manually and not by a "good" result. For example, a metric measurement alert rule Fired alert when "Greater Then 10". When the result is less or equal than 10, alert should be Resolved.

  6. ADF Alerts & metrics for only failed

    Right now, if I configure an alert under 'Alerts & metrics' for 'Failed pipeline runs metrics'. This means I need to get notification only when pipeline get failed, and it work as expected, true.

    But it also send notification for resolved. It is kind of misguided notification. Because no-one resolved that pipeline issue.

    For now there is no way I can configure an alert which notify my developers only when pipeline gets failed.

  9. BUG: Switching Log Alert API Preference Changes All Alert Rule Names to GUIDs

    Followed this guidance:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/platform/alerts-log-api-switch#process-of-switching-from-legacy-log-alerts-api

    Seemed safe enough, but this part is totally incorrect:
    The process of moving alert rules from legacy Log Analytics Alert API does not involve changing your alert definition, query, or configuration in any way. Your alert rules and monitoring are unaffected and the alerts will not stop or be stalled, during or after the switch. The only change is a change in API preference and access to your rules via a new API.

    The process of switching the API preference resulted in all of our Alert Rule names being changed to some combination of GUIDs, completely…

  10. Support Combining Dynamic Threshold Criteria with Static Threshold Criteria

    Please support combining dynamic threshold criteria with static threshold criteria. I would like to combine a dynamic threshold with a static threshold. For instance, I would like to fire an alert when the dynamic threshold is exceeded but only when it also exceeds a minimum static threshold.

  12. Alert Resolution and Refired Alert During a Single Interval Behavior

    Currently if an alert is fired then resolved and triggered again during a single interval then you only get alerted once. The problem with this is you will not receive an alert for the second time the alert is fired thus giving the person who resolved the first alert the impression that everything is fixed when in fact there is now a new error that needs to be resolved.

  13. Allow more than 500 values within a single metric based alert rule

    Allow more than 500 values within a single metric based alert rule.

    it does not take long to exceed the 500 limit, even doing something simple like % free space on servers with a single drive letter.
    Limit should be configuration.
    if performance is the concern limit the evaluation frequency as the dimension increases.

  15. Add the option to send one alert per result when alerting from a log analytics query.

    Add the option to send one alert per result when alerting from a log analytics query.

    within the configure signal logic screen add the option.

    Send one alert per result Y/N

    for example

    This query might list more than one result

    Perf
    | where InstanceName matches regex "[A-Z]:"
    |where TimeGenerated >= ago(15m) and CounterName == "% Free Space" and CounterValue < 20
    | summarize by Computer, ObjectName, CounterName, InstanceName, CounterValue

    instead of sending all the results data in one alert, send one alert per row from the results.

  16. Provide some form of alert rule foldering or grouping

    Provide some form of alert rule foldering or grouping.

    Having a single list for all alerts is primitive.
    allow us to create groups or folders,
    for example we would have a group for production servers that might have different thresholds than non-prod.
    or a group for a specific group of application servers.

  17. allow alert rule edit/update on all fields

    Add the ability to edit all fields in an alert rule.
    We should not have to delete and re-create to change the name or other fields.

    all fields in the alert rule should be editable.

  18. Add the option for "select all " in the computer list to auto-update as new servers are added, currently we would need to update manually

    Add the option for "select all " in the computer list within an alert rule to auto-update as new servers are added, currently we would need to update manually.
    but it needs to be a select-able option.

    auto-update server list y/n

  19. Centralized dashboard to track all alert activities (email, issue, alert monitoring)

    We should be able to have a complete dashboard to see how many alerts were fired, the type of issues, and see exactly if they are actually working

  20. Add Additional Event Triggers on Storage Account Alerting

    Monitoring and alerting on Storage Account resources seems to be focused on metric and general resource administration alert triggers.

    Ability to create/trigger an alert on the addition of a new blob/file to a container/containers in the storage account.
