Allow renaming of alerts
I should be able to rename my alerts. It is beyond belief to me that the name is immutable. I have to hope my colleagues chose exactly the right name as they create an alert, matching the pattern set for other alerts. Seriously, the name of ANYTHING should be easily editable as noone ever gets names correctly the first time.

So when you visit this newly merged feedback, check to see if you can vote. If so, do so and your vote will be counted yet again.
Is the vote count accurate?
Just got an email that we merged two similar feedback ideas together (Allow Alert Rules to be renamed) and (Allow renaming of alerts).
We merged a 400 vote item into a 200 vote item, and kept the smaller tally.
If that is true, it seems unfair to the 400 folks that voted for the similar idea, to throw away the votes?

Why is this basic functionality missing. Please allow to rename them.
Not having the ability to rename alerts is very inconvenient
Jamal Mohammed commented
We need this change badly. Deleting alerts and recreating them just to correct a typo or to edit the name is a pain.
Farkas Dániel commented
Please allow rule names to be changed.
Lasse Seten commented
Please enable this, this is pretty non-user friendly

Can't change alert rule name? Did somebody miss creating an ID column when creating alert rules objects? This is reaching half a thousand votes. If we can't get this done, would we consider creating a
COPY ALERT RULE
button? That would get us most of the way there. Copy rule, pick new name, save. Then, we could delete the old rule.

After an alert is created in Azure, there is no way to rename the alert. The only option is to delete the rule and recreate it with the desired name. There should be a feature to rename the alert without having to delete and recreate it.
Please allow rule names to be changed. I can't think of a practical reason why a rule couldn't be renamed. It doesn't impact security or anything. Seems to be a pretty simple code change.

So, how about it? Anytime soon?

Please let us know the ETA by when can this request / requirement will be available for Azure users....
We need this functionality asap.
This is ridiculous. 4 years and it is still not implemented.
We have more than 1500 alerts created. We need to change Alerts name frequently based on organization name standards. its really tedious to delete and re-create all the alerts whenever naming standards change. We need any solution to rename the alerts. We can't spend more manual efforts. Please give high priority to this request.
Wow, I cannot believe we cannot rename a rule in Azure.

It's ridiculous that the company that USED TO BE one of the greatest software companies cannot implement a very BASIC operation in their flagship development.

Currently you have to delete and recreate an alert in order to change its name. It would be easier if we could edit the alert rule's name without having to delete the original alert and recreate it.

Googling brought me here as I thought it had to be I just didn't know how to rename an alert, not that alerts could not be renamed. Please allow renaming alert rules.
