Azure Alert Management provides features such as alert correlation and state management.
This forum is to discuss anything related to alerting in Azure.

  1. Add a 'Duplicate Alarm' button when browsing alerts

    I have a boat-load of alerts that differ by only one value (like a 'computer name') or 'environment name'. But I have to configure the other 30 values that are all the same each time I create an alarm in the UI. I need a way to use one alarm as a template

  2. 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).

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. Provide a list or range of IP addresses alerts are sent from.

    A list of IP addresses the alerts are sent from would be useful when whitelisting IP addresses is necessary.
