  1. To enable/disable Alert Rule add new Powershell CmdLet

    We often have the need to enable or disable Alert Rules programatically with powershell. It seems there is no real cmdLet to set properties of Alert Rules.
    In the powershell documentation of Alerts Rules I posted a script with a workarround to enable/disable/toggle alert rules.
    Issue can be found here: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/5284
    The documentation team liked the feedback to create a new CmdLet for this.

    Proposal: Set-AzureRmMetricAlertRule to change properties (ie. description, enabled etc.)

    P.S.
    Official documentation can be found here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/monitoring-and-diagnostics/insights-powershell-samples#create-metric-alerts

  3. Action group webhooks - Ability to view POST result

    It would be useful to have the ability to see the result of a webhook POST.
    By seeing the status code and message of the webhook, you can determine if the message has been delivered, and cut down on your troubleshooting time, in the event of missing alerts/messages.

    I've recently had a scenario where I was trying to send Azure monitor alerts via webhook to Pagerduty. The alerts wasn't arriving, and I was also unable to determine to root cause of the issue.
    Fortunately the issue was resolved eventually without intervention on my side.

    By having the ability to see…

  4. Add text property to webhook payload to allow easy integration with Microsoft Teams

    Microsoft could then provide a desciptive text message, that explain the alert, which could be used directly in Teams and Slack etc. This would save consumers from i.e. having to create Logic apps to format the message for it to work with teams.

  5. 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..
