  1. Add metric charts to alert email

    It will be helpful to see a chart of the metric the alert email is about. Please add this to the email content.

  2. Enable/support "new" alerts to be altered with/through CLI API

    Hi
    Please enable support for new alert type through CLI API. Classic is supported
    We can alter both new and classic alerts in Azure Portal, but only classic alerts with CLI. This should be prioritized as all alerts now will be created in new format to avoid migration later.
    We use alerting through log analytics and directly per item. Not being able to change alert status automatically during deploys is a bit of a showstopper.
    I get flashbacks to classic vs. New portal.

  3. Subscribe/Unsubscribe single email address from group email

    We use group email address in our product in order to get email from azure monitoring alerts to specific teams/goals.
    We found out that if a single person unsubscribe from the email alert sent from app insight the entire group will not be able to receive an alert email.

    I vote for the following enhancements:
    1) Enable single user from group email to subscribe/unsubscribe from a specific alert without affecting the entire emails in the group list
    2) Enable in the azure portal to subscribe/unsubscribe for monitoring alert emails (in addition to the email send from app insight, which can…

  4. 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.

  6. Add the ability to be alerted based on the number of messages in a DeadLetter of a Service Bus entity

    Hi,
    It is possible to create an alert based on the number of messages in a ServiceBus queue/subscription but only for the Active queue not for the DeadLetter queue.
    But the DeadLetter queue is the most important counter because messages in error are going into this queue so beeing alerted when a message is published into this queue is a good way to detect an error.

  7. Edit Resolved Notifications

    Currently, through the new Action Rules, you can add a Description to the rule for when it fails. This Description can then be utilised for your notifications and is shown in emails/webhooks/any other notification you setup. (On a separate note specifically for webhooks, it would be useful for it to preview the JSON schema it is going to use).

    Once the Action Rule's criteria is no longer failing, it changes to "Resolved". This then also sends out notification to the same setup emails/webhooks/any other notification. However, there is no functionality in place to edit this notification or add a Description.

  9. Alert emails should include the Local Time (not UTC)

    Alert emails should also show the local time as configured for the subscription, as well as the UTC time.

    This would allow for a consistent operational focus.

  10. [REQUEST] Please use one email address as the source address for Microsoft Azure notification emails.

    Now, we get various notification emails from Microsoft. Some of them are very important for our and our customer's business. However, it's not easy for us to find that kind of emails since Microsoft use various email address as source addresses . So that customers don't miss the notification email, please use one email address as the source address.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  17. Add an option to display alerts in local time

    We've responded to customer requests to display UTC as local time for analytics, but email alerts are still being sent out in UTC (which then has to be converted manually, possibly in the middle of a major incident). There is customer demand for alerts to be sent out in local time (or another selected time zone) instead of UTC.
