  1. Localization an Alert E-mail

    Currently an alert e-mail is in English only. For much more cloud operates can easily understand the alert e-mail, I hope it could be configurable the alert e-mail in each languages.

  2. Azure monitor alert rules should allow importing queries from analytics explorer

    It would be awesome if there was a mechanism to allow importing queries from Analytics Explorer into Azure monitor alert rules.

    Today, while creating these alert rules, we have to copy-paste queries from analytics explorer. This means one has to (potentially) maintain several versions of the same query.

  3. 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.

  4. Timely Health Alert reporting

    Difficult to find the best place for this....

    Today at 09:45 GMT, I discovered that I could not start a de-allocated VM in UKSouth, and raised a Microsoft support ticket at 09:47BST.

    No issues were shown on the Portal Service Health and no alerts were received, until 12:32 -apparently the fault started at 06:50 UTC.

    And then the Portal Service Health showed the issue at UKWest and not UKSouth.

    As a consequence this has got me very concerned regarding running a service and reporting to my customers, and seems at odds with Service Management Reporting at SLAs.

    I am less…

  5. Support alerting on a filtered metric

    I'd like to receive alert by specific api controller response time such as '~/api/viewpost > 3sec'

    We can monitor it, but cannot create an alert rule.

    This request is similar to the link, and your team closed due to duplicate issue. But the link is broken; https://feedback.azure.com/forums/357324-application-insights/suggestions/9702621-alert-can-be-fired-with-metric-performance-counter

  6. Allow us to suppress the number of alerts we get for administrative operations. A VM Delete alert will send 6 emails ! Thanks

    Setting up an alert for a new VM or delete VM will send six emails as it's a long running operation and there is no way to suppress or limit to just one email. Microsoft case =117071616046005 thanks

  7. Provide improved alerting for global or region-specific Azure service disruption

    High-level alerting for Azure service disruption relies on the Azure status page, but this is often slow to reflect issues and can't be used as a reliable indicator.

    Service health alerts can be configured for all services in specific regions, but these will only trigger if the subscription in which the alert is based contains an impacted resource - this means that you need to configure the same health alerts in every subscription just to be sure of catching it.

    Those of us who manage many tenants would find it useful to have an over-arching and entirely independent (i.e. not…

  8. 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. 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.

  10. More information in Alerts email, Activity that failed, parameters, etc.

    I was wondering if it is possible to send more information when a pipeline fails in the Alerts. It would be good to see in the Alert Email, which activity failed within the pipeline as well as any parameters that were passed into the pipeline. This would allow for easier identification of where in the process the pipeline failed, instead of just seeing the pipeline name.

  11. Allow webhooks to authenticate via authentication headers

    CUrrently, providing the tokenID of the webhook in the alert URI is not the most secure method of posting - we would like to be able to use authorization headers to authenticate against our webhook and also identify the source of the post.

    Having tokens in the url is really poor as typically logging software will log the request path + parameters (meaning the tokenID will be exposed),

  12. Log role deletions to the Activity Logs

    Azure Activity Logs record when roles are assigned to users. We should also be displaying events for when roles are removed from users, and the actor who removed the role.

  13. Include subscription name and ID in the budget alert notification email

    Include subscription name and ID in the budget alert notification email.
    Today it says "Account information" at the bottom section, but below it is blank. Getting multiple budget alert notification makes it impossible to know which subscription it concerns.

  14. Alert rotation on-call scheduling

    Would like the ability to set a schedule of which action group gets the alert. This would allow for a rotating on-call response. Action group 1 gets the notification on week 1, Action group 2 gets the notification on week 2, etc. This could also be beneficial for hourly rotation (day shift / night shift). Currently using PagerDuty for this, but the integration with Log Analytic alerts is terrible.

  15. Add ARM template support for Azure Monitor Scheduled Query Rule export when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade

    It would be very helpful when creating an Alert Rule in the App Insights Analytics blade in the Azure portal if we could export the ARM template for the Scheduled Query Rule that's about to be created, similar to the way we can export the "Automation Script" when creating other resources.

    This would be useful for helping us automated our monitoring in ARM templates as part of our CI/CD process.

  17. 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

  18. Allow option to clone an existing alert

    Would be handy to have an option to allow 'clone' an existing rule to easily provision a rule that has a similar configuration.

  19. Complete the json payload for Activity Logs Alerts

    In the Activity Logs Alert paylod, there is no field for retrieve the alert rule name. Is this planned ?
    Besides, the field "description" doesn't return the value provided in the Alert rule portal... bug ?

  20. 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.
