  1. 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.

  2. Complex Alert Criteria

    I would like the ability to create more complex alert criteria such as the ratio of one metric against another. For instance, I would like to configure an alert using a "total errors metric" / "total requests metric". If the ratio exceeded some number then the alert would be triggered.

  5. Alert based on "Last Activity Time" for IOT Device

    Looking to create an alert that for an IOT Device when the "Last Activity Time" exceeds a certain time threshold.

    eg; alert when "Last Activity Time" is older than 24 hours

    Would allow us to create email alerts to specific people on particular IOT Devices

  6. 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.

  7. 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),

  8. 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?

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  12. Link to "Search results" at alert email is malformed when the log query is too long

    When the AppInsights query is log, the "Search result" link to AppInsights log search query included in the alert email is malformed. It looks like the query is cut off hence the URL is not completed.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Action group - Let us control name and region for Resouce group

    Let us control name and region for Resouce group created along with a Action Groip.

    The default resource group created can't be renamed, and the region is hard coded to east us (if I'm not mistaken). It will fail even, if your'e having Azure Policies to block resource group creation in certain regions. There should be better logic involved in choosing default region. Or better: Let us choose.

  18. Azure Alerts - Notification Interval

    As of now, an activated alert is only fired once per incident. The alert stays in the 'fired' state until it gets resolved. No further activated alerts are send out during this period.

    It would be great to have a notification interval option for an alert which enables user to specify the frequency of notification.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
