Big thanks to @Stefan – you can filter for specific time period using the new query language of log analytics; which in-turn can be used in OMS Alerts to skip over specific times.
Regarding the ask for making global maintenance windows in Azure – we are working on the same and we’ll intimate you soon when we are ready with the functionality. Thanks again for your idea and feedback for Azure.Rob commented
We configure our alerts against metrics not queries and via this method there is no way to silent alerts during nightly jobs. Please introduce a way to exclude time periods.
Thanks for the feedback.
We are looking at means of enabling dynamic alert creation and notification in our future updates. We’ll look and means of incorporating your product suggestion, in the same.

Wanted to use Global VNet Peering between two regions for our SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Group only to find it doesn't work. Having to revert back to VPNs which are more expensive. Would be much better if this worked...
