Azure Classic Alerts Are Being Retired by August 31, 2019

Jul 18, 2019
If you are an Azure customer, you might have received the message that classic alerts are being retired on August 31, 2019.
You might be asking yourself, “Should my organization be doing something about this?” If you still want Azure alerts, then the answer is “Yes!” With classic alerts being retired, your organization needs to do something soon.
The good news is that Microsoft offers a tool to migrate Alerts to Azure Monitor services.
If you’re wondering if you should just recreate the alerts in Azure Monitor services instead of migrating, then you need to first evaluate your active alert rules. If you have simple alerts and are only monitoring a few things, the easiest option would be to use the migration tool. However, if your organization wants to improve monitoring (or your current alerts are monitoring multiple sites or services), then you should investigate Azure Monitor to determine if you can consolidate its rules for better monitoring. (See Microsoft documentation for more information.)
For an expert recommendation on what to do, contact us today. Skyline’s Client Care team will review your organization’s current alerts and suggest new alerts or enhance your current monitors to better serve your monitoring needs.
