Creating Alerts For Azure Web Services

Before reading this, please go through the following article for gathering some more knowledge on Azure.

In this article, we will learn how to set up alerts using Azure Management Portal. 

The following are some of the requirements needed to set up an alert in Azure Web Services.

  • Active Azure account
  • Azure web application
We are able to configure alerts for Azure Web Services in four ways -
  • Azure Portal
  • PowerShell
  • Command-Line Interface
  • Azure Monitor Rest API
The following are the important steps to create alerts for an already created web application.

Log into Azure Management Portal

Once the dashboard appears, locate your already created web application. If not, create a new web application. It will take 5 minutes only, to set up a web application.


Once a resource is located, select it by clicking on it. 

Select "Alerts" under Monitoring section. The "Alerts" or "Alert Rules" blade appears.


Click "Add alert" option, as shown below, to add a new alert rule in your existing web application.


Fill all the mandatory fields that are required to add a rule.

  • Resource - Select the application for which you need to add an alert.
  • Name - Name of the alert to be created.
  • Metrics - Select memory percentage, condition, and threshold value (should be a round off value) and tick Owner Email
  • Administrator Email - It is an optional field. Enter your E-Mail ID.
  • Webhook - Put your valid webhook URL. This is used when an alert is triggered.
  • Action - Run this by using Azure Automation because it automatically deploys an alert when the application starts its execution.
Finally, click OK to add an alert. It takes some time on Azure Management Portal to create a new rule. Once added, you will be able to see the added rule in "Rules" blade.
