Azure Integration

Microsoft Azure provides alerts based on monitoring metrics for, or events on, your services. For an alert rule on a metric value, when the value of a specified metric crosses a threshold assigned, the alert rule becomes active and can send a notification. For an alert rule on events, a rule can send a notification on every event, or, only when a certain number of events happen.

OpsGenie determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules and escalations, and notifies them using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, push notifications.
