Microsoft Azure Service Health Integration

Azure Service Health provides personalized guidance and support when issues in Azure services affect you, and helps you prepare for upcoming planned maintenance.

Azure Service Health alerts you and your teams via targeted and flexible notifications. Opsgenie is an alert and notification management solution that is highly complementary to Azure Service Health's alerting mechanism.

What does Opsgenie offer Azure Service Health users?

Use Opsgenie’s Azure Service Health Integration to forward Azure Service Health alerts to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules- using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

When a Service Health alert is created in Azure, an alert is also created in Opsgenie.
