Microsoft Azure Resource Health Integration

Azure Resource Health helps you diagnose and get support when an Azure service problem affects your resources. It informs you about the current and past health of your resources and provides technical support to help you mitigate problems.

What does Opsgenie offer Azure Resource Health users?

Use Opsgenie’s Azure Resource Health Integration to forward Azure Resource 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 Resource Health alert is created in Azure, an alert is also created in Opsgenie.
