Tweaking Proactive Alerts

I’ve already talked about how cool proactive alerts are, but one thing I missed is that you can actually tweak these alerts through the Azure portal.

Go to the “Alerts” blade, and there you should find a single “Proactive Diagnostics” alert.

If you click it and go to the alert configuration, you can set email recipients, setup a webhook,  and enable/disable.

One thing that is really useful is you can set “Received detailed analysis” checkbox:

nrt-detailed

This will make sure you get the entire deep-dive analysis of the incident straight to your email inbox, without needing to go to the portal. This can save some very valuable minutes during a live-site incident!
