Azure Monitor Integration Guide
Azure Monitor triggers user defined alerts by watching metrics. PagerTree acts as the dispatcher for these alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules. PagerTree notifies them via email, sms, voice, and/or push notifications until the alert is acknowledged or closed.
The Azure Monitor integration is one-way, meaning:
- When an alert is fired (
Firedstate) in Azure Monitor, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
- When the alert is resolved (
Resolvedstate) in Azure Monitor, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
In this integration tutorial we will show you how to send alarms from Azure Monitor to PagerTree. The estimated time for this integration is 10 minutes. We assume that you already have a PagerTree and Azure account setup. Additionally, we assume you already have some resources available to monitor in your Azure account.
- From the action button, click the “Create Integration” button.
- In the “Create Integration” box, fill out the following:

You have successfully completed the Azure Monitor Integration. Now when Azure Monitor creates an alert, PagerTree will create an alert and route it to the correct team member that is on-call. If you have any questions please contact email@example.com
