Azure Monitor Integration

Azure Monitor is a full stack monitoring service in Azure that provides a complete set of features to monitor your Azure resources in addition to resources in other clouds and on-premises.

How Azure Monitor users benefit from PagerTree

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.

Functionality of Integration

The Azure Monitor integration is one-way, meaning:

  • When an alert is fired (Fired state) in Azure Monitor, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When the alert is resolved (Resolved state) in Azure Monitor, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.

Tutorial Overview

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.
