Follow the steps below to configure a service so as to extract its related alert data from Azure monitor. Squadcast will then process this information to create incidents for this service as per your preferences.
On the Sidebar, click on Services.
You can either navigate to an existing service or make a new one by clicking on “Add Service”.
Check the service details like name, description, and the associated escalation policy for this service and make sure it is correctly entered.
From the integration types drop down select the integration type as “Azure Monitor”. You will be shown your Azure Monitor webhook URL and click Save.
Login to your Azure account select your virtual machine. Under Monitoring, go to Alerts.
Then go to Manage Actions → Add Action groups → Creatre action group (Test grp or Squadcast webhook alerts) by selecting Action type as Webhook. Paste the squadcast webhook url from the previous step and make sure Enable the common alert schema toggle switch is turned on.
Go back to Alerts window and click New Alert. Specify Resource, Condition and under Actions select the action group (Test grp or Squadcast webhook alerts) you just made. Provide alert rule Name, Description and Create Alert.
Now whenever an alert is triggered by Azure Monitor, an incident will be created automatically in Squadcast.
The Azure Monitor integration comes with an Auto-Resolve feature, meaning that whenever the alerts gets resolved in Azure, the incident will automatically get resolved in Squadcast as well.
