Steps to configure Azure Monitor integration for incident management, using Squadcast
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.
- 1.Navigate to Services -> Service Overview -> select or search for your Service. Expand the accordion -> In the Alert Sources section, click Add.
2. Select Azure Monitor. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within Azure Monitor. Finish by clicking Add Alert Source -> Done.
When an alert source turns Active, it’ll show up under Configured Alert Sources, you can either generate a test alert from the integration or wait for a real-time alert to be generated by the Alert Source. An Alert Source is active if there is a recorded incident via that Alert Source for the Service.
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.
