Advance notifications for Azure SQL Database now in public preview
Published date: 02 March, 2021
Advance notifications allows you to prepare for planned maintenance events on your Azure SQL Database resources and minimize the impact of database failover on your sensitive workloads.
Advance notifications leverage the Service Health alert feature to deliver information about upcoming planned maintenance events impacting the availability of your database 24 hours in advance. Additional notifications are delivered before maintenance start and after maintenance completion, so you can easily coordinate other related activities.
Through the set of configuration preferences you can choose the notification method (email, SMS, Azure app push notification), as well as the additional actions to be triggered (Azure Function, Logic App, Webhook, etc.).
