Improvements to Azure Monitor log alerts include new links and added dimensions
Published date: 24 June, 2020
Updates to log alerts in Azure Monitor include new links to the Log Analytics API and links filtered by dimensions. Dimensions are also now included in the payload of most action types.
Improved fired alert links
- Direct links to the Log Analytics API
New automation makes it easier to get all the query results for any size of search results.
- Filtered links to the Log Analytics portal and API
Using the splitting that was defined in the metric measure rule type, the link is filtered to the specific column value combinations that triggered the alert.
- Links to the Log Analytics portal are now compressed
This fixes issues with links to very large queries in some browsers.
