Start using new alerts in Azure Monitor for Azure Government Cloud

Published date: 25 February, 2021

The new alerts for Azure Monitor enables you to create a unified monitoring experience that is faster, smarter, and more extensible than the classic alerts. With these enhanced benefits, we will retire classic alerts on Azure Government cloud on 29 of February 2024. The classic alerts service in Azure public cloud has been retired since 31 August 2019.  

Recommended action 

  1. View the currently used classic alerts in the Azure portal by clicking on Monitor; then click Alerts; then click View classic alerts. Follow the steps in the migration tool to transition, or manually migrate to new metric alerts in Azure Monitor. 
  1. Update any Azure Resource Manager templates that use the Microsoft.Insights/alertRules resource provider to other new alerts resource types. View template samples here. 

 Please note that alert rules on virtual machine guest operating system metrics and retirement metrics are not included in the migration tool.
