Published date: 31 March, 2023
On 31 March 2026, classic alerts for Recovery Services vaults in Azure Backup will be retired and no longer supported. Before that date, you’ll need to transition to a new alerting solution.
We recommend using built-in Azure Monitor alerts because they include the same capabilities as classic alerts, plus:
- Support for multiple notification channels.
- Alert monitoring at scale.
- Programmatic management of alerts and notifications.
To ensure that you continue to receive alerts for Recovery Services vaults in Azure Backup, review pricing and transition to built-in Azure Monitor alerts or another supported alerting solution by 31 March 2026.
