Transition to built-in Azure Monitor alerts for Recovery Services vaults in Azure Backup by 31 March 2026

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.

Required action

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.
