General availability: Update on metric alert rules on custom metrics
Published date: September 14, 2022
Metric alert rules that monitor custom metrics can now be saved in the following European regions (in addition to the default “global” region which is still available):
- North Europe
- West Europe
- Sweden Central
- Germany West Central
This capability is available when defining a metric alert rule that monitors a custom metric of a resource that resides in one of the four European regions. Saving an alert rule in a region ensures that the alert rule metadata and its processing stays within Europe.
In addition, action groups can now also be saved in EU regions. This means combining an EU-based metric alert rule with an EU-based action group will ensure an end-to-end experience within Europe, encompassing alert evaluation and actions.
