Introducing new Azure Resource Graph functionality – Track changes to your resource properties
Posted on Wednesday, October 9, 2019
Resources get changed through the course of daily use, reconfiguration, and even redeployment. Most change is by design, but unintended changes can break dependencies, result in large costs, or introduce vulnerabilities to your system.
An update to Azure Resource Graph API now allows you to see further details about the changes to your Azure resources. For each change record, an overall changeType is returned indicating if the overall change to the resource was a Create, Update, or Delete action. When you set the fetchPropertyChanges flag to true in your request, the response body will contain a new section called propertyChanges that contains the list of property changes made, including the property name, the before value, the after value, and the change type for that property change (Insert, Update, or Remove).
