Enhanced experience for Azure Advisor security recommendations

Published date: June 12, 2019

Azure Advisor has new enhancements that will make it easier to optimize your Azure resources and get the most out of Azure, including a tighter Security Center integration, bulk actions, and additional recommendations.

Advisor now integrates more closely with Security Center, which will allow you to:

  • See a detailed view of your security recommendations from Security Center directly in Advisor.
  • Get your security recommendations programmatically through Advisor REST APIs, CLI, or Powershell.
  • Review a summary of your security alerts from Security Center in Advisor.

Let us know if you have feedback on the new security recommendation experience.

Advisor is also announcing the ability to take bulk actions on recommendations, such as dismiss and postpone. These actions can be performed in the Azure portal or programmatically. Learn more.
