Operator and CRD support with Azure Managed Prometheus

Published date: March 19, 2024

Azure Monitor managed service for Prometheus will support CRD-based configs for scrape jobs to collect metrics from workloads running in your AKS cluster. With this new update, configuring Managed Prometheus will deploy the Pod and Service Monitor custom resource definitions to allow you to create your own custom resources. This is similar to the OSS Prometheus Operator, and allows for easy configuration of scrape jobs in any namespace, eliminating the need to update the common ConfigMap in the kube-system namespace.

This update is available in North Central US and is being gradually rolled out to all other regions in the next few weeks and we expect the rollout to complete by 15-April-2024.
