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

Published date: March 31, 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 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.
