Changing the title of Alerts sent by azure Monitor

Hello Team,

I have a question, i don't know if it is possible or not, but i will ask anyway

I want to know if it is possible to change the title of Alerts sent by Azure Monitor, so that these alerts can be more speaking to admins?

I'm using VMInsight and datacollection rules to monitor my VMs, these two are writing to a log analytic, and i'm using this log analytic to create alerts

When i'm receiving these alerts, i'm receiving them with a generic title : Fired:SevX Azure Monitor Alert Event Error Alert on MyLogAnalyticWorkspace( microsoft.operationalinsights/workspaces ) at XX/XX/XXXX XX:YY:ZZ AM, if i look in the content of the alerts (dimensions + the alert description) i can see what the alert is about, but i can't know this information based on the title of the alert.

As i'm redirecting this alerts to Jira, i want to know if there is a way, to change this generic titles to a more dynamic one, which will give the admins information about what the alert is about based on the title

    Hi Mohamed,
    I'm not aware of a way of changing the alert title, however you could probably do some clever things with logic apps to create 1 or more fields within the alert that assigns whatever you like to those fields.
