Email alert using Event Grid & LogicApp with filters on telemetry fields

Sagar Epari 130 Reputation points


I am trying to use EventGrid and LogicApp for the first time. I have a few fundamental questions (might be trivial),

  • Is this the best approach to instrument telemetry and trigger email?
  • To add filters in EventGrid, I wanted to check the exact format of telemetry the IoTHub receives and sends it to EventGrid. If I look into activity logs, I dont see that. With some random try, I was able to set the filter. Example, data.body.temperature is greater than 50.
  • Also for LogicApp schema, I would like to get the exact payload format the EventGrid receives so that I can attach the sample to generate schema.

I added a storage blob and redirect all my telemetry messages to the blob. (This is just for my learning) and I see the below format for each entry. So should I use this 'as is' to create the schema for LogicApp (Http Request)?
