Hi,

WE have github action CICD process to deploy the ADF pipeline using ARM template.
However we have to deploy alerts and metrics created in one env to another env. The ARM template not capturing the alerts and metrics. so what would be the possible way to deploy the alerts and metrics to another env? i want to deploy as part of this CICD process

    Hi @Umesh Narayanan
    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform and thanks for posting your question here.|

    Why do ARM templates not capture alerts and metrics? 

    ARM templates do not capture alerts and metrics because they are not considered as resources in Azure. Instead, they are configurations that are applied to resources. Therefore, you cannot deploy alerts and metrics using ARM templates.

    Possible ways to deploy alerts and metrics to another environment.

    There are a few possible ways to deploy alerts and metrics to another environment as part of your CICD process:

    Use Azure Resource Manager (ARM) 

    • Azure Resource Manager templates to deploy the resources that the alerts and metrics are configured for. Once the resources are deployed, you can use Azure PowerShell or Azure CLI to create the alerts and metrics in the new environment.
    • This option involves deploying the resources that the alerts and metrics are configured for using an ARM template. Once the resources are deployed, you can use Azure PowerShell or Azure CLI to create the alerts and metrics in the new environment. This approach requires some scripting knowledge and may take some time to set up, but it provides a lot of flexibility and control over the deployment process.

    Azure Automation

    • Another option is to use Azure Automation to create runbooks that deploy the alerts and metrics to the new environment. This involves creating a runbook in Azure Automation that deploys the alerts and metrics, which can then be called from your CICD process. This approach is similar to the first option in terms of flexibility and control, but it requires less scripting knowledge and may be easier to set up.

    Azure Logic Apps 

    • This option involves creating a workflow in Azure Logic Apps that deploys the alerts and metrics to the new environment. You can then call the workflow from your CICD process. This approach is similar to the second option in terms of ease of use, but it may be less flexible and provide less control over the deployment process.
