Backup notifications

Hello everyone!
I have set up a Recovery Services vault that backup a Share.
In the "Monitoring" tab we configured backup alert to send emails to some recipients, but we verified that there is no event type in this tab.
We were in doubt about the alerts and backup alerts option.

How can we best receive all backup events, whether they are successful or failed?

Can you help us?

@tonysantos-3819 Thank you for reaching out to us!

In the default backup alerts solution, only alerts for failed backups are sent (not successful backups). To configure alerts for successful backups, you could either use custom log alerts (https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/backup/backup-azure-monitoring-use-azuremonitor) or our newly released metric alerts solution (https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/backup/metrics-overview)

You can also refer to this doc (https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/backup/monitoring-and-alerts-overview) which gives an overview of the various monitoring and reporting options with regards to Azure Backup.
