Hey yall,
im trying to setup an activity alert for when a Teams Channel/Team is deleted and im getting the following error/issue.

Diagnostic information: {Version:17.00.8220.013,Environment:NCUPROD,DeploymentId:cf6faf45165d4ef89bd31da3ad266431,InstanceId:WebRole_IN_7,SID:3d663b29-105f-416a-ac78-49a964b2a1e0,CID:c069aec6-651f-4323-8159-e6c5d58d903b}
Time: 2022-04-08T12:20:07.3151612Z

Error

The ActivityAlert type entity does not have the following type command: Create. Parameter name: entityMetadata

I also tried creating it in powershell and the New-ActivityAlert cmdlet doesnt seem to be in powershell under the import-module mentioned on microsofts kb's

    Activity alerts cannot be managed via the UI, Microsoft removed that few years back. You should still be able to manage them via PowerShell, connect via the method outlined here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/exchange/connect-to-scc-powershell?view=exchange-ps
    Though I run few tests and New-ActivityAlert cmdlet seems to always fail with some stupid error message, so it's possible they removed support for it altogether. Use protection alerts instead :)
