Manage your alert instances

The alerts page summarizes all alert instances in all your Azure resources generated in the last 30 days. You can see all types of alerts from multiple subscriptions in a single pane. You can search for a specific alert and manage alert instances.

There are a few ways to get to the alerts page:

  • From the home page in the Azure portal, select Monitor > Alerts.

  • From a specific resource, go to the Monitoring section, and choose Alerts. The landing page contains the alerts on that specific resource.

The alerts summary pane

The alerts summary pane summarizes the alerts fired in the last 24 hours. You can filter the list of alert instances by time range, subscription, alert condition, severity, and more. If you navigated to the alerts page by selecting a specific alert severity, the list is pre-filtered for that severity.

To see more details about a specific alert instance, select the alert instance to open the Alert Details page.

Manage your alerts programmatically

You can query your alerts instances to create custom views outside of the Azure portal, or to analyze your alerts to identify patterns and trends. We recommended that you use Azure Resource Graphs with the 'AlertsManagementResources' schema for managing alerts across multiple subscriptions. For a sample query, see Azure Resource Graph sample queries for Azure Monitor.

You can use Azure Resource Graphs:

You can also use the Alert Management REST API for lower scale querying or to update fired alerts.
