Turn on health monitoring for Microsoft Sentinel (preview)

Monitor the health of supported Microsoft Sentinel resources by turning on the health monitoring feature in Microsoft Sentinel's Settings page. Get insights on health drifts, such as the latest failure events or changes from success to failure states, and use this information to create notifications and other automated actions.

To get health data from the SentinelHealth data table, you must first turn on the Microsoft Sentinel health feature for your workspace.

When the health feature is turned on, the SentinelHealth data table is created at the first success or failure event generated for supported resource types.

The following resource types are currently supported:

  • Data connectors
  • Automation rules
  • Playbooks (Azure Logic Apps workflows)


    When monitoring playbook health, you'll also need to collect Azure Logic Apps diagnostic events from your playbooks in order to get the full picture of your playbook activity. See Monitor the health of your automation rules and playbooks for more information.

To configure the retention time for your health events, see Configure data retention and archive policies in Azure Monitor Logs.


The SentinelHealth data table is currently in PREVIEW. See the Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews for additional legal terms that apply to Azure features that are in beta, preview, or otherwise not yet released into general availability.
