Business value

When changes happen to an environment, such as updates, restores, renames, or deletion, the signal is emitted to the environment telemetry resource in Application Insights.

This allows the tenant administrator to set up alerts on important event types using Azure Monitor, Power Automate, or third-party tools and then send notifications using a text message, email, Microsoft Teams message, or to third-party tools.

Feature details

When changes to an environment happen, the signal is emitted to the environment telemetry resource in Application Insights, provided that Application Insights have been configured for the environment.

The following event types are currently planned:

  • Update available
  • Environment update scheduled
  • Environment update validation finished successfully
  • Environment update validation failed
  • Environment update started
  • Environment update finished successfully
  • Environment failed to update
  • Environment restored to point-in-time
  • Environment renamed
  • Environment deleted
  • Environment configuration changed

Using Azure Monitor, Power Automate, or third-party tools, the tenant administrator can now set up alerts on some of these event types. The admin can send a message to a channel of their choice, such as text message, email, or Microsoft Teams message, or they can interact with bug tracking software, such as Azure DevOps or GitHub.
