Azure Status Alerts

Ron Dameron has built Outlook rules for Azure status alerts:

I do have alerts set up on the Azure portal and in Application Insights to notify me when availability or performance thresholds are violated but I also need to know if there is a global or regional issue that might affect our app so that I can respond and notify the staff when appropriate. Azure status changes are reported on the Azure Status web page.

The following will describe how to use the Azure Status page RSS feeds and Outlook rules for notification if things go sideways in Microsoft Azure.

This is a good use of Outlook’s built-in RSS reader.
