Today we are introducing three new capabilities to Azure Monitor: Activity Log Alerts, Service Health Notifications, and Action Groups. These new capabilities enable you to receive a notification when a new event in the Azure Activity Log occurs that matches a rule that you define, and notify via reusable sets of notification receivers using Action Groups. You can use these tools to receive an alert for an Azure Service Health Notification or an Administrative event such as a VM being created or deleted. This video will briefly introduce these new features and the new dedicated 'Service Notifications" tab in the Azure Monitor blade.

    Is the webhook feature deprecated? Cannot seem to get it to work and found documentation stating that it was going away.

    Do you have a sample activity log alert for Advanced Thread Detection events or log activity? I'm trying push the notification to a webhook. Thx, HF

    @hfleitas:The best way to create an activity log alert is to start from an event in the Activity Log and look at the properties of that event. Azure Security Center events are always in the "Security" category, but for an advanced threat detection in particular it's best to create an alert after finding a sample event.

    Poor quality. Talks too fast and mumbles. No CC available. What is he saying at 1:59. Your jurlits?

    @Ray Silver: "The Action Group we just created will now be available for use when configuring future alerts." Closed captioning was recently added as a requirement on new Ch9 videos. Since this video is a bit older, it hasn't had captions added yet.
