    Hello RanjithPc,

    There is a known delay between the time the alert is created and the time when the alert becomes active in Azure Monitor. You can also check the status of your alert in the Azure portal(
    If you want to send email to a group of people, you need to create a distribution group and use that in the email notification.

    Could you perhaps inform me what permission is needed for users to be able to create these alerts?
    I have a user who wants to create an alert but he gets the following error:

    The client 'client email address' with object id '************' does not have authorization to perform action 'Microsoft.Insights/metricalerts/write' over scope '/subscriptions/4e3a0dbd-45b1-46f1-8ce2-1fb5e3d2a811/resourcegroups/********/providers/Microsoft.Insights/metricalerts/ADF' or the scope is invalid. If access was recently granted, please refresh your credentials.

    I tried going through all of the permissions to the Data Factory but no luck figuring it out.

    Many thanks,

    You need to have "Monitoring Contributor" role to be able to set diagnostic settings for a resource and create alerts.See this for detailed information :

    Hope this helps,

    When a metric alert on a azure adf pipeline is created from adf->monitor->alerts & mertics navigation, the alert trigger fails,
    when similar alert is created with no change at all is created but from Monitor -> create new alert , the trigger fires and the alert is received via email(setup in action group). Can someone help me with this if i am missing something here.
