Integrate Opsgenie with Microsoft Azure Event Hubs

Azure Event Hubs logo

For an alert rule on a metric value, when the value of a specified metric crosses a threshold assigned, the alert rule becomes active and sends a notification. For an alert rule on events, a rule can send a notification on every event, or, only when a certain number of events happen.

​What does Opsgenie offer Azure Event Hubs users?

Azure Event Hubs can generates alerts based on metrics. Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for the alerts generated by Azure. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules and escalations and notifies via using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and Android & iOS push notifications.

Opsgenie Supports the new Azure metric alerts as well:

With the Azure new metric alerts, new fields are added in the new Azure payload. Hence, you can accordingly configure the Opsgenie integration to support them.
