Azure service incidents may impact customer resources and it is critical customers are equipped to mitigate the potential harm by following the guidelines provided by Azure. Azure lets users create and generate notifications of these issues. This service is known as Service Health alert and it can help you to get notified of service incidents, health advisories, and planned maintenance.

Creating alerts for possible health issues

Personalized health map plays an important role in providing notifications for possible health issues. Users may find it by visiting Azure Portal. Once you click on the Azure Service Health, you get to Azure Service Health map that displays all possible issues on a specialized dashboard. This information may further be shared with engineers and other users.
