Azure – Get your recommendations by email as soon as they are available (preview)

As you know, Azure has a feature called Azure Advisor to help you in getting the most out of your Azure resources and add security.

Well, Azure Advisor has been updated to provide you a notification feature to send an email alert as soon as you have a new recommendation.

To start using it, logon to your Azure portal ( and reach the Advisor blade.

You will see a banner informing you that you can now create Advisor Alerts or go to the Monitoring\Alerts section to create your Azure Advisor Alerts.

When creating a new Advisor Alert, you will be asked to:

  • Select the subscription to be notified for; you cannot create a single alert for multiple subscriptions;
  • If you choose “Category and impact level”, the category and/or impact level are optional. If you don’t define any specifics, the alert will apply to all category and/or impact level.
  • If you choose “Recommendation”, the recommendation type is optional. If you don’t define it, the alert will apply to all types.
  • Finally, you must name the rule and define the email address for receiving the notifications.
