Azure Backup | Enable backup alert notifications
Azure Backup generates alerts for all backup events, such as unsuccessful backups. A new option is to create backup alert notifications so Azure Backup will alert you firing an email when an alert is generated.
To enable the backup alert notifications, navigate to the “Backup Alerts” section of the “recovery Services vault” and click the “Configure notifications”
There switch the Email notification to On to enable the alerts. Enter one or more recipients separated with semicolon (;). Choose Per Alert or Hourly Digest. Per Alert will fire an email for every alert instantly and the Hourly Digest means that the notification agent will check for alerts every hour and will fire an email with the active alerts.
Finally choose the Severity of the alerts which you will be notified and press save.
