Azure alert rule deleted but still active. RRS feed

  • Question

  • An Azure alert rule was deleted via the Azure portal but's it's still active and sending out (a lot....) notifications.

    The rule can't be found anymore within the Azure portal and it's even not listed by the Get-AlertRule powershell cmd.

    Anyone else seen this problem and know's how to fix...?

  • Hello Martjes,

    1. Did you use the classic portal to delete the rule?
    2. Have you ensured that any of the alert rules are not enabled for your website?

    It could be possible that you are getting emails alerts for rules that are for previous monitoring.

  • Hi Syed,

    Most probably deleted the rule in the new portal but I'am not totally sure in this.

    The rule name and the web-app name in the alert mail is very specific so no confusion there, the rule just can't be found with the powershell cmd or within the old/new portal.

  • Hello Martjes,

    I have looked at the backend logs and currently find no rules active for this website. However, we are still investigating. Can you please give me the exact time stamps when you get these alerts?

  • Hi -

    We have the same problem with our website. The alert was deleted but it still seems to active and we are getting a lot of notifications. It doesn't appear anywhere on the old/new portal. 

    Did you or anyone else know how to fix this?

  • Hello Martjes,

    We would request you to create a support ticket and we would like to check on the rules. You can follow the link to create a support ticket:

  • Hi Syed,

    Creating a ticket doesn't seem possible without a support plan, do we need to get a paid support plan to continue solving this issue...?
