Occasional Visitor

Hello,

I have to configure an app service that needs to be monitored and notify a set of users when it is down.

Cause can be anything, if a dev messed up or Azure servers are down or not responding.

 

Right now, I am just using Activity Log's Service Stopped to check for it.
What more conditions can be added to make it work in many scenarios as possible?

@meStupid, the simplest/best solution for your need is Application Insights Availability Tests:
