Simplest way to get email notifications for Analytics Rules


Taking over for a recent employee departure and totally new to the Azure Sentinel space. A couple years of Azure experience so I can get around.


I see that the previous admin enabled a bunch of analytics rules and I want to get notifications for some of them. For instance, 'Azure VM Deletion' is something I'd like an email about. I don't see anything in the rule to enable alert notifications.  Thoughts?

The easiest way would be to create a small playbook that generates and sends an email on incident/alert generation. There is an example here - (I haven't used it personally but there are a heap of examples around).

Then in your analytics rule create an automation rule that triggers the playbook on alert generation.
Great, thank you. This looks entirely doable - even by a rookie like me.
