A common ask is how to visualize alerts from Azure Monitor on an Azure dashboard. Publishing data, including alerts, from Azure Monitor, can be accomplished with a workbook.

With Azure Monitor workbooks, we can create interactive reports based on collected data. Read more about Workbooks at Microsoft Docs.

In this example, we visualize new active alerts on an Azure Dashboard. We start with an empty workbook and add a query tile.

Configure the query, note that we use Alerts as data source and no summary of the result. We have also configured the query to show only New Fired alerts.

Use Column Settings to hide columns that should not be displayed.

Once we are happy with the look of the result, we can click PIN, and pin the panel to a dashboard. When in Edit mode of a tile, we can pin that specific tile. We can also use pin in the top toolbar to pin all parts of a workbook to a dashboard.
