Service Health overview

Service Health provides you with a customizable dashboard which tracks the health of your Azure services in the regions where you use them. In this dashboard, you can track active events like ongoing service issues, upcoming planned maintenance, or relevant health advisories. When events become inactive, they get placed in your health history for up to 90 days. Finally, you can use the Service Health dashboard to create and manage service health alerts which proactively notify you when service issues are affecting you.

Service Health Events

Service Health tracks three types of health events that may impact your resources:

  1. Service issues - Problems in the Azure services that affect you right now.
  2. Planned maintenance - Upcoming maintenance that can affect the availability of your services in the future.
  3. Health advisories - Changes in Azure services that require your attention. Examples include when Azure features are deprecated or if you exceed a usage quota.


To view Service Health events, users must be granted the Reader role on a subscription.
