Export all alerts created in a OMS Workspace to csv


Hi all,

Today I bring you a little script for exporting all the alerts you have created in a OMS workspace, this is useful for alert management and for having documentation about it’s configuration.

It creates a CSV like this:

When you run it, it will list all the alerts it is getting.

Be patient it will take some time, but let[s discuss how this works.

The hierarchy for alerts in the rest API works like this:

In order to get the workspace you want and it’s resource group you need to get it like this:

"/subscriptions/$SubscriptionId/providers/Microsoft.OperationalInsights/workspaces?api-version=2015-03-20"

This will get you all workspaces.

After that we need to select the workspace we want, we have a variable with that name and we need to get it from the list we got on the previous command.

ForEach($Workspace in $allWorkspaces.value)
{

if($Workspace.name -eq $WorkspaceID)
{

$url = $Workspace.id

}

}

This will go through all the WS in my subscription and add to the URL variable the one I want by name, noticed that I[m using the .value in the foreach, that’s because when I convert the request response from json, and I need to access values like this, then instead of using .value.name, inside the same cycle I can just call the .name inside WorkspaceID variable.

This URL is the base for everything, next on our hierarchy we will need to get all our saved searches:

"$url/savedsearches?api-version=2015-03-20"

If you notice from now on we will use the base $url we got for everything.

Once we have searches the next level is schedule for those searches, each schedule URL could look like this:

"$url/$savedsearch/schedules?api-version=2015-03-20"

And at the end we get the type of schedules, this could be or not associated with an alert, each schedule has a value.properties.Type which will tell us if this is an alert or not.

You can use armclient which is the one i use in this script and it[s a prerequisite for running it, you can get it here: https://github.com/projectkudu/ARMClient

All configuration instructions are n the script itself, you can get it in the next link:
