Getting Azure SMS Status Alerts with IFTTT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone -

    This is a bit off the wall but I am trying to get IFTTT (if you haven't tried it, try it) to send me an SMS alert based on the following feed:

    http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/status/feed

    However the trigger never fires.  For example, there was a partial outage of Azure DBs in West Europe yesterday and while I saw it on the Azure status page the RSS feed didn't seem to trigger.  I suspect the URL is incomplete.

    Wasn't sure where to post this one so I am casting a wide net.

    The goal is to receive SMS messages whenever an Azure service is degredated in any region.

    Anyone have an idea?

  • How long was the partial outage for? IFTTT polls for new RSS feeds every 15 mins I believe, and Azure RSS only displays entries while there's an issue. That means if an issue occurred and was fixed in the period between polls, IFTTT would never trigger because the RSS feed would be blank at both poll periods.
