Azure Active Directory Access Test

Use this test to check if Azure AD is accessible over the network. Frequent breaks in connection to Azure AD can result in authentication failures/delays, which in turn can permanently damage a user's Azure experience. Prompt detection of the inaccesibility of Azure AD can help avert such disasters.

Target of the Test: A Microsoft Azure Active Directory

Agent deploying the test: A remote agent

Output of the test: One set of results for the Azure AD tenant being monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameters Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The host for which the test is to be configured.

Tenant ID

Specify the Directory ID of the Azure AD tenant to which the target subscription belongs. To know how to determine the Directory ID, refer to Configuring the eG Agent to Monitor Microsoft Azure Active Directory Using Microsoft Graph API

Client ID, Client Password, and Confirm Password

To connect to Azure AD, the eG agent requires an Access token in the form of an Application ID and the client secret value. If a Microsoft Azure Subscription component is already monitored in your environment, then you would have already created an Application for monitoring purposes. You can provide the Application ID and Client Secret value of that application here. However, if no such application pre-exists, you will have to create one for monitoring Azure AD. To know how to create such an application and determine its Application ID and Client Secret, refer to Configuring the eG Agent to Monitor Microsoft Azure Active Directory Using Microsoft Graph API. Specify the Application ID of the Application in the Client ID text box and the client secret value in the Client Password text box. Confirm the Client Password by retyping it in the Confirm Password text box.

Proxy Host

In some environments, all communication with the Azure cloud be routed through a proxy server. In such environments, you should make sure that the eG agent connects to the cloud via the proxy server and collects metrics. To enable metrics collection via a proxy, specify the IP address of the proxy server and the port at which the server listens against the Proxy Host and Proxy Port parameters. By default, these parameters are set to none, indicating that the eG agent is not configured to communicate via a proxy, by default.

Proxy Username, Proxy Password and Confirm Password

If the proxy server requires authentication, then, specify a valid proxy user name and password in the Proxy Username and Proxy Password parameters, respectively. Then, confirm the password by retyping it in the Confirm Password text box.

Measures made by the test:
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Is Azure AD accessible?

Indicates whether/not Azure AD is accessible over the network.


The values that this measure reports and their corresponding numeric values are listed in the table below:

Measure Value Numeric Value
Yes 1
No 0


By default, this measure reports the Measure Values listed in the table above to indicate whether/not Azure AD is accessible. In the graph of this measure however, the same is indicated using the numeric equivalents only.
