Pre-requisites for Monitoring Microsoft Azure Traffic Managers

As mentioned already, to monitor an Azure Traffic Manager, the eG agent should be configured to connect to the Azure cloud and make Azure ARM REST API calls. For this purpose, you need to do the following:

  • Register an Application with an Azure AD Tenant;

  • Determine the Tenant ID, the Application (Client) ID and Secret Key value associated with the registered Application;

  • Assign the Application to a Subscription and grant 'monitoring' rights to it

Refer to Configuring the eG Agent to Monitor Microsoft Azure Traffic Managers Using Azure ARM REST API topic to know how to perform each of the steps discussed above.
