BEEMUG Summer Night: 05/09/2019

12:55 pm in Azure, beemug, eveningevent, free, Workplace&Mobility by Wim Matthyssen


A lot of you are still enjoying a well-earned vacation with family or friends. But we at BEEMUG are already planning our first evening event after summer, which will be held on Thursday 05/09!


During this evening you will have the opportunity to mingle with peers, learn something and meet your local community leaders to ask the questions you have always wanted to ask.

Following our new concept, we changed the location for the event to give everyone the opportunity to (at least once) get there without facing heavy traffic. This time we found a location in Ghent.

The formula is still straightforward and simple: we deliver one session in the field of Workplace and Mobility and one in Cloud and Datacenter with time to network in between the sessions.

The agenda for this evening:

Timeslot Speaker(s) Track
18:00u – 19:00u Welcome + Food & Drinks
19:00u – 20:00u Tim De Keukelaere
Ken Goossens
Session 1: Mobile Device Management, BYOD vs Fully managed devices
20:00u – 20:30u Pitstop
20:30u – 21:30u Wim Matthyssen
Christophe Lams
Session 2: 7 habits every Azure Admin must have
21:30u – …. Network drink

This edition, Cegeka is so kind to host the event at their office in Ghent and they will also sponsor the catering. Also, your parking ticket will be validated at the end of the evening.



Cegeka Business Solutions NV

Sluisweg 2 Bus 9
9000 Ghent


Parking B – Ghelamco Arena (next to Brico), Cegeka offices are located at the 4th floor.


So please already mark your agenda’s and join us once again for a cool night out and learn something while you’re at it!

Create an Azure Monitor action group with Azure PowerShell

12:40 pm in action groups, automation, Azure, Azure Monitor, Azure PowerShell, beemug by Wim Matthyssen

Azure Monitor, Microsoft’s built-in monitoring service, allows you to monitor and gain more visibility into the state of your resources from a single place in the Azure portal, to help you quickly find and fix problems.

To notify users that an alert has been triggered, Azure Monitor (and also Service Health alerts) uses action groups. This feature allows an owner of an Azure subscription to group a collection of actions to take when an alert is triggered. Owners can create an action group with functions such as sending an email or SMS, as well as calling a webhook and re-use it across multiple alerts. Action groups can be created through the Azure portal, but to automate the process you can also use Azure PowerShell.

In the below example a new action group, called email-ag, is created. To use the script, copy it and adjust it for your own purpose. Save it as .ps1.


You can check all existing action groups in your subscription, by running the below cmdlet. In my example the previously created action group email-ag is shown.


Like earlier said, you can also Add, validate or manage action groups through the Azure portal by opening Monitor, selecting Alerts and selecting Manage action groups. For more information you can check out the documentation page.



Hope the script comes in handy!
