  • Walk through the rest of the required items from Azure, nothing is explicitly required in the next sections for the Vanta test to pass. More information on how to do this is documented here!

Common Reasons For Failure:

  • The query has been created, but an alert rule has not been created. Ensure that you have completely created and saved the alert rule.
  • Ensure that the log alert is enabled. This can also be seen from the test data (see below)
  • Vanta cannot see the the Alert Rule. Ensure that the test data shows the alerts in your Azure instance:

What Vanta is checking:

  • Vanta is checking that at least one of these alerts exists on a resource in your account and that it is active. It is up to your organization to determine which resources require alerts, and which metrics are used in the alerts.

Then check that one that is enabled has the signal type of "log search":
