Microsoft Azure pros share their latest insights on Key Vault change notifications with Event Grid, assigning AD roles and the changes in Stack Hub update 2005.

Change notifications for Azure Key Vault with Event Grid

Microsoft MVP Tobias Zimmergren explored ways to secure and audit Azure Key Vault using automatic notifications. Key Vault uses Event Grid for events, which are listed under the event schema for Key Vault docs. Users can hook up a wide-variety of types, such as Certificates, Keys and Secrets.

He noted that when setting up events, users should keep in-mind the importance of validating where the event came from. For example, a single Event Grid can manage events from multiple Key Vaults, spanning multiple subscriptions. To demonstrate a setup process, Zimmergren populated Azure Storage queues with events and went ahead with defining details like schema, topics and event types. He wrote:

Azure Portal allows us to create new Event Subscriptions in an Azure Key Vault. Here we are creating a new event for the Azure Storage Queue endpoint. I selected all 10 available events from the dropdown, ensuring I get notifications about everything that I can.

Users are able to configure the dead letter and retry policy defining what happens if events can’t be delivered to storage. Additionally, filters can be defined for events, like subject filters and advanced filters. Every event includes unique details but presented in a common form in code.
