Display Azure status history in a SharePoint site with a web part


Symptom

Consider this scenario:

  • You attempt to display the Application Program Interface (API) status history for several Microsoft cloud APIs in a SharePoint site.
  • You use the Azure RSS feed with the RSS Viewer web part.
  • You attempt to view the status for each of your APIs but only see one status item. That one displayed doesn’t refresh often.

Resolution

Insert the XML Viewer Web Part into a SharePoint page. Then set the XML Link property to the Azure statushistoryapi page with the desired query string parameters. See the following example:

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/statushistoryapi/?serviceSlug=all&regionSlug=us-central&startDate=20160702&page=1

More Information

Azure provides history data at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/status/history/. The web request to get the data with variable filters can be captured with Fiddler Trace. This request corresponds to these filters:

  •  Product: All
  •  Region: Central US
  •  Date: Most recent

The data retrieved is in XML format, which can be consumed with the XML Viewer Web Part rather than the RSS Viewer web part.
