OpsRamp consumes your Azure events. To use Azure Event Grid, you need to select the Azure resource you would like to subscribe to, and enter the event handler to send the event to. Event Grid has built-in support for events coming from Azure services, such as storage blobs, and resource groups. Event Grid also has support for your own events, using custom topics.

An event handler is the place where the event is sent. The handler takes some further action to process the event. Several Azure services are automatically configured to handle events.
