About lab assessment
Lab assessments are Hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.
Lab description

Demonstrate your monitoring and alerting operational skills using Azure Cloud Platform resources in this lab assessment.

This hands-on lab assessment will test your practical ability to modify a solution in a production-like Azure environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the lab assessment.

You will be presented with a set of tasks organized into three levels of difficulty: Beginner (1), Intermediate (2), and Advanced (3).
