Azure updates feed broken, June 2024

Microsoft is currently undergoing maintenance and is not providing RSS feeds for Azure updates. The last regular updates was on June 3rd, 2024. For me, this is a major inconvenience.

Azure Updates website is undergoing maintenance. During this time, you may notice limited functionality affecting RSS feeds and search features. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Critical updates and retirements will also be communicated via emails and service health alerts.

The alternative fallback is here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/azure-updates/bg-p/AzureUpdates

But this is no longer easily machine readable.

This once more points out the importance of the service health alerts which should be monitored for every resource.

I still hope that this service limitation will end soon, but for now, I haven’t seen any plans for when the service will return to regular operation.
