Description

Azure Cosmos DB is a fully managed NoSQL database for modern app development. The Cosmos DB - {AzureCosmosDb} is configured with disabled Automatic Failover feature. The Automatic Failover feature allows Azure Cosmos DB to failover to the Azure cloud region with the highest failover priority when the source region becomes unavailable, without any additional action from the application or the user.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to review the cosmos db configuration and enable Automatic Failover in order to enable resource replication and fault tolerance at the account level.
