Add "Allow access to Azure services" in Azure App Service IP restrictions
Re this thread
I'd used PowerShell to manually add IP restrictions a couple of weeks ago. Right away my App Insights availability tests started failing so I narrowed the test location down to Dublin IE and allowed those IP/Subnets.
Add an option similar to SQL Server "Allow access to Azure services" That white lists Azure App insights availability tests for selected regions.
There was some confusion about this feature due to the documentation for it and UX originally released had a bug.
The IP Restrictions feature works as an ALLOW list, rather than a DENY list as originally stated.
The ask here is still valid, there are other services in azure (like SQL) that have UI to explicitly allow other azure services to reach the database. While this is convenient for development scenarios, it’s not a good idea for securing the resource.
We’ll keep an eye on this request and see if it gathers more up-votes.
