  1. Redirect to HTTPS

    Allow HTTPS only configuration to responds with 'redirect to HTTPS' when HTTP request is received. This will be very useful for the new static website storage accounts. Especially, when the wider premium 3rd party CDN is not needed.

    • Publicize the IP addresses of Microsoft CDN servers

      For Verizon servers, all used IP ranges can be retrieved using this API:
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/cdn/edgenodes/list

      It would be very useful if this API would also provide IP addresses used by Microsoft CDN servers. (E.g., for whitelisting purposes.)

        • Custom domain confirmation status is confusing

          When a user configure custom domain configuration to Azure CDN endpoint, it sometimes happens that confirmation email from DigiCert doesnt receive quickly.

          In that case, Azure portal says that "pending" on sending out the confirmation. according to CDN document, it says that confirmation email delivery could take up to 1 hour.
          If it is pending, it would be nicer if the portal could say that how many hours it required to deliver or process queued emails.

          • Use TXT DNS record for custom CDN domains

            Customers should be able to use a TXT record as a verification method instead of just sending emails via Digi Cert when using custom domains for Azure CDN.

            • Front Door - Allow choice of TLS version

              Currently Front Door supports HTTPS and custom HTTPS, but I can't choose which version of TLS used - I'd like to remove TLS 1.0 from the list of supported versions so that I'm not using known insecure versions.

              • In the rule engine of Verizon Premium CDN, %{arg_<parameter>} support url decode

                Usually the value of %{arg_<parameter>} is url-encoded, and url-decode is required for subsequent references sometime. It can provide a function or delimiter to do this, like case conversion.

                • Front Door - Allow caching of font/woff and font/woff2

                  According to the list detailed on Azure Front Door - Caching (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/frontdoor/front-door-caching#file-compression) WOFF and WOFF2 fonts are excluded from the list.

                  The general consensus is that these fonts should be served with:
                  font/woff
                  font/woff2

                  And previously as:
                  application/font-woff
                  application/font-woff2

                  It would be great if these could be included in the allowed list along with the other font definitions.

                  • Fix brotli support in Azure CDN / Microsoft Profile

                    MS Profile has brotli support -- except that it doesn't serve brotli-compressed files if the request also allows gzip. The whole point of doing brotli is to PREFER brotli, and FALL BACK to gzip. They shot themselves in the foot with this feature, making it totally useless to server Javascript and CSS to browsers.

                    • Rule engine support for standard verizon

                      Standard verizon don't support rule engine.

                      For example, i want deliver font, standard verizon can not be set a cors because this is not support rule engine.

                      Please support only frequently used settings at least.

                      • CDN Profile Feature (Rename/ Endpoint Migration)

                        Hello Team,

                        Could you please Provide an option to Rename an existing CDN endpoint.

                        also Provide an option migrate an existing endpoint from one CDN profile to another.

                        Because, The validation process runs really long so there would be a long downtime of the CDN if we stop the endpoints in the old profile and recreate them in a new one.

                          As a user of Azure DevOps for our CI/CD pipeline, some Azure CDN tools would be useful, for triggering a purge of resources for instance

                          • Multiple origins per endpoint

                            Would it be possible to setup multiples origin per CDN endpoint?

                            Example:
                            - ***.azureedge.net/foo gets its content from origin www.foo.com
                            - ***.azureedge.net/bar gets its content from origin www.bar.com

                            It would help to reduce the number of domain names used to load a website's ressources for example.

                            Thanks

                              • Upgrade the UI of CDN caching behavior on Azure Portal

                                On Azure Standard Verizon CDN, if we set origin path for the CDN origin when we set the custom caching rules for the CDN endpoint, we must add the origin path to the beginning of the URL path.

                                However, this is no description about this on the custom caching rule page.

                                Could you please add the description on the UI so we will be not confused about this in the future?

                                Thanks a lot.

                                Best Regards,

                                Lucy

                                      Please establish servers in Pakistan and Dubai as there are no nearby servers for Pakistan. The minimum latency that we get here in Pakistan is around 250ms which is too high for developing projects and playing online games from your servers.

                                      • Fix HTTP/2 Prioritization

                                        HTTP/2 is supported as a protocol but is effectively broken and resources are delivered out of order. It takes coordination of the software stack from the edge server through to the networking stack to make sure excessive data isn't buffered (including on the network with bufferbloat).

                                        Proper prioritization is critical for web performance and particularly for HTTP/2 where the server is responsible for honoring it.

                                        There is a GitHub repository with information on how to test for it as well as tracking support across CDN's and hosting providers: https://github.com/andydavies/http2-prioritization-issues
