How can we improve Azure CDN?

Provide API to access CDN Supplemental Management Portal

API is needed to add new rules (e.g. Country Filtering, Token Auth, etc.) for newly added content.

Use case: User adds new video content in CMS where he is able to block this video in some regions.

Work has started on both moving capabilities that are only available in the CDN Supplemental Portal (e.g. rules engine) into the Azure Portal and also providing API’s to support all of these features. This work will be done in multiple phases over the next several months.

    Yes, really looking forward to this capability. Cannot believe this still requires manual steps, it would be very important to be able to automate the rules engine part for instance to ip restrict CDN content of test environments.

    What is the current status for this improvement? Configuring CDN rules manually is tedious and error prone.

    This is really important to manage the CDN configuration in a DevOps environment. Furthermore, it would be great to be able to read CDN stats via the APIs to be able to gather stats in an external metrics dashboard.

    Anton, is there any way of tracking this work (specifically REST API for rules)?

    Also, is it possible to provision rules with deployment templates?
