    1. support ESI (Edge Side Includes) in the Application Gateway and CDN like Vanish or Akamai.

      ESI can be a great feature for server side content based integration ( transclude of html fragments ) in a microservice architecture. For more information please read : ( https://gustafnk.github.io/microservice-websites/#integrating-on-content ).

    2. Pathbased rules are case sensitive for WAF_v2

      Hello,
      It seems as the 'Paths' of Pathbased rules of Azure Application Gateway with tier 'WAF_v2' are case sensitive.

      f.eks: when pathbased rule path is /foo, only 'http://gatwaydns:port/foo' will fire that path rule while 'http://gatwaydns:port/Foo' will not.

      this can become blocking if there exist multiple clients where case sensitivity has not been of consirn.

      Please fix.
      Thanks.

    3. Allow APGW redirection from the root path

      Allow an Application Gateway's path-based rules to accept a forward slash ( / ) as a valid path.
      As of the time of writing this, trying to save such a configuration results in the following error:

      failed to save configuration changes to application gateway 'APGWNAME'. Error: Path / should have a nonempty match value followed by '/' in PathRule RESOURCEGROUP/providers/Microsoft.Network/applicationGateways/APGWNAME/urlPathMaps/RULENAME/pathRules/REDIRECTRULENAME'>APGWNAME/RULENAME/REDIRECTRULENAME.

    4. Support traffic fork/shadowing/mirror on application gateway.

      Support traffic fork/shadowing/mirror on application gateway. Sometimes we need send shadow traffic to a testing/staging environment, and the best place to do this is layer 7 load balancer..

    5. Allow IP range whitelist for Application Gateway WAF IPS/IDS

      We have a range of web apps behind an Application Gateway (WAF in IPS mode) that need to be scanned on at least monthly basis for PCI compliance. We need to be able to whitelist the range of the scanners used by Qualys otherwise we get a FAIL for "Possible Scan Interference".

      Threat:
      Possible scan interference detected.

      A PCI scan must be allowed to perform scanning without interference from intrusion detection systems or intrusion prevention systems.
      The PCI ASV is required to post fail if scan interference is detected.

    6. "Azure Managed" SSL certificates for Application gateway for SSL offloading

      Please add the ability to use a Azure managed certificate for the application gateway for the use of SSL offloading. This feature would be nice so that we would not have to manage the certificate and it would auto update instead of us having to keep the certificate up to date.

    7. Improve SSL Certificate Installs

      The process of updating your existing SSL certificates on an application gateway is overly complicated. Focus on making this a better user experience that doesn't require power shell and with clear instructions and documentation. Renewing SSL certificates isn't a task anyone wants to do and today's poor user experience is a detriment to the product.

    8. Application Gateway frontend PublicIP should allow a Reverse FQDN

      Currently Application Gateways can have Public IPs with a DNS label, however modifying the Public IP adding an FQDN via:

      $pip.DnsSettings.ReverseFqdn = "<my.domain.com>"

      is currently not allowed. This is a request to allow Reverse FQDNs for Application Gateway frontend Public IPs.

      Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

    9. Static public outbound IP for Application Gateway v1

      We use Application Gateway v1 because it has the possibility to assign a static private frontend IP.
      Now we would love to see the possibility to assign a static public IP for outbound traffic.

    10. Accept request only from specific source IP address

      I'm raising this again as the original from someone else was declined, possibly due to lack of clarity on purpose.

      On an app gateway that has multiple listeners, there might be a need for listener A to be accessible from IP x and listener B to be accessible from IP y.

      Using an NSG, only the whole of the App Gateway can have rules associated with it. I can't have listener A accept from one IP and listener B from another as listeners do not have a distinct identity that can be referenced in an NSG.

      The only way around…

    13. Make Application Gateway v2 available in Swiss regions

      We have several application gateways in both Swiss regions. However v1 have many limitations and we would like to use v2.

      Please make it available in both Swiss regions.

    14. Setting a probe port other than a service port in Application Gateway.

      Currently, Probing port in Application Gateway is the same with a service port.
      For example, if it configures HTTP(80) port as backend port, Probing port would be HTTP(80) port.

      In some application, it could not response correctly to HTTP/HTTPS probing by service port.
      So it is better for us to set a probe port other than a service port like a probe port is 80 and service port is 8080.

    15. Add Application Gateway support for Azure DevOps tasks

      Add Application Gateway support for Azure DevOps tasks. Currently public IP address is needed for release pipeline tasks like copying files and running PowerShell on Azure VM's.

      Here's a link to the statement that VM's are not supported behind Application Gateways: https://github.com/Microsoft/azure-pipelines-tasks/issues/3235#issuecomment-448126585

    16. Azure Application Gateway DNS refresh time for backend with FQDN

      After adding a backend using a FQDN to Application Gateway Backend Pool the domain name is cached forever (or until the gateway is updated).

      If the IP addresses for this backend changes and the cached once stop working the health probe for all the hosts will start to fail and the backend will soon become entirely offline (although it actually is working fine using the new IP addresses).

      Having a setting for how often to update a backend (or all backends) cached domain would make the gateway backends be much more stable compared to today. This could be compared to…

    17. ILB only mode for Application Gateway V2

      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-gateway/application-gateway-autoscaling-zone-redundant#differences-with-v1-sku

      We are using Application Gateway regularly on internal services and we want to use V2 mainly because its faster, but we don't want to expose our services externally even by mistake - so because there is public frontend ip address, it is no-go far us until there ILB only is possible.

    18. Add more metrics to better analyse capacity, firewall violations, etc

      Analysis via Log Analytics is useful, but it'd be nice to have some predefined reports or "blades" in Azure Portal to analyse events, throughput, capacity/utilization.

    20. Better visibility for Instance count, CPU and Memory utilization on Application Gateway

      There should be a better and clean way to see Instance count, CPU and Memory utilization on Application Gateway, rather than going thru doing calculations on Throughput/Connection/SSL provided in this document:
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-gateway/application-gateway-metrics

      It would help immensely if these 3 metrics are available for what they are and present the data for immediate glance and not do calculations. We dont have to open a case to see this data, every time it is needed.
