    1. Azure Firewall - managed backup function

      Azure Firewall is a managed service but as of now is missing some critical operational functions like backup/restore and audit trail. Please enhance the service to automatically backup configuration (i.e. rules) and allow for restore into existing or a new instance of the Firewall. Also, enable some reporting capability that will show a history of configuration/rule modifications (add/delete/update)

    2. Rules disappear

      I've had several instances where rules are saved but then disappear. This occurs in both Edge and Chrome.

    3. Integrate Azure Firewall with Just in Time VM Access

      I'd like to get rid of my NSGs but need to keep them around for Just in Time VM Access. It would be nice if that feature integrated with Azure Firewall instead of just the Network Security Groups.

    4. Azure Firewall

      Please add the ability to protect against inbound traffic from the public internet in addition to its present ability to protect outbound traffic. If this is going to be offered as a true SaaS 'Firewall' solution, I believe this should have that true firewall protection for incoming traffic (protection against common attacks, layer 7 packet inspection, etc.)

    5. Feeback regarding Firewall Deployment on Azure

      The following feedback has been posted by one of your customers regarding Deployments of Firewalls on Azure:
      "I did not recieve a cost per day when deploying, and no indication for the monthly cost via the analysis. So i was supprised that the cost in a matter of a few days exceeded 100. It was good that I triggered a cost alert. The dashboard should provide cost of FW up front, and a way to down the FW when the rest of the machines are turned off. I would like to run the VMs only when needed, so I would…

    6. Why does it take 5 minutes+ to save changes to Azure Firewall?

      Is it possible to make it quicker to save changes to Azure Firewall? A simple rule change takes upwards of 5 minutes to complete.

    7. Add Service Tag (Internet) to Azure Firewall Network Rule

      Hello Team,

      It would be nice to add some service tags like Internet in the network rule section when we have to configure an outbound rule to allow VMs to browse the Internet. The current option only allows for IPs, which makes it a bit difficult if one wants the VM to browse the Internet.

    8. WAF fails to establish success health using the web service SAP cloud connector with custom TLS1.2 and struggled to find the issue from WAF.

      WAF fails to establish success health using the web service SAP cloud connector with custom TLS1.2 and struggled to find the issue from WAF stand point. Means, We modified multiple TLS1.2 algorithm and tested to fix the issue. Why the custom/selected TLS1.2 algo is not working? Can you build the "front end troubleshooting page or packet capture page" to select correct TLS1.2 or elect the correct TLS1.2 automatically?

      Moreover, Could you modify the name from "Listener" to "Backend Listener"? Boz, This name is really confusing with frontend certificate and backend TLS parameters.

      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. Please create a blog post discussing when FTP - Active client connections were blocked from Azure

      We had a case opened to learn that FTP - Active mode was blocked form Azure. This was documented internally at Microsoft but nothing we could find on the web or Azure documentation. Many companies still use Active FTP (not saying that is a best practice) and for these companies it would be helpful to call this issue out as a known fact for migrating to Azure (if code changes are required)

    10. Azure Firewall showing up as "Other classic resources > Deployments"

      In Cost Management + Billing, Azure firewall cost shows up under the category "Other Classic Resources > Deployments. This can be misleading. I understand that Firewall billing is billed in two ways, But it should be better designated, so resources billing can be traced.

      Thanks

    11. Create default IP Rule for IP restrictions

      When creating first IP restrictions rule in a Web Application the default rule Deny all is implemented.
      This default rule is not visible and should automatically be generated on creation of first visible rule to then be configurable with Priority numeric.
      Otherwise many users of Azure Web apps will create a rule and no realise the whole site is blocked due to this default rule being applied.

    13. Azure Firewall - NAT Rules Clarification

      The NAT rules UI is little wonky and less intuitive than I would like. I think the terms "destination" address and "translated" address could be modified to be more clear. Almost every customer that I have worked with on deployment of Azure Firewall has reversed these and hence impacted their configuration and timing for deployment. I think the UI should have F/W interface address (it should know it since it only can have one today) and the translated address field should be labeled target. That simple change would've saved a couple of customers an hour or two of frustration and…
