How can we improve Azure Networking?

Support URL rewriting with Application Gateway

PathBasedRouting is nice, but not super great without the ability to rewrite paths. I am trying to front a Service Fabric cluster, where multiple HTTP services live on http://+:80, at different path prefixes. Would be nice to use Application Gateway to direct https://api.company.com to http://cluster/api, and https://www.company.com to http://cluster/www

    How is this not done yet? These requests date back to 2016!!! Why is there no ETA? Do you think everything maps perfectly? Please make this the next feature you add otherwise it is useless for 50% of the use cases.

    + 3 Votes, Need this now. Any ETA for this feature please ?

    This should be very high up on the priority list. When could some ETA be provided on this ?

    It only maps different URL patterns to different backends. It still passes the original URL as-is. Rewriting is about modifying the URL before it is sent to the backend. The application gateway is not yet capable of doing this.

    +3 Votes and followed up with local microsoft teams, this should be very high up on the priority list.

    When is there going to be a ETA on this ?

    whats the ETA for this feature?
    i find it essential for any fine grained API gateway product.
    in addition the exact same functionality is implemented in the Azure API management so i honestly cant understand why it shouldn't be available in the API gateway.

    Just another customer who would like this feature. Looks like it has been in the works for over a year.

    I think this is much required feature as on Apps using ARR cannot be ported to App Gateway if URL rewriting feature is not available. At-least a basic rule engine has to be there.

    Even a Http to Https Redirect which is a basic requirement cannot achieved. I do not want to use an third-party WAF solution

    Wondering when this feature would be supported. We have 50k sub domains that we would like to do URL rewrites on right now we have to service them with VMs because of custom subdomain limit on webapps. I am looking for this feature for SSL. Main reason we have example Shop.User1.contso.com would like to change it to user1.contso.com/shop on rewrite. There is 3rd party products that can do it.
