How can we improve Azure Networking?

Authentication support for application gateway

For lift & shift of legacy systems, application gateway is very useful as we have different kinds of backends (VMs, service fabric, other PaaS services, etc.). The only missing capability is authentication, so we have to implement and configure authentication in various services, which is a big overhead. Otherwise, we have to give up application gateway but set up Nginx VMs instead.

I have also looked at Azure API Gateway, but it seems to be too specialized for public APIs but our services also service static contents and ever-changing private APIs without swagger definition.
