Add a Network Security Group tag for Windows Update
I'd like to be able to block all outbound traffic on my NSG but still allow windows update to work. This is difficult to do as the windows update depends on quite a few DNS names and the IP address of these apparently changes often.
If I could specify an "Allow" rule for a service tag called "WindowsUpdate" or similar with a higher priority than my "DenyAll" rule this would acheive this.
Thanks for your feedback, we are working on this.

How is this not built-in from day 1?

adding my name too.. yes we need this asap.
adding my name too. I got a few projects in small environments and will use the azure patch management service. Need to block outbound internet to comply. I Hope they create a NSG TAG for this.
@Anavi N [MSFT], This is not even a nice to have, it is essential in todays compliance driven world. When can we expect this to be delivered?

Adding my name to this to. Currently have a case open with Microsoft where they said they are working on this. With no ETA still
This will never be implemented :))

Has there been any update to this? It would be nice if we can just block all and add only the update services.

Prompting again because this is really holding us back from implementing simple IaaS within Azure - so many hurdles to go through to support this!
please add this service TAG to NSG's and Azure Firewall

I too would also like this feature. A *********** test of our Azure environment identified that we should lock down access to the internet for the VM and I would like to do this through an outbound NSG rule blocking everything and then add a rule above it to allow access to Windows Update services.

Any news about this feature? I think that this service tag is very important for costumers that use Windows VM from azure.
Thanks a lot
Last positive response from Azure Network Team was on December 08, 2017 . However still this is not available. Can anyone confirm on this if this is really now available?
Adding our name to this one too. Would be very very useful.
