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 the feedback, we’ll include it as part of our Service Tag program to allow customers to easily define traffic for Windows Updates.

Adding my name too.
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.
