Application Gateway management operations are agonizingly slow
[Originally posted to Azure Portal forum - however should have been submitted here]
Most creates and updates for application gateway configuration (back-end pools, rules, listeners, certificates, etc.) take 5-10 minutes to apply. This is not a portal issue as it takes just as long via the API / CLI. (This is with even a single instance App Gateway)
Applying these same settings on Windows Server ARR directly takes only a minute or less, so I'm not sure where the performance issue lies, but there is tremendous room for improvement.
As it is currently, it provides waaaay too much time while waiting to consider the porting costs of a migration to the alternate cloud platform.
Update operations have been enhanced with fast update. The operations which continue to be slow are SSL Policy, SSL certificate, ports and scaling up/down. Most other operations like listener, rules, http settings, backend pool, backend pool members, probes should be of the order of ~1min now.

Experiencing the same, using terraform to do the heavy lifting, but its 15 mins since I ran the command and still nothing. Azure, we deserve better from you!
This is beyond ridiculous. I have wasted DAYS of labor waiting for configurations to complete in this stupid product, working out to THOUSANDS of dollars of client money. I will NEVER recommend this pile of junk solution again

Also experiencing this issue
This absolutely horrendous... I have seen anything as slow as applying changes to application gateway... sometimes I had to wait more 30 minutes for the change to fail.
Also experiencing very sloooow updates for Application Gateway
Just want to add another person to the list who is finding this quite a problem and a huge road block in productivity

wow, I thought my 5-10 minute waits were bad, I guess it could be worse, with people having 30-45 minute wait times!

I've had some updates take upwards of 45 minutes. We'd love to see some speed gains here.

Hello, we are also experiencing very slow updates too more than 30m...
Right? This has been absolutely brutal. Can we get someone to look into this?
Hello, we are also experiencing slow updates. Do you have any response for the original request?
