Azure Event Grid

Azure Event Grid is a fully-managed intelligent event routing service that allows for uniform event consumption using a publish-subscribe model. Use Azure Event Grid to react to relevant events across both Azure and non-Azure services in near-real time fashion.

  1. Header pass-through

    For a custom topic, it would be nice if http headers were passed through the eventgrid. This way extra information (like correlationid, token) could be passed through the eventgrid.

  2. Allow EventGrid to add authentication headers on requests it makes to endpoints

    At the moment when EventGrid calls an http endpoint it only allows authentication information to be passed along in the querystring - which means that authentication information can be logged in IIS logs.

    It would be better to allow the option for Event Grid to use an authentication header (such as integrating with AAD to obtain a service token) to prevent leakage of tokens.

  5. Static public IP address

    I wish it had a static IP address or IP range which can be allowed on firewall for communication with resources within a VNet or atleast a VNet service endpoint.
    How are we supposed to allow Event grid talk to API sitting inside a Vnet without disabling the firewall?

  6. Advanced filtering scenarios, Subject Wildcard, Regex & Data Filters

    The subscription filters are very limited, I can only filter the events based on subject and Event Type, and the current filter options does not help much for advanced scenarios.

    It would be more flexible if we could define filters by regex or wildcard on EventTypes and Subjects, and also have filters on data attributes


    • EventType using WildCards.

    • -> Use: [ "Microsoft.Storage.", "Microsoft.EventHub."]

    • -> Instead of: [ "Microsoft.Storage.BlobCreated", "Microsoft.Storage.BlobDeleted" ]


    • Subject filter by WildCard, Contains or Regex:


    • -> Use > subject : match("blobServices/default/containers/mycontainer/log/*.jpg")

    • -> Or > subject : match("blobServices/default/containers/mycontainer/log/*.[jpg|gif|png]")

    • -> Or > subject : contains([.jpg|.gif|.png])

    • -> Or >…

    With our new advanced filters, we’ve added data attribute filters and StringContains as an operator (among many others). Take a look and let us know what you think!

    We will likely not add wildcards and regex for quite some time due to the compute and latency costs it would incur, however, we think, most of the use-cases described (and more) can be addressed with our new filters: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/event-grid/event-filtering#advanced-filtering

  7. Allow Webhooks to be delivered into VNETS

    Currently Webhook events can only be delivered to public IPs.

    For security reasons, we have a situation where we liked to be Webhook events to be delivered to VMs, Kubernetes Clusters etc. inside a VNET.

    As the target VNET can only be configured with permissions to this VNET, this would also ease the for requirements on authentication on both sides (for which there are other improvement suggestions).

  9. Add Append Block Event on Blob of type Append Blob in Storage Blob Containers

    Today BlobCreated event support only Block Blobs.
    For Append Blob there is only 1 event when Blob is created with size 0
    and there no events of Append Block which actually write to the blob data. As a result - no visibility that Blob was written with any data, just visibility of empty blob creation :/

  10. New Event Publisher for Azure AD

    I would like to see an event in Azure Event Grid when a new user gets created in Azure AD (also update and delete).
    Best would be to have a Microsft Graph integration in Event Grid:
    Subscribe to events in Microsoft Graph which in turn get published to Event Grid...

  11. Allow batching of events to Azure Functions

    Currently only a single event can be pushed to an Azure Function.
    Would be nice to have batching functionality like Event Hubs has for Azure Functions:

  12. AdvancedFilters (2018-09-15-preview) - add more operatorTypes

    Currently this preview has available the following operators for strings:

    StringContains
    StringBeginsWith
    StringEndsWith
    StringIn
    StringNotIn

    I am supprise what was a reason to not implemented the following operators:

    StringNotContains
    StringNotBeginsWith
    StringNotEndsWith

    beside that, we don't have a wildcard (*) feature to simplify expression.

    Please, could you add the above operators in this preview?

    Thanks
    Roman

  13. Bug/Feature: Support DateTimeOffset instead converting to UTC

    When passing a DateTime(Offset), EventGrid takes the liberty of converting it to a UTC DateTime, which is really not acceptable. I assume this happens when EventGrid deserializes the data, but it should really not change the content of the data property in any way. So, could you please add an option on a topic to configure this behaviour?

    An example payload would be:

    {

    "cloudEventsVersion": "0.1",
    
    "eventType": "SomeType",
    "eventTypeVersion": "1",
    "source": "#something",
    "eventID": "173d9985-401e-0075-2497-de268c06ff25",
    "eventTime": "2018-04-28T02:18:47.1281675Z",
    "data": {
    "DateInUtc": "2018-04-28T02:18:47.1281675Z",
    "DateWithOffset": "2018-04-28T02:18:47.1281675+03:00"
    }

    }

    This then results in (see the changed value of ‘DateWithOffset’):
    {

    "cloudEventsVersion": "0.1",
    
    "eventType": "SomeType",
    "eventTypeVersion":

  14. CloudEvents schema: Variables in WebHook url

    Since in CloudEvents 0.1 we deliver single events, it would be useful to be able to pass event properties into the webhook url. This would allow easy routing on the subscriber side. For example a spec version variable and an eventType variable would allow for an webhook url like this:

    https://api.someservice.com/{cloudEventsVersion}/{eventType}/{eventTypeVersion}
    which would result in something like
    https://api.someservice.com/0.1/com.someservice.contacts.added/1.0

    We could then easily build an api that supports all kind of versions and eventTypes without a long list of single eventType subscribtions.

  15. Enable/Disable Event Subscriptions

    I often test my event grid subscriptions locally using ngrok, as suggested in some of the tutorials. The problem is that when I want to switch between test endpoints and production endpoints, I have to copy-and-paste the appropriate endpoint in the subscription configuration.
    What I'd like to see is a "Enable" checkbox for event subscriptions. I would have a subscription for both test and production endpoints, and only enable the one I want to use.

  16. Routing Event Grid Event to a specific partition in Event Hub

    While creating event subscription and using eventhub as endpoint there is no way of specifying the partitionID to which all messages should be sent.This is used mainly to preserve ordering so that all events for the same publisher land in the same partition.
    This feature is available via event hubs SDK.
    Since Event Grid is now becoming the primary event routing service it would be good if we can add a feature of routing events to a particular partition to ensure ordering.

  17. CloudEvents schema: Use 'ce-*' instead of 'aeg-*' headers and include eventType header

    According to the spec 0.1 CloudEvents support a range of headers. I have tried to use them in the NorthEurope region but failed to receive them.
    My idea was to build an aspnetcore app and route the requests based on the 'CE-EventType' as described here:
    https://github.com/cloudevents/spec/blob/v0.1/http-transport-binding.md#3132-http-header-values

    Unfortunately I can not see any 'ce-' headers at all, only the existing 'aeg-' headers, which are covering some properties, but unfortunately not the eventType.

    So my request would be to use the 'ce-' headers if the subscriptions delivery-schema is set to cloudeventv01schema.

  18. Generate signature header for event consumers

    My team is exploring using Event Domains to provide webhook capabilities to 3rd party consumers. A few of our stakeholders have concerns about relying on a query string parameter as the security mechanism to protect webhook consumers from spoofed event payloads.

    Ideally, our event consumers would be able to verify the sender of an event by inspecting a signature somewhere in their request (likely a header) that only "we" (or Event Grid) can generate.

    However, in order for us to do this as event producers, our team would either need to employ one, global, difficult-to-rotate private/public key combo for all…

  19. Enable Virtual Network Service Endpoints for Event Grid

    Hello Event Grid team!

    We are an internal Microsoft team that uses Event Grid heavily in Azure Functions.

    We would like to ask what is the ETA for you to support Service Endpoints for Event Grid, such that we can access Event Grid from inside our virtual network, as opposed to going through NAT port translation. This is an important feature to us because traffic that goes through the virtual network does not count against the number of outbound connections, which are limited and can cause SNAT port exhaustion.
