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.

How can we improve Azure Event Grid?

  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.

    • 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…

        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

      • 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:

          • 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:

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  Allow KeyVault to emit events using Event Grid when secret, certificate or permission changes. That will help customers react to KeyVault events like a secret value or content type changed or a secret is enabled or disabled or a permission on KeyVault changed etc

                  • 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.

                    • Provide Clear command for EventGrid

                      During development EventGrid can easily become full of events that you don't want to process. We need an easy way to clear the queue - i.e. something like the old MQSeries clear command. This should be available programmatically as well as from Azure Portal.

                      • 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.

                            • Better Azure Portal commands

                              Azure Portal should provide more command to support Azure Event Grid. For example,

                              STOP/START = stops any events being accepted. This is a useful way to take something out of service

                              CLEAR = clears all events from EventGrid - very useful during development - see other post

                              I would also like a summary of my queue like last message details, number of messages waiting, messages set for retry, etc. This might be available in Application Insights, but that's a nuclear option for me.

                              • Custom Events should be schema agnostic

                                When I first read about the idea of custom events, I would expect to ingest any kind of event, straight from the producer to event grid topic without any transformation required.

                                In example, if I want to receive a commit event from github via webhook to Event Grid, I have to receive it through a middleware(azure function) to parse it to EventGrid expected schema, otherwise it will fail, and this brings a lot extra work that should not be necessary, also makes my producer coupled with Event Grid.
                                If I have to build up all these things to make the…

                                • Signing requests and verifying signature on response

                                  We are exploring using Domain Events in a multi tenant financial environment to allow our customers to get notifications around transaction status changes. However, our webhooks need to be signed and the response from the customer must also be signed with a digital signature. Unfortunately Event Grid only requires a 200 response in order to consider a webhook successful whereas we would also require the response to be signed with the correct signature. It would be nice if we could add custom rules/policies that have to be fulfilled for the response to be deemed successful.
                                  Perhaps introduce request/response policies similar…

                                  • Reuse of Event Grid subscribers

                                    It would be great to reuse a subscriber(endpoint) such a Webhook. A dropdown where its possible to choose already configured endpoints.
                                    If the same webhook is used for several topics and it needs to be changed (e.g. auth code on Azure Function) it would have been great to do it once and not on all endpoints.

                                    • 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?

                                      • 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
