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. Allow wildcards in prefix ("subjectBeginsWith") and suffix ("subjectEndsWith") filters

    When creating an event subscription, I'd like to use wildcards (*) in the prefix filter and/or the suffix filter.

    For example, I would specify the following value for "subjectBeginsWith" to get virtual machines events in any resource group using an asterisk (*) in place of the resource group name :

    /subscriptions/<subscription-id>/resourcegroups/*/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines

    Thanks.

    • Capture Failed Delivery to Subscriber

      For Event Grid, we really need a way to capture a failed delivery of a message. After 24 hours, we need to understand if the message was not delivered to a specific Subscriber so we can take action. Even if this was just a notification or and event that was triggered, it would be just better than just having the message getting thrown out.

      • New Event Publisher: Azure AD B2C

        It would be great if we could easily add an azure ad b2c as an event publisher so we can get informed about new, updated or deleted users. Ideally also when they get added or removed to groups etc.

        • 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…

              • 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:

                • Event Grid integration with Service Bus Standard Edition

                  It would be good if Event Grid is integrated with Service Bus Standard Edition . As of now Event grid can listen to only premium tier service bus events. By supporting Standard edition of Service bus ,it will increase event driven messaging adoption .

                  • 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...

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                              • 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.

                                  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.

                                    • Azure Event Grid available in more regions

                                      I like the idea of Event Grid. But we cannot use it unless it becomes available for regions we are using for our software.

                                      For us the missing region is Australia.

                                      • Allow/Deny the Publisher for specific Event Types

                                        Allow / Deny Publisher for specific Event Types to publish to the Event Grid. Otherwise we have to build a router service for this.
