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. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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…

              • 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.

                      • 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...

                          • 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…

                            • Make the authentication more flexible, permit keys via QueryString and Anonymous Access

                              Event Grid makes custom event integration hard to implement because it requires an authentication key to be passed as part of the request header, but many applications are not flexible enough to define custom headers on webhooks, so it limits a wide usage.

                              Expected scenario:
                              I would expect to choose different ways of sending the key, via headers, via query-strings or anonymous access.

                                • Allow to specifiy a delay for event delivery

                                  Would be great to be able to specify a delay after which an event becomes visible. This way, an event source could generate an event that would be delivered to subscribers after some time. In a way, it would be similar to the ability to specify delay in queues. Ideally, this delay could range from a few milliseconds to a few months.

                                  • Filter Azure Subscription topics by resource type

                                    It seems like a common requirement to filter events from an Azure Subscription topic by resource type, but this is currently not possible. The subject of these events contains a resource ID, which of course has the resource type in the middle. This means we can't use the supports startsWith/endsWith filters to filter by resource Type.

                                    • Custom topics should enable user / group based event filtering

                                      Have a look at Azure search how they solved the AAD user / group based filtering of results, a similar mechnism for events would make a lot of sense.
