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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Check for null/not null in Event Grid Advanced Filters

    Add advanced filter options to Event Grid subscriptions to allow filtering on whether a specific data node exists (or does not exist) or does/does not contain a `null` value

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Deplying Event Grid Domains via ARM template

    2 weeks ago Event Grid Domains came out of preview, but there doesn't seem to be a way to deploy these via an ARM template.

    Or are ARM templates no longer the preferred way of deploying resources from Azure DevOps?

  18. Advanced Editor in Portal UI should work

    In the Portal UI, when creating an event subscription, there is an Advanced Editor tab. You can use this to create an ARM-style JSON template for the subscription. It could be a very convenient way to quickly create a number of event subscriptions, but it cannot actually be used.

    The "Create" button at the bottom of the screen only works when focused on the "Basic" tab. But changes in the Advanced Editor do are not reflected in the Basic or Additional Features tab. If you go to the Basic tab to hit Create and then back to the Advanced Editor…

  19. 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

  20. 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.
