  1. Azure Policy - Support for RegEx in Match Conditions

    Right now, the "Match" and "notMatch" conditions only support # for digit placeholders and ? for letters. This is okay, but it would be much more useful to support regex expressions. This would needed for define complex naming policies and tagging standards.

  2. Allow more rich symbols while using Match in Policy definition

    I am using Management groups and wanted to roll out multiple naming policy.
    I have various clients hence thought of a consistent manner to support and organize Resource groups/Resources in a consistent way. i.e <Cleint>-<Prod/Dev>-RGP-<Name>.
    So it would sort out like
    CL1-PROD-RGP-MyFirstRG
    CL1-PROD-RGP-AnotherOne
    CL2-DEV-RGP-NNNN
    CL3-PROD-RGP-aaa

    but unfortunately found that match could not support a symbol which would represent letter or number in same symbol. Details can be seen in the closed feedback thread on the following page.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-policy/scripts/allow-multiple-name-patterns

    It would really help enforce a consistent naming convention.
    Not sure how fast help can arrive from MS?

  3. Open Source the sample Blueprints

    Is the blueprint available on GitHub at all?

    I have taken the blueprint as a foundation for my "data centre in a box" template but, I have no way of seeing if there have been any changes to the MS provided one and if there are, what changes were made.

    Cheers
