Azure AD integration at Azure application gateway RRS feed

  • Question

  • Deat Team,

    Is there a way to integrate Azure WAF with Azure AD.

    Instead of integrating Azure AD with back end web server i would like to integrate Azure AD at application gateway level.

    This way user can only reach the website when they first get authenticated.

    It is very easy to setup in AWS load balancer ,want to do same thing in Azure

  • Hello Afzal , 

    At this point Azure WAF dos not have the functionality of being used as a authentication proxy . There is an ongoing Azure uservoice feedback item and work is going on the same . I would suggest you to upvote the same. https://feedback.azure.com/forums/217313-networking/suggestions/19473664-authentication-support-for-application-gateway . 

    Hope this clarifies your query. At this point we do not have a timeline but the product managers are active on the uservoice feedback side and keep checking and updating the details periodically. I would suggest you to join in the discussion by filling the form at https://aka.ms/ApplicationGatewayCohort .
