Manage Azure App Service using WAF

Web application firewalls (WAF) help secure your web applications by inspecting inbound web traffic to block SQL injections, Cross-Site Scripting, malware uploads & application DDoS and other attacks. They also inspect the responses from the back-end web servers for Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Azure provides a WAF capability with the Application Gateway.

Application gateway allows you to have an App Service app or other multi-tenant service as a back-end pool member. In this article, you learn to configure an App Service app with Application Gateway. The first example shows you how to configure an existing application gateway to use a web app as a back-end pool member

  1. Add Application Gateway Configuration
  • Update Azure subscription and resource group detail, use Application Gateway name as DemoWAF
  • Once Application Gateway created, click  DemoWAF
  • Add listeners with below detail and save changes
  • Once changes are Saved new Listener will be added in the list
  • Create new Backend Pool and target with Azure app service
  • Once backend pool complete, associate rules with backend pool
  • After done with rules we can find associated rules in backend pool
  • Now Azure App Service can be manage by Azure WAF.

I hope this article will help you to configure the DevOps!
