Hello everyone! I have some great news to share with you today. Microsoft Azure has just announced the support for static IP configurations of private endpoints. This means that you can now assign a fixed IP address to your private endpoints, and avoid any issues with dynamic IP changes. This is a huge improvement for scenarios where you need to whitelist specific IP addresses for security or compliance reasons. You can also use static IP configurations to simplify your network management and troubleshooting.
To use this feature, you need to enable it on your private endpoint resource during creation or update. You can do this using the Azure portal, PowerShell, CLI, or ARM templates. Once enabled, you can specify the IP address that you want to assign to your private endpoint, as long as it is within the range of the subnet that hosts the private endpoint. You can also change the IP address later if needed.
Static IP configurations of private endpoints are currently available in preview for all Azure regions. You can start using them today and provide your feedback to the Azure team. I hope you are as excited as I am about this new feature. It will make your private connectivity more reliable and secure. Happy networking!
