Azure Front Door Advanced Configurations

  • Force HTTP to HTTPS
  • Configure your custom domain name
  • Setup HTTPS by using AFD managed SSL

Restricts only AFD to your backend

From my NB, I can access the client directly cause I have allowed my source IP on the client’s FW.

Force HTTP to HTTPS

When accessing the URL using HTTP, it will show Not Secure as below.

  1. Configure a rule for HTTPS

Configure your custom domain name

To achieve, you need to have self owned domain name. I have mine hosted on AWS Route53 and already setup a CNAME record pointing to AFD’s FQDN, which is ystatit.azurefd.net, as below.

Setup HTTPS by using AFD managed SSL

For this part, it is quite easy to setup. All you have to do is enable HTTPS for you own domain name, select TLS version and choose Certificate management type, as shown below.
