General availability: Application security groups support for private endpoints

Published date: January 24, 2023

Private endpoint support for application security groups (ASGs) is now generally available. This feature enhancement will allow you to add granular controls on top of existing network security group (NSG) rules by attaching an ASG to the private endpoint network interface. This will increase segregation within your subnets without losing security rules. In order to leverage this feature, you will need to set a specific subnet level property, called PrivateEndpointNetworkPolicies, to enabled on the subnet containing private endpoint resources.

At this time, Private Link application security group support is available in most public regions.
