Retirement: Support for Application Gateway Web Application Firewall v2 Configuration is ending

Published date: March 15, 2024

On 15 March 2027, the Application Gateway WAF v2 Configuration will be retired. To continue using this service, switch to the Application Gateway WAF v2 Policy before the retirement date. The WAF Policy offers the same features as the Configuration, plus additional security enhancements and new features at no extra cost. You can migrate seamlessly from WAF Configuration to WAF Policy without any downtime. We recommend that you make the transition before the retirement date to take advantage of the advanced features, higher scale, better performance, and the ability to share the same WAF policy across multiple gateways, listeners, and URL paths. 
Required action
