Published date: March 27, 2024

On 31 March 2027, Azure Front Door (classic) will be retired for the public cloud, and you’ll need to migrate to Front Door Standard or Premium by that date.

Beginning 1 April 2025, you’ll no longer be able to create new Front Door (classic) resources via the Azure portal, Terraform, or any command line tools. However, you can continue to make modifications to existing resources until Front Door (classic) is fully retired.

Azure Front Door Standard and Premium combine the capabilities of static and dynamic content delivery with turnkey security, enhanced DevOps experiences, simplified pricing, and better Azure integrations. Learn more about what’s included with Front Door Standard and Premium and review the pricing of each tier.

To avoid potential disruptions in service, migrate to Azure Front Door Standard or Premium by 31 March 2027. Additionally, we recommend that you start creating new resources on Front Door Standard or Premium, and that you use Standard or Premium API and command line tools in your DevOps workflow.
