Action required: Upgrade from Basic to Standard SKU public IP addresses in Azure by 30 September 2025

joon 21 Reputation points

You're receiving this notice because you've used Basic SKU public IP addresses within the last 30 days.

On 30 September 2025, Basic SKU public IP addresses will be retired in Azure. You can continue to use your existing Basic SKU public IP addresses until then, however, you'll no longer be able to create new ones after 31 March 2025.

Standard SKU public IP addresses offer significant improvements, including:

Access to a variety of other Azure products, including Standard Load Balancer, Azure Firewall, and NAT Gateway.Security by default—closed to inbound flows unless allowed by a network security group.Zone-redundant and zonal front ends for inbound and outbound traffic.

If you have any Basic SKU public IP addresses deployed in Azure Cloud Services (extended support), those deployments will not be affected by this retirement and you don't need to take any action for them.


I received an email with this information.

If it is not changed by 25 years, will the IP become unusable?

Or will the basic sku's IP no longer be supported by azure?

이런내용의 안내메일을 받았습니다.

25년까지 변경하지 않을시에 해당 IP는 사용할 수 없게 되는것입니까?

아니면 basic sku의 IP의 azure에서의 지원을 더이상 받게 될수 없는것인가요?

    Hi @joon ,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & I hope you are doing well.
    I understand that you would like to know more about the Basic IP SKU retirement timeline.

    This is to notify that users will not be able to use basic SKU IP addresses after 30 September 2025.
    And yes, if not upgraded to Standard SKU, these IP Addresses will become unusable and will no longer be supported.

    You can continue to use your existing Basic IP address till the above date.
    However, you will not be able to create new basic IP addresses after 31 March 2025

    You can upgrade your existing basic IP address to standard by following : Upgrade a public IP (if you do not want the IP to change)

    I hope this clarifies, please let us know if you require more details on this.
