    To disable Azure Front Door for a specific site or set of sites, you will need to follow these steps:

    1. Log in to the Azure portal (https://portal.azure.com).
    2. In the left-hand menu, click on "All Services" and search for "Front Door".
    3. Click on the Front Door service that you want to modify.
    4. In the Front Door overview page, click on the "Rules Engine" tab.
    5. In the Rules Engine page, you will see a list of rules that are currently configured for your Front Door service. These rules determine how traffic is routed to the different backends (origin servers) for your site.
    6. To disable Front Door for a specific site, you will need to find the rule that corresponds to that site and edit it. To do this, click on the rule and then click the "Edit" button.
    7. In the Edit rule page, you can either disable the rule by setting the "Enabled" toggle to "Off", or you can modify the rule to only allow traffic from certain IP addresses or ranges.
    8. Once you have made your changes, click the "Save" button to apply the changes.
    9. To disable Front Door for a specific site, you will need to find the rule that corresponds to that site and edit it. To do this, click on the rule and then click the "Edit" button.
    10. In the Edit rule page, you can either disable the rule by setting the "Enabled" toggle to "Off", or you can modify the rule to only allow traffic from certain IP addresses or ranges.

    Once you have made your changes, click the "Save" button to apply the changes

    It's important to note that disabling Azure Front Door will not block traffic to the site, but rather it will allow traffic to bypass Front Door and go directly to the origin server. This means that any traffic management, caching, or acceleration features provided by Front Door will not be applied to the site.
