Azure Firewall IDPS

Yang, Steven 106 Reputation points


How do I get an export of all the IDPS signature rules? I don't see that option in the firewall policy GUI.

Also, i'm testing out this list api: as a way to retrieve idps rule, and I believe the filter for direction is buggy. see screenshot.

1st image shows that i request rules in outbound direction. the api returns rules in all direction (2nd image)

    @Yang, Steven

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & I hope you are doing well.

    I tested this API and the fact is that the API isn't buggy, rather, the documentation is not up to date.

    The values for "Direction" are as follows:

    • Outbound - 0
    • Inbound - 1
    • Bidirectional - 2
    • Internal - 3
    • Internal/Outbound - 4

    Please use the "String" in the HTTP Request body.

    And the returned Response body would contain the integer representation.

    I shall work internally to the respective team and inform them of the documentation issue and mismatch between Request and Response parameter arguments.

    Kindly let us know if this helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
