We have old apps that are pointed at the Site url for a classic service. Azure is discontinuing support. The problem is that those apps are hardcoded to the site url, so once that is gone they can no longer reach a service. Can we use DNS to redirect the site url endpoint elsewhere when we update this service?

    Hello @Matthew Foreman Thanks for reaching out in the Microsoft Q&A!

    To redirect a site URL from a discontinued Classic Service, Azure DNS is a viable solution. Configure a CNAME record in the Azure DNS zone, mapping the old URL to the new destination. Optionally, update applications to directly point to the new service URL. This setup offers a seamless transition for users. For further guidance, refer to Azure DNS overview and updating DNS records documentation.
