Do Apache Spark Pools have a Service Tag?

Our company is rolling out more restrictive network security groups and I wanted to see if we could have our Apache Spark Pools' traffic be allowed via a service tag. When I tried to trace the IP address of the pools, the IPs varied widely so a static IP range would have to be very permissive.

We already have rules around the DataFactory service tag, but those IP ranges do not overlap at all with what I'm seeing the Apache Spark pools run as.

    @Andrew Chung - Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    According to the official documentation: Available service tags, Azure Synapse Analytics Apache Spark pools do not have a service tag. The IP addresses of the Spark pools are not static and can vary widely, as you have observed. Therefore, it is not possible to create a network security group rule that allows traffic from a specific IP address range.

    However, you can use the Azure Synapse Analytics workspace's managed private endpoint feature to secure your Spark pools. With managed private endpoints, you can create a private endpoint for your Spark pool that is accessible only from your virtual network. This way, you can restrict access to your Spark pool to only the resources in your virtual network.

    For more details, refer to Synapse Managed private endpoints.
