    Hi Suzanne,

    I am not 100% sure about this but I have googled it and found the IPv6 is supported by the Azure Front Door Service. Please refer to this article. I have not done yet but I am interested to learn the deployment.

    @Suzanne Artzberger , Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! Thanks for posting this question.

    Adding to Harshvir19's response, we have support to write IP restrictions rules which include both IPv4 and IPv6. Kindly take a look at this document for more details on this topic - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/app-service-ip-restrictions

    Unfortunately, the short answer is no: Azure App Services cannot be published over IPv6.

    Azure Front Door (AFD) does support IPv6, so you can stick an AFD in front of your app service and provide IPv6 that way.
    However, be aware that:

    • this incurs additional costs
    • this adds complexity
    • AFD has restrictions when using apex domains
    • AFD does not support DNSSEC

    Should you wish to use AFD, then you can find a writeup here:
