    Azure DDoS Protection is a separate service offered by Azure. Azure WAF for Azure Front Door does have additional DDoS Protection capabilities, primarily using rate limits to only allow a specified amount of requests to your backend application. You can find an example Here.

    Usually DDos is Layer/Layer 4 protection. You can write a custom rule to block the requests if it more than 20 requests in a minute time or similar rules. Check few examples here --
