Application Gateways should meet naming requirements.


When naming Azure resources, resource names must meet service requirements. The requirements for Application Gateway names are:

  • Between 1 and 80 characters long.
  • Alphanumerics, underscores, periods and hyphens.
  • Start with alphanumeric.
  • End with alphanumeric or underscore.


Consider using names that meet Application Gateway naming requirements. Additionally consider naming resources with a standard naming convention.


This rule does not check if Application Gateways names are unique.
