Azure CDN Endpoint names should meet naming requirements.


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

  • Between 1 and 50 characters long.
  • Alphanumerics and hyphens.
  • Start and end with a letter or number.
  • CDN endpoint names must be globally unique.


Consider using names that meet CDN endpoint naming requirements. Additionally consider naming resources with a standard naming convention.


This rule does not check if CDN endpoint names are unique.
