Associate NSGs or clean up#

Operational Excellence · Network Security Group · Azure.NSG.Associated

Network Security Groups (NSGs) should be associated to a subnet or network interface.

Description#

NSGs basic stateful firewalls that are deployed as separate resources. Each NSG can be associated to one or more network interfaces or subnets. NSGs that are not associated with a network interface or subnet perform no purpose.

Recommendation#

Consider cleaning up NSGs that are not required to reduce technical debt. Also consider using Resource Groups to help manage the lifecycle of related resources together.
