Microsoft Azure – Private Endpoint
A private Endpoint is basically a network interface that uses a private IP address from the azure virtual Network. By creating a Private Endpoint, you can bring various services to the azure virtual network. The services could also be azure services like (Azure storage, Azure Cosmos DB, and Azure SQL database).In this article, we will learn how to get started with Private Endpoint.
Properties of Private Endpoint:
- Name: Add a unique name to the private endpoint that will be within the resource group you create.
- Private Link source: It is a unique network identifier that is generated for all traffic that is sent to this resource you created.
- Target resource: Every private link source you create has various options to select based on preference.
- Connection Approval method: It can be set to automatically depend on role-based access permission created, or it can be manually approved.
- Connection status: It is a read-only property that specifics the state of the private endpoint, like whether it is in an active state or not.
Steps To Create a Private Endpoint:
