Is configuration of Endpoint Manager a pre-requisite to using Azure Front Door Standard/Premium (Preview) ?

Hello Experts,

I'm trying to confirm what exactly the "base fees" https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/frontdoor/ are covering. IS it the cost of the resources used by the Endpoint Manager / Private Endpoint?

I found both these documents:
What is Azure Front Door Standard/Premium (Preview) Endpoint Manager?
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/frontdoor/standard-premium/concept-endpoint-manager

and

How do I lock down the access to my backend to only Azure Front Door?
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/frontdoor/front-door-faq#how-do-i-lock-down-the-access-to-my-backend-to-only-azure-front-door-

Does the "base fees" of Premium SKU price cover the cost of all the resources needed for the Endpoint Manager (minus the cost of WAF and Private Link) ?

Thank you

Hello @PeterThurwachterMINDTREELIMITED-2688, Thank you for reaching out.
Azure Front Door Standard/Premium (Preview) Endpoint Manager is feature which provides an overview of endpoints you've configured for your Azure Front Door. An endpoint is a logical grouping of a domains and their associated configurations. It is already enabled when you deploy a Azure Front Door Standard/Premium SKU and I do not think you can disable it. Can you please elaborate more on this question?

For Azure Front Door Standard/Premium SKU the best way to lock down your application to accept traffic only from your specific Front Door instance is to publish your application via Private Endpoint. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/frontdoor/standard-premium/faq#how-do-i-lock-down-the-access-to-my-backend-to-only-azure-front-door)

Premium SKU (includes WAF and Private Link at no additional cost). Could you please elaborate more on resources needed for the Endpoint Manager?

Thank you!
