Azure Frontdoor Geo match condition

Hi All,

i am trying to write a rules engine configuration that forward requests to different backends based on the Geo match.
what i want is to basically, forward requests coming from Australia to Australia, Europe to the UK and the rest of the world to westus2.
the problem is the geo matching in Frontdoor is based on countries not regions (like Azure Traffic Manager) so i will need to match per country which is fine however the portal only allows me to select a max of 10 countries per rule so with around 195 countries in the world i will end up writing lots of rules.
can i override this limitation? or can i use regions in Azure Frontdoor?

thanks

Hello @MosesAlexander-5202 ,

Apologies for the delay in my response as it took some time to get in touch with the Product Group team.

I checked regarding your query with the Azure Front Door Product Group team and they mentioned that Azure Front Door has a limit of 10 match conditions per rule and currently there is no workaround available to override this. But they will talk to portal team to see if the limit can be increased. They also mentioned that adding 195 conditions per rule might be a challenge but updating list using region might be a good thing, however they do not have any immediate plan to support this.
