1.5.132.0

Release status

May 25, 2017: Released for download

New features and improvements

Improved control over connectors' outbound connection limits.

1.5.36.0

Release status

April 15, 2017: Released for download

New features and improvements

  • Simplified onboarding and management with fewer required ports. Application Proxy now requires opening only two standard outbound ports: 443 and 80. Application Proxy continues to use only outbound connections, so you still don't need any components in a DMZ. For details, see our configuration documentation.
  • If supported by your external proxy or firewall, you can now open your network by DNS instead of IP range. Application Proxy services require connections to *.msappproxy.net and *.servicebus.windows.net only.

Earlier versions

If you're using an Application Proxy connector version earlier than 1.5.36.0, update to the latest version to ensure you have the latest fully supported features.
