  • Fixed a known issue causing Terraform to show an error while trying to manage configuration of a new deployment (ID-891)

    NGINXaaS for Azure now requires users to take an explicit action to create a default NGINX configuration with a deployment. We have added the “Apply default NGINX configuration” field in the updated deployment creation workflow in the Azure portal. For other client tools like Terraform, NGINXaaS for Azure now requires users to explicitly create an NGINX configuration.

  • NGINXaaS for Azure now supports configuring NGINX Plus as a mail proxy server

    Enhance your email service’s efficiency by utilizing NGINX Plus as a mail proxy for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP protocols, streamlining configuration for mail servers and external services.

    Please note that NGINXaaS does not support outbound connections on port 25, and an alternative port should be used for SMTP. Additionally, ensure network connectivity from the NGINXaaS deployment to both the mail server and authentication server to support proper mail authentication.

    For a complete list of allowed directives, see the Configuration Directives List.
