Add or Delete Endpoints

Updated: March 13, 2014

Windows Azure Traffic Manager

  1. On the Traffic Manager pane in the Management Portal, locate the Traffic Manager profile that contains the endpoint settings that you want to modify, and then click the arrow to the right of the profile name. This will open the settings page for the profile.

  2. At the top of the page, click Endpoints to view the endpoints that are already part of your configuration.

  3. At the bottom of the page, click Add to access the Add Service Endpoints page. By default, the page lists the cloud services under Service Endpoints.

  4. For cloud services, select the cloud services in the list to enable them as endpoints for this profile. Clearing the cloud service name removes it from the list of endpoints.

  5. For web sites, click the Service Type dropdown, and then select Web Site.

  6. Select the web sites in the list to add them as endpoints for this profile. Clearing the web site name removes it from the list of endpoints. Note that you can only select a single web site per Azure datacenter (also known as a region). If you select a web site in a datacenter that hosts multiple web sites, when you select the first web site, the others in the same datacenter become unavailable for selection. Also note that only Standard web sites are listed.

  7. After you select the endpoints for this profile, click the checkmark on the lower right to save your changes.

Note that Azure Web Sites already provides failover and round-robin load balancing functionality for web sites within a datacenter, regardless of the web site mode. Traffic Manager allows you to specify failover and round-robin load balancing for web sites in different datacenters.

WarningWarning
If you are using the Failover load balancing method, after you add or remove an endpoint, be sure to adjust the Failover Priority List on the Configuration page to reflect the failover order you want for your configuration. For more information, see Configure Failover Load Balancing.

  1. On the Traffic Manager pane in the Management Portal, locate the Traffic Manager profile that contains the endpoint settings that you want to modify, and then click the arrow to the right of the profile name. This will open the settings page for the profile.

  2. At the top of the page, click Endpoints to view the endpoints that are already part of your configuration.

  3. On the Endpoints page, click the name of the endpoint that you want to delete from the profile.

  4. At the bottom of the page, click Delete.
