This tutorial demonstrates how to connect an Elastigroup to the Backend Pools of Azure’s Application Gateway, the go-to option for application-level load balancing on Azure.


  • At least 1 Azure Application Gateway up and running.


Step 1: Open the Elastigroup Creation Wizard

Click Elastigroups in the sidebar, then click Create to enter the Elastigroup Creation Wizard.

Step 2: Select the Backend Pools

Under the Compute tab open the Load Balancers section and select the desired Backend Pools. The Elastigroup can be assigned to multiple Backend Pools.

Step 3: Create the Elastigroup

Complete the Elastigroup Creation Wizard and create the Elastigroup.

 Note: To avoid data transfer costs, collocate the Elastigroup in the same Region as the Application Gateway.
