How do I set a public static IP address to a storage account?

ph flag

I have an Azure storage account with a blob endpoint of: '', (and queues etc.). I want to choose a static IP Address, because some of my more zealous customers want to only allocate a known set of IP addresses through their firewall. I have already provided them with the list of Azure IP ranges for my Azure region, but they don't want to allocate such broad ranges.

1 Azure portal | Add new resource "Public IP Address", allows me to add a public static IP address for a virtual network gateway (VNG?). Can I re-route all traffic through a VNG to the approriate storage endpoints?

2: Azure API management could be configured with a public static IP, then adding a 'pass through' route.

Each client's app.config would need "AzureWebJobsStorage" updated to send requests through an API Management route for each endpoint type use the 'explicit storage endpoint connection string

3: Alternative to APIm: dotnet YARP as a reverse proxy hosted on an Azure WebApp and manage re-routing that way.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
