AVM External Community Call - 21st May 2024 · Issue #859 · Azure/Azure-Verified-Modules (


Well-Architected Framework Alignment 

As customers are facing challenges of ensuring their workloads are resilient and reliable in the face of unpredictable events, AVM is adapting as one of the tools that customers can leverage to proactively improve the reliability and resiliency of their workloads inline with the Well-Architected Framework, Reliability Hub and Azure Proactive Reliance Library. 


With this in mind the AVM Team has updated the 'What does AVM mean by "WAF Aligned" Section on our site and we are actively engaging in ensuring we have module alignment across both Bicep and Terraform. So....Whats been done so far? 


Testing & Validation

Within the CI Framework for Azure Verified Modules, both Bicep & Terraform have been updated to specifically test against the reliability pillar of the well-architected framework by default (Where there is no external dependency).

For Terraform an Automated Testing Framework has been built to support WAF alignment using TFLint by our core-team and Terraform Engineering Team, the framework is continually expanding its rule-set to ensure the rules for each resource are included.

With Bicep we are leveraging the partnership from the AVM Core Team with the PS Rule to ensure we are capturing the latest tests from the latest baselines. 

Integration with our tooling to make sure our examples and defaults align with the expected outcome of a reliable resources is key to ensuring we have our modules "fully tested" meaning if any of these tests fail, we will not publish any new versions until the tests are passing.
