I've set up an Azure Application Gateway with Azure Kubernetes Service using the Azure Application Gateway Ingress Controller (AGIC) and confirmed that it's working correctly using the sample guestbook app.
I then used almost the exact configuration to deploy a Golang app that uses the gRPC-gateway to the same AKS cluster.
The default liveness and readiness health checks fail so I've configured custom exec based (not fit for prod) so that they pass the checks and are added to the backend pool.
The gateway (REST) pod is healthy however the pod that uses gRPC is still unhealthy and has the following error message.
Cannot connect to server. Check whether any NSG/UDR/Firewall is blocking access to server. Check if application is running on correct port.
I'm guessing that the gateway doesn't support gRPC/binary communication but I'm not positive and cannot find anything in the documentation.

I've submitted a help ticket to Microsoft however I'm still waiting for a reply. Has anyone else tried to host gRPC apps using the Application Gateway?
