@Varghese Cherian: From the team: "For .NET back compatibility, there are 4 combinations for client-side SignalR applications to work with Azure SignalR Service (ASRS), which is ASP.NET core based. .NET web app + .NET SignalR SDK, requires a new version of .NET SDK to work with ASRS. The SDK is being worked right now with a high priority; .NET web app + .NET core SignalR SDK, as long as the SignalR related code can be separated from .NET based web app, this works right now; .NET core web app + .NET SignalR SDK, this won't be supported in near future; .NET core web app + .NET core SignalR SDK, this is recommended and is supported in production. For any customer that cannot migrate the web app to .NET core, the immediate solution is to separate the SignalR related logic and implement in .NET core, using .NET core SignalR SDK. If the user wants to wait a while, then there will be the new version of .NET SignalR SDK, to make it happen, but not 100% of APIs will be covered."
@alexmarshall132: From the team: "Yes, the use case scenario doesn't have to be customer-facing. The Azure SignalR Service implements REST APIs, so any backend service/application can post real-time messages to the service, then the service sends to receiving connections, either web browsers, or a backend ASP.NET apps. The SignalR client-side SDK currently provides JS (mainly for web) and C# (for .NET app). For other services or other languages, REST API or Azure Function binding can be used."
