tldr: Mesh refresh coming soon - billing for Mesh applications will be turned on starting 5/20, support for WinServer 2019 containers is live, and the integration with Managed Identities will ship with the release.
During this month, we are making updates to the Service Fabric Mesh service in the form of a refresh release, which includes:
Support for Windows Server 2019 / 1809 based containers (this is already live)
Integration with Managed Identities (MI)
Improvements to the monitoring and diagnostics experience for Mesh applications
Billing for Mesh resources (50% discount rate since the service is still in preview) - this will be enabled starting on 5/20
When the refresh release is made available, there will be a more detailed post along with accompanying documentation in the Mesh docs, so please watch this space for that. For those of you that did not get a chance to see the Service Fabric session at Build 2019, please check out
