  1. Enable IKEV2 protocol support for Azure Web App

    Currently Azure Web App supports SSTP protocol. There is an option for IKEV2 but when it is checked the web app breaks.

    Please add support for IKEV2 protocol as this is a requirement for many.

    • Support Custom Web Fonts in Azure App Services

      Currently custom (web) fonts are not supported, mentioned in kudu's Github Wiki.

      Quote:
      PDF generation from HTML
      There are some frameworks that do not leverage User32/GDI32 extensively (wkhtmltopdf, for example) and we are working on enabling these in Basic+ the same way we enabled SQL Reporting.

      Quote:
      Unsupported frameworks
      Known issue for all PDF generators based on wkhtmltopdf or phantomjs: custom fonts are not rendered (system-installed font is used instead) because of sandbox GDI API limitations that present even in VM-based Azure Apps plans (Basic or higher).

      I'm trying to use wkhtmltopdf in an Azure Function, though I…

      • [linux] Enable "Deployment Options" within Web App for Containers

        Currently "Deployment Options" is only available for Web App for Windows/Linux. It would be nice if this was enabled for Web App for Containers. I was successfully using Web App for Linux with this option linked to BitBucket and it was working well, however, I needed a couple of PHP extensions added and headers enabled on Apache so spun up a Web App for Containers; Doing so I lost the simple ability to deploy from BitBucket.

        • Add comment field to IP Restrictions list

          Would be helpful to be able to associate a comment or description with each IP address/range similar to the firewall UX in Azure SQL DB.

          • Add some container orchestration features to App Service to provide high density

            Azure App Service is the Easy Button for app deployment and hosting, whereas Service Fabric and containers add significant complexity. However, Service Fabric and containers scale much more efficiently. It would be amazing if you could add some basic container orchestration features in a way that would make App Service the Easy Button for container-based deployments, including high density. I realize this is a challenging request, but like I said, it would be amazing!

            Thanks!
            Vince

            • Switch Git Branches in Deployment Options

              I would like the ability to switch git branches in the deployment options under an app service without unlinking and relinking the webapp with a git repo.

              • App Service - Allow Named Pipe Activation to be enabled

                We would like to use named pipes to communicate between services on the same app service, but this doesn't seem to be possible since named pipe activation isn't enabled in .Net on the app service.

                      • Document the clock syncronization between App Service

                        I couldn't find anywhere about the clock synchronization between different instances of an App Service and also between App Service and other Azure services (e.g. Azure Storage, Service Bus etc.)

                        What we need to know is if there is any grantee that if we take DateTime.UtcNow on two instances of App Service (website), to which degree they will be comparable.

                        Also to which degree the clocks of App Service (website) match with other Azure infrastructure. As currently I think there is miss-match in seconds. Take a look at following example of what we are currently seeing in our system on…

                          • Access-Control-Allow-Credentials not set in credentialed CORS request

                            Not sure if this is a bug or a feature request. This is affecting me when using Azure Functions, but I beleive this has to do with the CORS implementation in Web Apps.

                            Basically, the Access-Control-Allow-Credentials header is not being set in response to credentialed requests.
                            https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Access-Control-Allow-Credentials

                            Someone else posted this issue in the azure functions github, but @lindydonna said this was to do with Web Apps. Original github issue is here:
                            https://github.com/Azure/azure-webjobs-sdk-script/issues/620

                            The problem is also documented on the official MS developer blog here:
                            https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/benjaminperkins/2017/04/12/azure-functions-access-control-allow-credentials-with-cors/

                            • App services should show the max supported version of ASP.NET core

                              If you deploy an app with a version of .NET Core that isn't deployed on Azure yet, you get horrible to debug errors that you have to enable stdout logging on to get to the bottom of.

                              (Ultimatly editing csproj with PublishWithAspNetCoreTargetManifest set to false)

                              Confusing and time consuming. It would be great if Azure showed you some where on the app, a max supported version of .NET core and some kind of publishing warning if you try to push something higher.

                                    • Allow Azure App Service IP Restriction configuration by PowerShell Script

                                      At the moment an Azure App service has the ability to white list IP addresses through the Networking > IP Restriction blade. It would be useful if this could be configured through PowerShell.

                                      • Document healthcheck URL requirement for custom containers

                                        With Web App for Containers, it seems Azure uses a special URL "/robots933456.txt" to check when the container has started, and expects a valid HTTP response (404 is fine). This requirement for custom containers should be mentioned in the documentation! (and preferably, it should be configurable)

                                        • Improve Python offerings and eliminate reoccurring issues on Python

                                          The Python offerings has so many issues and I feel it is the most neglected Language on Azure. I have encountered really silly issues on Python extensions which can increase the development time on such apps thus decreasing productivity. Please improve on the same as this is one of the most important languages and Azure limits the way it can be used which can cause many potential people moving away from Azure due to its limitations.

                                            Thank you for the feedback! Adding and increasing support for Python on App Service is definitely something that we’re actively working toward, although there is no specific ETA.

                                            In the meantime, with our Web App for Containers offering, you’re free to use whatever stack you prefer.
