  1. If you develop a future in Webapp to resolve hostname in same vnet to communicate with the hostname to other VM to resolve host entry

    Using hostname by editing of the hosts file. to resolve the hostname to ip to name without DNS that will help, Because of this reason, the customer cannot move to another PASs service instead of a web app. If you implement this future like a haddop cluster that environment that will be helpful to everyone. for this reason, the support team is taking more months to give the conclusion. ask the update on the feedback.

  2. BUG: Application Pool PATH variable includes wrong path for git

    The Application Pool configuration Path variable includes the following for git, however the 64 bit version is actually installed. This means that the application cannot use Git without referencing the full path (which in my case is impractical).

    "D:\Program Files (x86)\Git\cmd"

    Path variable should refer to:

    "D:\Program Files\Git\cmd"

  3. Display Proper Message if an App Service is Down

    reference to the case# 518312

    Our websites failed because of an outage at Microsoft.
    the message displayed on web apps running in the subscription suggested that the subscription was suspended due to non-payment whereas the issue was on Microsoft side. It would have been better if the message was more specific

  5. Running df -<switch> on a Linux App Service must return the disk space used by the App Service Plan on the remote file system mount (/home)

    Running df -h / df -P on a Linux App Service container (in case of remote file system mount on /home) should return the disk space utilized on the remote file system by the App Service Plan instead of the total disk space utilized on the remote file system.

    We are trying to monitor the disk space utilized on the /home folder on a Linux App Service using AppDynamics extensions.

    AppDynamics agent runs a df -h or df -P on the app service container. This command returns the total disk space utilized on the remote file system mounted on /home…

  6. Cannot create Managed Certificate for custom hostname when TrafficManager is used

    I cannot create one of the free "Managed Certificates" for a custom hostname if that hostname points to a trafficmanager for the specified appservice.

    For the website "ZZZ.azurewebsites.net" the following error is received.

    "Failed to create App Service Managed Certificate for hostname tenantc.treasurysystems.com. Click here for more details. Error Details: Properties.CanonicalName is invalid. Current CNAME records of the hostname tenantc.***.com are YYY.trafficmanager.net,ZZZ.azurewebsites.net"

    I can however create a certificate for the trafficmanager hostname itself' but not for our own hostname added to the website.

  8. Log event that service plan can not handle all web apps instead killing biggest app in a loop without proper information

    After spending 8+ hours debugging why Linux Web app is restarting (case: 119061321000317) I would like you to fix logging for web app plan - if Service plan cannot accomodate web apps contained in a plan - please log that health check killed biggest app in a plan and not logging "unhelthy" state.

  9. Sync slot configurations

    There should be a way to synchronize slot configurations (ALL of it!) and that they are kept in sync, basically only having one set of configuration for two slots that get applied.
    Keeping things in sync "manually" is very error prone.

  10. Activate the loading of the full CA chain

    When loading a PKCS#12 certificate with full chain (root and intermediates) issued by private PKI on a webapp (on a private ASE), the intermediates CA certs are not loaded. For example, this causes a problem with the Application Gateway v2 in the backend whitelisting.

  11. App service for Linux does not support HTTP logs

    Accessing HTTP logs is crucial to debug a problem in production. For an Azure App Service on Linux this isnt possible. Please look at adding it.

  12. Multivhost support with separate DocumentRoot

    I have no idea why this common use case in the shared hosting world is not supported, but here it is :

    Within my app, I want to serve directory ./www.vhost1.com/ if the client request http://www.host1.com

    Here's a documentation of what's missing with Azure web app : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-16-04

  13. Please have a reliable way for applications to get their slot name

    Right now our application code has no way of reliably figuring out which slot it is operating within. WEBSITEHOSTNAME is invalid when performing slot swaps and APPSETTINGWEBSITESITE_NAME is the same for all slots.

    Also, we need the slot name before processing any HTTP requests, so can't really parse the hostname in an HTTP request either. This should be the responsibility of the hosting service to tell which slot is hosting the application.

  15. Adding variable support on tag field when deploying docker container on WebApp container

    I'm using docker for all the Ci pipeline, that works great.
    But for the deployment pipeline, I would like to deploy the generated docker tag name based on the BuildNumber but actually it's not supported.

    When I set tag $(Release.Artifacts.App.Build.BuildId), the logs

    I can see in the logs:

  17. Set linux docker settings to not starve system resources

    We've ran into issues where, when pushing a new updated docker image, the web app spikes to 100% resources usage. This then crashed the whole web app service. A member of the Support Team mentioned that mount.ntfs and dockerd were pegging the CPU utilization to 100%, starving other critical services.

    When running normally, our services were using a combined 10% of CPU utilization, far below our purchase limit.

    With correct permission setting, docker should not have the ability to starve out all resources. In a PaaS environment, I shouldn't have to care about the underlying VM. Please set the permissions…

  18. Read access to Deployment Center

    We have a requirement where we only allow read access to our WebApp for certain employees. The issue is that with read access the users don't have permission to see Deployment Center. The only solution currently is to grant them Contributor access to the webapp which is not something want to do from security perspective.

  19. [Linux] Allow both ${WEBAPP_STORAGE_HOME} style volume mounts and BYOS volume mounts at same time

    At present, you can choose to map your WebApp Service storage into a container using the WEBSITESENABLEAPPSERVICESTORAGE flag and by prefixing your volume mounts with ${WEBAPPSTORAGEHOME}.

    Also, you can attach your own storage, by specifying a <custom-id> as a volume mount (as per https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/appserviceteam/2018/09/24/announcing-bring-your-own-storage-to-app-service/)

    But the two don't appear to work together, and behave mutually exclusive! The custom-id is prohibited when WEBSITESENABLEAPPSERVICESTORAGE is set to true because it complains "Bind mount must start with ${WEBAPPSTORAGEHOME}".

    Use case (1): I want to use AppServices ZipDeploy or FTP to…

  20. Allow Users with Reader Access to View App Service Plan Scale Out Run History

    Allow Users with Reader Access to View App Service Plan Scale Out History. This view is possible with Contributor access. However, in Prod environments, we cannot grant Contributor access to users and users frequently request this visibility to the Scale Out Run History.
