  1. If there is a .NET core startup issue, it would be good if Azure automagically turned on stdout logging

    It's not intuitive to enable stdout logging on .NET core, especially knowing where it's going to put the log output.

    Azure seems to already be capable of detecting a .NET core startup error, if would be good if it automatically changed the web.config for stdout logging and showed some error output on the 'Diagnose and solve problems' screen.

    • 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.

      • Add "Allow access to Azure services" in Azure App Service IP restrictions

        Re this thread

        https://www.yammer.com/azureadvisors/#/Threads/show?threadId=945875058

        I'd used PowerShell to manually add IP restrictions a couple of weeks ago. Right away my App Insights availability tests started failing so I narrowed the test location down to Dublin IE and allowed those IP/Subnets.

        Add an option similar to SQL Server "Allow access to Azure services" That white lists Azure App insights availability tests for selected regions.

        Thanks

        Luke

          There was some confusion about this feature due to the documentation for it and UX originally released had a bug.

          The IP Restrictions feature works as an ALLOW list, rather than a DENY list as originally stated.

          The ask here is still valid, there are other services in azure (like SQL) that have UI to explicitly allow other azure services to reach the database. While this is convenient for development scenarios, it’s not a good idea for securing the resource.

          We’ll keep an eye on this request and see if it gathers more up-votes.

        • Give Linux web apps same deployment options as Windows based apps

          Linux based web apps have 3 deployment options (GitHub, BitBucket, Local Git repo) whereas Windows based apps have 7 deployment options (including the "External Repository" which is what I was looking for).

          This request is to bring the options for Linux based apps up to speed, and perhaps until then, provide documentation and/or UI verbiage as to why there are differences. I spent an hour or two trying to hook up GitLab as a deployment option (including trying to use the Azure CLI) in vein.

          BTW the CLI gives a cryptic error message when trying to add an external repository.…

          • Associating Hybrid Connections to Azure App Services cannot be automated

            There is no way to associate a Hybrid Connection to an Azure App Service via ARM Template or PowerShell.

            This is a significant gap since we cannot automate this at all when that is the driving factor for DevOps and PaaS services.

            • in ASE disable TLS 1.1

              Allow for the disablement of TLS 1.1 protocols from ASE in a similar method as TLS 1.0. This would help secure systems further for ISVs building new API Apps and help with additional security concerns and compliance for PCI and others.

              Allowing for the same method but adding an additional JSON in cluster settings to actually trigger the TLS 1.1 disablement would be good.

              "clusterSettings": [
              {
              "name": "DisableTls1.0",
              "value": "1"
              },
              {
              "name": "DisableTls1.1",
              "value": "1"
              }
              ],

              • FTP accounts tied to subscription, not user. Not enough auditing

                In the current model, FTP credentials are tied to a user's azure login. Thus, we have no visibility into credentials that are set, as we cannot see other people's FTP credentials they've set. Furthermore, when an FTP account is created or deleted, nothing is logged. This makes it difficult to audit who has access. With the logins being tied to the user, when the user leaves, there is no way for us to reclaim that username unless they delete their ftp credentials first. This doesn't always work, as a user may depart abruptly or not on good terms. Although the…

                • Hybrid Connection Manager Support for Linux

                  We are an ISV leveraging Azure PaaS to provide an iPaaS service to customers. We have a requirement to connect to on premise servers to access line-of-business apps. Currently, we leverage Azure’s Hybrid Connection Manager --- but are limited to Windows servers only. Our customers have both Windows, Linux and mixed environments. This considerably limits our market.

                  Can we expect Linux support? If so, when? Any suggested work arounds?

                  Thank you for your consideration.
