  1. Provide acceptable scale out time for instances in ASE Isolated instance types

    Scaling is a core feature of App Services. We used ASE for the additional features however it means we are stuck with 40 mins scale out time to add an instance. Per support this is by design, however this is not documented anywhere in public domain.
    Scaling is supposed to help us get customers on to Azure, if it takes 40 mins to add an instance, it will not meet the business needs, we abandoned ASE only due to this issue. Kindly document current scale out time in public documentation so that user know this before hand.
    Ultimate goal should…

    Thanks for the feedback!

    You’re right that ASE scaling operations take longer than the common plans on multi-tenant App Service. We are looking at ways to decrease the time so it will on par with multi-tenant but this means a new infrastructure is needed with managing a pool or pre-assigned VMs to the ASEs.

    This is documented here, though without a time frame mentioned as it depends on a numbers of factors: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/environment/using-an-ase#how-scale-works.

    We will update when there is more information here.

    Thanks,

  2. Automatically rebind SSL Certs that have Auto-Renew

    Right now there is a way to purchase and Auto-Renew SSL-Certs for Web Apps. Unfortunately, the Auto-Renew does NOT also bind the new cert to the WebApps where the cert it is replacing is currently bound to.

    This makes Auto-Renew more or less useless, as one still has to manually bind the new cert once it becomes available.

    A cert with Auto-Renew should automatically bind to all WebApps where the cert it replaces is used.

    Hi Thomas,

    Some feedback from our team:

    We do not update the SSL binding on rare cases, and we do have the code working just that it happens on a different task. This is definitely a bug we will be fixing as soon as we can. Most likely will be dealt with in June.

    Thanks,
    Oded

  3. Support Availability Zones for App Service Environment

    With Azure SQL and Storage having zone redundant capabilities and Application Gateway in preview, App Service Environment is soon to be the only thing keeping us from fully PaaS, zone redundant web applications.

  4. Make WEBSITE_ADD_SITENAME_BINDINGS_IN_APPHOST_CONFIG to 1 by default or add warning

    We have been hit by hard restarts on web apps because we have not set the WEBSITEADDSITENAMEBINDINGSINAPPHOSTCONFIG to 1. It would be a more sane default to have it set to 1 by default, and then turned off by users that need WCF support OR have some sort of warning / checkbox or increased visbility in the portal.

    The simultaneous restart of all (in our case) 10 servers in a datasenter has caused outage of our services, and we would imagine others experience the same issue. I doubt many assume that all servers in…

  6. PowerShell and CLI support for the management of App Service Environments

    Azure PowerShell and Azure CLI commands to support the management of an App Service Environments (at least v2). Hopefully this could include the ability to get management IP information, do scaling, and if it is an ILB ASE update the ILB Certificate.

  7. Application Security Groups (ASG) support for App Service Environments (ASE)

    As stated in the comments section of this page https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/applicationsecuritygroups/
    "It's on the roadmap, all services integrated with VNet like ASE and SQL MI will be part of ASGs groups, as of today the scope doesn't cover subnets for those services, we are exploring options in the near future."

  8. Enable 'Resource Health' Feature for Isolated App Service Plans

    Enable 'Resource Health" feature for Isolated App Service Plans.

    Currently, it shows error message "incorrect health status - not supported"

    "
    Resource health status is not available for Free, Shared or Isolated App Service plan. To enable health status, consider upgrading to a Basic, Standard, or Premium App Service plan.
    Report incorrect health status "

    Instead, users of the most expensive plan, Isolated, in an ASE, are encouraged to change their plan?

    Please add the feature or adjust the message. Thank you.

  9. Enable application logging in ILB ASE

    Currently there is no way to access our applications trace logs in an ILB ASE environment. I understand the Log Stream button is greyed out in the portal, but even using Kudu, FTP, blob, or streaming in VS, none of these are working in ILB ASE, and support tells us this is a known issue. This is a huge downside for us because we depend on our customized application log messages for troubleshooting.

  10. Offer higher memory / RAM app service plans

    I can see this has been raised before but we would really like to see plan options with higher memory. We could host about twice as many applications on the same plan if memory was increased to something like 32gb. Our apps aren't CPU intensive but need more memory, nor any more up.

    Thanks!

  11. Enable AAD Authentication for Multi-container Apps

    A common (if not best) practice is to compose applications of multiple containers for the sake of separation of concerns. However, Azure doesn't support authentication with Azure Active Directory for multi-container apps. Until this is in place, we can't deploy our applications to Azure in a clean way.

  12. Support Healthcheck for Docker on App Service

    We just learned the hard way that HEALTHCHECK declarations in Docker containers stop working if the container is running in App Service, because App Service for some reason seems to alter the behavior of our containers to do some "internal" healtchecks.

    I believe that this goes very much against the spirit of containerized applications. I have to trust that my container behaves the same no matter who runs it.

  13. Enable users to isolate an App Service Plan instance in order to perform offline debug

    It’s difficult to balance root causing live fails with keeping a production application running. This feature request attempts to address this by asking for a way to isolate an ASP instance in a running application.

    By isolating a misbehaving instance you can prevent it from affecting the behavior of the application overall. It can be studied for root cause without app devs or support being pressured to do this live on a production app. When debug is complete it could be terminated.

    Alerting and monitoring application is very much essential for running any application on production basis. Recently we have come-across situation where our ASE got suspended because it was unhealthy, upon checking with Microsoft support they have said currently there is no alert rule for Unhealthy ASE at the moment.

    And also, existing alerts are unable to send data to the backend systems, hence unable to generate any alerts as well.

  15. Azure App Service Environment ILB - Support for Internal Certificate Authorities

    Currently the documentation for Azure App Service Environment with ILB claims it supports internal certificate authorities.

    Per - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/environment/create-ilb-ase#post-ilb-ase-creation-validation

    As part of the documentation it is recommended that a user bundles their server auth certificate with the full certificate chain - thus producing a PFX file or base64 encoding it and uploading through powershell.

    However when testing with OpenSSL or on an iOS device, the first request never sees the full certificate chain and fails with "invalid server certificate". It is on a subsequent request the full chain is delivered - leaving users to hit refresh once in their browser…

  18. Update Azure Functions sandbox to include Visual Fox Pro OLE DB provider

    The issue simply is that the Visual Fox Pro OLE DB driver is not installed on function machines.

    The driver is available from Microsoft here - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14839.

    It should be as simple as to copy the vfpoledb.dll file into the D:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\System\Ole DB\ directory along with the other OLE DB drivers that are currently included. I have tried to do this myself through the Kudu console but don't have premissions of course.
