  1. 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.

  3. App Service Environment End-to-End Encryption

    Hi - Could you add a feature which enables the end-to-end encryption of traffic within an App Service whereby communication between the frontend and worker roles can be secured using customer controlled TLS certificates.

  4. Plz add a feature to be able to turn off FTP user credentials option

    Adding on behalf of a customer. There are security concerns about" why is the User Credentials are set at a global level across all subscriptions? This would be classed as a security issue for some companies."
    Would it be possible to add a feature that would allow customer to simply turn off that feature within the App Service blade.

  5. Web App Open Ports 4024 and 4022

    Currently, our web apps have the remote debugging option off however based on security scans we still see TCP port 4022 and 4024 still open.
    In discussion with Microsoft Support there is no resolution at this time to remove the TCP port 4022 and 4024 being open to the Web Apps because it is a multi-tenant site they do not have the options to do so. However, I did look at the firewall configuration and unfortunately it only allows IP based rules and not port specific rules.

    Here is the link that the the support engineer provided which was the…

  6. Add better logging for Isolated App Service Environment when Deployments Fail

    It can be extremely frustrating when an isolated ASE fails to deploy if the only error log says "The resource provision operation did not complete within the allowed timeout period. "

    There are a number of forum threads, blogs, etc. that discuss what to possibly check when this error is thrown.

    I think it could just do better. If there are requirements to communicate with some management IP during creation and it can't then that should be in the error log.

  8. Metrics for Linux Docker Containers - Function APPS

    We are currently running several Linux Docker Containers in a function app and are surprised that most metrics are not available.

    The system reports on data in/out and http 5xx errors but that is all that it there. Information such as processed HTTP requests, response time, logs streams, processes and container load (cpu/memory/io is only available for the whole app service and not for the container).

    Docker function apps are heavy priced already and it doesn't help that most functionality in the portal is not available in this use case.

  9. Autoscale settings for service plan tier (scale up) in addition to (scale out)

    I'd like to be able to configure auto-scale on the pricing tiers in addition to scaling out. For example, during the overnight ours, I don't need a app service plan of p2v2, but during the day, I do normally need 2 sometimes 3 p2v2 instances. I'd like to be able to say during the hours of X - Y, make the app service plan p1v2, and A - B be p2v2. I don't know that a more complex situation like CPU usage is necessary, but maybe others would want it, but in general it would be nice to automate that…

  11. ASE creation validation UI assumptions to be reviewed

    In current implementation ASE basic tab validation assumes that VNET and ASE should be deployed in different RG's. When RBAC in organisation is arranged on RG level and DevOps team is expected to deploy everything in one RG, ASE UI gives false-positive privilege validation errors (as it assumes privileges on subscription level), while you are actually able deploy using download/deploy the template. Quite confusing to see Create button disabled in this case. Hopefully this scenario could be taken into account in the future implementations. (support case 119031524002148 suggested to post it here).

  12. Allow auto-shutdown of Web Apps in DevTest Labs

    Allow Web Apps running on App Service to be auto-shutdown when running in a DevTest Lab.

    DevTest Labs currently allows auto-shutdown for VMs. You can add PaaS services to DevTest Labs via a "Public Repository" or templates, so please extend auto-shutdown functions to these services.

  13. Allow App Service Environments to be added to existing Subnet

    App Service Environments should be able to be added to existing VNET Subnets. Having to rework subnets in VNET is kind of a pain to add a new one or delete and re-add a subnet to accommodate the ASE.

    We are going to add this back into the portal. You can do this now using templates but that isn’t as easy as just using the portal if you are making changes. There were a few issues that forced us to remove that capability from the portal but the issues are circumvented now.

  14. Enable Azure Web App's Console, Extensions, Log Stream, Process Explorer features in App Service Environment (ASE)

    Hi
    Long back in Feb 2017, an user raised an issue regarding enabling Console, Extensions, Log Stream, Process Explorer features in Azure App Service Environment (ASE) and the response from MS team was that this is a known issue and MS is working on it. But after that there was no update on this issue and it looks like that thread was not updated for a while.

    I am still facing this issue in the Web App inside my ASE. Could you please give an update when will this feature be available inside ASE? These are all handy features in…

  15. Read Only Locks - Too restrictive to view Application Logs

    Read only locks are too restrictive across App Services.

    We want to be able to still view Application Service logs via Kudu (without any of the editing functionality) especially when there is an issue with the app service. This requires no editing of the functionality and is not a management operation.

    Is this something that can be considered looking into?

    Hostname not eligible for App Service Managed Certificates creation. Ensure that your domain www.our-website.com has an active CNAME record which is set to ourSite-live.azurewebsites.net.

  18. Enable Docker Content Trust on Linux ASE

    Now that Notary/Content Trust in available in ACR, it would be useful if it could also be enabled in the ASE so it could only pull signed images.

  19. Web App with File Share

    Allow a file share to be mounted on Web Apps.

    JUST ALLOW IT ALREADY

    You have an implementation. You "say" it is "slow" ... but it is much much much much better than "NO"

    I use tools like CloudberryDrive and TNTDrive to mount file shares on Windows. And you already have an implementation from 2 years ago (Jan 2017) but it was shelved because it was "too slow".

    What if we only need one or two files at a time ... then speed is NOT an issue .. but AVAILABILITY IS HUGE

  20. You do not have permission to view this directory or page

    The cause of this error is wrong URI in Azure Active Directory, and once you set up the the App Service Authentication, you do not need to add the authentication configuration in Startup.cs, instead used either one of the set up. Then to add a code to check the claims of the user authenticated from Azure Active Directory.
