  1. Need a read-only role or operation for Web App Kudu logs.

    Developers need to be able to access the KUDU logs for deployment and diagnostic troubleshooting without having contributor access to the web app. Can a read-only role or resource provider operation be created in order to grant this level of access?

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

  2. Connecting WebApp Service and a DBaaS (MS SQL MySQL etc)PaaS through a VNet service

    Connecting WebApp Service and a DBaaS (MS SQL MySQL etc)PaaS through a VNet service. We understand that there is a SNAT limitation when a webapp service is connected to a PaaS service that causes error in the application.
    We need private endpoint for DB PaaS services for overcoming the SNAT limitation and also to reduce the latency while connected through private IP address.

  3. remove server header from the front end servers

    Please remove the server header from the web app front end server and from API Management servers.
    It does not matter if our web app removes the header, the front end server still has the header

  4. Add support for NetworkWatcher / NSG Flow logs for App Service with Regional Vnet Integration enabled

    At the moment, if one uses an App Service with Vnet Integration there is NO way to monitor the traffic that traverses this path. For organizations with requirements to monitor ALL network traffic for integrity / Security / Audit purposes - this presents a significant challenge as ALL traffic that traverses this integration is not able to be monitored. Since the App Service presents itself as on a given subnet within the Vnet - there should be NO reason that NetworkWatcher or NSG flow logs shouldn't be usable.

  5. Unable to use subnet when VNET Integrated App is deleted

    When an app service is integrated into Regional VNET the subnet is delegated with Microsoft.Web/Server Farm and if we delete app service we are unable to remove the service association link from the subnet. subnet goes waste and needs to raise a ticket with Microsoft. Either don't allow people to delete the function app/App Service, forcing them to disconnect from VNET prior or if it gets deleted to also clean up the delegation on the subnet.

  6. Manage HTTP Headers for Azure static website

    There doesn't seem to be a clear and defined way to manage HTTP headers with an Azure static website. I know this feature is still in preview but my team and I are attempting to make this into a production ready web application.

    I think most people utilizing the static website feature will be using javascript frameworks like Reactjs or Angular. Since there isnt a web.config to manage http headers it becomes unclear on how to approach this. The headers in question are Content Security Policy, X-Content-Type-Options, and X-XSS-Protection.

    Thanks!

  7. Divert with a custom error page when an app service configured with IP Restrictions

    When an App Service is configured with an IP Restriction, only whitelisted IP's can access the App service URL/site. Other users cant access the URL. By default the blacklisted IP's or denied IP's will receive
    Error 403 - This web app is stopped. Many SR's can been be seen with this requirement to divert or return custom error message instead of 403 error. It would be great if we have a feature in portal to divert with custom message when the IP restrictions are configured for a web app.

  9. About displaying when there are features that are not available.

    If there are features that are not available in App Service, I want you to see why.

    For example, App Service on Linux support VNet integration.
    But Docker Compose function not support Virtual Network integration (Sep 2020, currently).
    We can't see "VNet Integration" item in portal, when Docker compose selected.
    I think it would be kinder to tell me why I can't see it.

  11. About access control for Hybrid Connections

    I want to configure RBAC (IAM) individually for Web App with hybrid connection, but I can only configure it per Web App.

    Also, although the actual status of the hybrid connection should be Service Bus, it can not be set because it is not displayed in the list.

    I would like to be able to configure RBAC (IAM) separately for Web App with hybrid connections.

  12. Hive ODBC

    We have webapps that is querying Hive on HDInsight which is working fine when hosted on on-prem IIS. We need Hive ODBC driver installed on the VM to get it works.

    But when we deploy on Azure App Service it's failing due to missing driver.

    Can Microsoft® Hive ODBC Driver installed on Azure App Service Environment & Azure Function please?

  14. App Service plan metrics that show load by apps running

    We run more than one app per hosting plan. In dev we have 63 apps on one plan (I know this isn't advised but it saves money for dev and illustrates the point). If we have one app that is eating most of the CPU or memory there is no simple way to find this at the app plan level, I have to look at 63 different screens or add 63 different counters to the same screen. The app plan has a 'per instance' button that is great for seeing how each node in the plan is doing but we…

  15. Use Azure Active Directory sign-in to protect a virtual directory in web app.

    Currently, the Authentication / Authorization blade for azure web apps does not have a specific configurations for protecting virtual directories. however, many business cases need to have the main site available for public but some pages (like admin pages) need to be protected by Azure AD

    Therefore, it will be great to use Azure Active Directory sign-in to protect a virtual directory in web app.

    Thank you,
    Raed Alahmad

  16. Can webjobs provide an API to monitor the status or send a notification when the job hangs up

    When our webjobs are running recently, we don't know why they are hung up. The status changes from running to pending restart. But I didn't get any hang up notification. I want to create a service to monitor it, and there is no corresponding API. Can webjobs provide an API to monitor the status or send a notification when the job hangs up?

  17. add warning for hyphens in connectionstring in setup for webapps for containers

    cfr. https://twitter.com/IBruyninckx/status/1121082148067401728?s=20

    I’d love to see a warning - at least - in the azure portal that connectionStrings with hyphens are a bad idea... that would prevent a lot of wasted debugging hours for others.

  18. CORS Feature in Static Web Apps (Preview)

    Hello! I would like to see the ability to setup CORS in Static Web Apps like you can for regular App Service.

    It would be VERY helpful to have this available, especially when using the service with no framework installed. For instance, having a script file or CSS file served from the static site, and used by my App Service. I can access the file when hitting it directly by URL, but when I try to link to a CSS file or JS file from one of my other Azure sites, for example, I can’t do so. When I try…

  19. auto scale default to set up based on a calendar date/time

    Under VMScaleSet AutoScalability config, we like to set the Default applicable only during a scheduled time (Say, set to 5 instances as default count during 6am-8am from Jan till April. For rest of the time and dates we like to shrink the Default to 1)

    Added a doc with snapshots and description.

  20. Function apps can specify runtime version by package.json

    Node Apps on App Service can specify version of Node runtime in "engines" section of package.json,
    But Function Apps(Runtime v2) cannot specify version by description of package.json, so they has to specify version of node by setting of WEBSITENODEDEFAULT_VERSION variable.
    Is this behavior by design?
