  1. 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?

  2. Can't copy application log settings to new created deployment slots.

    in Japanese.

    日本語で。

    診断ログでアプリケーションログ、サーバログを両方設定した状態でWebAppでデプロイメントスロットを複製して作ると、デプロイメントスロット側では、アプリケーションログの設定は複製されず、サーバログの設定は複製される。

    その状態でProductionにスワップすると、Production側の診断ログの設定もスワップされるため、結果として、アプリケーションログの設定されていない状態になる。これはシナリオとしておかしい気がする。バグではないか?

    診断ログの設定はスワップされないか、デプロイメントスロットを作成するときに完全に複製できるほうが正しいと思う。

    改善をしてほしい。以上

  3. Support KeyVault out of box in App Services Environment

    Currently ASE allows uploading of ILB certificates through script/portal.

    Provision to autopick certificate from Azure KeyVault using thumbprint should be made possible through script/portal

  4. 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

  5. Connecting to Azure DB for MySQL from Azure Web Apps (windows) fails when SSL is enabled on MySQL. mysql.exe --host=xxxxxxxx.mysql.database.

    Connecting to Azure DB for MySQL from Azure Web Apps (windows) fails when SSL is enabled on MySQL.

    mysql.exe --host=xxxxxxxx.mysql.database.azure.com --user=user@db --password="password" --ssl --ssl-ca=D:\home\data\BaltimoreCyberTrustRoot.crt.pem

    results in an error: ERROR 2026 (HY000): SSL connection error: socket layer receive error

    But Drupal config with SSL to MySQL works OK. MySQL CLI from desktop works OK. Issue appears to be specific with Azure Web Apps and MySQL client.

  6. Alert for when the App Service platform is scheduled for a new .NET Core version upgrade

    An alert should be raised when a .NET Core version upgrade is scheduled for the App Service platform. Ideally, the alert should occur well in advance of the actual upgrade to give application teams time to prepare.

  7. Allow easy conversion between 'web app' types, especially to/from API apps

    My team initially created our API on a web-app service, it seems like we're not alone. When we started experimenting with the API mgmt service, it wouldn't accept it for import. I had to delete the web-app, provision a new API-app, migrate the code to it and only then would API mgmt import it.

    For these cases, a conversion process to/from API-app would be very useful

  8. 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 WEBSITE_NODE_DEFAULT_VERSION variable.
    Is this behavior by design?

  9. 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…

  11. 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!
