  2. Add naked domain support to App Service Managed Certificates

    Currently naked domains are not supported when creating App Service Managed Certificates. I want to be able to create a free SSL certificate on a naked/apex domain.

  4. Static Web Apps support for generic SCM and CI/CD

    Static Web Apps, still in public preview as I'm writing this, only seems to integrate with Github and Github Actions.
    Even if we love Github, it would make sense to allow:


    1. Other Git repo such as Azure Repo, Gitlab, Bitbucket, ...

    2. Other CI/CD tools such as Azure Pipelines, Bitbucket Pipelines, Jenkins, ...

    In other words, exactly like normal Web Apps today.

    .NET Framework 4.8 support is coming to App Service.

    Public Azure cloud deployment will begin in mid-late July 2020 completing by mid-September 2020. For our Sovereign clouds, deployment will begin by mid-late August 2020 and complete by early-October 2020.

    We will update this item periodically to inform you of the deployment progress.

    For more information, please see this blog post:

  6. Do not remove the Advanced Restart Feature

    An info bar for App Services > Diagnose and Solve Problems > Diagnostic Tools > Advanced Application Restart now states "Advanced Application Restart will be replaced with Application Health Check". Please leave the advanced restart option in place. The Health check should be an additive change, not a replacement, and certainly not a hard feature swap.

    We use advanced app restarts all the time. Health check restarts would solve those scenarios where an instance is in a fully degraded state, but it would miss other scenarios (like higher memory usage, but not yet critical; or a partially degraded instance). Also,…

  7. VNet NAT Gateway on App Service delegated subnet


    1. Delegate 'subnet1' to app services (webfarms).

    2. Create a VNet NAT service and assign it to 'subnet1'.

    3. Connect an app service to 'subnet1' using Regional VNet integration.

    4. Set web app setting WEBSITEVNETROUTE_ALL to 1.

    This should in theory route all outbound traffic from the web app into 'subnet1' and then out through the VNet NAT service.

    This would be a huge benefit for those who are stuck whitelisting an web app's outbound IP addresses which are tied to the App Service Plan. You can not easily move web apps between plans or just re-create your web app infrastructure because…

  8. 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.

  9. Support TLS client certificate inclusion paths

    Currently App Services support only exclusion paths for client certificate authentication. It would be good to have inclusion paths also.
    For example currently it is not possible to configure client certificate authentication with the following structure:
    / -> no authentication
    /api/ -> with client certificate authentication

  11. Add alternate validation methods for App Services Managed Certificates

    Please create an alternate method of validation for creating an App Services Managed Certificate. We use CloudFlare in front of our App Services, so the CNAME points to CloudFlare and not Azure. Consequently, validation fails. A preferable alternate solution would be to check if the domain the cert if being requested for is already a custom domain in the web app. If it is, since it you have already been validated as the owner of that domain, it should suffice for an app services managed cert. If you can't do that, then use a DNS TXT record for verification.

  13. 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…

  14. Allow use of MpCmdRun from App Service hosted applications

    It would be great if the instance of Windows Defender (MpCmdRun.exe) could be utilized from within applications hosted as Azure App Services. See here for more details - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/31840/unable-to-call-mpcmdrunexe-in-azure-app-service.html

    For what it's worth, it appears that there is even an internal Microsoft project that is blocked by this issue -

  15. Display multibyte characters on Web SSH

    Currently Web SSH cannot display multibyte character content (i.e. Japanse characters in log files) by cat command etc (see jpcharswebssh.jpg).
    But Kudu (bash) can do it (see jpchars
    kudu.jpg).

    Please support do it on Web SSH and provide current limitation about displaying text.

  16. Increase the custom host name limit on App Service

    Right now, there is a limit of 500 custom home name on app service. We've an app service where in we configure custom hostname for each of our client. And we hit the limti of 500. Work around is to host multiple app service but that is too much overhead.
    We hit similar limit on AWS Cloud front and they increase the limit right away. We may need to think as an alternate if this is the hard limit on Azure.
    Looking forward for positive response.

  17. Request to manage diagnostic settings for App Service Plan from Azure portal.

    We need to manage diagnostic settings for App Service Plan from the Azure portal like other resources.
    You can manage diagnostic settings for Many Azure services on the Azure portal. Some cx basically creates diagnostic settings on the Azure portal and checks the settings. This is because such a cx would like to easily manage them thanks to GUI operations.

    However, currently, you cannot manage diagnostic settings for App Service Plan on Azure portal. For this reason, it would be nice if we could create and read thes setting from the Azure portal like other diagnostic settings.

  18. BYO - Storage for Windows Web Apps

    It seems to me a little strange that I can mount Azure Files in App Service on Linux and Web App for Containers but not in standard/regular Web App.
    Our specific use case is a big web app spawned across more App Service Env under a Traffic Manager umbrella: for some kind of application logic a regular file system is better (more simple to use / less rework) than use the Storage API.

  19. Allow FrontDoor CNAME for App Service Managed Certificate validation

    When creating an App Service Managed Certificate, it should allow validation if the CNAME is pointing to a FrontDoor with the same domain (or the FrontDoor's backend is the same Web App).

    Currently it gives the error "Hostname not eligible for App Service Managed Certificates creation" since the CNAME is not directly pointing to the web app.

  20. NAT Gateway for App Services (aka WebJobs) for fixed outbound IP too

    WebJob can be attached to VNet, yet it still has a pool of outbound IP addresses to choose from. It would be great to extend the feature for the fixed outbound IP of NAT to App Services like WebJob. It is really bad not to have this for years now and to resort to far more expensive solutions just because we need a fixed outbound IP.
