      • Allow importing 3rd party ssl certs for use as app service certificates in app services/web apps

        Currently if I have an ssl certificate being used in multiple app services, when I renew that certificate I have to update the app services one by one or via powershell. It looks like using an app service certificate would solve this by allowing me to renew in one place and have it update each of the app services automatically. The problem being that I use 3rd party issued ssl certs vs ones created as app service certs in azure.

        Ideal would be to either allow uploading 3rd party ssl certs to be used as app service certs or offer…

            • azure web app allow tomcat server.xml configuration

              The default config for tomcat in azure web app is too restrictive since there is no option to edit server.xml. Its important for high traffic websites to configure parameters like maxThreads, minSpareThreads etc. to allow the server to take in spikes in requests. The kudu panel currently allows to open the server.xml file but it gives access denied message due to privilege issue.

              • Disaster Recovery for Azure WebApp

                Currently, we have to deploy the Azure WebApp twice, one in West Europe and other in North Europe to support Disaster Recovery.
                It means that we need to update the both WebApps if we want to deploy new artifacts in WebApp.
                It is very difficult to sync artifacts in both WebApps.
                It would be great if Azure provides the RA-GRS(Read-access geo-redundant storage) feature for WebApp like Azure SQL Database.
                With this feature the synching of artifacts between both WebApps done by RA-GRS feature.
                So we will not deploy the new artifacts in both web app, when we deploy the artifacts…

                • Allow developers to attach one or more File Storage to App Service in dashboard

                  We all miss the old and simple method in ASP.NET to store file by using Server.MapPath and File.Save to store user-uploaded file into the server.

                  I think if a developer can browse to App Service instance settings in the dashboard and attach a File Storage mapped as a separate drive in the web application, it will be revolutionary.

                  For example, if I have an Azure File storage, I should be able to map it to Z: drive in my App Service instance. Then when I develop the application, I can use file.Save(@"Z:\images\myfile.jpg") for example.

                  That file will be easily accessible…

                        Thank you for the feature request. We are aware of the major improvement Dv2 represents and we are constantly looking to improve our offerings. We have no plans right now but we will update here if this changes in the future.

                        Thanks,
                        Oded

                        At the moment an Azure App service has the ability to white list IP addresses through the Networking > IP Restriction blade. It would be useful if this could be configured through PowerShell.

                        • IPv6 - Create IP Restrictions

                          I would like the ability to create IPv6 restrictions for the web application. We're using a proxy in front of the web apps and it will pass traffic over both IPv4 and IPv6. We've setup the IPv4 restrictions to ensure everything is flowing through the proxy to get to the website but we're now having to disable IPv6 due to the limitation of Azure's inability to write IPv6 rules.

                                    • DNS resolution is not working in Azure Web App for Containers (linux)

                                      DNS resolution is not working in Web App for Containers (linux) when using custom docker image. The DHCP generated resolv.conf is broken. After using SSH to log in to the container trying nslookup google.com also fails with DNS resolution error.

                                      See my sample project for more details:

                                      https://github.com/henkosch/azure-webapp-dnstest

                                      The problem is also mentioned in the comments section on this page:

                                      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/app-service-linux-faq

                                      Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

                                      • Display slots should list their full name in the resource lists.

                                        When you are viewing resources in the "All Resources" blade or in the "Resource Group" blade all slots are just listed using only their slot name, if you have many different web apps that all use slots you will see the same name repeated several times (see "Example Resource Group.PNG").

                                        I suggest you display the name from the resources blade the same way you display it in the delete menu if you are deleting the base web app "BaseName-SlotName" (See "delete example.PNG")

                                        • Azure Web App auth customize WWW-Authenticate challenge

                                          Support authorization_uri in Azure AD Pre-Auth for Web Apps

                                          https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46908858/azure-web-app-auth-customize-www-authenticate-challenge

                                          According to some docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/develop/active-directory-protocols-oauth-code#use-the-access-token-to-access-the-resource), the WWW-authenticate header should return authorization_uri like this:

                                          HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
                                          WWW-Authenticate: Bearer authorization_uri="https://login.microsoftonline.com/contoso.com/oauth2/authorize", error="invalid_token", error_description="The access token is missing.",

                                          But since we use the pre-authentication features of Azure Web Apps, we can't control that directly from code.
