    • 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…

        • Support Dv2-series VMs in Standard tier

          Currently the Dv2-series of VMs are only supported in the Premium (V2) tier. Please support these VMs in the Standard tier for those who need to leverage the much-improved performance but who do not need (and cannot afford) all the expensive features of Premium.

            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,

          • Fix issue of not reconnecting after internet connection drop out for Microsoft Azure Hybrid Connection Manager

            Microsoft Azure Hybrid Connection Manager

            Recently our internet for our office has had some intermittent drop outs. This has been causing our hybrid connections in hybrid connection manager to end us as "Not Connected". I can resolve the issue by restarting the hybrid connection service however surely this service should be smart enough to try and reconnect?

            Christina Compy, Microsoft, acknowledges this issue but no fix ETA was given. URL: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/89cddf51-bc0e-498c-b202-6f7555147fd7/hybrid-connections-not-reconnecting-after-internet-connection-drop-out?forum=WAVirtualMachinesVirtualNetwork

            Can we get a fix please?

            • Add Application Initialization Support for Scale Up/Down

              The application initialization/warmup feature works great when scaling out/in, but when scaling up/down requests are immediately routed to the new instances before the application is warmed up. It would be great if the new instances could be warmed up before rerouting requests to them.

                • Allow Azure App Service IP Restriction configuration by PowerShell Script

                  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.

                      • "HTTPS Only" Setting Should Be Inherited With Configuration In Deploy Slot

                        We've set up a custom domain and purchased and installed security certificates. Everything works great for https, and we've switched on HTTPS Only in the Custom domain panel for our production slot.

                        Then, we created a new build with new features we developed in the latest sprint, created a new deploy slot, checked the box for the deploy slot to inherit its configuration settings from production, and... the HTTPS Only setting is switched to off, regardless of inheriting configuration settings.

                        We switch HTTPS Only back on in the deploy slot, go through our upload. When we swap the deploy slot…

                            • Git deployment pipeline broken

                              Beginning yesterday, 16.04.2018, the deployment pipelines of several customers' App Services (Linux web service) are partially broken. When the automated "composer update" attempts to run after doing "git push master" to Azure, we get errors that cause that update to fail based on PHP requirements not being fulfilled - the requirements are for extremely common extensions (at least zip, and xml) that had not been a problem prior to yesterday. How can this be fixed?

                                • Programmatically associating a Hybrid Connection to an Azure App Service is not possible

                                  I believe that there should be a capability added to Azure App Services to allow for programmatically associating existing Hybrid Connections to an App Service instance. This can be done manually via the portal as shown in the attached image but cannot be done via Powershell, Azure CLI, or Azure REST API. Any upcoming features for this? Or is this already possible but I haven't yet been able to find out how? Thank you.

                                    • Enable 'client certificate authentication' per directory

                                      I have a site that only part of it needs to be secured with client certificate authentication, it is able to be enabled on the site level but not the directory level as per this article.

                                      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service-web/app-service-web-configure-tls-mutual-auth

                                        Hi,
                                        thanks for the feedback. This is not currently possible as client cert auth on App Service is in require mode and as such cannot be delegated to folder level.

                                        We will review this item and your feedback, we may look to implement this capability based on customer prioritization.

                                        Thanks

                                        Andrew

                                        It's possible to prepay VM's, this will result in a lower cost, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/prepay-reserved-vm-instances

                                        It would be great to use these machines in WebApps. Or add these type of payment to the Web Apps.
